Spaced [A&M, 1977]
Spaced seems to be an album of unreleased pieces recorded during 1969-1977. Fans of the Headhunters might wanna track down a copy since it's got this 16 minute funk jam called, "I Don't Want to Leave You, I Just Came to Say Goodbye." On this and one other instrumental, the Clark/Jackson/Summers rhythm section kicks out in full effect. Very sweet although I keep getting this phantom itch for Herbie (Pete Robinson, of Contraband notoriety, plays the surrogate.) The track itself is very Thrust-like. Nice 'n' tacky album jacket too, with Phillips fully decked in silver spacesuit and posing before a Sportscoach RV. [DW]
Shawn was a trip. He played live on my radio show in the 70's in Chicago. Did and interview with him and he recited one of his fairy tales completely from memory. I don't recall the title at this moment but I still have the cassette in my collection.
Great site and thanks for this info. I Have Shawn Phillips - Spaced and wanted to read or learn more about the guy. I had his album way back but just never knew much about him. Would you be interested in joining a new private Jazz site?

Very rare album and hard to find on CD although I'm still searching. Awesome tracks and I have to agree the last one is a 16 minute funky-fusion masterpiece that will forever be etched in your memory.I have it on vinyl but need it on CD - definately worth buying.
