Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Austin Powell.
Originally released in 1962, shortly after Ray Charles's groundbreaking MODERN SOUNDS IN COUNTRY AND WESTERN MUSIC, Esther Phillips' RELEASE ME: REFLECTIONS OF COUNTRY AND WESTERN GREATS isn't nearly so well known, but is a similarly impressive melding of rhythm and blues soul with country and western heartbreak. Phillips's warm voice is made for vintage songs of love lost, as heard on the title track and "Why Should We Try Anymore." And her take on even darker material such as "No Headstone On My Grave" makes the often-gloomy likes of Porter Wagoner sound comparatively lightweight.
