iTunes Editors’ Notes

In taking an “all hits” approach to his 1990 concert album Serious Hits Live, Phil Collins underscored the immense impact his music had on the preceding decade. Of the 15 songs here, almost all are hits, as emblematic of the '80s as Miami Vice (which frequently featured Collins’ music on its soundtrack). For all his stature in the pop world, there's subtlety to Collins’ best songs. Thus it’s impressive to hear how adaptable they are to an arena setting. Of course, the punchy, percolating horn-driven rhythms of “Sussudio” and “Something Happened on the Way to Heaven” are perfectly suited to a large and energized crowd. But even the bleakly atmospheric mist of “In the Air Tonight” seems to gain power in this vast setting. While that song was originally conceived as a solo demo in the confines of Collins’ home, here it feels like a communal anthem elevated to Star Wars proportions. When Collins’ stone-crushing drums erupt in the second half, the song starts to feel like a march into the darkest recesses of the most colorful decade in pop music.

Customer Reviews

one the best live albums add it to your collection!

I went to this concert tour twice and listening to these songs brings back a flood of great memories. Practically every song is a hit and other than the fact that some of the songs were out of order it's just as I remembered it the energy and excitement...so if you're a fan and even if you're not get this album for your live collection you won't regret it!

Not to bad...

I had this on cassette years back and it is still good. Alot of the hits are from the 90's however, you do have some 80's classics on here. The sound quality of this is pretty good considering it was recorded in the mid 90's technology. This album was recorded in the UK.

Worth the money

This is just a classic. All these great songs from the 80's.

Phil Collins' ascent to the status of one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the '80s and beyond was probably as much of a surprise to him as it was to many others. Balding and diminutive, Collins was almost 30 years old when his first solo single, "In the Air Tonight," became a number two hit in his native U.K. (the...
