LITTLE FEAT: Sailin' Shoes; MOF-CD-778; 821797077866 (BC) 29.98 I/O:1,000 ; 1st WK:100;
2nd WK: 100; 3rd WK: 100
Sales Points
 Little Feat's debut may have been a great album but it sold so poorly, they had to either broaden their
    audience or, in all likelihood, they'd be dropped from Warner. So, Sailin' Shoes is a consciously
    different record from its predecessor - less raw and bluesy, blessed with a varied production and
    catchier songs.
 That still doesn't make it a pop record, since Little Feat, particularly in its first incarnation, was simply
    too idiosyncratic, earthy and strange for that. It is, however, an utterly thrilling, individual blend of
    pop, rock, blues and country, due in no small part to a stellar set of songs from Lowell George.
    If anything, his quirks are all the more apparent here than they were on the debut, since Ted
    Templeman's production lends each song its own character, plus his pen was getting sharper.
 George truly finds his voice on this record, with each of his contributions sparkling with off-kilter
    humor, friendly surreal imagery and humanity, and he demonstrates he can authoritatively write
    anything from full-throttle rock & roll ("Teenage Nervous Breakdown"), sweet ballads ("Trouble," a
    sublimely reworked "Willin'"), skewered folk ("Sailin' Shoes"), paranoid rock ("Cold, Cold, Cold")
    and blues ("A Apolitical Blues") and, yes, even hooky mainstream rock ("Easy to Slip," which should
    have been the hit the band intended it to be).
 That's not to discount the contributions of the other members, particularly Bill Payne and Richie
    Hayward's "Tripe Face Boogie," which is justifiably one of the band's standards, but the thing that truly
    stuns on Sailin' Shoes is George's songwriting and how the band brings it to a full, colorful life.
    Nobody could master the twists and turns within George's songs better than Little Feat, and both the
    songwriter and his band are in prime form here.



FAITH NO MORE: Angel Dust; MOF-CD-787; 821797078764 (BC) 29.98 I/O:1,000 ; 1st WK:100;
2nd WK: 100; 3rd WK: 100
Sales Points
 Warner Bros. figured that lightning could strike twice at a time when oodles of (most horribly bad)
    funk-metal acts were following in Faith No More's and Red Hot Chili Peppers' footsteps.
 In response, the former recorded and released the bizarro masterpiece Angel Dust. Mike Patton's work
    in Mr. Bungle proved just how strange and inspired he could get given the opportunity; now, in his
    more famous act, nothing was ignored. "Land of Sunshine" starts things off in a vein similar to The
    Real Thing, but Patton's vocal role-playing is smarter and more accomplished, with the lyrics trashing
    a smug bastard with pure inspired mockery.
 From there, Angel Dust mixes the meta-metal of earlier days with the expected puree of other
    influences, including a cinematic sense of atmosphere. The album ends with a cover of John Barry's
    "Midnight Cowboy," which suits the mood perfectly, but the stretched-out, tense moments on
    "Caffeine" and the soaring charge of "Everything's Ruined" make for other good examples.
   Even a Kronos Quartet sample crops up on the frazzled sprawl of "Malpractice." Other sampling and
    studio treatments come to the fore throughout, adding quirks like the distorted voices on "Smaller and
    Smaller."
   Patton's voice is stronger and downright smooth at many points throughout, the musicians collectively
    still know their stuff, and the result is twisted entertainment at its finest.

“This is Rock n Roll at its most f***ed -up and malicious” – Kerrang! (UK)
Norway’s Aura Noir was formed in 1993 by Aggressor & Apollyon in pursuit of a dirtier thrashier form of black metal than much
of what was coming out at the time, particularly in their homeland, citing bands such as Slayer, Sodom & Kreator as inspirations.
Their first official release was the Dreams Like Deserts EP on Hot Records in 1994, and from there-on the band has become a cult
act.

Picking up where 2004’s highly-rated THE MERCILESS left off & after a series of successful live dates in support of that album
comes the new release, ‘Hades Rise’, undoubtedly the band’s dirtiest & biggest hammer to the face to date, embracing the spirit
of bands like Venom. Recorded & produced by the band, ‘Hades Rise’ features guest appearances from Danny Coralles
(Autopsy, Abscess) & their former guitarist, Blasphemer (ex-Mayhem).

