It's been a busy few years for Phil Collins. Most recently, he wrapped up the U.S. leg of the successful Not Dead Yet Live! Tour. He released the recent compilation, Plays Well With Others, which saw him dipping into his archives to find his session appearances and collaborations. He also released The Singles and oversaw the remastering of his studio work with the "Take A Look At Me Now" reissue series. Now, the campaign continues with the February 1 release of two remastered live albums from Atlantic/Rhino: Serious Hits... Live! and A Hot Night In Paris.
Serious Hits... Live! is considered one of the most successful live albums ever made. Since its release in 1990, it has been certified 4x Platinum with over 4 million copies sold. Culled from stadium and arena shows from his Seriously, Live! World Tour, the album finds Collins performing many of his biggest hits, from "Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)" and "You Can't Hurry Love" to "Another Day In Paradise" and "Easy Lover" featuring Philip Bailey.
Meanwhile, 1999's A Hot Night In Paris is a jazzier affair, with instrumental performances of songs from across Collins' solo discography, as well as select tracks from his time in Genesis. Credited to The Phil Collins Big Band and featuring Collins on drums, the album also features covers of Miles Davis's "Milestones" and The Average White Band's "Pick Up the Pieces." The latter features George Duke on keyboards.
These two contrasting live documents have been newly remastered for their upcoming CD release. Both titles will be available February 1 from Atlantic/Rhino. Check out the full track listing and find preorder links below!
