Forthcoming Ant Phillips' Reissue Will Include Rare B-Side with Rutherford and Collins

The official Anthony Phillips site has confirmed that his forthcoming 2-CD reissue of The Geese and The Ghost will include "Silver Song" featuring both Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins.

The song has never been officially issued on compact disc, so this will clearly be a highlight of this anticipated remaster. At this point, it is still unknown as to whether "Only Your Love" another Collins sung track will also see the light of day on these new Phillips remasters. Stay tuned for more information!
