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.

I really enjoy listening to this CD. To be fair, there is very little that I don't enjoy listening to by Esther.

She had the ability to sound in one song sexy and sassy and then sentimental and vulnerable in the next song.

This CD has that mix. Buy it.

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!
