Here you will find my Phil Collins pre-FM Live Radio Show Transcriptions and pre-FM Radio Interview Guide. This is similar to and inspired by David Dunnington's Complete Guide to Live Genesis Radio Shows, which can be found HERE. Having been a massive fan of both Phil Collins and Genesis since I was a teenager, and having been a collector of live concert bootlegs from those artists (and others) since about 2006, I have found Dave's Radio Guide to be most helpful. The only problem is that Dave's work centered specifically on Genesis radio shows and not the supporting bandmates. I have searched for and never found a similar guide for Phil Collins shows, so I decided to create one of my own. The shows listed on this page are all pre-FM sourced shows, either on vinyl LPs or compact discs, as I've always had a fondness for those old King Biscuit Flower Hour and Westwood One radio shows. What makes these shows so unique is that they were sent to radio stations across the United States with the express instructions that they were to be destroyed or returned after one airplay. Many were not returned or destroyed, but most were. Thus there exists a limited supply of these pre-FM shows, especially on vinyl. (Dave's Guide has much more information about these type of shows, so please check out his page. In addition, for the most extensive list of live Genesis related material ever compiled, please visit Simon Funnel's fantastic Genesis Movement website, where you will find everything you ever wanted to know about the band and its members, along with links to Torrents of most - if not all - of the shows listed here. I will reference Simon's site often on this page as well.) With that in mind, it is my ultimate goal to make THIS PAGE as complete as possible to include all of the known pre-FM recordings of radio concerts and interview shows. (At the bottom of the page, I've included a listing of Radio Interview specials as well.) I am choosing to leave out the FM broadcasts and simulcasts (with the exception of two notable concerts, one from 1985's NO JACKET REQUIRED TOUR and one from 1990's BUT SERIOUSLY TOUR) because those shows are catalogued in extensive detail over on Simon's site, and to list them here would simply be redundant. All live shows are organized within each Tour and then listed in the order of their ORGINAL AIRDATE, not their recording date. This page is a work in progress, and as such, more shows will be added as I obtain information about them. For now, I have listed every show that I have knowledge of. As I only have access to a very limited number of these shows in my personal collection, if you have any information on any pre-FM Phil Collins live concert radio broadcasts or interview specials, and you would like to have them added to this Guide, please email me at toprotectandserveall@gmail.com.

Where applicable, you can view scans of the radio show Cue Sheets by clicking the icon as well as scans of the actual LPs or compact discs by clicking the icon. And finally, you can view pics and/or scans of the LP or CD covers by clicking the icon.

Lastly, a word of thanks to Simon Funnell for his wonderfully extensive Genesis Movement website and for his tireless work over at the Genesis Movement Torrent website, along with Rance B. (musicalmet1) from upstate New York for his assistance with show information and some of the scans. Enjoy!

      Supergroups In Concert:
      ABC Rock Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at Perkins Palace, Pasadena California - 19 December 1982
      Original Airdate - Week of 16 April 1983
      pre-FM Triple Vinyl LP Set


      They say you never forget your first, and this show captured Phil live in all his glory on his first solo outing. This is the earliest known radio show from Phil's first solo tour, and while that is the case, this set was one of the last that I picked up for my collection. The performance was recorded at the same venue in conjunction with video that was captured and edited down for release on VHS and Laserdisc, however, no DVD or Blu-ray release has ever materialized. (A scan of the VHS cover from my personal collection appears below.) Contains original DJ introductions by Pat St. John, original commercial blocks, and a version of Phil's lengthy band introductions which - except for the below listed Warner Theater show Captured Live! #CL-783 A-F - does not appear on future recordings from this tour. Blistering versions of I Don't Care Anymore, The West Side, Hand In Hand and In The Air Tonight highlight this show in addition to the rarely played Don't Let Him Steal Your Heart Away. Nice rare set to have, one which captures a show that was ultimately far less reproduced than the following show from The Warner Theatre later in this same tour. As was usually the case, this recording does not contain the complete performance from that night. For the remainder of this page, any recording which did not capture the complete performance for a given night will be listed with "Incomplete capture" in the narrative. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.


