Phil Collins - Face Value [LP] (Picture Disc)
Phil Collins is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, music producer and actor. He gained fame as both the drummer and lead singer for the rock band Genesis, and he also gained worldwide fame as a solo artist. Collins is one of the most successful songwriters and performers of all time, singing the lead vocals on dozens of hit albums and singles in the UK and the US between 1976 and 2010, either as a solo artist or with Genesis. He has been described by AllMusic as "one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the '80s and beyond."
Co-produced by Hugh Padgham, Phil Collins's first departure from prog rock band Genesis was received with great critical acclaim achieving No.1 status in the UK album charts, No. 2 in Germany and Australia and No.7 in US Billboard 200 charts.
"In The Air Tonight" was the lead single, released on the 5th January 1981, and has held its own ever since, proving just how popular a track it is over and over again with different generations.
Face Value also includes singles "I Missed Again" & "If Leaving Me Is Easy'' as well as a cover of The Beatles "Tomorrow Never Knows" leading into an unlisted 30 second rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow."
...[I]t's Collins's most honest, most compelling work. He went on to become a huge star, with loads more hits, but Face Value stands as his masterpiece and one of the finest moments of the '80s musical landscape.
