Edge Of Dreams

My first album for New World, developed from a 5 minute demo at the 'Enid' studio which at that time was based a few miles from Halesworth in Suffolk.

I had first met the 'Enid' a few years earlier through my involvement with the band 'Minotaur' who regularly supported them on tour. Since that time I had wanted to record in their studio as they were by far the most advanced recording facility for symphonic / electronic music in the country.

The Enid's lead guitarist Stephen Stewart had by that time developed into a brilliant producer, so when New World gave me a budget to record an album for them it was a dream come true.

~ Original sleeve notes by Carmen Willcox ~

Edge of dreams is more than a superb piece of music, it is a distant but deeply remembered part of yourself - a sound that is alive within you.

Misty visions and floating memories are conjured up,only to give way to worlds of indescribable beauty. bright melodies leisurely develop from gentle strings, soothing harps, a haunting oboe and a distant Chinese gong, majestically producing a most unforgettable dreamscape, where you are the artist and the planner of your dreams.

Phil's accomplished composition has great depth and memorable style. It must be one of the most compelling and magical recordings ever - a recording to enhance every moment of your life.
