Martinis and Bikinis, Sam Phillips‘ mid-90s Grammy-nominated masterwork, is a key record in the evolution of one of America’s most exceptional and unpredictable songwriters. Initially praised as a record that “revitalized the ‘Beatlesque’ category with substantial songwriting and a woman’s voice, which turns the whole sound upside down,” Martinis was universally hailed as a musical turning point for Phillips and tagged by numerous critics as one of the best albums of the year.
The disc, produced by long-time collaborator T Bone Burnett, spawned two alternative radio and video hits in “I Need Love” and “Baby I Can’t Please You,” and gained Sam a new legion of devoted followers. With an amazing collection of songs and a brilliant cast of musicians, including XTC’s Colin Moulding, R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, Marvin Etzioni and Don Heffington from Lone Justice, Heartbreaker Benmont Tench, Marc Ribot, Mickey Curry and arrangements by Van Dyke Parks…it does not get better than this.

One year ago today, Bob Dylan tipped his hat to Frank Sinatra with his critically acclaimed 36th studio album for Columbia Records, Shadows In The Night. The intimate album was done live in one or two takes and recorded in famed Capitol Studio B, where the Chairman had recorded so much of his classic work. Shadows consists of ballads recorded by Frank in the late 50s and 60s, songs that explored the emotions of heartache and melancholy. The album debuted at #1 on the UK Album charts and at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 and is nominated for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album” at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards to be held Feb 15th 2016.
In Dylan’s memoir, Chronicles: Volume One, Dylan wrote of Sinatra’s Ebb Tide: “When Frank sang that song, I could hear everything in his voice – death, God, and the universe, everything.” Mojo Magazine correctly points out that the same an be said for Dylan’s half-century of work.
“Why Try To Change Me Now” was written by Cy Coleman and Joseph McCarthy and it’s been said that Dylan’s performance is so assured you might think he wrote it himself. Sinatra and Dylan share that trait in spades. While separated by a generation, as well as style, both men are, of course, rooted in the blues.
