Phil Collins revisits a career that can boast over 100 million sales and numerous worldwide #1 albums. Both Sides will be remastered by Nick Davis, who earned a Grammy nomination for Best Surround Sound album for his work on the Genesis ‘1970-1975’ box set. Davis has also worked on all of the Genesis retrospective reissues.
Entirely curated and compiled by Collins himself, his idea for this release is to examine how his songs have evolved over time, with the majority of the additional content throughout these releases focused on live versions of the tracks. By contrasting the original studio versions of the material with later performances, the series demonstrates how Collins’ songs take on a life of their own once they’re freed from the confines of the studio. 1993’s Both Sides shares a similarly introspective atmosphere to ‘Face Value’, and features the Top 10 hit ‘Both Sides of the Story’ as well as further singles in the shape of ‘Everyday’ and ‘We Wait And We Wonder’. The 180-gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl format (Double LP) features the remastered album as a stand-alone product.

Well,it's quite different in a lot of ways to Face value,and eg:Hello I must be going,But seriously,et al.
It's recorded almost entirely solo - no swirling horns,jolly sounding tunes etc.opening track:Both sides of the story; is an upbeat song,with a poignant message,and We wait and we wonder - with its powerful lyrics referring to the recent (in 1993),Warrington bomb terrorist attack,is somehow trying to make sense of such an atrocity - moving and powerful,that's for sure!
The rest of the original album is unfortunately,somewhat disappointing.yes,the songs are personal to Phil and are pleasant and melodic;but they adhere to a set formula,and see him become too self indulgent and even to wallow in self pity in places.Everyday is the best of these.ok then,We're sons of our father's,is rather nice too.
Disc 2: is a collection of previously unreleased (mainly) live recordings,with a couple of demo versions included.
This is a mixed bag;as some of the live tracks sound tiny,but the live version of 'we wait and we wonder',with its magnificent military snare drum sound,and bagpipes re-production played on a keyboard synthesizer - is truly outstanding.
Part of the 2015-16: Phil collins re-issued,re-packaged,re-mastered back catalogue;Both sides,(along with the other cd's),come in elaborate digi-pack formats,with new sleeve notes from PC.in the case of Both sides:his original sleeve notes (the first time he had ever done this on any of his solo albums),are re-produced.
The re-mastered sound is pretty good,but on the whole;I find 'Both sides' a disappointing long playing album.could be the reason I never bought any more Phil collins' solo albums - on release,ever again.
Ps:I have bought all the subsequent cd's in this re-issues series,and don't regret it one bit.
