Just Like A Woman

I bought a copy of Nina Simone's 1971 album Here Comes The Sun at a car boot sale in the summer for £2.

Nina Simone - Here Comes The Sun (1971)

Here Comes The Sun is an album of cover versions recorded with an orchestra, including the title track, Dylan's Just Like A Woman, Angel Of The Morning and My Way.  The best track by far is her version of Mr Bojangles.  It's the most moving version of this song (by Jerry Jeff Walker) I've ever heard.

Other top tracks (Spotify):  Nina Simone – Just Like A Woman
