Not Dead Yet: The Memoir

Review For better or worse, Phil Collins's "In the Air Tonight" was the "Stairway to Heaven" of the '80s, winning radio stations' listener polls and even lending its designer threat to an episode of Miami Vice. Hits recalls the days when the Collins name on a disc ensured its immediate embrace by programmers and the public. How you feel about these songs will depend on how you felt about them then; despite the undeniable niceness of "Take Me Home" and "One More Night," they're unlikely to win over anyone who didn't adore them to begin with. Those who cared, though, will no doubt be gladdened to find most of Collins's biggest tunes together on one disc. --Rickey Wright

Phil Collins - Serious Hits Live

Review 180-gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl format which features the remastered album as a standalone product.
The Very Best of... Sting & the Police

Review 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 Grammy and Brit Award nominations.

Hello, I Must Be Going! and Dance Into The Light will be available as 2-CD and digital versions which feature the remastered album and the additional content, as well as the 180-gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl format which features the remastered album as a standalone product.

Hello, I Must Be Going (Deluxe Edition) (2CD)

Review "I decided to call this version of 'Going Back' 'The Essential Going Back,'" Phil explained. "In retrospect, I included too much music on the original version, and I believe that too much is not always a good thing. Hence this trimmed down selection of my favourite Motown songs."

Originally released in 2010, "Going Back" was Phil Collins' first studio album since 2002 and saw him back at #1 on the charts. This album was a personal labour of love project that found him faithfully recreating the soul gems that played such an influential role in his musical life.

This is one of the last releases in Collins' "Take A Look At Me Now" series. Entirely curated and compiled by Collins himself, his idea for the concept is to examine how his songs have evolved over time, with the majority of the additional content throughout the series 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.

Each album in the series has been remastered by Grammy-nominated Nick Davis. Each album features a bold artwork concept in which Collins has recreated his poses from the original album covers with new photography that was shot in the present day.

This will be released as a 2CD set, with the first disc being the original album remastered and the second disc compiling an array of demos, live recordings and S-sides from its parent album.
The Very Best Of Daryl Hall & John Oates

Review Originally released in December 1989, "...But Seriously" features many of Phil Collins' biggest hits and was one of the era's biggest selling albums. In the UK, it spent a total of 15 weeks at #1 during an extended run of almost a year in the Top 10 en route to becoming the biggest selling album of 1990. The album campaign culminated with his fourth and fifth BRIT Awards for British Single ( Another Day in Paradise ) and British Male. Internationally, the album scored #1 chart positions all over the globe including a four-week spell atop the Billboard 200.
