Phil Harding - The Story of Beginners (3 stars)

Phil Harding

(Wb Records)


Over 30 years in the making, prolific pop producer Phil Harding finally marks the release of his debut solo album. From working with the likes of Stock, Aitken & Watercrap during the nauseating 80s, The Story of Beginners has him venturing in a different direction alongside lyricist Mila Bogen and a plethora of top-name session players; with Harding on acoustic guitar and piano. While the ten reflective tracks (highlights include ‘Swimming’, ‘Flawles Band’, and the spiritual ‘9th Dimension’) are pleasant enough, his vocals are a little strained.
