Sam Phillips – Holding On To The Earth

(click song title above to listen)

“I have a lot of questions; asking questions is part of any artistic endeavor. But the real challenge is to be brave enough to allow the questions to be unanswerable. It’s that process that inspires me to write”.

Sam Phillips is an artist whose process always inspires us to listen and one who defies any attempts of pigeonholing. It was during the summer of 1988 that Sam would score a Top 30 Modern Rock hit with this week’s tune “Holding On To The Earth”. The song appears on her debut Virgin Records album, The Indescribable Wow . Often described as a modern version of 60s psychedelic rock or acid pop, it was the first time Phillips recorded under her childhood nickname, Sam.

T Bone Burnett‘s production straddles both the past and the present, for all the 1960s nods of the Beach Boys-like “I Can’t Stop Crying” or the Beatlesque “Remorse”, The Indescribable Wow never sounds dated or retro, just timeless”. – Jason Ankeny – Allmusic

Rosanne Cash – If You Change Your Mind

(click song title above to listen)

It was this week back in 1988 when Rosanne Cash scored her ninth #1 on the country chart with “If You Change Your Mind” from her pioneering lp King’s Record Shop.

The tune was co-written with pedal steel guitarist Hank DeVito of Hot Band fame and spent a total fifteen weeks on the chart!

King’s Record Shop would produce four #1 singles in all and is “Rosanne Cash’s classic, a work that transcends production and songwriting styles and the pop and country music of the time”. Thom Jurek, Allmusic Guide.
