Forbidden Fruit is an album by the jazz riter Nina Simone. It was her second studio album for Colpix. The rhythm section accompanying her is the same trio as on both live albums before and after this release. Gin House Blues", Simone re-recorded this song in a more upbeat way on Nuff Said (1968). Work Song", written by Oscar Brown, Jr and Nat Adderley tells the story of a chain gang.

Forbidden Fruit -her terrific 1961 Colpix release-features No Good Man; Gin House Blues; Work Song; Memphis in June, and more. 17 songs in all. Track Listings. In late 1969, I first heard the album "Nina's Choice"; a Colpix (Columbia Pictures) compilation of Ms. Simone's fine recordings for that label.
