Wise After The Event

Deluxe 4 disc (3 CD / 1 DVD) edition

Esoteric Recordings ECLEC 42527

Release date: 5th February 2016

The re-release of Ant's back catalogue by Esoteric Recordings continues with a deluxe 4 disc clamshell boxed set edition of the classic 1978 album Wise After the Event.

Produced by Rupert Hine, Wise After The Event was Anthony's second solo album and is a superb blend of instrumental music and songs. The record saw Anthony supported by an able cast of musicians that included Michael Giles & Mel Collins (King Crimson) and John G. Perry (Caravan, Quantum Jump). Featuring such wonderful compositions as "We're All As We Lie", "Now What (Are They Doing to My Little Friends)", "Moonshooter", "Paperchase" and the album's title track, Wise After the Event is a genuine classic of the Progressive era.

This deluxe edition features a new stereo mix of the album, a newly re-mastered version of the original album stereo mix and a CD of demos, out-takes and extras. The set also includes a DVD (NTSC - Region Free) with a new 5.1 Surround Sound Mix of the record and a 96 khz / 24-bit stereo mix of the album together with a lavishly illustrated booklet with a new essay by Jon Dann featuring interviews with Anthony Phillips, John G. Perry and the album's producer Rupert Hine.

Wise After the Event
is released on 5th February 2016 and is the latest in Esoteric Recordings on-going series of official Anthony Phillips reissues.
