Sam Phillips - "Baby I Can't Please You" (video)

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

This video is loaded with talent, and I am not talking about myself. Ethan Johns, who later became the record producer for Ray Lamontagne and Kings of Leon, is playing guitar behind me. Ethan is a very good drummer who played guitar for me in 1994 before starting his career as a producer. Josh LaBelle, one of my favorite drummers (and human beings), is now the executive director and vice chair of the Seattle Theater Group, who run the historic Paramount and Moore theaters. The director of this video is Carlos Grasso. Carlos has recently formed a “movie band” called Dumfuxx, which is currently making a feature film and will perform live around the world, playing music while live mixing film and audio. I am merely the chick singer here, and hope to accomplish a fraction of what these talented gentlemen have accomplished.
