Anthony Phillips - Guitars
Dale Newman - Guitar Tsar

“Diamond Meadows” is a way-back machine to the early Genesis 12-string guitar sound. ...
And there are more echoes of the past, both musical and historical. “Caprice in Three,” “Castle Ruins,” and “Mermaids and Wine Maidens” could well be part of Henry: Portraits from Tudor Times. For those of us who have loved Anthony Phillips’ sound since Genesis to Revelation, this is sonic euphoria. ... The rest of Disc 1 follows a similar course. And in the hope of brevity, let’s just say the songs fulfill the lyric from Trespass that said, “Visions of angels all around dance in the sky.” But because I’m one of those old prog guys (and brevity is not in my nature), let’s just (also) say the songs “Restless Heart” and “Still Rain” catch the flavor of rainy nights and quiet candles. And “Skies Crying” evokes the best of early Genesis’ almost-religious purity.
