To Be Decided
One of the top selling artists on A&M records, Shawn Phillips has a huge worldwide following. He helped Joni Mitchell learn guitar and gave George Harrison sitar lessons. He sang on the Beatles’ “Lovely Rita (Meter Maid)” from their “Sgt. Pepper’s” album. He hung out with the Greenwich Village crowd in the heyday of Hardin, Havens, van Ronk and Dylan; and shared living space in London with Donovan and Paul Simon. He performed at Britain’s pivotal Isle of Wight concert. He was initially cast to play the lead in the original “Jesus Christ Superstar,” though he ended up not doing the role. The late rock promoter Bill Graham called him “the best-kept secret in the music business.”
