|PHIL COLLINS TESTIFY Limited 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set
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.
2002’s ‘Testify’ remains his most recent album of original material. Perhaps his most low-key and reflective work as demonstrated with ‘This Love This Heart’ and ‘You Touch My Heart, ‘Testify’ nonetheless moves confidently into other territory with the escalating beats and rhythms of ‘Driving Me Crazy’ and the gospel-tinged title track. The album’s lead single, an interpretation of Leo Sayer’s ‘I Can’t Stop Loving You’ demonstrated Collins’ continuing ability to create hits, as it topped Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart.
