An Evening with Roy Phillips

Christchurch Town Hall - November 2010
Roy opened the George Benson concert and the Press published a rather nice review.

"The voice of The Peddlers, Roy Phillips, opened with an impressive jazzy keyboard and smoky vocals.

Phillips was an unexpected but welcome treat with versions of Misty, Last Train to Clarksville and his own compositions.

Suite London re-released 31 July 2006
This is one of Roy's favourite albums. The combination of The Peddlers with The London Philharmonic Orchestra is outstanding. Martin Aston writing in The Times gave the album five stars.

"The real find is the Peddlersí Suite London. Itís rare that a band whose fans included Princess Margaret and Eric Sykes is a cause for rediscovery, but then the Peddlers werenít just another band. In the pop-rock world of the 1960s they were MOR squares, but in truth they were singularly suave pop-jazz minimalists who havenít dated a jot, unlike many of their peers."

"The album (plus six like- minded singles tagged on) is an absolute beauty. Gliding between funk, soul and orchestral pop, it showcases a Fender Rhodes piano and Hammond organ as they were meant to be played, all iced by the simultaneously silken and gritty vocal of keyboardist Roy Phillips."

You can buy the album at Amazon.
