Phil Collins - DVDs

The old post about Lee Sklar’s contributions to the Phil Collins catalog is now split into six separate posts. This is one of them, and you may click on the following links to be redirected to the other five:

Phil Collins ❏ - Studio and live albums
Phil Collins - Compilations With Non-Album Tracks/Alternate Versions/Previously Unreleased Tracks
Phil Collins - Single-only versions/remixes
Phil Collins - Unavailable on LP tracks
Phil Collins - Lee w/PC on Various Artists Audio/Video Compilations

We are waiting to add an entry for the “Phil Collins - Live at Montreux 2004” DVD.

Phil Collins - All Live!
Glass 2083 (2002) - Brazil DVD

1 - Only You And I Know*
2 - Against All Odds*
3 - Who Said I Would*
4 - Sussudio*
5 - Behind The Lines*
6 - Westside*
7 - One More Night*
8 - In The Air Tonight*

9 - Band Intro
10 - Like China*
11 - You Can’t Hurry Love*
12 - It Don’t Matter To Me*
13 - Hand In Hand*
14 - Take Me Home*
15 - It’s Alright*

16 - Droned

Notes: 1) This entry is about a Brazilian DVD re-release of the video known as “No Ticket Required”, originally released in the UK in 1986 on WEA Music Video 252 411-3 (VHS) and 252 411 (laserdisc). The live concert video was filmed during the May, 29, 1985 date that PC held at the Reunion Arena in Dallas, Texas, during a leg of the “No Jacket Required” World Tour. According to web sources it is possible that this DVD release be a bootleg, of inferior image quality than its laserdisc counterpart. My copy shows indeed a rather muddy NTSC image, but I have not seen the PAL laserdisc so I cannot make any first-hand comparison. 2) Track 16 (“Droned”) is a cut from the PC album “Face Value” mixed over the closing video credits. 3) The following credits were integrated with those taken from an image of the UK VHS release case. 4) My apologies for the low quality of the above picture, which was taken from the web and enhanced. 5) PAL VHS tape running time was 89:16.

Notes: 1) Following a cross-comparison with various web resources, this 2-DVD set appears to be a re-release of same performance already issued in 1990 as “Seriously Live In Berlin” on Virgin Vision VVD 783 (VHS - UK) and on Warner Music Vision 9031-72728-6 (laserdisc - Japan). Actual DVD video content shows indeed the “Seriously Live In Berlin” title superimposed on intial scene. According to same sources, track list and duration appear to be unchanged, minus the extra features. 2) While the DVD credits and title are alike to the LP’s (see entry in the Phil Collins - Studio and Live Albums post), the flip side of the case correctly states that the concert in question was filmed “In Berlin”. 3) Although both PC and Chester Thompson play percussion during the performance, no ‘percussion’ player is credited. 4) For more video notes and credits, please refer to actual video content. 5) Total duration is approx 184 mins, with concert being approx 160 mins and documentary (interview) approx 24 mins.

“If all has gone according to plan, you have in your hand more than just a memento of my last full tour. You will have a broad overview of a lot of what I’ve done in the last 25 years. There’ll be huge gaps of course…Genesis, there’s 30 years of work there alone. Brand X…the Princes Trust events… Hugely enjoyable times with Eric Clapton as his drummer…my big band tours with Quincy Jones and Tony Bennett, and the album that followed. …The acting…the numerous gigs, sessions and albums with some of my heroes… Lots more that I’m probably forgetting… So yes, there are some quite large holes that only a 5 or 6 DVD set could fill…maybe one day…
Anyway, just focusing on the solo work, as well as the full concert, you have access to many of the clips for the various singles…some hits, some not. Some seen, some not. Access to a few moments of relevance like “Live Aid” when I hopped continents, or “The Secret Policemans Other Ball” where I played “In The Air” on the piano for the very first time, quite terrified. Little moments that give alternate views of the same song.
There’s an interesting “period piece” that CBS screened in the USA to a mystified public during my “golden years” in the late 80’s, featuring a bizarre mix of people like Bruce Willis, John Travolta, John Candy, Dr. Dre, Henry Mancini, Gilbert Gottfried, The Ultimate Warrior and many many others… All this has been wrapped up to give a pocket guide to my efforts thus far, so dig in and enjoy…”.

“Before I go…..

to the players and singers who gave 110% every night just to make my music sound good,
to Pud and Howard and the crew for getting everything up in time and working,
to Tim, Danny and Noel for shepherding the band from sleep, to hotel, to stage, to hotel and back to sleep again,
to Michel and Alain and the sound crew who made it sound good whether we were in an arena, a stadium, an abattoir or a concrete shell,
to Vince and Telson for giving us something great to look at
to Scotty and the lighting crew for nursing the sick lights back to health,
to Ruary and his band of merry men for catching all the right moments,
to David and Vincent for ensuring the whole bloody thing didn’t fall on somebody,
to Eileen and Martha who had to be mum to the band and crew, and sew and iron and fix and wash,
to Mike and the Chippies for adding a bit here and taking it off there,
to the bus drivers who drove diligently through the night ferrying a sleeping crew just so they could put it all up again,
to the truck drivers who safely carried the instruments, lights and stage and confetti guns from country to country,
to the caterers who fed the army of skilled and unskilled labour as if it were a family of 4,
to the agents and promoters who gave everyone the opportunity to look and listen one last time,
to Nicky for balancing the books,
to Tony who with his left and right hands, Carol and Jo, guided and plotted the last 25 years of my life,
to Mike, Tony, Peter and Steve who shared some trailblazing moments all those years ago,
to all my friends and heroes who let me guide them or play for them,
to the fans who loyally stood in the wind, rain or snow so they could be at the front,
to the fans that bought the records,
to my kids who for the last 30 years have followed dad around the globe without complaint just because that’s his job,
to my wife Orianne for loving me and for responding honestly to my occasional great and sometimes terrible ideas,

to indeed everybody that has contributed in any way, small or otherwise, to me being able to play my music and make a living, and beyond…..

……..a huge thank you. PC xxx”.

“In 2004 I came to a major decision in my life. I decided to stop my seemingly endless days of touring. I had been on the road for the last 30 years, and now with 2 young children I decided that enough was enough. // It was time to say goodnight. // This film documents the last stage of that goodnight tour. It covered many places I'd never played before, and some places NO ONE had played before. The result was that we encountered many remarkable obstacles. // Sadly it was during this tour that my marriage slowly disintegrated before my eyes....and there was nothing to be done but continue. // Filmmaker Anthony Mathile was with me from the first day of rehearsals to the last day in Prague. Therefore he captured many moments, good/bad...happy/sad. For me it is a film of mixed emotions, but it is also a film that touches me more than anything I've done before. // PC”.
