Phil Collins Recreates His Iconic Album Covers For First-Ever Deluxe Reissues

The world is ready for the critical reappraisal of solo Phil Collins. I’m not saying we need to assign canonical worth to the Tarzan, soundtrack or whatever, but “In The Air Tonight”? “Take Me Home”? “Against All Odds”? The man had jams, intensely emotive and expensive-sounding synth-rockers that were leagues removed from the things his adult-contemporary peers were making. And maybe we’ll get that reappraisal now that Collins is reissuing all eight of his solo albums, starting in November with 1981’s Face Value and 1993’s Both Sides. The reissues will include unreleased demos and live tracks, and they’ll also recreate the old album covers, showing Collins’ slightly weathered face the way it looks now. Below, check out the tracklists for both reissues and listen to an instrumental “Against All Odds” demo that appeared online a few years ago.
