|PHIL COLLINS HELLO, I MUST BE GOING Limited 180gram Vinyl LP
Phil Collins revisits a career that can boast over 100 million sales and numerous worldwide #1 albums. Both Sides will be remastered by Nick Davis, who earned a Grammy nomination for Best Surround Sound album for his work on the Genesis ‘1970-1975’ box set. Davis has also worked on all of the Genesis retrospective reissues.
Entirely curated and compiled by Collins himself, his idea for this release is to examine how his songs have evolved over time, with the majority of the additional content throughout these releases focused on live versions of the tracks. By contrasting the original studio versions of the material with later performances, the series demonstrates how Collins’ songs take on a life of their own once they’re freed from the confines of the studio.
Initially released in 1982, Collins’ second album ‘Hello, I Must Be Going!’ focused on a more organically produced sound than his debut, with lyrics on tracks such as ‘I Don’t Care Anymore’ and ‘Thru These Walls’ providing a darker thematic core. By contrast, the album’s biggest hit was Collins’ upbeat interpretation of The Supremes’ ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ which became his first solo #1 single. ‘Hello, I Must Be Going!’ itself peaked at #2, and Collins would soon earn his first Brit and Grammy Award nominations.
