Run Out Groove has recently announced its latest limited-edition title. The winner of the last fan vote is singer-songwriter Sam Phillips’ Fan Dance, her ninth studio album and first for Nonesuch Records. For its first worldwide release on vinyl, Fan Dance has been freshly remastered. It will be issued on 180-gram vinyl in a deluxe tip-on jacket with a booklet, and the lacquers will be cut at Sam Phillips Recording Studio (the other, Sun Records Sam Phillips, that is). It will be pressed and numbered to a limited amount based on the total number of orders received.
The acclaimed 2001 album was produced by Phillips’ then-husband, T Bone Burnett. It consisted of twelve original compositions, one of which (“Say What You Mean”) was penned with Burnett. Phillips and Burnett enlisted a group of top-flight musicians to bring the songs to life, including guitarist Marc Ribot, pianist Dave Rawlings, vocalist/bassist Gillian Welch, bassist Rick Will, cellist Martin Tillman, and percussionists Carla Azar and Jim Keltner. Van Dyke Parks wrote the string arrangements and also played harpsichord. Around the time of the album’s release, Phillips began writing music for television’s hit series Gilmore Girls, and on the show’s Season 6 finale, she performed the album’s “Taking Pictures.” T Bone Burnett received a Producer of the Year Grammy Award for his work in 2001 including Fan Dance.
