Anthony Phillips was a founder member of the British Rock band Genesis. The band recorded two singles and the album From Genesis To Revelation before leaving Decca and signing with Charisma to record the Trespass album.
Anthony recorded the albums From Genesis To Revelation and Trespass and also performed a great many gigs before deciding to leave the band following a particularly bad bout of stage fright and also suffering a debilitating bout of bronchial pneumonia.
It was between the years 1970 and the release of his debut album The Geese And The Ghost in 1977 that many fans lost sight of Anthony Phillips. In actual fact much of the material that would make up the Geese And The Ghost would be written during this time. The album was originally released in 1977 and features performances from Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins alongside Anthony and opens his account as a solo artist.
Anthony’s second solo album was released in May 1978 housed in a striking sleeve designed by Peter Cross and produced by Rupert Hine. This reissue has been re mastered and contains a second disc of rarities and outtakes recorded before and during the sessions for the album.
Amongst the tracks are various pre release mixes of tracks alongside demos of a number of the tracks including tracks that never made the finished line up.
2008 will see the fortieth anniversary of Genesis and the thirtieth anniversary of the original release of Wise After The Event and as such there will be a heightened interest in the massive Genesis fan base and associated Anthony Phillips fan base.
