Shawn Phillips is one of most fascinating and enigmatic artists to come out of the early '70s singer-songwriter boom. The fact that he was a musician as much as a singer/songwriter made him stand out, and his refusal to shape his music - which crosses between folk-rock, jazz, progressive, pop and classical - to anyone else's expectations has allowed him to hold onto a large and dedicated following. 'Contribution', Phillips' first major album, mixes progressive rock and folk sounds in a manner unique to its time. Recorded with help from members of Traffic (Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Caleb Quayle) among others, this is a condensation of a far more ambitious studio original that was intended to fill three LPs.
