Phil Collins No Jacket Required 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 enters its third stage with the release of his classic albums No Jacket Required (1985) and Testify (2002) in April 2016. The four albums that have been reissued so far - Face Value (1981), Hello, I Must Be Going! (1982), Both Sides (1993) and Dance Into The Light (1996) - have sparked a major rediscovery and reappraisal of his solo career. The Take A Look At Me Now campaign finds Collins revisiting a career that can boast over 100 million sales and numerous worldwide No. 1 albums. The remaining two solo studio albums will also be released in the same format in the summer.
Released in 1985, Collins' third album No Jacket Required topped the charts in the UK, US, and numerous other countries all over the world on a journey that would result in three Grammy Awards (for Best Album, Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male, and Producer of the Year for Collins and co-producer Hugh Padgham) and over 20 million sales. Mixing Collins' trademark emotional ballads alongside strong funk and R&B influences, the album's hit singles - "Sussudio," "One More Night," "Don't Lose My Number," and "Take Me Home" - would also become staples of his live set in the years that followed.
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.