I/O:700 1ST 50 2ND 50 3RD 50

Recorded at the famous San Franciscan venue of The Family Dog Ballroom in September 1969 when the group was at the peak
of its considerable power and only recently unearthed from the archives, this release is sure to be most welcomed by all fans of
prime West Coast psychedelia from one of its finest exponents.
It features the classic group line-up of Paul Kantner (guitar, vocals), Grace Slick (vocals), Marty Balin (vocals), Jorma (lead
guitar, vocal), Jack Casady (bass) and Spencer Dryden (drums). For the closing 26-minute ‘Jam’ they are joined by the Grateful
Dead’s Jerry Garcia, whose distinctive guitar sound adds a new and unique dimension to the group’s sound. ‘Come Back
Baby’, never recorded by the group in the studio, features a rare lead vocal from Jorma Kaukonen. Old favorites ‘Crown Of
Creation" and “Somebody To Love”, along with five new numbers from their forthcoming studio album ‘Volunteers’ make this a
must-have release for fans, old and new alike.

Taken from the best available audio sources, these superb performances have been meticulously restored for this inaugural
release.

Sales Points
 Never before released in CD in U.S. and with 2 bonus tracks
 A couple of years ago her Christmas record on MC got a great response from consumers and critics
 Steve saw her open for Bill Cosby way back in the ‘70s in Anchorage, AK
 From 1965, Odetta Sings Dylan was one of the first albums entirely devoted to Bob Dylan
    interpretations, and one of the best. In part that's because the concept was still actually fresh then; in
    fact, other than an obscure 1964 album by Linda Mason, it was the very first album of Dylan covers.
 And in part it was because, unlike most of the artists who would take a swing at the concept, Odetta
    was actually a major folk musician, one who had done much to inspire Dylan himself. But most of all,
    it was because the arrangements were excellent, featuring the guitar of Bruce Langhorne (who, of
    course, played on Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home and numerous 1960s folk and folk-rock
    recordings) and, the bass of frequent accompanist Bill Lee.
 Langhorne, the character who inspired "Mr. Tambourine Man," also plays some tambourine,
    particularly on "Baby, I'm in the Mood for You."
 Although this is not a folk-rock album, as a result the arrangements have far more rhythm, swing, and
    imagination than most folk records of the era did.
 The song choices are good, too, not only including familiar tunes like "The Times They Are A-
    Changin'" and "Mr. Tambourine Man," but also some songs that hardly anyone has recorded.
 Indeed, Dylan never did put "Long Ago, Far Away" or "Long Time Gone" on any of his official
    releases, and didn't release three of the other songs ("Baby, I'm in the Mood for You," "Walkin' Down
    the Line," and "Tomorrow Is a Long Time") in the 1960s.
 All of this is not to overlook Odetta's well-nuanced, bluesy vocal interpretations of the material,
    particularly on an extraordinary ten-minute version of "Mr. Tambourine Man."

I/O: 400 1ST 50 2ND 50 3RD 50

 'Big Dave's been the quintessential behind-the-scene bluesman. He's done more to shape the Western Canadian Blues scene than
perhaps any other artist'. Billboard

This is his fifth release. His two previous, highly acclaimed, Stony Plain titles have won Western Canadian Music Awards and
earlier this year Dave won a Maple Blues Award for his lifetime contribution to the blues. Dave's latest includes mostly acoustic
performances of original material plus covers from Muddy Waters (his mentor), Lightnin' Hopkins and Barbecue Bob. He is a
masterful guitarist and top notch harpist, Dave's raw and gravelly vocals bespeak of a life lived to the fullist, and a career spent
performing countless gigs.

STP-CD-1336/772532133623

His role models include Woody Guthrie, Ian Tyson , Stompin' Tom Connors and road dogs like Fred Eaglesmith.

After years on the road, Tim and his band have a definable sound. 'We've got the approach of a folk band but slam a lot harder,
we're a country band with a punk attitude and meaningful songs'. His image laden Canadiana story songs capture the pioneering
spirit of truck drivers, miners, rum runners, trappers, men of the land, vagabonds and as the album title suggests, bush pilot
buckaroos.

