GREATEST HITS

Early Recordings  

The Edwards Brothers were passionate about recording. These original songs were produced in San Francisco's finest recording studios.

 

 
  • Coast Recorders

     

    Coast Recorders had two San Francisco locations. This is Studio-A on Mission Street, where many of The Edwards Brothers recordings were made.

  • State of the Art

     

    Phil engineered the band's Coast sessions at this recording console. Studio founder Bill Putnam is seen here at the studio's Folsom Street location.

  • Basement Tapes

     

    Beneath San Francisco's iconic Columbus Tower building was a basement recording studio. The Grateful Dead and many other local recording artist laid down tracks at Columbus Recording—including The Edwards Brothers.

  • 8 Tracks! Wow!

     

    In 1966 the brothers recorded on 8 tracks at Columbus Recording, the first San Francisco studio to acquire a multi-track machine.

  • Phil Edwards Recording

     

    This office space adjacent to Coast Recorders on Mission Street is the former site of Phil's very own recording facility.

"Your Love, Like Music"

 

Drummer-turned-author Bruce Edwards dedicated book #3 in his The Age of Amy series for young adults to The Edwards Brothers. The lyrics from many of the band's recordings are reproduced in the text. This song was written during the "Age of The Edwards Brothers" but never recorded—until now!

 

 
Publishing Contract

 

When the "Chairman of the Board" Calls

 

Frank, Tony, Sammy, and Dean all wanted to record my songs. Yeah, right! Still, that's a tempting prospect to consider when a contract beckons for your signature. This agreement was presented to me by a publishing company owned by Frank Sinatra's manager. Sure, Ol' Blue Eyes might have recorded one of my ballads if I had signed, but even if he didn't, the publisher still gets his 50%!