      Captured Live! #CL-783 A-F:
      RKO Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at The Warner Theatre, Washington, D.C. - 20 February 1983
      Original Airdate - Week of 27 June 1983
      pre-FM Triple Vinyl LP Set
      Yellow Label / Cue Sheet Version


      Recorded on the final night of the tour, this vinyl set is the earliest incarnation of this particular radio show available on LP. It is an extremely rare and hard to find set, the value of which keeps increasing. The crowd sound on this one is a bit "muffled" compared to other versions of this concert, which I list below, but it is still an amazing set to own. Contains original DJ introductions by Perry Stone, however, there are no commercial blocks on this set which is unlike future pre-FM vinyl releases. Interestingly, this show also contains a recording of Phil's lengthy band introductions, which doesn't ever appear on any future recordings of the show. In addition this set's running order is far closer to the actual setlist than any future releases of this show. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      King Biscuit Flower Hour:
      ABC Rock Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at Perkins Palace, Pasadena, California - 19 December 1982
      Original Airdate - Week of 24 July 1983
      pre-FM Double Vinyl LP Set


      Much like the below listed King Biscuit #02-20 show, this recording CLAIMS to be from The Tower Theatre in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (which occurred on 10 December 1982) and even includes Phil saying "Good evening, Philadelphia!" in the first segment. Phil further mentions this being the evening show from that venue, however, the audio from most of the actual songs is clearly from the Perkins Palace show. We know that the Biscuit recorded both the early and late shows at The Tower Theatre on this tour as evidenced by their existence over at the Wolfgang's Concert Vault website, (head HERE and search "Phil Collins" to hear those shows) however, this show is not from that venue. The song order on this one is bit jumbled, with I Missed Again being the first live track on Side A, and I Don't Care Anymore starting off Side B. No Cue Sheets came with this set when I purchased it from eBay. Contains original commercial blocks and intros by King Biscuit regular contributor Bill Minkin. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      King Biscuit Flower Hour: The Best Of The Biscuit - Phil Collins / Chris de Burgh
      ABC Rock Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at Perkins Palace, Pasadena, California - 19 December 1982 and
      The Montreal Forum, Montreal, Canada - Unknown Date
      Original Airdate - Week of 4 December 1983
      pre-FM Double Vinyl LP Set


      This recording also CLAIMS to be from The Tower Theatre, however, the audio from most of the actual songs during Phil's set is from the Perkins Palace show. This is a trimmed down "best of" show, so not all songs are presented here. Chris de Burgh's set was recorded at the Montreal Forum on an unknown/unlisted date. Phil's portion of the show takes up Sides A & B, with de Burgh's portion relegated (as it should be) to Side C. Side D is blank on this set. Contains original commercial blocks and intros by King Biscuit regular contributor Bill Minkin. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection, better scans forthcoming. Complete track listing HERE.

      File Under... Phile Collins First Live Serving:
      King Toot Records
      Recorded live at Perkins Palace, Pasadena, California - 19 December 1982
      Original Airdate - March 1984
      pre-FM Double Vinyl LP Set


      This set is a bit of an anomaly, in that it's not necessarily a radio program but actually a bootleg of the Perkins Palace show on vinyl. There is no evidence to suggest that this set was ever used for radio broadcast, but little evidence exists that it was NOT used as such either. There are no DJ introductions nor any commercial blocks on this set, leading one to believe it was strictly an unofficial bootleg version of the show. That said, the quality is such that the tracks leave a lot to be desired as it sounds more like a recording of an FM broadcast transferred to vinyl. Either way, it's an extremely rare set and hard to find, thus I felt it deserved inclusion here. It also appears to be the only unofficial bootleg LP set of Phil's music that I can find. The company that produced this bootleg copy intentionally misspelled Phil's first name as “Phille”, and further printed labels on the LPs suggesting Big Band music as a means to avoid detection of their bootleg activities. The "original airdate" as I have listed it above is derived from the back of the album sleeve which states: Calif. March, 1984. I actually believe that this date is meant to suggest the recording date, however, we know that Phil's first solo tour was over by February of 1983. In fact, by March of 1984, Genesis had already completed a huge world tour in support of their 1983 self-titled (aka MAMA) album; a tour which began in November of 1983 and finished up on 29 February 1984. Therefore, this date cannot be the actual recording date, thus I chose to list it as a possible broadcast date. Of course, this could also just be the release date of the LP set itself. Regardless of this, investigation into the actual tracks reveals them to have been recorded at Perkins Palace in December 1982. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      Captured Live! #CL-1684 A-D:
      RKO Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at The Warner Theatre, Washington, D.C. - 20 February 1983
      Original Airdate - Week of 14 May 1984
      pre-FM Quadruple Vinyl LP Set
      Blue Label / Cue Sheet Version


