1957: New York Beltone Studios
Precise date of this recording session is not known, but it was in the late fall (perhaps December) of 1957. In the recording session Nina recorded 14 tracks. Eleven tracks are on the first LP Little Girl Blue published February 1959. Two tracks, "I Loves You Porgy" and "Love Me or Leave Me" were also published as single Juny 1959, reaching the 13th place on R&B charts.

In the beginning of 1959, Nina signed with Colpix (Colombia Pictures Records). Before publication of the first Colpix album, Bethlehem released And Her Friends that included the three tracks not yet published, plus "I Loves You Porgy", as well as four other tracks by Chris Connor and four others by Carmen McRae.



Late in 1957, Gus Wildi was given a recording by one of his "talent scouts," Lee Kraft. It was a classical/jazz pianist and singer named Nina Simone, and Wildi liked what he heard. Kraft brought her to the Bethlehem office and Wildi signed her immediately. Wildi told her that as was the policy at Bethlehem, she could record whatever she wanted, and to set up a recording session. Simone asked her friend Jimmy Bond to play bass on the session, and told Bond to find a drummer. Bond brought in his friend Albert "Tootie" Heath, and the three became "The Nina Simone Trio". They recorded 14 songs in one 14-hour session at Beltone, with Beltone engineer Irv Greenbaum. Nina went home thinking that someday she might possibly be famous and her life would change, but nothing happened for a long time. In fact, Bethlehem was about to go under.
...
Wildi selected eleven songs for Nina Simone's album and got Chuck Stewart, Dinah Washington's photographer, to shoot some photos in Central Park for the cover. The cover had her name, then in smaller letters, "Jazz as Played in an Exclusive Side Street Club." On the back slick and label was the actual title of the record, Little Girl Blue. He got Joseph Muranyi, a writer he had used for other albums, to write liner notes for the album. Simone's one-year contract was coming up for renewal late in the year 1958, and according to Nina, Syd Nathan appeared on her door in New York one day with a list of songs he wanted her to record. She basically told him to take a hike, and that her agreement with Gus Wildi was that she could record what she wanted. Nathan felt that nobody could talk to him like that. When Wildi approached him about renewing Nina Simone's contract, Nathan told him pointedly that they weren't going to renew her, and they didn't need her. Nathan stalled the release of the album from its scheduled September, 1958, release, to after her contract was up. When it was finally released in February, 1959, he arranged for minimal promotion for the album.
Promotion or not, a Philadelphia disc jockey named Sid Mark, who had met Nina and heard her play, bought a copy and loved it. He started playing the album on the radio, and was particularly taken by what was called "Porgy" on original album pressings (second pressings of both the album and original single were later corrected to "I Loves You, Porgy.") His listeners also loved the song, and started requesting it a lot. He thought that surely if the song were released as a single, it would be a hit, so he called the offices of Bethlehem/King in Cincinnati. He was told to forget it, that it was just a local thing, and they had no intention of releasing it. Nina Simone herself called to talk to Syd Nathan several times, trying to tell him that the song was really popular in Philly. Nathan either hung up on her or made sure he was "unavailable." Meanwhile, Gus Wildi was traveling all over the Northeast with a stack of the Little Girl Blue albums under his arm, trying to get airplay.

Finally, the song started catching on in New York City, and Nathan reluctantly released it as a single in June, 1959. By that time Nina had already signed with Colpix Records, and was preparing an album for them. Reviewed in Billboard's June 8, 1959, issue, "Porgy" was given a tepid review and two stars. But it entered Billboard's R&B charts the week of June 22, eventually reaching #2, and entered the Billboard Hot 100 pop charts in August, eventually reaching #18. It did even better on the pop charts of the other trades, making #15 in Cash Box and #11 in Record World. It was easily the biggest hit Bethlehem ever had.
-Mike Callahan and David Edwards The Bethlehem Records Story



There was good news and bad news during '58 ... The good news concerned the signing of Nina Simone. Bethlehem was, at that point being distributed through King Records of Cincinnati, a company owned by Syd Nathan, a myopic, asthmatic, overweight who'd nudged into the record industry as a producer of country records before switching to R&B and turning King into a great repository of black music, one that boasted such stars as James Brown, Wynonie Harris, Little Willie John, Bill Doggett, Freddie King and many others.
Nathan had heard a tape of Simone, made when the singer-pianist played the New Hope Playhouse Inn. "Next day," she recalls, "he turned up at my house. He had a bunch of songs he expected me to play and a list of musicians he wanted me to use as my studio band."
But Nathan had never encountered an artist like Nina. She would only record on her own terms. Eventually, the 14-hour session that produced her debut album was set up, most of the songs being those she sang on her club dates, the final song of the session being "My Baby Just Cares For Me". When the album surfaced, one track, "I Loves You Porgy" was played to death by DJ Sid Marx at a Philadelphia R&B station. And slowly, as the rest of the country caught on, Nina Simone became a chart item.
-Fred Dellar Bethlehem Records



I went into the studio and recorded my songs exactly as I always played them, so when you listen to that Bethlehem album you're hearing the songs played as they were at the Midtown Bar. The only difference is that you don't get to hear the improvisations that I wove around those numbers in my live set. "I Loves You, Porgy" was the song I sang for Ted.
