On July 24, a new remastered and expanded edition of Anthony Phillips' The Living Room Concert is released.
Originally released in May 1995, the album featured the highlights of a live solo performance by Anthony, recorded on March 21, 1993 as part of the Living Room Concert Series for the US radio program Echoes, a contemporary instrumental music newspaper.
Pre-order it here:
The show was broadcast on 120 public radio stations in America on June 25, 1993.
For the execution Anthony has selected a series of pieces for acoustic guitar and piano, drawing mainly on songs originally released on the albums The Geese and The Ghost, Private Parts and Pieces and A Catch at The Tables, together with two New England pieces, the eighth volume of the Private Parts & Pieces series and a solo version at 12 strings of the first movement of a Guitar Quintet he composed in 1976, which had subsequently been recorded with parts for strings and wind instruments, Conversation Piece.
Not available on CD for many years, The Living Room Concert has been remastered and expanded to include three unpublished tracks recorded for the original broadcast, Jaunty Roads, Let Us Now Make Love and Lucy: An Illusion.
This edition of Esoteric Recordings restores the original artwork and includes new cover notes by Anthony Phillips archivist Jon Dann.
