    Anthony Phillips THE LIVING ROOM CONCERT Remastered & Expanded

    Genesis Guitar Legend Anthony Phillips THE LIVING ROOM CONCERT Remastered & Expanded Digipak Edition To Be Released July 24, 2020

    • A NEW REMASTERED & EXPANDED EDITION OF THIS ALBUM OF A LIVE RADIO PERFORMANCE
    • WITH THREE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED BONUS TRACKS
    • FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY BY JON DANN

    Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered and expanded edition of THE LIVING ROOM CONCERT by original Genesis guitarist and celebrated solo artist and composer ANTHONY PHILLIPS.

    Originally released in May 1995, the album featured highlights of a live solo performance by Anthony which was recorded on March 21st 1993 as part of the Living Room Concert Series for the US Radio program Echoes, a daily program of contemporary instrumental music. The show was broadcast on 120 public radio stations in America on 25th June 1993.

    For the performance Anthony selected a number of acoustic guitar and piano pieces for the performance, drawing mainly on tracks originally released on the albums The Geese and The Ghost, Private Parts and Pieces and A Catch at The Tables, along with two pieces from New England, the eighth volume in the Private Parts & Pieces series and a solo 12-string version of the first movement of a Guitar Quintet that he had composed in 1976, which had subsequently been scored with parts for strings and wind instruments; “Conversation Piece.”

    Unavailable on CD for many years, THE LIVING ROOM CONCERT has been remastered and expanded to include three previously unreleased tracks recorded for the original broadcast, “Jaunty Roads,” “Let Us Now Make Love” and “Lucy: An Illusion.”

    This Esoteric Recordings edition restores the original artwork and includes new liner notes by Anthony Phillips archivist Jon Dann.

    A great review! Thank you!

    I of course have the original CD and was trying to not spend the ducats on this re-release but your emphasis on the extra tracks and better sound convinced me (well, it also helped that i was after free-shipping for a small item I needed so it was the push I needed to pre-order. the CD...LOL)

    I got mine the other day. It sounds great; I forgot how special these “live” tracks are.

    I need to do a quick “A/B” test with the original CD.
