New CD is HERE from Jeff Phelps!
Now available on iTunes, Amazon & more!!
The music, which incorporates stellar guitar and bass work from long time friend & musical collaborator Marcel Miner, recaptures much of the style and lyrical turns that have helped maintain the long time, underground, international interest in the original "Magnetic Eyes" LP from the 80's. Houston's Traci Ki provided the wonderful background vocals heard on the tracks.
