Part 3: Face Value | 1979 - 1981


Last update: 9 May 2023



1979

Phil Collins unfortunately couldn't use his time out in Vancouver, Canada, to save his marriage. He found distraction immediately after his return when he holed up in Ringo Starr's studio with his buddies from Brand X to record material for a new album. The collective curiously works in two line-ups, which produces a wealth of session material that is subsequently released on three albums. Mr. Collins can be heard on the following tracks...

Towards the end of 1979, Phil helps out his old Genesis colleague Peter Gabriel, who no longer has a steady band and is increasingly keen on experimenting. For some tracks of his third album, Phil contributes the drum tracks, which are supposed to be completely without metal - i.e. cymbals. With the help of producer Steve Lillywhite's technical assistant, Hugh Padgham, the powerful drum sound was created for which Phil Collins would subsequently become famous...

In the course of 1979, Phil Collins tinkered with his own songs in his home "Old Croft", where he had set up a small home studio, in which he could process his failed marriage. Initially, it was not his plan to release a solo album like his colleagues Banks and Rutherford. He plays some of the demos to the two of them to possibly use them on the upcoming Genesis album...

Probably in spring 1981 Phil helps an old and a new friend. He drums three songs for a solo record by his old Flaming Youth band mate Brian Chatton and again for a new album by John Martyn, which he even gets to produce. This is the start of a third career for him, so to speak...

In May and June of that year, Phil concentrates on his band Genesis again when they record their new album ABACAB for the first time in their own, newly set-up studio "The Farm". Without any deadline pressure, they take the time to let the majority of the songs develop there first, but the Collins song Man On The Corner is also used. Ideas from his demo for Don't Break My Heart are also found on the non-album Track Me & Virgil. Probably in the summer of 1981, Phil finds the time to join Rupert Hine in the studio again for a percussion track and to record drums for ex-Procul Harum mastermind Gary Brooker's second solo album...
