    Simple question - are there any good vinyl versions out there at modest cost, say below £30?

    There are almost countless releases of the album, including many recent ones bypassing copyright.
    Some, by no means all, are listed here - https://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/nina-simone/little-girl-blue-21/ - for instance, the 2013 Bethlehem release on Amazon UK has a different ASIN to any on rateyourmusic - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Little-Gir...ittle+Girl+Blue&qid=1574364367&s=music&sr=1-5

    Cut my losses and buy CD? If so, which CD version?

    Pure Pleasure Mono & Analogue Productions Stereo 33 & 2x45 best versions
    both are AAA versions

    On the strength of this AP edition — which I’ve heard countless times on standard pressings — one could easily be converted to 45rpm, despite the cost. Even as a regular LP, Simone’s 1957 debut is a milestone among jazz vocal albums. her piano is as big a star as her voice, while ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ will cause you to shudder — Sound Quality: 90% — Ken Kessler, Hi Fi News

    I heard Analogue productions and made the mistake of not buying it. Same old story, buy crap buy twice

    Well, I bought the AP issue and it has to be the oddest record ever. It is dual mono, not stereo - each instrument or voice plays via only one speaker or the other, so that there is no soundstage or anything like.
    Mastering/recording/pressing quality is superb...……………..

    I bought the Muddy Waters, Folk Singer recording at the same time - real stereo.

    Ya -early stereo was pretty weird when it came to soundstaging. Own several Stereo Dinah Washingtons on Mercury that sound great except for the band in the left corner -Dinah in the right . Finally found a mono of the same record which I enjoy more.
