Title: anthony phillips?
Post by: gojikranz on December 07, 2009, 11:17:20 PM
I was wondering if anyone out there listened to Anthony Phillips' music? 
you might know him as the guitarist on genesis' first two albums, but his solo material is just breathtaking.  The geese and the ghost and private parts an pieces vol I in particular would easily make my top 25 albums.  something incredibly timeless and beautiful about his music, when nights get as cold as this one it just feels graet listening to it, i only wish i had a fire and a loved one to hold in front of it.

nice collection.  for some reason the only one i have on cd is goose and the ghost(i wanted the second disc of bonus tracks) but i have every vinyl except wise after the event.

i have heard other recomendations for slowdance, i wish i had put it on my christmas list :P.  maybe an amazon gift card will remedy the problem(i can never find him in regular stores :angry:)

how are the other post slow dance ones any in particular i should get first?

Geese and the Ghost is an overlooked classic of the era. That and his contribution to Genesis alone should assure him legendary status in heart of any true music lover.

I also have 1984 (good) and Sides (passable).

I love side 2 of Sides.  im finally gonna get it on CD with the new 2 disc release coming april.

1984 has a good mood.

good to see someone with more than one post liking ant!

check out private parts and pieces (best version is the new release paired with the also excellent Private Parts and pieces II) if you like geese and the ghost some really great guitar pieces on it.
