PHIL CORDELL was an enigma. He was a multi-instrumentalist, singer and producer and was commercially successful in his own way and in his own terms, even though from the outside it might seem like it comes down to a pair of quirky HIT singles.

There was ‘I Will Return’, his 1971 UK Top 5 Hit by SPRINGWATER and ‘Dan The Banjo Man’ by DAN THE BANJO MAN, which only just crept into Top 30 in UK, but was a chart topper (twice) in Germany.

This anthology is compiled by guitarist RAY FENWICK who was a long time friend and brings together the heart of his solo work, from his first single to unreleased later tracks. Phil passed away tragically early 2007, aged 59, but his unique sound lives on, a sound that was very much of the 70’s but which reverberates with the history of rock’n’roll.
