Atlantic Records released "Phil Collins.....Hits" back in 1998. And in spite of the fact that another new 2 disc collection was released in 2004 if you are primarily interested in his biggest hits then this is still by far your best buy. I particularly enjoyed Phil's upbeat pop offerings like "Two Hearts", "Sussidio", "You Can't Hurry Love" and perhaps my favorite tune of the decade "Easy Lover". You'll also find #1 tunes like "Another Day In Paradise", "Against All Odds" as well as the highly annoying "One More Night". How I hated that song!!!! Am I the only one? Then there is the unlikely remake of the 1966 hit "Groovy Kind of Love". Phil managed to take that one all the way to the top of the charts in fall of 1988. Speaking of remakes I also enjoyed Phil's version of the Cindy Lauper hit "True Colors". In fact, I think it is far better than the original. I also wanted to make you aware that a couple of Phil's biggest hits were left off this disc including 1985's "Don't Lose My Number" and one of his last big chart hits "Do You Remember?
This is a fine collection of one of the seminal artists of the 1980's. However, I stopped short of a five star rating due to the complete lack of any meaningful liner notes.Read more ›
His divorce in 1980 was the grist that created "Face Value," and before you could say "mike up those drums," "In The Air Tonight" became the new sound of percussionists everywhere. Only Phil and Peter Gabriel had this kind of pummel in their music, and the song's inclusion in "Miami Vice" burned it into the national subconscious...even enough to start an urban legend about the lyric's subject matter.
There was still some left-over emotional baggage for "Hello, I Must Be Going," but it was Collin's choice of a Motown cover that landed him on the charts. "You Can't Hurry Love" was the beginning of his nascent blue-eyed soul string of hits. By the time the monster album "No Jacket Required" appeared, Phil was making songs that aped Prince ("Sussudio") and carried a full-on horn section that was reminiscent of Earth Wind and Fire. He even became an in-demand producer, and gave EWF's Phillip Bailey his only major solo hit by duetting on "Easy Lover."
That demand extended into films. He added the Oscar nominated "Separate Lives" and "Against All Odds" to his resume and starred in "Buster." (He also had a memorable cameo in the HBO AIDS drama "And The Band Played On.") But he was also beginning to push for larger things. On the next album, "But Seriously," he tried to get - well - serious.Read more ›

Phil Collins is soaking in his own voice and musical production here as his music is as heart felt as his drive and motivation here.Published 18 days ago by Ken Belangel

I love the vocals and drums in all of Phil Collins songs. Great rhythm and melody. Too bad he's not making any more music.Published 1 month ago by PattyNick