      This set contains some of the same material as listed in the Captured Live! show above, reproduced and repackaged for airing in May of 1984. This show DOES NOT contain the following songs, which ARE featured in the other Captured Live! incarnation of this show, CL 783 A-D: This Must Be Love, Thru These Walls, You Know What I Mean, The Roof Is Leaking and The West Side, consequently, the total running time on this version is 51:31, whereas the running time for CL 783 A-D is 81:45. Therefore, this is a reduced performance from an already incomplete capture. The interesting thing about this set is that it comes on four vinyl LPs. The first two LPs contain the show with host Jim Ladd, and the second set comes "unhosted", allowing local radio DJ's to produce their own version of the show. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      Westwood One Superstars Concert Series #SS84-15:
      Westwood One Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at The Warner Theatre, Washington, D.C. - 20 February 1983
      Original Airdate - Week of 28 July 1984
      pre-FM Triple Vinyl LP Set


      This show was completely unknown to me until it recently popped up on eBay. Prior to that, I was only aware of the three Warner Theatre captures which are listed below. This concert, again from the final night of Phil's first solo tour, was recorded and produced on pre-FM vinyl LPs at least four times between 1984 and 1985 under the Superstars Concert Series banner, utilizing show numbers #SS84-15 (this show), #SS84-25, #SS85-10 and #SS85-26. This set, like the following three, contains the same tracks as the aforementioned Captured Live! #CL-783 A-F show, (with the exception of the Band Introductions, which appears on Captured Live! #CL-783 A-F but not on this set) but in a slightly different running order. Also, not quite as rare as Captured Live! #CL-783 A-F, but still much harder to find than #SS85-26. (Again, until just recently, I had never seen this particular version of this show available anywhere, and therefore did not know of its existence.) The performance is one of Phil's best from this tour, and it definitely leaves the listener wanting more. In particular, the versions of Hand In Hand and And So To F... (which is misidentified as "In Soto F" on all four of the #SS Cue Sheets) are blazing hot. Both tracks highlight Phil's thunderous drum skills along with Mo Foster's thumping, popping, badass bass lines. This is the one show that makes me wish I had a time machine so that I could go back and see it for myself! (I've actually seen Mark Knopfler and his band twice at this same venue, and both times I imagined what it must have been like to be there for THIS show.) The sound on all four of the Superstar Concert Series shows is much "brighter" than the Captured Live! #CL-783 A-F version of this show, with the ambient audience noise much more present and loud. Contains original commercial blocks and DJ introductions by Phil Henry. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      Westwood One Superstars Concert Series #SS84-25:
      Westwood One Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at The Warner Theatre, Washington, D.C. - 20 February 1983
      Original Airdate - Week of 15 December 1984
      pre-FM Triple Vinyl LP Set


      The second of at least four versions of this show under the Superstars Concert Series banner, this is a repackaged version of #SS84-15, with the exact same musical content, set for airing in December of 1984 instead of July of that same year. Contains original commercial blocks and DJ introductions by Phil Henry. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      Westwood One Superstars Concert Series #SS85-10:
      Westwood One Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at The Warner Theatre, Washington, D.C. - 20 February 1983
      Original Airdate - Week of 22 June 1985
      pre-FM Triple Vinyl LP Set


      Exact same show as #SS84-15, #SS84-25 and #SS85-26, but repackaged for airing in June of 1985. The third of at least four versions of this show under the Superstars Concert Series banner, this version is very hard to find, but contains the same tracks as listed above and below. Contains original commercial blocks and DJ introductions. Incomplete capture. I do not have this version in my personal collection, but I am seeking a copy on vinyl. If you have a copy that you are willing to part with, please email me at toprotectandserveall@gmail.com.

      Westwood One Superstars Concert Series #SS85-26:
      Westwood One Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at The Warner Theatre, Washington, D.C. - 20 February 1983
      Original Airdate - Week of 28 December 1985
      pre-FM Triple Vinyl LP Set


      Exact same show as #SS84-15, #SS84-25 and #SS85-10, but repackaged for airing in December of 1985. The fourth of at least four versions of this show under the Superstars Concert Series banner. For some reason, this seems to be the more popular (or at least more readily available) version of the show as it frequently pops up on eBay. That said, I prefer the earlier incarnation of Captured Live! #CL-783 A-F and #SS84-15 for this date and venue as they are the more rare versions available. (For me, the "rareness" of the LPs makes them more appealing for some reason!) Contains original commercial blocks and DJ introductions by Charlie Kendall. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      King Biscuit Flower Hour (Unknown Show Number):
      King Biscuit Radio Corporation Records
      Recorded live at The Warner Theatre, Washington, D.C. - 20 February 1983
      Original Airdate - Week of 26 October 1992
      pre-FM Single Compact Disc


      Another version of the Warner Theatre show, this time under the King Biscuit label. Incomplete capture. Complete track listing HERE. Scans provided by Rance B.

