Catalogue Number: ACRCD213
Here we present 24 tracks charting the early recording career of “Little” Esther Phillips. Esther Phillips began recording at the age of 13, having been discovered by the legendary Johnny Otis. She enjoyed a string of hits with Otis’ Orchestra in the late 50’s, all of which are included here. She then went on to enjoy success as a solo artist, and was also acclaimed as a leading exponent of her art. Her instantly recognisable blues drenched vocals always belied her very young age. Her career enjoyed a renaissance in the late 70’s with a string of jazz/fusion/disco recordings including the massive international hit “What a Difference A Day Makes”.
