Sam Phillips

June 6, 1991

Now a cult figure in the American underground for her witty, literate, and acerbic songwriting, Sam Phillips was still in her ascendancy when she dropped in on SNAP in June 1991.

For one of Deirdre’s final live sessions, Sam brought her charming rapport and a brace of her best songs in this magnetic and endearing session.