I/O: 100; 1st WK: 10; 2nd WK: 10; 3rd WK: 10
Sales Points
     Anthony Phillips' first post-Genesis solo album was an extension of the pseudo-medieval folk
        elements found on Trespass, the last of his Genesis albums.
     Much of this recording sounds like a lost Genesis album, understandable since Phil Collins does a
        lot of the singing, and Michael Rutherford is present on guitar, bass, and keyboards, and also
        shares composer credits with him on major parts of this album — portions of the material here, in
        fact, seems to have been derived from pieces they composed together in Genesis' early days, that
        proved unsuitable for performance on stage.
     Includes the demo, "Master of Time," as a bonus. That song, a fey mix of sci-fi and faux-
        medieval sensibilities, never made the final cut of the album, but it is sung by Phillips solo in a
        passionate manner, and is played — on acoustic and electric guitars, with piano and no classical
        musicians added — with some effort at excitement and vibrancy

I/O: 250 1ST 25 2ND 25 3RD 25

JAZZANOVA’s Sonar Kollektiv and GERD JANSON of Running Back Records team up once again to the greater joy of all
music lovers with 13 tracks from artists and producers, who injected some new blood in the veins of a genre that deserted the
dance floors in the 90s. This sudden eviction from the clubs is partly due to the overexposure of disco music in the late 70s and to
the use of the same music technology – computers, synthesizers, and drum machines – for other styles of music such as Chicago
House and Detroit techno, more en vogue in the late 80s and the 90s. But disco music is a mythic genre that could not be left for
too long! And like a phoenix, it has been reborn from its ashes in the late 90s thanks to audacious DJs and a new breed of disco
music producers, who poured various influences like Funk, House, Boogie and Brazilian music in their works. JAZZANOVA and
GERD JANSON belong to those daring artists, who merge genres and rock the dance floors everywhere they play.

LEE, ALBERT “Speechless / Gagged But Not Bound (2-for-1)”
RAV-CD-276/612657027622
AV/21.98
I/O: 500 1ST 50 2ND 50 3RD 50

Raven presents two essential ALBERT LEE solo albums on the one CD for the first time – Speechless (1987) and Gagged But
Not Bound (1988). The British-born guitarist has been delighting music fanatics with his virtuoso playing and astonishing
technique for over 40 years. Having backed the likes of Joe Cocker, Emmylou Harris, Eric Clapton and the Everly Brothers, his
reputation as a sideman par excellence and in-demand session guitarist is beyond reproach. In recent years he’s toured with his
own band Hogan’s Heroes as well as Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings. Focusing on his lesser-known solo career, these two exquisite
albums display Lee at his finger-pickin’ best on a rousing series of rootsy country-rock and traditional-oriented instrumentals.
Speechless combines self-penned tunes ‘T-Bird to Vegas’, ‘Bullish Boogie’ and ‘Seventeenth Summer’ with covers of Duane
Eddy’s ‘Cannonball’ and the traditional ‘Arkansas Traveller’. It’s a very clean sound featuring Lee on acoustic and electric
guitars, mandolin and piano. Gagged But Not Bound features consummate country / rockabilly covers of Chet Atkins’ ‘Country
Gentleman’, ‘Walkin’ after Midnight’, ‘Tiger Rag’, ‘Forty Miles of Bad Road’ and the traditional tunes ‘Flowers of Edinburgh’
and ‘Midnight Special’. With superb quality audio these dynamic and playful recordings are essential listening for guitar and
country / roots music aficionados alike.
BARE, BOBBY “Bare / Sleeper Wherever I Fall (2-for-1”
RAV-CD-285/612657028520
AV/21.98
I/O: 800 1ST 50 2ND 50 3RD 50

