888 The Creation “Making Time” 1966

“Two British bands of the 1960s could have been described as the Rock equivalent of a pop-art action painting. One, of course, was the Who. The other was often tapped as one of the bands most likely to succeed, but rock operas and stadium tours were not in the cards for the Creation. The group boasted a guitarist who did more than any other British musicians except Pete Townshend and Jeff Beck to pioneer feedback and distortion. It’s even been reported that he declined an invitation to join the Who as a second guitarist.” Said producer Shel Talmy, “Eddie Phillips deserves to be up there as one of the great rock ’n’ roll guitarists of our time, and he’s hardly ever mentioned. Jimmy Page stole the bowing bit of the guitar from Eddie. Eddie was phenomenal” (Richie Unterberger, Unknown Legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll, 1998).
