Shawn Phillips is one of most fascinating and enigmatic musicians to come out of the early '70s singer-songwriter boom.
In addition to recording more than 20 solo albums he has worked with Donovan, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Bernie Taupin, The Beatles and many others. Shawn has been described as "The best kept secret in the music business,” by the late rock impresario Bill Graham.
Infinity was recorded in 1989 using the “Infinity Device.” It was an innovative experiment, but remained unreleased until now. The “Infinity Device,” was a collection of pre MIDI Analog Synthesizers and drum modules modified to allow Shawn to perform alone yet sound like an entire band. Tracks 1-4 and 8
were done live by Shawn with no overdubbing. Tracks 2-3-5 and 7 were performed live by Shawn with additional parts played simultaneously by Elmo Peeler. Each track was recorded in one take. The Entire Album was recorded and mixed in two days at Cherokee Studios. This is the only studio recording of Shawn performing with the Infinity Device.
