Editorial Reviews

2008 digitally remastered two CD edition of the second solo album from the former Genesis guitarist including a bonus CD that includes rarities and session outtakes. Wise After The Event was released in May 1978 housed in a striking sleeve designed by Peter Cross and produced by Rupert Hine. This reissue has been remastered and contains a second disc of rarities and outtakes recorded before and during the sessions for the album. Amongst the tracks are various pre-release mixes of tracks alongside demos including cuts that never made the finished release. 2008 will see the fortieth anniversary of Genesis and the thirtieth anniversary of the original release of Wise After The Event and as such there will be a heightened interest in the massive Genesis fan base and associated Anthony Phillips fan base. 23 tracks. Voiceprint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful album May 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have loved this album since it was first released - of course I bought it because I am a Genesis fan. But this is something different - softer, more sensual. This album moves from symphonic prog to pop and I love it all. My favorite? A close call between Wise After the Event and Regrets - what I love most is Anthony playing 12 string guitar - that is always what I like best about his albums. Anyway this is the first time I have owned this on CD and all I can say is that it is as amazing as the original album - terrifically recorded. Truly I think that this is one of the best produced and recorded albums ever. Everything is clear and concise. This includes a second cd that contains tracks that preceded those on the final cd which is interesting in that it shows how albums are created.
This album may rate slightly less than five stars on music alone, but the artwork by Peter Cross easily takes it over the top. If you buy it, you will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars And another "Finally" June 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I got this and "Geese" remasters at the same time. Over powering actually. "Geese" came out wonderful. "Wise After the Event" is absolutely stunning! Always a great album, this issue though is the definitive addition as the whole is heard as a single piece of music.

The production is world class, and of course that's because of Rupert Hine. He's disgustingly talented.

The song "What have you done to my little friends" has always brought tears to my eyes, but this addition is simply stunning.

I am so glad that Anthony sang this album himself. With no disrespect to the former singers on "Geese," Ant's voice folds into the music as was intended.

Superb offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great package, and great music November 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this is by far my favourite A.P. album, and i was delighted that it came with an extra CD of outtakes and demos of the songs, as well as a multiple-page booklet with great color photos and an exerpt that explains the recording process of the album. if i could give this one six stars, i would. any Anthony Phillips fan, from beginning to avid collector, needs, NEEDS to have this one in their collection. absolutely beautifully packaged, in every way. bravo, Anthony!
