about

JAMES PHILLIPS “Soul Ou” (1994)

Originally recorded as a demo, this session turned out to be the definitive example of the essential James Phillips: single instrument and voice, intimate and emotional. Recorded in a two hour session in 1991, it was only released soon after his death some five years later. The songs span a large chunk of his writing career, from his time as a student in Grahamstown in 1983, to new compositions that would end up on “Sunny Skies”, release in 1994.
