Song of the Day: Esther Phillips, “What A Difference A Day Makes”

R&B chanteuse Esther Phillips would be 85 today. I saw her in concert at Ratso’s in Chicago many years ago, when she was starting to make a comeback with this record, "What A Difference A Day Makes," a disco reworking of Dinah Washington’s 1959 hit. It reached #2 on the Disco chart, #20 on the Hot 100, #10 on the R&B chart, and #6 in the UK.
