Product description

Product Description

· The late, great ESTHER PHILLIPS was one of the most distinctive vocalists in contemporary music, so accomplished in R&B, soul, blues and jazz that she defied easy categorization

· After her global success in the mid-`70s with a remake of `What A Diff'rence A Day Makes,' Esther signed a four-album deal with Mercury Records, recording home to her primary musical influences, Dinah Washington

· Her Mercury debut (`You've Come A Long Way Baby') was produced by her then-musical director, Pee Wee Ellis (the famed former James Brown sideman) and featured a dazzling diversity of material, from the blues tune, `You've Been A Good Ole Wagon' to Van Morrison's `Into The Mystic' and a disco remake of The Platters' `My Prayer' ," a previously unreleased 9:07 mix of which is being made available for the first time on the CD!

· Esther's second Mercury LP ("All About Esther") was produced by Wayne Henderson (of The Jazz Crusaders), featured a number of star players and includes a great cover of Odyssey's `Native New Yorker.'

· Notes by Soul Music.com founder David Nathan - who knew Esther well and interviewed her many times - include quotes from producers Ellis and Henderson.
