Esoteric Recordings ECLEC52510

Release date: 11th September 2015

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a 5CD clamshell boxed set of the first four albums in the Private Parts & Pieces series. 

Alongside album releases such as The Geese & The Ghost, Wise After the Event, Sides, Slow Dance, 1984 and Field Day, Anthony is also known for the successful series of Private Parts & Pieces albums. Beginning in 1978 the first four volumes featured an extensive range of music recorded by Ant for various projects (going as far back as 1972) and came to be regarded by fans as essential collections of his wide and diverse compositional work.

Now, Anthony Phillips and Jonathan Dann have compiled this 5 disc deluxe set, which gathers together the first four Private Parts & Pieces albums (with a total of 18 bonus tracks), along with an additional 18-track CD of previously unreleased material. Private Parts & Pieces I - IV is the definitive statement on these classic albums.

The set includes a lavish booklet with an essay by Jonathan Dann and fully restores the artwork of the original vinyl releases.

This set due for release on 11th September and is available to pre-order here.
