Phil Collins Announces No Jacket Required and Testify Reissues

(Classic Rock) Phil Collins will release the next round of his solo reissues series next month. The Genesis man's Take A Look At Me Now campaign continues on April 15, when his albums No Jacket Required from 1985 and 2002's Testify will be released.

Collins has curated and complied all the albums in the series, with each presented with updated artwork and featuring extra live tracks and demos - many of which have never been issued on CD before.

Collins previously said the idea of including live cuts was to see how the tracks have evolved over time by contrasting the original studio versions with later concert performances.

He said: "I've always been quite proud of my demos and have often made them available as B-sides, but with a few exceptions, I have avoided including those on these collections. Instead, I've focused on how nicely the songs developed when played on stage, rather than showing how they originated." Read more here.
