Product Description

This Top 10 album from '82 kicks off with Phil's unforgettable, drum-propelled hit I Don't Care Anymore . After that, you'll hear his hit I Cannot Believe It's True ; his nostalgic Top 10 cover of You Can't Hurry Love , and more!


If you are considering divorcing a rock star, let Hello, I Must Be Going! serve as fair warning of what you're likely to face once the papers have been signed and the settlements made. Collins got the last word on sundering his relationship with first wife Jill (he actually addresses her by name on the album!), and managed to deliver it to millions of homes via this album, which contains one blistering diatribe after another: "I Don't Care Anymore," "I Cannot Believe It's True," "Do You Know, Do You Care?," and "It Don't Matter to Me." The mood is tempered a bit by a lively remake of the Supremes' "You Can't Hurry Love" and "Like China," a sprightly rocker celebrating new love. Yet as listenable and engaging as it is, Hello, I Must Be Going! has to be regarded as one of the angriest albums in mainstream rock history. Great stuff, when you're in the mood for that sort of thing. --Daniel Durchholz

Customer Reviews

Now in 2011, a limited edition remastered CD version is released superbly done by Steve Hoffman.
Terrence J. Reardon
Although no horns, the mix of keyboards and drums once again makes this a very fun song that also discusses relationships.
L.A. Scene
Albums and he really speaks to the listener and makes you feel like he knows what you are going through.

In my review for ...But Seriously, I implied that his 1989 chart-topper was the only essential Collins album. I was wrong. "Hello, I must be going!" is a great collection of songs, and one in the eye for anyone who thinks all PC songs sound alike. The variety here of moods, tempos and ideas is striking. I've never done this before on an amazon review, but here is a track by track analysis:
"I Don't Care Anymore": Listen to this one in the car on the way home from work--it will make you feel much better. Make sure to scream along with Phil. A hard rocker, rather In the Air Tonight-ish with its drums...still heard occasionally on classic rock stations.
"I Cannot Believe it's True": As a whole, HIMBG is less funky than Face Value, but PC brings the funk on this song. Great performance by the Phenix Horns. Good song, but my least favorite on the album (that should tell you something about the album!)
"Like China": Can Phil rock? This is one of PC's only songs with a straightforward guitar riff rock beat...and also, a good hook and great lyrics from Phil--tells a story of a young cockney lad (Phil) who promises to hold his young inexperienced girlfriend "like china."
"Do You Know Do You Care": Phil is phenomenal when he's pissed off (see In the Air Tonight, Domino, and track one of this same album!)...this is a slow and powerful song filled with rage at Phil's ex-wife (let us all prey to have better luck with marriage than Phil). Great when you're in the mood to let off some steam.
"You Can't Hurry Love": Okay, I don't have to fill you in on this one cos you all know it. A great pop song and ode to Motown.

Phil Collins dedicated "Hello, I Must Be Going" to his wife and children, "who put up with it all!" When the music starts, the divorce and family strife they put up with comes to blinding light and sound.
Over war drums, thunderous synth lines and wall-tearing horns (the EWF horn section is more pronounced here, sounding like Chicago's and less effective) Collins washes his hands of previous mistakes. "Let me by!" he shouts in "I Don't Care Anymore." "I've got better things to do with my time!"
Like similar albums following well-known breakups (Sinatra's "Wee Small Hours," Marvin Gaye's "Here, My Dear") this deals with the stages and emotions of separation: denial ("I Cannot Believe It's True") regret ("What else can I do but say I was wrong?" Phil asks in "Don't Let Him Steal Your Heart Away") accusation (the menacing drum/synth workout "Do You Know, Do You Care?") paranoia ("Thru These Walls" features a variation of "In The Air Tonight" drum fills) and finally, apathy (the previously mentioned "I Don't Care Anymore")
The songs closing the first and second halves of the LP balm the salted wounds. Collins' faithful rendition of "You Can't Hurry Love" seeks solace not only in parental advice, but in the radio classics of his youth (Motown is saluted in the liner notes, and Phil returned to these songs in Genesis encores). The gentle piano ballad "Why Can't It Wait 'Til Morning?" (later covered with Fourplay), features Phil sweetly singing, "You're going nowhere without me." It's a stark lyric beautifully performed, much like "Hello! I Must Be Going" itself.

The CD is great as far as the gold cd is concerned and there are more pages to the booklet that are a bit closer to what was in the original album. As far as this Phil Collins Hello, I Must Be Going CD being a remaster the sound quality sounds the same as the CD version I bought back in 1988. I listened to this first original CD release and compared it to this new Gold Remaster CD through quality headphones and a quality CD player and I'm not hearing where this recording was remastered on this Gold CD at all. They both sound the same. Phil Collins has two other releases that were released in this Gold CD collectors edition that are now out of print and sellers are selling them for ridiculously high prices because they are out of print. I don't understand why anyone would pay more for this Gold CD than what I paid for this one that is still in print. Great new packaging but sound quality is the same.

Format: Audio CD
On his second solo album, 1982's "Hello, I Must Be Going," Phil Collins shows two sides to himself: the happier man with a new ladylove in his life (the woman named Jill in the album credits), and the bitter man saying his last goodbyes to his first ex-wife. The end result is a powerful album, mixing tough rock with delectible pop, with a generous dose of horn-driven jazz/pop as well. It's one of Phil's best discs. The big hit from the album is Phil's faithful cover of the Supremes' "You Can't Hurry Love," and while Phil does great justice to the song, it's his own compositions that really stand out here. The angry "I Don't Care Anymore" & "Do You Know, Do You Care" are brilliant, powerful songs, with Phil's harsh lyrics, vocal & drumming attacks on both making these songs among his greatest recorded moments. "Like China" is a very humorous song (with Phil sporting a Cockney accent) about a young bloke who wants to make it with his girlfriend, but she keeps turning him down. The album's secret weapon, however, is the atmospheric "Thru These Walls," an outstanding song about a lonely man in desperate need of physical contact, but has to make do with hearing his next-door neighbors making love. It's one of Phil's strongest pieces. "I Cannot Believe It's True" & "It Don't Matter To Me" are both fine, upbeat jazz poppers, and "Don't Let Him Steal Your Heart Away" is an excellent mid-tempo ballad. Phil includes a great jazz rave-up with the instrumental "The West Side," and closes the album with the beautiful love song, "Why Can't It Wait 'Til Morning." Every song here is first-rate, as is Phil's work & production. "Hello, I Must Be Going" is a terrific second effort from Phil Collins.
