Atlanta-based guitarist Glenn Phillips, whose long musical journey began in the late ‘60s with the Hampton Grease Band while he was still in high school, is having his debut solo album Lost at Sea re-released in a deluxe 40th Anniversary edition via Massachusetts-based indie label Feeding Tube Records. The special release, limited to 500 copies, is housed in a gatefold sleeve with photos and liner notes by Glenn and music writer Phil McMullen, and includes an extra album of previously unreleased material.
“Glenn had always been able to conjure up flash for his solo spots with the Grease Band, but the playing here rose to a whole new level,” notes journalist Byron Coley about Lost at Sea. “The album is one of the best homemade prog LPs of the era. Hints of McLaughlin, Zappa and Duane Allman all manages to coexist in an instrumental jungle that is dense, angular and boss.”
To celebrate the anniversary release, Phillips is reassembling his original band that recorded it, and they’ll be performing the album in its entirety at the Red Clay Music Foundry in downtown Duluth on Saturday, May 30th, along with rarely played songs from his second album, Swim in the Wind.
