When the Creation broke up in disarray in April 1968, the idea that they would ever reassemble for any professional purpose would have been laughable.
That they had made classic and barrier-smashing records since their formation in May 1966 could not be disputed. Their small catalogue consisted of some of the finest recordings of the era, boasting dazzling lyrical imagery and stunning instrumentation. In the latter category came the guitar work of Eddie Phillips, the first musician to ever play an electric guitar with a violin bow. However, the band's imperishable records only yielded hits in West Germany and - after complicated personnel changes - the group dribbled to a disillusioned close.
Fast forward to 1993. Everybody had come a long way in the interim.
