ESTHER PHILLIPS - HOME IS WHERE THE HATRED IS - UK. KUDU
This is a painfully, brilliant version of the song written by Gil Scott-Heron of 'The Bottle' fame.
Esther was born in 1935 in Galveston, Texas and was discovered when she was 14 years of age in a talent contest held in a club owned by Johnny Otis. Johnny took her on tour and billed her as 'Little Esther Phillips'.
She passed away in 1984 in Carson, California from liver failure, after suffering for many years with drug and alcohol problems.
