Phil Collins doesn't need to achieve anything more in music and his legacy is secure. He was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his other Genesis colleagues. So, when you hear this album you know this is a labour of love with songs that are very dear to Phil's heart. It says everything for Phil's talent that he was able to secure the services of the Funk Brothers who played on the original records.
This album is a special one and manages to recreate the orignal sound and feel of these classic Motown songs. Alongside the heavyweights, it's a delight to hear lesser known numbers such as 'In My Lonley Room' which are given a superb rendition.
The Stevie Wonder ballads 'Blame it on the Sun' and 'Never dreamed you'd leave in Summer' are arranged and sung beautifully, while the title track is Collins at his very best.
Everything is alright for sure with this album!
