Original Genesis Guitarist Anthony Phillips "Slow Dance" Re-Mastered & Expanded 3-Disc Edition Now Available On Esoteric Recordings!

Original Genesis Guitarist Anthony Phillips "Slow Dance" Re-Mastered & Expanded 3-Disc Edition Now Available On Esoteric Recordings!


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mixed and expanded deluxe 3-disc edition of the classic 1990 instrumental album by Genesis founding member and guitarist Anthony Phillips, "Slow Dance." Regarded by aficionados of Anthony's music as one of his finest releases, "Slow Dance" is a two part orchestral rock suite which showcases Anthony's music at his most expansive and imaginative.

This new 3-disc(2 CD / 1 DVD) digipak Deluxe Edition of the album features a newly re-mastered original stereo mix and a 5.1 Surround sound mix by Simon Heyworth (on an NSTC / Region Free DVD), along with a CD of previously unreleased "Slow Dance Vignettes." It includes a lavishly illustrated booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and features a new essay by Jon Dann.

Says Ant, " 'Slow Dance' was an important album to me because it represented the first time that was I able to do a full-scale album after all the miniatures of the, for me, thrifty 80s! I had stockpiled a number of ideas during those years and finally, due to the promise of an advance from my then record company, Passport, I was able to realise these on the big canvas, as it were. Alongside those ideas, I wrote a lot of new material, helped by the new gear, most which feature on Side 2. I was kindly advanced the money by my management Hit & Run and then….Passport went bust….?!!!

"Album all written but not recorded…! What to do …?! Hit & Run were terrific, didn't pressurise me and I was able to complete the album, secure a publishing deal with Virgin - which led to my catalogue being realised on CD - so the gamble paid off…Phew !!! But it was veritably a labour of love. Seven months very hard work. No road map for that album. Did it make sense …? One long continuous piece, broken up into two sides…?

"I really wasn't sure and having finished it, found listening to it unbearable ! Yet years on it has its admirers (one who even says he has not been moved thus by an album since…). So I must have got something right - and in the re-release we have tried to really make the re-purchase worthwhile with the improved sound of the main album, the extras CD and the 5.1. I hope the public agree!"

Anthony Phillips is a composer and guitarist who is known as a prolific writer of music for film and television as well as a recording artist. He was a founding member of the band Genesis alongside Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks with whom he recorded the albums "From Genesis To Revelation" and "Trespass." After leaving the group in 1970, Ant studied orchestration and harmony externally at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. After passing his LGSM exams, he taught music at Reeds School and Peper Harrow whilst continuing to compose and record in his home studio.

Ant released his critically acclaimed debut solo album "The Geese & The Ghost" in 1977 and since then has created a large and diverse output as a recording artist. As well as album releases such as "Wise After The Event," "Sides," "Slow Dance" and "Field Day," he has to date also released eleven albums in the "Private Parts & Pieces" series and four volumes in the "Missing Links" series. Amongst other projects, he collaborated with Harry Williamson on the large-scale instrumental work "Tarka" and he also co-wrote the stage musical "Alice" with Richard Scott.

Whilst Ant continues to release solo albums to critical acclaim, increasingly his music has also been much in-demand for film and television. Commissions have included scores for both dramas and documentaries and he has written and recorded music for over a dozen Survival programmes in collaboration with percussion virtuoso Joji Hirota, including the award-winning "Land of Dragons" and "Creatures of the Magic Water."

Ant has also established himself as one of the most prolific and successful composers of library music, with tracks from his extensive output being regularly featured on commercials, films and television series throughout the world.

2014 saw Ant renewing his association with Cherry Red Records via the Esoteric Recordings label who are re-issuing his back catalogue. "Harvest of the Heart," a five-CD deluxe box set anthology which celebrates Ant's rich musical heritage by featuring recordings made between 1969 and the present day was released in November 2014 to wide-spread acclaim. Subsequent re-releases have included "Private Parts & Pieces I - IV" (a deluxe clamshell box set of the first four albums in that series) and deluxe editions of the albums "Wise After The Event," "Sides" and "1984" all of which feature new stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes.
