Anthony Phillips – 1984 – 2CD Remaster – 2nd June

Ant’s sixth solo album, the keyboard-based ‘1984’ was originally released in 1981. The album has been remastered by Simon Heyworth and is reissued as an expanded 2 CD edition

The extra CD includes new mixes from the original 8-track masters which allow parts of the album to be heard for the first time in their original basic form

Also released for the first time is some of Ant’s original music for the ATV Series ‘Rule Britannia’ which was recorded at the same time as the album

Other extras include the previously unheard keyboard piece ‘Ascension’ (which was rediscovered on the original multi-track tapes during the research for this reissue and has been mixed for the first time) and the 16-minute demo version of ‘Poly Piece’ – a track originally written for inclusion on the album ‘Sides’ and then considered by Ant as a possible track for 1984 in the formative stages of the album

New liner notes feature contributions from recording engineer Chris David, the writer and presenter of Rule Britannia Dr James Bellini and Ant’s own memories of the album

Based on the George Orwell novel ‘1984’ Anthony Phillips is responsible for most of the playing on this album save for some percussion from Morris Pert and also percussion, vocals and keyboards from co producer Richard Scott.

Release date 2nd June 2008.
