Shawn Phillips - Transcedence


















Shawn Phillips - Transcedence - 1978

Shawn Phillips may not be a name that rings bells for the casual music fan, but it is a name that can be tied to some of the greatest moments in music history. Whether it's Donovan’s “Sunshine Superman” or The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” singer/songwriter Shawn Phillips is someone that was there. The Fab Four had Phillips lend his vocals to “Lovely Rita,” and Donovan and Phillips used to sit in a room and write songs together. But this is only the beginning of the Shawn Phillips story.

This is a man that studied sitar with Ravi Shankar and gave George Harrison some basic lessons before the famed Beatle later found Shankar himself. He is also, through his work with Donovan, the first artist to introduce the sitar to popular music. Phillips also gave guitar lessons to Joni Mitchell while she was working as a waitress in Saskatchewan. Mitchell was interested in learning Phillips’ 12-string technique. Some of the musicians that can be found on Phillips’ albums are iconic names like Rick Wakeman, Michael Kamen, Steve Winwood, and Eric Clapton. Other world famous artists that Phillips has had relationships with are Delbert McClinton, The Moody Blues, Bill Cosby, Bob Ezrin, Jerry Moss, ZZ Top, Cass Elliot, Paul Buckmaster, Elton John and Bernie Taupin, Steve Morse, John Denver, Paul Simon, and more.