For the first time on CD Raven presents two of the finest country albums of all time by BOBBY BARE – Bare (1978) and
Sleeper Wherever I Fall (1978). This engaging 2-for-1 CD follows hot on the heels of Raven’s reissue of Bare’s landmark
albums for Columbia, Down & Dirty ... Plus (RAV-CD-243) and Drunk & Crazy ... Plus (RAV-CD-267), which were career
defining releases that consolidated his rambunctious yet poetic style. Bare’s Columbia label debut Bare saw the singer joined by
song-writer Shel Silverstein for a series of freewheeling and humorous vignettes such as ‘Yard Full of Rusty Cars’, ‘Greasy Grit
Gravy’, ‘Too Many Nights Alone’ (US Country #29) and ‘Sing for the Song’. These good-natured performances were matched by
Bare’s peerless covers of Donald Schlitz’s ‘The Gambler’ and Larry Wilkerson’s ‘Finger on the Button’. Helping out on backing
vocals were Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Silverstein, with instrumental support from the likes of Ben Keith (pedal steel),
Johnny Gimble (fiddle), Bobby Emmons (piano) and Joe Osborn (bass). Sleeper Wherever I Fall was another stellar release
featuring memorable and distinctive covers of Silbar / Lorber’s ‘Sleep Tight, Good Night Man’ (US Country #11), the Rodney
Crowell gem ‘On a Real Good Night’ and some vintage rock gone country in Gene Clark’s ‘I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better’ and
Jagger / Richard’s ‘The Last Time’. Embellished with two 1983 bonus tracks, this is Bobby Bare at the top of his game.


ATKINS, CHET, WATSON, DOC & TRAVIS, MERLE “The Atkins-Travis Traveling Show / Reflections (2-for-1)”
RAV-CD-286/612657028629
AV/21.98
I/O: 500 1ST 50 2ND 50 3RD 50

Raven presents for the first time on one CD two iconic albums from the guitar master CHET ATKINS – The Atkins-Travis
Traveling Show (1974) and Reflections (1980). A true Country music legend, Atkins made an indelible impression as a session
guitarist and record producer. He helped create the Nashville sound, a style of country music that combined pop with honky tonk.
Having recorded for RCA as a solo artist since 1953, by the mid-1970s Atkins was intent on expanding his range. He teamed up
with two other guitar-playing legends, Merle Travis and Doc Watson, for these engrossing recordings. The Atkins-Travis
Traveling Show is a masterful fusion of country / classical / bluegrass tunes and influences and finds Atkins and Travis paying
tribute to their guitar heroes: Arnold Schulz, Mose Roger, Ike Everly, Mother Maybelle Carter, Les Paul, Django Reinhardt and
Segovia. The album was produced by another famous guitarist, Jerry Reed. Reflections with Doc Watson features the duo
celebrating their Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee roots with a deeply personal selection of rollicking ragtime and bluegrass
tunes and stomping spirituals. Here they pay tribute to more musical heroes such as Lester Flatt, fiddler Charlie Bowman, Alton
and Rabon Delmore and the Midnight Ramblers and once again the red-hot finger picking is a sheer delight to hear. With superb
audio quality this enlightening and top-value 2-for-1 CD is a must for guitar lovers and fans of classic country bluegrass.

Selling Points:
      Former Rainbow keyboardist and Planet P vocalist Tony Carey became a solo star in Germany.
         The California native had some U.S. success in 1984 with Some Tough City. It yielded two Top
         40 hits in “A Fine Fine Day” and “The First Day of Summer”.
      Carey plays virtually every note except for drums, the guitar solos and a couple of saxophone
         breaks. His keyboard work in particular is tasteful, efficient and melodic. Some Tough City is a
         strong effort. It's a loose concept album and the songs are individual stories about the struggle of
         down-and-out people trying — and often failing — to make better lives for themselves in big
         cities like New York and Los Angeles.

 Esoteria , a collection of Attrition's forays into neo-classical and dark ambient soundscapes, finds the
    group working in a much more introspective vein.
 Largely sans vocals, the tracks on Esoteria are built around real strings and chillingly cold synthwork.
     Of especial note is their take on "Silent Night"--imagine Christmas in a haunted Victorian dollhouse
    and you're on the right tact.
 Versatile and unique, Attrition make music for the ages, even if they've gone strangely unrecognized
    for such a varied back catalog.

 “It's always difficult to get enthused in the studio about any album that you know is not really going to
    get heard by very many people. I did my best and there is some pretty decent stuff on board,, but at the
    end of the day will never be considered a classic simply because it wasn't.”
 “If you've bought everything else then you might as well buy this one!!!!”
 “During the recording of the vocals a baby hedgehog came and sat on the studio mat outside the door
    much to Chrissie Hammond's delight. We fed him milk and cat food and he seemed jolly happy as he
    nestled down on a warm bed of cotton wool that we lovingly made for him. We called him "Hedgey"
    In the morning we couldn't wait to see him but he obviously didn't want to see us as he was dead and
    later that morning we buried him with full hedgehog military honors.”

