After achieving stardom by taking over the lead vocals of Genesis from Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins released his first solo album 'Face Value' in 1980. This chapter of the Classic Albums series explores the making of this album in a one-hour documentary film, with Collins himself providing the bulk of the insightful commentary.
From his home studio, he discusses how the lyrics to 'In the Air Tonight' wrote themselves after his painful divorce and why a drummer would ever use a drum machine. Also interviewed are engineer Hugh Padgham, producer Ahmet Ertegun, Genesis colleagues Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford, and many of the studio musicians. Songs such as 'Behind the Lines', 'I Missed Again', 'The Roof Is Leaking', 'This Must Be Love', and of course 'In the Air Tonight' are excerpted in both home and concert footage (some of it previously unreleased), and Collins accompanies himself at the piano in a wrenching 'Please Don't Ask', which was cut from the album.
