A great record. A great voice (she's got that shlang goin' on). I got it because it has one of THE BEST versions of Your Love Is So Doggone Good I have ever heard (more great versions of this masterpiece boner jam to come on affectionandos). It just makes me squinch with joy. Other highlights include Home Is Where the Hatred Is, Baby, I'm for Real, and Scarred Knees. Enjoy

Tracks:
1 Home Is Where the Hatred Is
2 From a Whisper to a Scream
3 To Lay Down Beside You
4 That's All Right with Me
5 'Till My Back Ain't Got No Bone
6 Sweet Touch of Love
7 Baby, I'm for Real
8 You Love Is So Doggone Good
9 Scarred Knees

This song isn't from the above album but it's the one that originally sold me on Esther:

  1. mmmmh, mmmmh, mmmmh...home is where the needle marks try to heal my broken heart...
    I absolutely LOVE a street-wise sista. Not sure if I buy the vulnerability, though...this here's a headstrong female who dun been there and back a few times. Don't bother callin the po-po, cuz you just got a size 11.5 leather pump to the back of yo damn two-timin' jheri-curled-dome.
    I, too, am squinching with joy.

    PHILLIPS! We must always keep her alive in memory!
