Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce
the release of a new re-mastered and expanded edition of The
Living Room Concert.
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 programme Echoes, a daily programme 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,
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 Conversation Piece, the first
movement of a Guitar Quintet that he had composed in 1976, which had
subsequently been scored with parts for strings and wind
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.
