1981


The first months of the new year are dedicated to Anthony Phillips' upcoming performance of Alice. Together with John Owen Edwards and Kevin Fitzsimmons, the final music pieces are being arranged. The following songs with music by Ant and lyrics by Richard Scott will be used: The Allocation, Twogether, Out Of Order, Come Back, Cat Reactions, Attraction, Come The Night, The Magician, Love That Makes The World Go Round, Home Brew, Duck And Dive, Love Sparks, Walls And Bridges, Last Refuge, Quadrille, Holding Him Again and Guilty. The musical will finally be performed at the Playhouse in Leeds from 22 March to 14 April.

During the Alice phase, Ant also enters into a songwriting partnership with singer/songwriter Roy Hill. Together they wrote about twelve songs, one of which, Tears On The Ballroom Floor, was recorded by the successful British band Bucks Fizz for their upcoming album I Hear Talk. In addition to the album version (4:04), the version The Original Idea (4:13) and the Long Version (4:38) were released in later years. Roy Hill himself will also record the song with his project Cry No More in 1986 in his own version (?:??) for the self-produced Smile album, and a little later again for the self-titled album Cry No More and the single of the song (4:39), of which a 12" remix (7:12) and a live version from 6 April 1986 (6:27) will also be released. Another song called Distant Heart was initially planned for The Who frontman Roger Daltrey's forthcoming solo album, but was never recorded.

There is also a renewed collaboration with Andy Latimer of Camel. Ant and he would like to get a foot in the door of film music and are commissioned by a publisher to contribute the music to the film The Terminator by director James Cameron. Without knowing anything more, the two write lots of material, and the publisher is enthusiastic about the recordings they send in. When the two finally get more information about the film, their scepticism grows. And finally they learn from the publisher that the filmmaker has chosen another composer.

Before Ant concentrates on a new album, he is working on two commissions - music for a National Panasonic corporate video called The Electric Miracle and music for the Limehouse production C.Q., to be broadcast on Channel 4 on 11 October 1984.

After Ants Twelve only contained pieces on 12-string guitar, he limits himself to piano pieces on the sixth Private Parts & Pieces album Ivory Moon, recorded in August, and also draws on older material dating back to 1971.

With songwriter and producer Julia Downes, Ant also writes the song Battle Of Love, which is eventually released in the Spanish version El Ăšltimo Tren (4:00) by singer Mania on her self-titled album 1986.

This summer he is recording music for the third time for a Limehouse production, entitled God's Chosen Car Park, which will be broadcast on Channel 4 on 1 December.

1986 also saw the start of recordings for another Private Parts & Pieces album, which was initially conceived as a pure work based on keyboards and synthesizers. Ant also used material that he had already recorded in 1983.

1981


In the first months of the new year, Ant worked intensively on potential keyboard tracks for the upcoming album, breaking away from the original concept of a pure synth album and still wanting to include the two guitar pieces with Enrique from last year, as well as recording additional guitar numbers of his own. Private Parts And Pieces VII: Slow Waves, Soft Stars thus contains recordings from March '83 to March '87.

In autumn and winter, thanks to an interested label, Anthony Phillips and Harry Williamson can finally complete their joint work Tarka after many years, which had been on ice since the 70s due to a lack of funds. Parts of it are also used for Atmosphere's library projects and thus bring in additional income.

After finishing work on Tarka, Ant's Englewood studio was upgraded in the spring with the purchase of a Fostex 16-track recorder and became "Vic's Place". From the Englewood days, it is only Unheard Cry from 1987 that comes to new honours in subsequent years.
