Phil Keaggy Band – Emerging – 1977

This was the only album that used the moniker “Phil Keaggy Band”. The “Band” were guitarist Lynn Nichols, keyboardist Phil Madeira, bassist Dan Cunningham and drummer Terry Andersen. This was truly a “band” effort and not just some musicians joining Phil and rumour has it that the album was recorded almost entirely live in studio. I think this is the first album that we can start to hear the guitar virtuoso that Phil would become. If you have a love of Phil be sure to head back to this album to hear some of where it all started.
