Shawn Phillips
Contribution

SP 4241


Soft-rock/folk singer and songwriter Shawn Phillips recorded prolifically for A&M during most of the 1970s. He is a native of Fort Worth, TX, born Feb. 3, 1943.

Liner notes excerpt: The Shawn Phillips music. Kaleidoscopic and organic. Flowing. Living for a time. Incorporating every musical style from Bulgarian to quarter tone to African. But going its own way. Fulfilling one of the prerequisities of art - It doesn't leave you feeling quite the same.

Side One: Manhole Covered Wagon 4:34/ L Ballade 6:47/ Not Quite Nonsense 1:45/ No Question 3:37.

Side Two: Withered Roses 8:18/ For RFK, JFK and MLK 4:54/ Lovely Lady 4:56/ Screamer for Phlyses 6:09.

All titles written by Shawn Phillips/ Published by Dick James Music Inc. BMI/ Producer Jonathan Weston for Philjo Music Inc./ Engineer Robin Cagle at Trident Studios, London, England/ Art Direction Tom Wilkes/ Photography Jim McCrary.

CD availability: The Phillips catalog has been faithfully and thoroughly reissued, and CONTRIBUTION along with the other titles are available from Phillips' site and elsewhere. The cover art for SP 4241 is the icon at the far left. Click on it to view scans of Shawn's catalog.

Saturday's mail contained a newspaper-style ad from Collectors Choice announcing a huge sale on overstocked discs. Included is a 3-for-$27 deal on the Shawn Phillips' catalog, including the reissue of SP 4241 and others, including some pre-A&M for the completist.
