Hi,

If you're talking about Ain't Got No - I Got Life it was a studio recording. However it was released with overdubbed applause on the 'Nuff Said album in 1969, probably because this album consisted mostly of real live recordings.

The track was also released as a single, which I have never heard, so I don't know if it had any fake applause.

The actual studio recording without the fake applause can be found on The Very Best of Nina Simone - Sugar In My Bowl 1967 - 1972 which is an excellent 2-disc anthology of her RCA years.
