This album marks the first time that Phillips worked with producer T Bone Burnett. The two would marry not long after the release of this album and Burnett would go on to produce more albums for the singer. The Turning stands out as a turning point in Phillips' career as a singer and songwriter; on one side, the cheerful, upbeat pop-rock albums that she recorded in the early 1980s, and, on the other, the quirky 60's.

Leslie Phillips (Sam Phillips - God Is Watching You (3:48). Leslie Phillips - River Of Love (2:46). Released at a crucial turning point (hence the title) in her life; this album oozes a raw reality that so many of us can relate to! Saying this; this album also delivers great hope in tracks like Answers Don't Come Easy, River Of Love, and title track The Turning. A distraught lady under more pressure than she could deal with. I still pray that, like He did with me, The Father will bring her back.
