1962 November 25: New York CBS Camera Three
Not shy about trying out new material, Simone gave one of her first performances of "Eretz" for a national television audience on the CBS program Camera Three in the fall of 1962. Simone had just brought a new percussionist into her combo, Montego Joe, and she gave him star billing. He opened her interpretation of the song by beating out a crisp rhythm on the dumbeq, his specially made hourglass drum, as the camera homed on his fast-moving hands. Simone picked up the vocals, and her fellow musicians, heads bobbing, followed suit.