      King Biscuit Flower Hour (Unknown Show Number):
      King Biscuit Radio Corporation Records
      Recorded live at Perkins Palace, Pasadena, California - 19 December 1982
      Original Airdate - Week of 9 - 15 November 1998
      pre-FM Single Compact Disc


      Another version of the Perkins Palace show, this time under the King Biscuit label. Contains original commercial blocks and DJ introductions by Ed Shockey. Incomplete capture. Complete track listing HERE. Scans provided by Rafael.

      Phil Collins King Biscuit Flower Hour Show #02-20:
      King Biscuit Radio Corporation Records
      Recorded live at Perkins Palace, Pasadena, California - 19 December 1982
      Original Airdate - Week of 13 April 2002
      pre-FM Single Compact Disc


      Like the above listed King Biscuit pre-FM Vinyl Transfer from 1983, this recording also CLAIMS to be from The Tower Theatre in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (which occurred on 10 December 1982) and even includes Phil saying "Good evening, Philadelphia!" after I Don't Care Anymore, however, the audio of the actual songs is clearly from the Perkins Palace show. Note that the Cue Sheet indicates that the show aired in May of 2002 while the actual discs states April of that year. There are currently at least five different KBFH pre-FM CDs available with varying tracklists, featuring most of the show between them. Contains original commercial blocks and DJ introductions by Marc Coppolla. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      Phil Collins King Biscuit Flower Hour (Unknown show number):
      King Biscuit Radio Corporation Records
      Recorded live at Perkins Palace, Pasadena, California - 19 December 1982
      Original Airdate - Week of 20 September 2004
      pre-FM Single Compact Disc


      Exact same show as #02-20 listed above. The show number for this disc is unknown as this information was obtained from an eBay listing and the Seller does not possess the Cue Sheet.



  • THE PRINCIPLE OF MOMENTS TOUR (With Robert Plant) - August 1983 through October 1983


      Robert Plant (with Phil Collins) King Biscuit Flower Hour #84-20:
      D.I.R. Broadcasting Corporation / ABC Rock Radio Network Records
      Recorded Live at The Summit, Houston, Texas, The Frank Erwin Center, Austin, Texas
      and The Reunion Arena, Dallas, Texas - 20/21/22 September 1983
      Original Airdate - Part I: 29 January 1984 / Part II: 5 February 1984
      pre-FM Quadruple Vinyl LP Set


      A four album, two-part set of vinyl broadcast discs recorded over the course of three nights in Texas. Phil played drums on this short tour. No artwork as such exists as the album covers were plain white since the set was meant to be played once for broadcast and then discarded. Extremely rare and hard to find. (There is actually a Seller on eBay who was asking $5,500 for each part of the set!) Contains original commercial blocks and DJ introductions by King Biscuit regular contributor, Bill Minkin. This is the only known professional recording in existence from this brilliant tour. Incomplete capture. While I don't have this vinyl set in my personal collection, I do have a copy which includes the Cue Sheets and LP labels featured below. Complete track listing HERE.



  • THE NO JACKET REQUIRED TOUR - February 1985 through July 1985


      I don't know of any pre-FM shows from this tour, and Simon's Movement site does not list any. In fact, there are no FM broadcasts or simulcasts listed there either for this tour, with the exception of the following show. That said, there is also one soundboard recording in circulation, from the Sydney Entertainment Centre in Melbourne, Australia. Other than those two shows, there appear to be no other "non-audience" recordings from this tour, but part of me believes that there must be some pre-FM show(s) out there somewhere. If you have any information regarding pre-FM shows from this tour, please contact me at toprotectandserveall@gmail.com.

