January 10, 2017 When Phil Collins Was Cool


Phil Collins, Hello I  Must Be Going!, Atlantic A4-80035, 1982

Yes there was a time when Phil Collins was the cool one.  When only the coolest people knew about him or bought his records.  Sure, it didn’t last long, and he became the everywhere 80s pop star that everyone has an opinion on.  It was all on the verge of happening when this record came out.


Sure, the purest of Collins-istas looked past the cheesy cover of The Supremes’ You Cant Hurry Love, even as it became Phil’s first pop top 10 single in the US.  We looked at the album tracks, so full of innovated rhythm tracks, and soul style horns.  And they were really good.


It all came crashing down with Against All Odds, but this album, and its predecessor Face Value have enough tracks to keep cheap vinyl buyers happy without having to hear Sussudio!

Today’s Summary:
Cost: $2, $504 Remaining
