Over the weekend I listened to two of my favorite records for the first time in many months. The albums in question are Shawn Phillips‘ phenomenal Contribution and Second Contribution . Phillips is an incredibly skilled songwriter and musician who never quite got his due. If you’ve never heard him, I’d recommend Second Contribution as the starting point. It’s a brilliant mix of many musical styles and features some fantastic lyrics.

In 2006, I had the opportunity to chat with Phillips about making those two albums and an unreleased album that would have completed the Contribution trilogy. You can read it here .
