Product Description

Product Description

Universal are proud to make available four of Phil Collins finest individual albums, including the winner of the 1985 Grammy for Pop Album of the Year, 'No Jacket Required', chart topping '…But Seriously', and also the outstanding "Hello, I Must Be Going" and "Both Sides".

BBC Review

Phil Collins’ third solo album established him as the most unlikely superstar of the 80s. Number one in eight countries, over two million copies sold in the UK, where it has been certified six times platinum, and including no fewer than four American ten 10 singles (two of them US chart-toppers), No Jacket Required was as much of a mid-80s radio and CD player staple as Purple Rain, Born in the USA, Like a Virgin and Brothers in Arms.

It was the quintessential Live Aid-era album from the definitive Live Aid-era artist – not for nothing did Collins interrupt the No Jacket Required World Tour to appear at the Philadelphia and Wembley Stadium Live Aid events on the same day. It sounded quintessentially mid-80s, too, with its machine rhythms and blaring horns. You couldn’t get more mid-80s guests than Sting, Helen Terry and Peter Gabriel, who all provide backing vocals on the album. The placement of some of the songs on the soundtrack to Miami Vice was none-more-80s, while the video to Take Me Home, wherein Collins is filmed everywhere from Tokyo and Sydney to Moscow and Memphis, reeked of Reagan/Thatcher-era conspicuous consumption and like-punk-never-happened excess.

But there’s no denying that, for sheer proficiency and mastery of its domain, this blend of power ballads and synthed-up, hook-heavy rock remains unbeatable. Sussudio may have been in hock to Prince’s 1999 up to its rolled-up-jacket-sleeve elbows, but it was a blistering album opener. One More Night was a slow jam just crying out to be covered – or sampled (Collins is an unexpected rappers’ delight). Don’t Lose My Number, a US single, had melodic echoes of Easy Lover, Collins’ chart-topping team-up with Earth Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey from the same year. Take Me Home, the fourth single, ostensibly about a patient in a mental institution, successfully combined electronic and organic instrumentation.

Elsewhere, Long Long Way to Go recalled the work of fellow Genesis alumnus Gabriel and proved that Collins was equally adept at incorporating experimental ambient textures and world music polyrhythms into his music. No wonder it won the 1985 Grammy Award for Pop Album of the Year. --Paul Lester

I know that Phil is not necessarily the most fashionable person in the world. He's balding, used to have a beard so large that you could hide a badger in it (Thanks, Blackadder), and he dumped his wife by fax.
But so what? More than any other pop star, he's always been one of us. An ordinary bloke, who just happens to be able to play almost any instrument going, writes fantastic music, and has earned more money than some countries over the last 30 years.
And, in my view, he has not bettered this album. "But Seriously" came close (and was the first album I ever bought on CD), but "No Jacket Required" has everything. From the exuberance of "Sussudio", to the gentle heartbreak of "One More Night", all human emotions are here. However, for me, the top track is "Take Me Home"; a gentle start, building to an emotional crescendo, before dying back down again. Backing singers include Sting & Peter Gabriel; but try picking their voices out in the amazingly complex harmonies.
Now, maybe I still love this album because I remember what a happy time of my life was going on around it (oh, to be 16 again!), but every time I put it on, I want to dance, sing, laugh and cry. Fantastic. If you are looking for a slice of 80s pop which still sounds as fresh today, 20 years on (where DID that time go?), then this album is for you.
(P.S. If you can find an album called 12"ers, buy it; I think it's an inspired set of re-workings of some of the best songs on this album; "Take me Home" in particular is outstanding).

4.0 out of 5 stars Third Time's A Charm 18 Jun 2009
By Dave_42
Format:Audio CD
On January 25, 1985, Phil Collins released "No Jacket Required", perhaps the best of his solo work. As has been talked about many times, the title of the album refers to an incident where Phil was denied admittance to an establishment (The Pump Room in Chicago) because of his attire. This has some of Phil's best known work, and in many ways some of the most contrasting work he has ever done. There are songs on here which people don't like mixed in with people's favorites. The album won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1985.

The album opens with "Sussudio", a rather unlikely single and hit, and yet it managed to reach number one in the U.S. What I remember most about the song is the way David Letterman used to make fun of it. The song isn't one I care for much, but it obviously had great appeal to a large number of listeners. "Only You Know and I Know" is next, a more likeable track for me, and one of three for which Daryl Stuermer wrote the music. "Long Long Way to Go" is a song which has Sting providing backing vocals and his voice works well with Phil's. I don't really care for the somewhat gimmicky end, but all in all it is a pretty good piece. "I Don't Wanna Know" is a more lively piece at just the right time. This is the second of the pieces where the Stuermer wrote the music and Phil provided the lyrics. "One More Night" is one of those songs which the critics panned but Phil's fans like. It made it to number one in the U.S., and while clearly not the deepest lyric or most complex piece, it does provide a nice ending to the first half of the album.

"Don't Lose My Number" is a high energy piece to open the second half of the album.

All Phil Collins fans should have this CD in their collection. A fantastic opening number,Sussudio, starts this album and it doesn't look back. It's a fast, furious, energetic and upbeat track. I really enjoy this song as it makes you want to get up and dance round the living room! It then moves on to a much slower number One More Night, which is you're feeling under the weather, can be emotional and moving. Don't Lost My Number is again another lively full-of-life track as is Who Said I Would. A real get-up-and go album.

5.0 out of 5 stars ASTOUNDING! 24 Feb 2010
By EWEN
Format:Audio CD
This album was one of the biggest of the 1980's selling what I believe is some 30 million copies! It had number one singles around the world, grammy awards and Diamond certification in the USA AND topped the chats here in the UK and in the states for weeks. It propelled Phil Collins from a big star to a global mega star. Many say this was unlikely, but it really wasn't a surprise if you thought about it.
Phil had worked for many years with Genesis and had become their lead vocalist way back in 1976 when Peter Gabriel left. Over many Genesis albums and his first two solo albums, his voice grew stronger and more strident and he perfected the loud drum sound (gated-reverb) that is his trademark. Most importantly though is his growth as a song writer of great quality. All of this came together in spectacular fashion on the record I am reviewing...
No Jacket Required was his third solo album and it took off big time! Phil picked up on the sound of the time and produced perhaps the best pop/rock album of the 80's. It is one of those rare albums where you don't have to skip a track. Sussudio opens the album as it means to go on: pulsing heavy drum machine beat, EWF horns, extraordinary rythms, chugging bass and Phil's strong yet fragile and soulful voice. Yes it sounds like 1999 by Prince, but so what? This was a massive hit. We have Long Long Way To Go, which is a beautiful, melodic song with a haunting feel and great backing vocals from Sting. This is one of Phils best songs that isn't a single.
One More Night was a US number one and so well known I won't say much but this is a superior ballad in every sense, with super sax.
