Five CD set. The late Esther Phillips has often been considered one of the 'unsung' pioneers in the world of R&B, stretching back to the early '50s when as a child star working with famed bandleader Johnny Otis, she enjoyed a run of chart-topping singles at the age of 15, making her the youngest female artist to ever have an #1 R&B hit at the time. The Texas-born vocalist returned in 1962 with a soulful version of the country hit, 'Release Me' for Lenox Records, subsequently signing with Atlantic Records for whom she recorded a total of four full albums between 1964-1970 with a brief spell at Roulette Records in 1969. Produced by SoulMusic Records founder David Nathan, Brand New Day - The Lenox/Atlantic & Roulette Recordings is a sumptuous first-of-it's-kind box set, consisting of (102) tracks of Esther's work in a variety of different musical settings, sequenced by session and containing a number of previously unreleased cuts as well as non-album singles making their CD debut. An 8,000-word informative and extensive essay by renowned UK writer Charles Waring, alongside superb mastering by Nick Robbins and first class artwork by Roger Williams make this box set an overdue celebration of Esther Phillips' glorious artistry, in particular as a commemoration of her passing in August, 1984 at the age of 48.
