Today is 23.12.2021 - Anthony Phillips turns 70 and the German Genesis Fanclub is very pleased to announce the release of a special CD to mark the occasion.
THE ANT BAND - A Light On The Hill
The Ant Band - these are musicians from your midst, in this case from the German Forum / the fan club, some of whom performed at the Anthony Phillips event in 2014. Now, coordinated by Tom Morgenstern, they have recorded an album in honor and for the birthday of Anthony Phillips. If everything works out, the album will be in the mailbox of Anthony himself, today who didn't know about this project until today.
The album features 14 tracks. Not the usual suspects, but many hidden gems.