Clayton – author of the acclaimed Free biography ‘Heavy Load.
Andy Fraser was a founder member and bass player of Free. Along with Led Zeppelin and Cream, Free were among the few truly

early in 1972 but this was short-lived, for Fraser quit in July that same year and teamed up with Chris Spedding to form Sharks,
recording two albums for Island Records. Sharks folded and after a brief period with Frankie Miller and Henry McCullough,
Fraser created the Andy Fraser Band with Nick Judd (keyboards) and Kim Turner (drums), recording these two superb albums in
1975.

First released in 1979 by Criminal Records in the UK, ‘A Glint At The Kindling’ was the final album by The Merry Band which
consisted of Robin Williamson, Sylvia Woods, Chris Caswell and Jerry McMillan. This album shows Robin’s muse reaching new
heights, and contains many of his best compositions post-Incredible String Band. The album revolves around Robin’s epic poem
‘Five Denials On Merlin’s Grave’ – a piece based on five broad stages of ancient British history. Other highlights are ‘Me & The
Mad Girl’, ‘Lough Foyle’, The Poacher’s Song’ and ‘The Road The Gypsies Go’– some of which Robin still performs to this day.
As a bonus, ‘Five Bardic Mysteries’ has been added. Originally released by Robin on his own label in 1985 as a cassette, these
spoken-word pieces demonstrate Robin’s remarkable storytelling abilities. In fact, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant used ‘The
Dialogue Of The Two Sages’ as part of their ‘No Quarter’ Show in the mid-nineties.

guitarists – Dave Hlubek, Steve Holland, and Duane Roland – plus vocalist Danny Joe Brown, bassist Banner Thomas, and
drummer Bruce Crump. The group recorded a self-titled debut album in 1978, which quickly
went platinum; the follow-up, ‘Flirtin’ With Disaster’, was even more successful, selling over two million copies. For this album
Danny Joe Brown was replaced by Jimmy Farrar on vocals. Originally released in 1981 on Epic, the band blazed across the face
of rock’n’roll with another Southern/hard rock set, even paying homage to 1950s rock & roll, with a cover of ‘Long Tall Sally’.
The album made it straight into the Billboard charts.

SOULPHICTION “Do You Overstand?!”
SKV-CD-180/821730018024
AR/17.978
I/O: 300 1ST 50 2ND 30 3RD 30

Following on from his 2006 album “State Of Euphoria” SOULPHICTION (aka JACKMATE, and part of MANMADE SCIENCE
aka Stuttgart man MICHEL BAUMANN) brings us a fresh new album on Sonar Kollektiv. SOULPHICTION was represented on
the recent Sonar Kollektiv anniversary compilation Ten Years Who Cares (SKV-CD-150) and this album continues his friendship
with the Berlin label. The album opens with the luscious voice of SUZANA ROZKOSNY, on “Chevy Estate”. “Ghana Wadada”
is a dark dance-floor romp complete with haunting flute melodies and ethnic vocals. This is a nice lounge tune ideal for building
up at the start of a set. SOULPHICTION tells a story with his music, but it’s believable enough to carry the listener along, at least
for a while and he moves in many musical directions at the same time so while “Cargo” is a pure swinging jazz number with a
lovely shuffle beat, he still manages to complete the track with spaced-out synth sounds giving it an other-worldly feel. His sound
is always changing and shifting. You never quite know what you're gonna get with SOULPHICTION. - the penultimate track “I
Just Wait”, is freaked out hip-hop.

NEW SOLO ALBUM FROM JAPAN AND PORCUPINE TREE KEYBOARD LEGEND

Richard Barbieri ‘s amazing musical career has spanned four decades, taking him from the seminal recordings he made with
Japan in the seventies right through to the current worldwide success he is enjoying with Porcupine Tree.
Stranger Inside is his second solo album and could be described as ranging from ‘intense dynamic’ to ‘other-worldly ambient’.
Barbieri wrote and produced the album himself but is assisted by a host of familiar faces from throughout his career. Steve Jansen
(Japan, Nine Horses) mixed and co arranged the album, it was mastered by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and features guest
musician appearances from Gavin Harrison (PT) and the legendary double bass player Danny Thompson, whose incredible CV
includes Pentangle, Nick Drake, T Rex , Kate Bush, John Martyn and many, many more. In addition to this nearly all tracks,
though instrumental in nature, feature the sampled voices of Tim Bowness (No Man) and Suzanne Barbieri. These samples
contain no lyrics as such but are used to create beautiful vocal textures and melodies.
To complete the package the artwork and design has been created by Carl Glover and Luigi Colasanti (both longtime PT
collaborators)

