Baltimore is an album by Nina Simone. After completing the album, Nina expressed her dissatisfaction with it on numerous occasions, mainly because she had no say in the arrangements, selection of songs and the cover picture. Despite this, critics were positive about the album and it gave a resurgence to Nina's then fading career.[2]
