Wind - Tales - Anthony Phillips - The Geese & The Ghost (Cassette) advance to the summerwhen Mike Rutherford was on another break from activity with Genesis after they completed their touring for Selling England by the Pound. The Wind - Tales - Anthony Phillips - The Geese & The Ghost (Cassette) was interrupted when Rutherford was called back on duty as Genesis were embarking on their ambitious project The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, but divine intervention cast its spell with an unexpected accident.
Steve Hackett, gifted lead guitarist for Genesis, crashed a wine glass on his hand, thus rendering it useless and delaying their tour for that album. Which Way the Wind Blows was the first piece we kicked off with. That was on electric guitar but played to sound like classical guitar. Another Steve Hackett connection to the album was injury-free, with the inclusion of his brother John in the recording sessions. It looked like an old farm house, with low ceilings, quite a sprawling affair, with a large studio at the back.
There were a couple of reel-to-reel 4-track recorders which were very impressive for a home studio at the time. Ant immediately put me at my ease introducing me to his brother Rob, who was a talented oboist. The arrangements we played involved a good deal of interplay and Wind - Tales - Anthony Phillips - The Geese & The Ghost (Cassette) unison work between flute and oboe and I seem to remember Ant coming up with the word Floboe for this delightful combination.

His producing career started with a bang when one of the first recording artists to use that studio was none other than a year old Mike Oldfield, putting together the bits and pieces that would become the mega successful Tubular Bells.
On this barge the remaining parts of the album were recorded, including the recorders for Henry: Portraits from Tudor Times, violins for The Geese and The Ghost, cor anglais for both these tracks, and Phil Collins adding his vocals. Phillips recalled a funny story involving timpani drums that did not fit into the barge and had to be recorded remotely on a larger neighboring barge.
Recording was interrupted sometimes by other barges ramming into the floating studio. The sound engineer for the aforementioned Tubular Bells, Simon Heyworth, joined the sessions and became such a vital part of the process that he ended up with co-producer credits on The Geese and the Ghost. I kept my favorite pieces of music from this album to last.
The first is a lovely duet between two singers who did not meet each other, as their tracks were recorded at separate times. McAuliffe, who sadly passed away at the young age of 50, Wind - Tales - Anthony Phillips - The Geese & The Ghost (Cassette) part of the unique ensemble Principal Edwards Magic Theatre, a curious and short lived episode in the lively history of British folk of the late s and early s.