Talk Talk, Sigur Ros, Red House Painters and the 1970s heyday of uber-conceptualists Pink Floyd and

Selling Points:
 Actress, author, poetess, and rock star, Cherry Vanilla arguably ranks high among the most influential
     figures on the Anglo-American rock scene. As a cast member of Andy Warhol's taboo-shattering Pork
     stage show, she figured in the formulation of David Bowie's flamboyant breakthrough during 1971-
     1972. As a lasciviously uninhibited rocker at Max's Kansas City, her performances had an
     unquestionable impact upon waitress Debbie Harry. And as author of the libidinous art book Pop Tarts,
     she published the blueprint for Madonna's later Sex. Add to that her time spent fronting a then little-
     known band called the Police and two albums at the end of the 1970s which are still regarded in
     hushed tones of reverence and Vanilla's role in recent rock history isn't simply secured, it is sacred.

34 CLASSIC SUN RECORDINGS ON ONE CD

The Oscar winning biopic, Walk The Line, and the continued success of the recordings he made with Rick Rubin for American
Records, means that Johnny Cash’s iconic status remains as strong as ever despite his death in 2003.
It was at Sam Phillip’s legendary Sun Records however that Johnny Cash came to prominence, pioneering a style of country that
was all his own and in the fullness of time turned him into one of the giants of the country music scene.
Here presented together on a single CD for the first time are two of the seven Johnny Cash albums released by the original Sun
label, his sixth album, All Aboard The Blue Train from 1962, and his last Sun album, Original Sun Sound, released in 1964.
This unique reissue includes the hard-to-find overdubbed versions of several songs which were made and used for the original
album releases, including ‘I Walk The Line’, ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ and ‘Give My Love To Rose’.
The album also features ten bonus tracks taken from ‘Johnny Cash Sings Hank Williams’, effectively making this three albums on
one CD reissue.
The 34 featured tracks provide an excellent overview of Johnny Cash’s Sun era. As well as including many
of his hits, including ‘Big River’, ‘I Love You Because ‘Oh, Lonesome Me’ and ‘Mean Eyed Cat’, they
feature several of his lesser-known gems.

ORIGINAL SUN ALBUM PLUS 19 BONUS TRACKS

Carl Perkins changed the face of popular music when he recorded Blue Suede Shoes at the close of 1955. As well as being a
highly-successful songwriter - Perkins also wrote hits for the likes of Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and The Judds - he was also a
phenomenal guitarist whose playing style came to epitomise rock & roll and inspired George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Dave
Edmunds and many other aspiring guitarists.
Like label mate Johnny Cash, Perkins quit Sun for Columbia and recorded subsequently for several other labels. Like Cash, the
sides he cut for Sun Records between 1954 and 1957 are regarded by many as being his finest.

Dance Album Of was Carl Perkins’ only album on the original Sun label, released in 1958. The nineteen bonus tracks included
in this reissue feature the other highlights from Perkins’ Sun output.
As well as both sides of all his Sun singles (tracks 13 to 21) they include songs which were surprisingly overlooked at the time
and remained unreleased for several years. These are nowadays rightly regarded as being some of the finest Rockabilly sides to
ever come out of the Sun Studio. This digipak edition faithfully reproduces this seminal album’s striking artwork and the
updated sleeve notes make this reissue the definitive collection of Perkins’ Sun years,

Sales Points
 Whereas Anthony Phillips' debut album The Geese & the Ghost was recorded piecemeal over a period
    of years, his sophomore set was cut in comparatively record time, a month in fall 1977, just as the first
    rave reviews for its predecessor hit the stands.
 It was an invigorating period and Phillips' confidence oozes out of every groove.
 Without departing from the proto-formula that established Geese among the year's most unexpected
    treats.
   But the opening "We're All as We Lie" and the multi-textured title track are both career-enhancing
    classics, placing Phillips in the same kind of folky-art-prog middle ground as Roy Harper traditionally
    inhabited. And, as such, Wise After the Event emerges both wise and eventful.
