Phil Collins - Face Value (35th anniversary)

Today (February 9th) marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of Face Value, the first solo studio album from the Genesis drummer Phil Collins. The record spent an amazing one hundred and sixty-four weeks on the US Billboard Album chart, achieving a top spot of number 7.

Face Value is an enjoyable and satisfying listen through and through. It's got a variety of material, is well produced and I like it a lot.

The 2016 Deluxe Edition double disc (delayed from planned 2015 release) did litle to enhance the listening experience with a second disc of live tracks and demos. No remixes, single edits or stray soundtrack singles. It is first in a series titled Take A Look At Me Now, which will see Collins himself overseeing the remastering of the orginal album tracks as well as curating the archival bonus tracks. In an unprecedented and original move, Collins is also featuring contemporary recreations of the original cover photos.

Thanks for the anniversary update - I have listened to the album twice now this week.
