Phil Collins Going Back To The Sixties

Phil Collins is "Going Back" to the sixties with the September 28th release of his new studio album.

"GOING BACK" is a deeply personal labor of love that finds the eight-time Grammy winner faithfully recreating the Motown and soul music that played such an influential role in his creative life (see complete track listing below).

While in the past Collins has paid tribute to his roots by covering some of his favorite songs including "You Can't Hurry Love," "A Groovy Kind Of Love," "Tomorrow Never Knows," "True Colours," and others this marks the first time in his 30-year solo career that he has devoted an entire project to the work of other songwriters and performers.

"The '60s were without doubt a pinnacle of the songwriting, producing and performing art," Collins comments in the liner notes to "GOING BACK."

"My aim in finally making this record was to see if it was possible for me to recapture the sound and the feelings I got from listening to these songs the first time around. I've always loved covering other people's songs, and this collection is something I've been burning to do."

On stage at recent appearances, Phil brought his homage to life with a big band anchored by three members of Motown's legendary Funk Brothers studio team bassist Bob Babbitt and guitarists Eddie Willis and Ray Monette who are also featured on the album. The live band also included long-time Collins cohorts Chester Thompson (drums), Daryl Stuermer (guitar), and Brad Cole (keyboards), plus Leslie Smith (percussion). Rounding out the ensemble was a five-member horn section and six backing vocalists.
