Half a century after Louisiana Swamp Pop singer Phil Phillips wrote that haunting, pleading song to woo a girlfriend, Sea Of Love
still lingers in the collective consciousness of millions. It hit #1 in the R&B charts in the fall of 1959 and #2 in the pop charts. It has since taken on a larger-than-life MYTHOLOGY. Recorded by scores of artists as diverse as B. J. Thomas
, Freddy Fender
, the Heptones
, Cat Power
, and Iggy Pop
, Phil Phillips' original Sea Of Love
is still far and away the CLASSIC. The reason why is the VOICE of Phil Phillips, which is still strong today. The CD contains all of his original Khoury/Mercury recordings features NINE TOTALLY UNISSUED TRACKS, including Phil's darkly powerful interpretation of 'Unchained Melody'! This HISTORIC CD is a MUST HAVE for all fans of classic R&B, Swamp Pop, Rock 'n' Roll, and just soul-inspiring, TIMELESS, balladry.
