The Folks Who Live on the Hill  performed by  Little Jimmy Scott  (1972)
Composed by Hammerstein-Kern
From: USA
Recommended by tinks [profile] on Tuesday 24th July 2001

Jimmy Scott turns in a monumental take on this Jerome Kern & Oscar Hammerstein standard. Scott's languid feminine phrasing and incredible diction really cause him to stand head and shoulders above nearly all other jazz vocalists. In this performance, he takes material that could come out rather saccharine and injects a healthy dose of pain into it. The result is a throughly memorable, soulful ballad. Due to Scott's lack of a record contract, this recording remained unreleased until 1993.
