Editors’ Notes

Anchored by a percussive and ominous exorcism on par with “In the Air Tonight” (“I Don’t Care Anymore”), and a gleaming '80s update of a Motown hit (“You Can’t Hurry Love”), Hello, I Must Be Going! is very much an extension of Face Value, Phil Collins' hugely successful 1981 debut. But where the after effects of Collins’ bitter divorce ignited Face Value, this album points in a new direction: to the spry and upbeat songs he would craft in the years that followed. While just a few years earlier Collins had been ensconced in Genesis' moody progressive rock, “I Cannot Believe It’s True" and “It Doesn’t Matter to Me” bring him closer to the work of a singer like Gloria Estefan. Though they mirror the glamor of the '80s, Collins’ songs are authentic and substantial, and they're bolstered by his old-world musical chops. Moreover, the stocky English vocalist proved as nimble and light on his feet as a youthful samba musician. In another surprising turn, “Why Can’t It Wait ‘Til Morning” confirmed the mischievous and moody Collins as one of the decade’s great ballad singers.

Customer Reviews


Not many true music buffs on iTunes, that's for sure. Whatever is new and popular. Just maybe you get lucky and stumble upon a treasure like "Hello, I Must Be Going". Phil and Hugh Padgham were a great team, producing so many wonderful new sounds; the "Intruder" gated reverb, the famous "bathroom drum sound" Phil spoke of, edgy vocal effects, the subject material, splashy wide-open swing, heavy-bottomed rock, jazz, R&B, some classical, prog, it's all here.
Check it out. Go ahead!!

I still care

Phil is the man

My Favorite Phil Collins Album

Growing up, I listened to this album all the time along with 'Face Value', and 'No Jacket Required'. This was by far my favorite of the three. Great songs. It's a shame Phil's undergone a popularity backlash. He's still the man!

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 song was a Top 20 hit in the U.S.). Between 1984 and 1990, Collins had a string of 13 straight U.S. Top Ten hits. Long before any of that happened, however,...
