Shawn Phillips’ Classic Concert Tapes To Be Released

This artist may have never shone a superstar he deserved to be, but Shawn Phillips‘ glorious run in the ’70s remains unforgettable to such an extent that the veteran’s song was chosen to accompany figure skating performances and was heard at the 2022 Winter Olympics – and that’s without recalling the American musician’s collaborators whose line-up included Steve Winwood, Rick Wakeman and Paul Buckmaster, which is mark of quality in itself. So there’s little surprise in the alluring of a 51-track collection titled “Live In The Seventies” and scheduled to hit the shelves on June 10th.

The three-disc set spans the period from 1973 to 1978 and features material from eight concerts, where Phillips’ repertoire allows the listener to enjoy the on-stage versions of most of the “Second Contribution” album and the “Bright White” and “Furthermore…” LPs, and a nice portion of “Collaboration” as well as half of “Faces” and more than a half of “Transcendence” alongside other numbers, so it’s a fantastic journey through Shawn’s catalogue wherein there’s been no live entry. Until now. Indispensable. Read the review.
