  • THAT is a great set!


    A definite purchase!

  • It's certainly got some interesting stuff, especially disc 1, along with some that won't do much for me but on balance worth getting.


    Interesting choice for the sole genesis track. In a way I'm surprised it's got any Genesis or 'conventional' solo tracks on it. Perhaps as he wrote the lyric and perhaps is especially proud of the vocal, he went for that one.

  • That's fantastic news! I have for years had the intention of collecting songs which he played drums or sang on, but so far I haven't done the research and haven't sorted the songs I already have. Also, I don't feel like buying an entire album of some artist just because one song features Phil. But this box set is a valuable start! Now we just have to figure out which songs are missing!


    Of course there are a number of songs from the Flaming Youth album missing, but I already own that album and I recommend it to anyone not having it. Also he sang a duet with Frida from ABBA, called "Here We'll Stay", which is not on this box set. Well of course one could go on and on with this, especially regarding live appearances.

  • I remember Phil mentioning the possibility of such a release during the Take A Look At Me Now campaign but never really thought it would see the light of day. I'm so pleased to see they managed to get it together. Few musicians can have been in such demand and for such a prolonged period of time as Phil, not just as a drummer but also a vocalist and producer. And still, there are omissions from this box set. Maybe Phil forgot or they couldn't get the licensing. Here are the missing tracks that come immediately to mind:


    George Harrison - Art Of Dying (Phil: congas)


    Bruce Hornsby - Long Tall Cool One (Phil: backing vocals); Talk Of The Town (Phil:bongos); China Doll (Phil: backing vocals); Fields Of Grey (Phil: tambourine, backing vocals)


    Lamont Dozier - The Quiet's Too Loud (Phil: backing vocals)


    He also played on the following albums (not sure which tracks):


    Cafe Jacques - Round The Back


    Thin Lizzy - Johnny The Fox


    Camel - I Can See Your House From Here


    Brian Chatton - Playing For Time


    Marti Webb - I'm Not The Kind Of Girl

  • So here it is

    A nice digibook, interesting sleeve notes. What do you think?

    I loved reading the sleeve notes! They were more extensive than I thought they would be.


    As others have indicated, there would always be songs that you might prefer were on it; however, for me personally, it had a large majority of the songs I would have wanted for such a set (e.g., I've always liked his work on Frida's single; without this set, I wouldn't have it on CD - there are other songs that are equally appreciated).


    I'm really glad this set exists and that I now have it! 8)
