5 stars What an amazing release!!! On Field Day, Phillips delivers a "sampler platter" of his finest offerings. If you've been to very fine and expensive restaurants, you know that sometimes the chef will send out a tasty treat "on the house" and with his compliments. Well, Mr. Phillips sends out 61 such treats - with his compliments. You might think that so many songs would sound disjointed and patchy. But, through his song selection, he creates a seamless body of work, spread out over two hours of play-time. Besides, the first and last song are variations on a theme, making them perfect bookends. I think both of those tracks include some synth's that are not credited on the sleeve. What you wont find is any flashy, "play it real fast just to impress" pickin' going on here. What you will find is, in some cases, impossible-to-figure-out-the-tuning tuning, nimble fingers, and sweet, melodic songs, played on 6, 10 & 12-string acustic guitars, Parlour guitar, cittern, bazouki, and charanga. This album is meant to be savored. Enjoy the fare from one of the finest chefs in the business. 5 stars from Zagat's
