Sam Phillips – Lying

(click song title above to listen)

It was this week back in 2011 when Sam Phillips gifted us with a collection of songs from her stunning year-long subscription series The Long Play. Capping off a particularly fertile period of creativity to her fans, Solid State highlighted 13 of 42 songs she released over the course of five EPs and a full-length album.

This week’s tune is one of our faves of the collection, a stripped down version of “Lying” Sam originally recorded for her 1991 album, Cruel Inventions (and featured Elvis Costello on guitar!).

On Solid State “Phillips makes every word count…doling out images with precision. She sings about compromises, frailty, coping mechanisms, and tiny flaws that define a life. Phillips sounds like she’s rejuvenated – and never better.” – Greg Kot – Chicago Tribune.

Solid State: Songs from the Long Play – a “best of” from the Long Play sessions is currently available at

Sam Phillips – I Need Love

(click song title above to listen)

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.
