guitarleaves Vintage – I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel to be Free

103961-Nina_Simone_617_409Written by Billy Taylor and Dick Dallas but given fame by the 1967 recording featuring Nina Simone, “I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel to be Free” has made today’s guitarleaves Vintage feature because of its soulful lyrics and bluesy gospel. With our only criticism being the incredulously long title, it seems a terrible shame to let this song die with age. Miss. Emeli Sande is also a fan, and  performed her cover of this very song on her UK tour last year.
