Rhino Entertainment is the label co founded by Richard Foos and Harold Bronson in 1978. Beginning with novelty records, then branching into archival reissues and definitive anthologies and various-artists series, the partners and their ever-growing staff of informed eccentrics found that a growing audience shared their diverse musical tastes and uncompromising commitment to quality. The same was true when they established Rhino Home Video in 1985 to reach the market for oddball cult films and classic TV programs, and Kid Rhino in 1991 to gain a foothold in the rapidly expanding children's marketplace.
Through the years, Rhino also became involved in social and environmental issues, fostering ethical practices in its day-to-day business, supporting numerous charitable groups, and promoting community service by Rhino employees. In the year 1998 Rhino became a part of the Warner Music Group. Throughout the changes we've undergone, the spirit and commitment of Rhino remain the same as the day we started. We look forward to releasing CDs and videos-with the same high quality and irreverent attitude that you've come to expect-for many years to come.

The now-legendary Nina Simone began her recording career in 1959, after briefly studying classical piano at Juilliard and performing at an Atlantic City nightclub where the club's owner allegedly ordered her to sing as she played. Simone specializes in the eclectic, and her personal variety of musical magic is without equal. With her androgynous, deeply burnished vocals and her extraordinary, classically influenced piano technique, Simone refashions any song to fit her own fiercely artistic vision. Always cutting edge, her sound has influenced and continues to influence other artists. NINA'S CHOICE is a reissue of a fine 1963 compilation of favorite tracks that Simone selected from her five prior albums on the Colpix label. Every song is a stunner. The insanely quirky "Rags and Old Iron" sounds like something off a Tom Waits album. The strange, slow tango of "Just Say I Love Him" features the brilliantly haunting guitar work of Al Shackman, Simone's longtime guitarist. Also included here is a rollicking version of the traditional "Little Liza Jane," a highpoint of Simone's appearance at Newport in 1960. This thoughtfully selected compilation is well worth owning.
