Hi again DrummerFriends
Simon had a long collaboration with multi-instrumentist and vocalist Mike Oldfield, Mr Phillips has played on four albums, Crises (1983), Discovery (1984), Islands (1987) and Heaven's Open (1991). He was the co-producer alongside Mike Oldfield on Crises and Discovery.
Here's a couple track from Mike Oldfield.
"Taurus 3" from Crises, a kind of latin rock groove with a nice toms pattern, very Phillips-esque.
"Mr Shame" from Heaven's Open, Simon can really lay down a solid groove with tasty hi-hat work, superb.
The third track today comes from Nik Kershaw's album Radio Musicola (1986)
"Violet to Blue", a magificient half time shuffle feel from Simon, on the second half of the track, he agrement the vibe of that song with tasteful fills, really inspiring.
