Several days later, on April 7th, Nina Simone performed at the Westbury Music Fair. The following three songs, performed that evening (including Why? (The King of Love is Dead), which was a special tribute penned by Nina's bassist Gene Taylor, for the first time) were later dubbed the "Martin Luther King Suite."
With the exception of Mississippi Goddam, these songs can be found on Nina's album 'Nuff Said, although they're edited and the show is incomplete. If anyone reading this is aware of a complete and unedited recording of the show that night, please let me know about it.
