Phil Collins Hello, I Must Be Going! on 180g LP
Take A Look At Me Now Retrospective Reissue Campaign Release
Each Album in the Series will be Remastered by Nick Davis with Bold New Artwork Shot in the Present Day!
Phil Collins' Take A Look At Me Now retrospective campaign commences with the January 2016 releases of his classic albums Face Value and Both Sides. The next stage in the series comes in February with brand new versions of Hello, I Must Be Going! and Dance Into The Light. The Take A Look At Me Now campaign finds Phil Collins revisiting a career that can boast over 100 million sales and numerous worldwide #1 albums. His remaining four solo studio albums will also be released in the same format in the coming months.
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.
Entirely curated and compiled by Collins himself, his idea for the Take A Look At Me Now concept is to examine how his songs have evolved over time. Each album in the series 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. Each album features a bold new artwork concept in which Collins has recreated his poses from the original album covers with new photography that was shot in the present day.
