2CD deluxe edition of Collins’ second solo album ‘Hello I Must Be Going’ featuring the #1 single ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’, and 11 bonus tracks.
What’s the hook?
Initially released in 1982, Collins’ second album ‘Hello, I Must Be Going!’ focused on a more organically produced sound than his debut, with lyrics on tracks such as ‘I Don’t Care Anymore’ and ‘Thru These Walls’ providing a darker thematic core. By contrast, the album’s biggest hit was Collins’ upbeat interpretation of The Supremes’ ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ which became his first solo #1 single.
‘Hello, I Must Be Going!’ itself peaked at #2, and Collins would soon earn his first Brit and Grammy Award nominations.
Entirely curated and compiled by Collins himself, his idea for the deluxe edition is to examine how his songs have evolved over time, with most of the additional content throughout 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.
Featuring the 2016 remastered album, with 11 bonus tracks as well as the recreated version of the sleeve.
