PHIL COLLINS 'Going Back' [Release
Phil Collins presents his eagerly anticipated new soul album project 'Going
Back' on September 13th, pre-ceeded by the release of the single '(Love Is Like
A) Heatwave' on September 6th.
'Going Back' sees Phil Collins faithfully recreating some of his all time
favourite classic soul gems, and features a tangible link to the past courtesy
of performances from three members of legendary Motown session players The Funk
Brothers – bassist Bob Babbitt and guitarists Eddie Willis and Ray
records, but to try to recreate the sounds and feelings that I had when I first
heard them," say Collins. "My intention was to make an 'old' record, not a 'new'
record. To be able to have three of the surviving Funk Brothers play on all the
tracks was unbelievable. There was one moment when they were tracking '(Love Is
Like A) Heatwave' that I experienced a wave of happiness and wonder that this
was actually happening to me!"
