-- "[The] album saw her tackle more emotion-sapping country standards...providing cathartic salve for hearts cruelly ripped apart."
Personnel: Esther Phillips (vocals).
Featuring highlights of THE COUNTRY SIDE OF ESTHER and her SET ME FREE album (both of which are also available as a budget-priced twofer), RELEASE ME contains many examples of the R&B singer Esther Phillips's versatility. Included are one of her first hits, "Double Crossing Blues," and the rocking "Mojo Hanna," as well as more country-oriented material like the title track and "I Really Don't Want to Know."
