Nina Simone's Emergency Ward includes live performances and several George Harrison covers. Simone further embraced George Harrison on this album devoting over half of it to his music. Another politically charged set, this part live album has it's cover daubed in Vietnam war newspaper cuttings. It may only have four songs, but the album still stretches to over 33 minutes thanks to the charged "My Sweet Lord"/"Today Is A Killer" medley.
