Phil Collins Last 2 Take a Look at Me Now Campaign 2016The Phil Collins “Take A Look At Me Now” reissue campaign from Rhino/Atlantic enters its fourth stage with deluxe editions of his albums …But Seriously (1989) and a reimagined version of Going Back (2010), entitled The Essential Going Back, arriving on June 10. The six albums that have been reissued so far – Face Value (1981), Hello, I Must Be Going! (1982), No Jacket Required (1985), Both Sides (1993), Dance Into The Light (1996) and Testify (2002) – have sparked a major rediscovery and reappraisal of his solo career.

As with all of the previous reissues, Collins has recreated the album covers with newly updated images.

…But Seriously was Collins’ fourth solo album and became a worldwide #1 smash, led by the #1 hit “Another Day in Paradise.” The song earned the Grammy Award for Record of the Year. (The LP was nominated for Album of the Year.) Three other singles went Top 5: “Something Happened on the Way to Heaven,” “Do You Remember?” and “I Wish it Would Rain Down.”

Going Back was Collins’ homage to 1960s Motown and soul music with cover versions of no less than seven Holland-Dozier-Holland songs including “Love is Here and Now You’re Gone” and “(Love is Like a) Heatwave.”

The “Take A Look At Me Now” campaign finds the longtime Genesis lead vocalist, drummer and songwriter revisiting a career that has achieved over 100 million sales and numerous worldwide #1 albums.

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, with the majority of the additional content throughout the series focused on live versions of the tracks. By contrasting the original studio versions of the material with later performances, the series demonstrates how Collins’ songs take on a life of their own once they’re freed from the confines of the studio.
