5.0 out of 5 stars ArtRock at its best July 3, 2001
By Gerry G
Format:Audio CD
This is a piece of art. Maybe not in the sense of a big Beethoven opus or a great Coltrane recording, but in a sense of a great statement of ArtRock from a unique craftsman. Progressive music has been underrated during the last two dacades, but its artistry and imagination somehow trascends generations and reflects a spiritual and artistic urge to tell stories with musical color and imagination. Many Progressive albums are timeless and the work that made them real mirrors an impecable and focused search for creation. The Geese and the Ghost is Anthony Phillips first album since he departed from Genesis. From the first chords of a "Wind-Tales" you get a hint of how important was Phillips contribution to the sound and concept of Genesis. "Which Way the Wind Blows" is a beautiful ballad with guest vocals from Phil Collins. With Mike Rutherfords presence the album breaths an atmosphere of celestial heights. "Henry: Portraits from Tudor Times/Fanfare" is a masterpiece epic of ArtRock with great woodwind ensembles and visionary landscapes. Also a masterpiece is the cut that gives the album its title, "The Geese and the Ghost", a true flight into ancient worlds of fantasy. All the cuts make this album worth listening. Even more its a jewel for every Rock collection. If you are an enthusiast of groups such as Gryphon, King Crimson, Yes, PFM, Renaissance or any other Progressive relic, you will not regret getting this album. Satisfaction guaranteed.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Geese/Ghost" is an essential Prog masterpiece May 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After departing from Genesis almost seven years earlier in 1970, Anthony Phillips released his first solo record, "The Geese and the Ghost, in 1977, although Phillips wasn't the first member of the band to release a solo album (that honor goes to Steve Hackett, who beat Phillips to the punch, by releasing "Voyage of the Acolyte", in 1975). Upon the initial listening of "TG&TG", it would appear the lengthy "sabbatical" Phillips took would cause his musical skills to suffer from a case of "rustitis", but that's far from the truth. On the contrary, the lengthy absence helped him mature his craft, making "Geese..." perhaps one of the most underrated works in all of progressive rock. In practical hindsight, this is a work rich in progressive undertones, with classical influences dominating most of the selections. One listen to the title suites: "The Geese and the Ghost, Parts 1 & 2", will confirm this fact. Joining Phillips on this breathtaking journey, are Genesis mates Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins, whose vocal performances on "Which Way The Wind Blows?" and on "God If I Saw Her Now" are among the best of his career. Speaking of another above-mentioned (ex)-Genesis member, Steve Hackett, whose brother John makes an important contribution to "TG&TG" on flute. Another breathtaking contribution worthy of mention, is Anthony Phillips' vocal performance on another of the few vocal tracks, that being the melancholic "Collections", including the bonus track that closes the CD, the acoustic-driven "Master of Time (Demo Version)".

Format:Audio CD
This is NOT a rock album, and it's not an album for everyone. This first album (1977) by Anthony Phillips, the original lead guitarist for Genesis, is made up of pastoral, melancholy, and often timeless sounding music. The CD cover matches the mood of the music. A drum kit appears for maybe a minute out of "The Geese and the Ghost-Part ii" and that's it, and there are no real guitar solos. The album is all about texture and mood. Phillips gets good support from former bandmate Michael Rutherford--their dual 12-string playing on the title track is reminiscent of the "Trespass" album. Phil Collins comes along to sing lead vocals on two tracks ("God if I Saw Her Now" is especially lovely), and Steve Hackett's kid brother John plays flute on three cuts. The album's centerpieces are two extended instrumentals: the 15-minute title track and 12-minute "Henry: Portraits from Tudor Times". Both include some memorable themes but also a lot of segments that are mood pieces. Phillips has produced a long series of albums called "Private Parts and Pieces" (I stopped buying at #6) that are strictly mood pieces. This CD is a cut above those, but you shouldn't buy it unless you like quiet, reflective music. This is my second favorite Phillips album after "Wise After the Event"; "Geese" has the advantage of still being in print. This is a 3-1/2 star album.
(1=poor 2=mediocre 3=pretty good 4=very good 5=phenomenal)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Debut For Original Genesis Guitarist June 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
After recording two albums with Genesis, 1969's "From Genesis To Revelation" and 1970's "Trespass," guitarist Anthony Phillips left the band (mostly due to poor health and a self-admitted bout with stage-fright), and he spent the next few years studying music (including his newfound love for classical), and greatly expanding his musical skills. With a little help from his Genesis guitarist mate Mike Rutherford (as well as singer/drummer Phil Collins, whom Phillips had never worked with in the band), Phillips finally returned to recording in 1977 with his debut solo album, "The Geese And The Ghost." Quite simply, this album is a beautiful work of art, a gorgeous tapestry of mostly-instrumental classical and progressive music. You can't really label this album progressive "rock"---there's no actual "rock" music on it---but it's definitely progressive, and it is truly beautiful stuff. "Geese" is definitive proof that Anthony's immediate years after Genesis studying & strengthening his musical gifts were very well spent indeed. Just look at this partial list of instruments that Phillips *alone* brilliantly plays here: Acoustic & electric 12-string and 6-string guitars, classical guitar, synthesisers, mellotron, harmonium, piano, organ, drums, glockenspeil, and bells & chimes. Need I say more? Rutherford also plays a wide variety of instruments on the album, and although Phil Collins doesn't drum on "Geese," he lends his distinctive voice to two very lovely songs, "Which Way The Wind Blows" and "God If I Saw Her Now" (the latter co-sung with Viv McCauliffe). I must also mention the instrumental masterpieces that are "Henry: Portraits From Tudor Times" and the two-part title track, with both pieces being very haunting, dramatic, and unforgettable.

This is an attempt at a mostly instrumental 2 CD "concept album". It lacks however any musical invention and the end result is a bland kind of musak. Read more
