The first record deal Nina signed was with Bethlehem Records. She signed away the rights to all her early recordings in exchange for $3,000, which no doubt sounded like a lot of money at the time. However, it would ultimately go on to cost her a fortune.
After Simone realised her mistake and signed to Colpix Records, Bethlehem put out a cobbled together compilation of outtakes for a second album 'Nina Simone and Her Friends'. However, it wasn’t until 1987, when 'My Baby Just Cares for Me', a hitherto pretty much ignored song from her debut album, exploded in Europe due to it's inclusion on a Chanel 5 advert, that it really hit her pocket. The song was a hit all over Europe and made Nina, no money whatsoever.
