Description by OLDIES.com:

Esther Phillips was also amazingly versatile and successful in the R&B, blues, jazz, and soul fields. On "And I Love Him" Esther does what the album's subtitle says: she "Sings Great Love Songs." This albums is wonderfully complemented by "Esther Sings," a lovely collection of standards that she sings in her own individual and totally winning style. Ray Ellis both arranged and conducted many tracks on this release.

Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: AND I LOVE HIM (1965)/ESTHER (1966).
Includes original release liner notes by Jack "Pearshape" Walker.
Liner Note Author: Jack Walker.
Arrangers: Jimmy Wisner; Oliver Nelson; Ray Ellis.
This Collectables compilation packages Esther Phillips' first two LPs for Atlantic, 1965's And I Love Him! and the following year's Esther Phillips Sings. Gradually switching from an R&B chart name to a pop singer with a subtle power over the blues and jazz, Phillips didn't hit the charts much during the year ("And I Love Him" was the big exception), but she did record great versions of some solid material: "Shangri-La," "It's All Right With Me," "Every Time We Say Goodbye," and others. The sound is solid as well, leaving this collection as a great next step after the Atlantic wrap-up, The Best of Esther Phillips (1962-1970). ~ John Bush
