Philip Boulding – Harp – Vinyl Album
Flying Fish Records 1988 FF527
This is the new release and the first “solo effort” from one-half of The Magical Strings duo. He is the harpist in the group, and on Harp he explores the various motifs of the celtic harp, which in this case were designed and hand-crafted by Boulding. This is far from a solo effort, however, as contributions from Billy Oskay of Nightnoise are everywhere evident, as producer, engineer and sideman on three cuts. Slight percussion and fretless bass also appear. The beautiful flow and rich sound are two very appealing elements of this work.
