Shawn PhillipsSpaced ... LP
A&M, 1977. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Wonderful! Shawn Phillips started his career as a shaggy folk rocker with a bit of a jazzy twinge – but this album collects odd bits and pieces that were left off of earlier albums, and works perfectly as a record that shows a whole new side of his genius! The album shows Phillips as a master of the funky jazz groove – and although he's still singing on some of the songs, he also lets loose with a number of instrumental cuts, laid out in a tight well-produced mode that puts them up there with some of the best work coming out on labels like Fantasy or Blue Note during the mid 70s. The centerpiece of these is the massive long cut "We Came To Say Goodbye", which builds and builds over the course of 15 minutes, with cool keyboards, great guitar, and the kind of tightly compressed grooves you'd expect to find on a Headhunters album (no surprise, since Headhunters Mike Clark, Bill Summers, and Paul Jackson are on the cut!) Other instrumental tracks include "Prelude To A Leaving" and "Italian Phases" – and strong vocal numbers include "Parisian Plight 1" and "Your Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has light wear & a cutout notch.)

✨✧ Shawn PhillipsRumplestiltskin's Resolve ... LP
A&M, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful bit of funky folksy rock – one that has Shawn Phillips working with members of The Headhunters, including Paul Jackson, Bill Summers, and Mike Clark. The best of the cuts may well be "Hie Away", one that juxtaposes Phillips' artsy folk vocals against some smooth jazz funk by the band. Other tracks start slow and stay slow, or build up into some nice funky riffing that resembles work on other funky Phillips albums. Titles include "Wailing Wall", "Early Morning Hours", "Spitefull", and "Today". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a promo sticker and cutout hole.)
