esther phillips: you've come a long way, baby/all about esther (smcr2-5006)"šÂ¢

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"šÂ¢ after her global success in the mid-"¹Ã…“70s with a remake of…"what a diffrence a day makes,"šÂ

esther signed a four-album deal with mercury records, recording home to her primary musical influences, dinah washington"šÂ¢ her mercury debut (…"youve come a long way baby"šÂ) 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,…"youve been a good ole wagon"šÂ to van morrisons…"into the mystic"šÂand a disco remake of the platters…"my prayer,"šÂ a previously unreleased 9:07 mix of which is being made available for the first time on the cd!"šÂ¢

esthers second mercury lp (…"all about esther"šÂ) was produced by wayne henderson (of the jazz crusaders), featured a number of star players and includes a great cover of odysseys…"native new yorker."šÂ* the albums contain two of esther's brilliant trademark monologues/raps on "i've never been a woman before" and "there you go again" which give a real insight into a woman who was witty, sharp and earthy"šÂ¢ notes by soul founder david nathan, who knew esther well and interviewed her many times, include quotes from producers ellis and henderson.
