Sides is probably Mr. Phillips' most straight forward rock album. That doesn't prevent if from being a bit of a classic. As part of the ongoing series of Anthony Phillips remasters (which have been very nice thus far) comes an expanded 2 disc version complete with new mixes and previously unavailable singles. If you pre-order from Camino Record's website, you'll get a signed copy from the orignal Genesis guitarist himself. Sounds like a good deal if you ask me.
"Expanded 2 CD remastered reissue - retailing at the price of a single album! Sides has been remastered from the original master tapes by Simon Heyworth and includes the extra non-album track ‘Souvenir’ on CD1. CD2 has variations and alternate mixes including unique new mixes made from the original multitrack masters especially for this release. The edited single version of ‘Um & Aargh’ (previously unavailable on CD) is also added. Originally released in April 1979 'Sides' was Anthony Phillips' rich and innovative response to 70's New Wave written to keep him nearer to the commercial end of the market. It’s possibly his most rock-oriented album"
