A Good Week for Sam Phillips

Sam Phillips’ Long Play experiment was one of the most rewarding experiences of 2010 for me.

Phillips provided so much creative, inspiring music that I hardly had time to learn the lyrics of one album before another one arrived.

The music she recorded in 2010 is still surprising and charming listeners, and this week made that clear…

She’s featured on a new Fresh Air program, which you can listen to here.

And her collection of selected Long Play songs, an album called Solid State, is also featured in David Wild’s list of “Five New Albums Well Worth Raising Your Personal Debt Ceiling For.”
