5.0 out of 5 stars superb 1972 Harlem Soul, very real, very Esther 28 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Another CTI label underground masterpiece from Esther Phillips. Mix of laid back super-chilled soul-jazz, a couple of mellow funky numbers with electric piano, tight drums, all an eclectic blend of Esther's searing and haunting vocals with creme de la creme backing musicians Billy Cobham, Bernard Purdie, George Benson, Ralph Tee, Eric Gale and Maceo Parker from the James Brown band (The JBs) and later Parliament. Esther Philips produced superb music whilst sometimes battling drug problems, this resonates in her music and although she passed away at 48 she left a legacy of unforgettable soul music and a beautifully recorded voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars esther, naturally 31 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Another excellent album by Ms Phillips. I have this on album and glad to now have it on cd. I love her interpretation of Gilbert O Sullivan's Alone again naturally,slightly quicker than the original. This is the album where ' never found a man' first surfaced - This is a great track as are all the others. A must for Esther fans. Awaiting the Cd release of 'Capricorn Princess' if it ever happens!

5.0 out of 5 stars The finest cover ever period 5 Feb 2010
By Comment Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Unlike many contemporary music fans, I value cover versions. And there are many many cover versions of great quality. I am reviewing this CD for a single reason--the greatest single cover in all contemporary music. This is not an understatement. Alone Again, Naturally may be one of the bathetic songs of the rock and roll era--but Esther Philips transforms it. Her rhythm is simply perfect--she hits the beat with an emotional intensity that literally brings tears to my eyes. The song itself wallows in self pity, but Esther refuses to submit--she is almost glorious in her pain. The playing is wonderful, and the drum part may be the strongest in soul music--which is quite a statement i realize but true.

While the CD is worth buying for this single track, the entire CD is a triumph and amazing. A forgotten classic--quite frankly, nobody in American music--not even Billie Holiday--transformed her pain into art as well as Esther Philips.
