Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of THE LIVING ROOM CONCERT by original Genesis guitarist and celebrated solo artist and composer ANTHONY PHILLIPS.
Initially 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 schedule of contemporary instrumental music. The show was broadcast on 120 public radio stations in America on June 25th, 1993.
For the performance Anthony selected several acoustic guitar and piano pieces, drawing mainly on tracks initially 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 re-mastered 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.
