Anthony Phillips Deluxe Reissue Wise After The Event

Deluxe 4 disc clamshell boxed set scheduled for February 5th, 2016

Esoteric Recordings/Cherry Red  have announced ‘Wise After The Event’ is to be the second deluxe reissue from original Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips. Originally released in 1978, this new set will feature 3 cds and 1 dvd.

This deluxe edition features a new stereo mix of the album, a newly re-mastered version of the 1978 stereo mix, a CD of demos, out-takes and extras, and a DVD of a  5.1 Surround Sound Mix of the album. The booklet contains a new essay by Jonathan Dann, including interviews with Anthony Phillips and the album’s producer Rupert Hine. The package also contains Peter Cross’ intricate artwork.

‘Wise After The Event’ was Ant’s second solo album after the beautifully pastoral ‘The Geese And The Ghost’ in 1977, and delivers a strong set of accessible songs with progressive overtones. Guest players on the album include King Crimson alumni Michael Giles and Mel Collins.

I’m assuming the packaging will mirror that of 2015’s impressive reissue of ‘The Geese And The Ghost’. It’s great to see Ant’s back catalogue receiving the deluxe treatment, this release coming on the back of the 5 cd anthology ‘Harvest Of The Heart’, and the 5cd ‘Private Parts & Pieces I – IV’.

Preorder now from Burning Shed.
