Esther Phillips

  • Label: Atlantic
  • Cat.No.: AT4028
  • Genre: Soul Originals


Under the tutelage and directorship of bandleader Johnny Otis she had many RnB Hits in the 50's recording as Little Esther. Towards the end of that decade her career took a downturn when Otis left the label they had been recording and her heroin addiction took hold. After recovering she returned to Atlantic in '65 and recorded this Lennon-McCartney sone in that period. It took her to the US RnB and Pop Charts. The Beatles are reputed to have voted it their favourite interpretation of one of their songs.
