Today, Sam Phillips delves into five of her songs, with discussions of the videos.

Homemade, this is “Magic For Everybody”. The star of this video is the little reel-to-reel tape recorder I am listening to at the end. Tape sounds so much better than digital. I recently listened to the mono vinyl version of Bob Dylan’s early records and compared them to the digital versions and was shocked at how bad the digital versions sounded compared to vinyl. I had not done this test in a very long time. Even though I know digital is not great, I was shocked at how degraded recordings have become. So now I have pulled out my turntable and am only buying vinyl. It’s expensive and cumbersome to release music this way, but I am determined to find a way to release my next album on vinyl. It is amazing how entertaining playing records can be… let’s have a vinyl party!
