Anthony Phillips

The Geese And The Ghost (2cd and 1 dvd in box pre-order)

Anthony Phillips's delightful solo debut album from 1977. A pastoral and reflective work, the album gained instant cult status with its beautifully crafted combination of folk, singer-songwriter and classical influences. With its similarities to Trespass and stand-out performances from Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins, the album provided a fascinating glimpse into a mid-1970s Genesis that never was.

This 2015 Esoteric label re-issue of the album is an expanded 2 CD/1 DVD version. Re-mastered from the original master tapes by Simon Heyworth, it includes a 5.1. surround mix of the album by Andy Myles and Simon Heyworth, along with a CD of demos and early versions of the tracks. The bonus tracks are completed with the addition of both sides of an aborted single from 1973, Silver Song and Only Your Love (both tracks feature Phil Collins on vocals). Presented in a clamshell box which includes a lavishly illustrated booklet with an essay and a poster.

Pre-order for 9th March release.
