Anthology masterpiece...Bravo Esther! 23 Feb. 2004
By Bradly Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nobody could do with a song what this classic but sadly overlooked Unsung great singer could do when it comes to raw earthy emotion with a rough gritty edge. Esther could get in to deep soul with a street smart sense like a female Curtis Mayfield or do a classic torch song such as "I Haven't Got Anything Better To Do" with so much beauty and emotion that her version would be the definitive one every time! Once hooked on this masterful artist one will go back for more over and over again and this satisfying Anthology covers a decade of Esther and some five albums are represented here...for my taste this collection should have been at least a double set but for now this will do for those hungry for Esther on compact disc. Esther was another legend gone too soon at a young age twenty years ago and miss looking for a new release from her or going to see her hypnotizing audiences in concert like only she could do. Esther masterpiece is one of the greatest albums of all time by any vocalist and "From A Whisper To A Scream" is a legendary work for its amazing variety of great songs and stunning performances & Aretha Franklin was completely blown away when the "Grammy Award" went to her instead of Esther so she gave it to Esther, a brave & bold gesture to a fellow artist who was clearly deserving...a first in Grammy history and always admired Lady Soul for this incredibly unselfish act. From this masterpiece come the opener "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" a searing performance with Esther going deep inside this great song giving the performance of a lifetime. Esther does justice to Carole King's "Brother, Brother" and Bill Withers "Use Me" is awesome. "Stormy Weather" gets a great funky workout and she makes these standards her own. Esther scored with huge international hit "What A Difference A Day Makes" with Jeff Beck and they burn the groove making this old standard a new classic in the seventies!Equally hot is a killer version of "Native New Yorker" makinge hit version pale in comparison. Stand-outs abound and "Changing" is like a wild roller coaster ride you don't want to end while "You Think Of Him (You Think Of Her)" is hypnotic and wildly funky. Easy to go on about every great track here but best to just go ahead and order this timeless collection...guaranteed Esther is a life changing experience and once this legendary lady gets under your skin you will want everything this tremendous artist recorded...all is great!
Bravo Esther, miss you and RIP great lady...

The Great Late Esther Phillips: The Later Years 13 Sept. 2006
By Truth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Esther Phillips's voice is very distinctive; much like that of Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, and Macy Gray, it is an acquired taste. It may indeed be a voice one will either Love or Hate.

ANTHOLOGY is a UK-made non-chronological compilation consisting of 18 of Ms. Esther Phillips's recordings on Kudu (1971-1977, tracks 1-10) and Mercury (1977-1981, tracks 11-18) record labels. Booklet includes an essay by David Nathan, five quarter-to-half page photos, minimal track information, and no lyrics.

This is only for the most devoted of Esther fans; there are only two tracks on "Anthology" not included in the Australian import "Home Is Where the Hatred Is: The Kudu Years 1971-1977" [2004] or the UK import "The Best of the Mercury Years" [2006]: Carole King's "Brother Brother" (from the 1990 re-issue of 1971's "From a Whisper to a Scream") and 1976's "All the Way Down" (previously recorded by Esther's friend Etta James).

As with most of Esther's music, this collection spans the genres of Blues, Soul, Jazz, Pop, Rock, R&B, and Funk. There is even some Disco (a re-interpretation of the standard "What a Diff'rence a Day Makes").

Since there is no comprehensive Esther Phillips disc and no boxed set available, I would recommend the following: The Rhino 2-disc set "The Best of Esther Phillips 1962-1970" [1997], "Home Is Where the Hatred Is: The Kudu Years 1971-1977" [2004], and "The Best of the Mercury Years" [2006]. She also had an earlier career as Little Esther; there is no comprehensive compilation of those recordings either, but there are a number of re-issues of Little Esther recordings.

I am partial to her later recordings. I wish her post-Mercury material was available (she recorded singles for several independent labels and her appropriately-titled final album "A Way to Say Goodbye" for the Muse label, which includes "No Where to Run"). I'd recommend "Anthology" as an alternative to getting both the Kudu and Mercury compilations; but the Kudu set includes some of my favorite Esther tracks: "I Can Stand a Little Rain", "Disposable Society", and the phenomenal "Justified".

Since "Anthology" is an import, the price can fluctuate greatly, so proceed with caution.

Bold Soul Sister 27 Nov. 2004
By Marc200 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In the wrong hands "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" would be hard to appreciate. Gil Scott-Heron's version is a strung out, personal counterpart to Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues" and it is very "male" -- angry, unapologetic and confrontational. The idea of a woman singing it is almost distasteful. Of course, Esther Phillips has always been unique; she channels rage and despair in equal measure, and her version is a masterpiece. Although the funky backing track is somewhat dated -- or some would say "vintage". "Home" is the highlight of this compilation and coming in a close second is the slow-burning "From A Whisper To A Scream" . Phillips is an acquired taste, if you only like sweet, pretty voices then she's not the one. Her tart, bluesy delivery is vaguely reminiscent of Dinah Washington but also evokes bits of Billie Holiday and Nina Simone -- without ever truly sounding like any of these ladies or anyone else. She imbues the finest moments here with a guttural pathos: "I Haven't Got Anything Better To Do" and "That's Allright With Me". Her super-funky version of the oft-covered "Use Me" is easily one of the best. "Brother, Brother" is another strong cover. The disco-ish material is the weakest link, the muzak-like arrangements undermine her interpretative gifts on "Native New Yorker" and "What A Diff'rence A Day Made". The one exception is the chugging cover of Sharon Ridley's "Changin'". This is a very solid compilation and is one of my favorite purchases of 2004.