      Phil Collins No Jacket Required... Sold Out:
      Home Box Office (HBO) Cable TV Broadcast and FM Stereo Simulcast
      Recorded live at The Reunion Arena, Dallas, Texas - 29 May 1985
      Original Airdate - 28 September 1985
      FM Stereo Simulcast


      While this Guide has primarily focused on pre-FM versions of Phil's performances, (and will continue to do so) I feel this FM simulcast and the next one listed below should be added as they are excellent documentations of what it's like to attend a Phil Collins concert. As mentioned above, there are no pre-FM recordings from this tour, which I find very confusing given Phil's popularity at the time. In 1985, Phil was at the height of his fame and very much in the public eye, having just released his most successful album to date, NO JACKET REQUIRED, (released on 18 February 1985) having filmed an episode for the hit television series MIAMI VICE, (although that episode wouldn't air until December of 1985) and having just completed a massive tour with Genesis. (All this BEFORE his much talked about, two continent hopping LIVE AID performances, which you can view pictures of below!) In fact, this lack of material in pre-FM form is even harder to digest when one considers the fact that both the King Biscuit and Westwood One companies recorded performances by Genesis on their 1983/84 and 1986/87 tours, which bookended Phil's '85 outings. (Shows at the Philadelphia Spectrum and the Los Angeles Forum were recorded and sent to radio stations on vinyl during the MAMA tour, and shows at the Los Angeles Forum were captured and produced during the INVISIBLE TOUCH tour, copies of which can be found on LP and later on compact discs.) So the idea that said labels would choose to completely ignore the NO JACKET tour is unfathomable. It appears that the closest thing to a professional recording of a show from this tour is the official VHS release PHIL COLLINS: NO TICKET REQUIRED, which captured a portion of the show from The Reunion Arena in Dallas, Texas. This video originated as an HBO special, directed by Jim Yukich and produced by Paul Flattery, and was originally entitled NO JACKET REQUIRED... SOLD OUT. The broadcast was later released on VHS with extended footage and the title changed to PHIL COLLINS: NO TICKET REQUIRED. It won a Cable Ace Award for best TV Music special in 1986, and was simulcast in stereo via radio stations in the United States at that time of its original airing. It later turned up as a DVD version released in Brazil. (A scan of the VHS cover and the Brazilian DVD release from my personal collection appear below.) The original broadcast date, as listed, is derived from a magazine promotional advertisement produced by Westwood One. (You can view a picture of this ad using the first link below.) While HBO did broadcast songs from this night, their broadcast is incomplete and only lasted one hour. Obviously, since the show did not run until September of that year, the broadcast and simulcast did not occur live as it happened. HBO simply recorded the entire performance, then edited it down for broadcast and simulcast at a later date. I do recall watching and even recording both the HBO broadcast and the FM stereo simulcast, but those tapes are long since lost. Incomplete capture. Complete track listing HERE.



  • THE BUT SERIOUSLY TOUR - February 1990 through October 1990


      As with the NO JACKET REQUIRED TOUR listed above, I don't know of any pre-FM shows from this tour, and Simon's Movement site does not list any. In fact, there are no FM broadcasts or simulcasts listed there either for this tour with the exception of the next listing below. It appears that the closest thing to a professional recording of a show from this tour is the official VHS and DVD release SERIOUSLY LIVE IN BERLIN, which captured the entire show from an outdoor venue known as The Waldebuehne in Berlin, Germany. (A scan of the DVD cover from my personal collection appears below.) That said, there are also numerous soundboard recordings from this tour in circulation, as listed on Simon's site. The best of these are two shows - one from the Sydney Entertainment Centre in Melbourne, Australia and the second from the Yoygogi Olympic Pool in Tokyo, Japan. Each of these recordings contain most, if not all, of the performances from those nights. (The Japan soundboard is slightly incomplete, but the Sydney show is the full set.) Other than those two shows, and a few other soundboard recordings, there appear to be no other "non-audience" recordings from this tour, but part of me believes that there must be some pre-FM show(s) out there somewhere. If you have any information regarding pre-FM shows from this tour, please contact me at toprotectandserveall@gmail.com.

      Phil Collins But Seriously New York!:
      Pay-Per-View Cable TV Broadcast and KRQR Radio San Francisco, California FM Stereo Simulcast
      Recorded live at Madison Square Garden, New York - 2 October 1990
      Original Airdate - 2 October 1990
      FM Stereo Simulcast


      Simulcast across the U.S. on numerous FM radio stations on the final night of the BUT SERIOUSLY WORLD TOUR, this concert was simultaneously broadcast as a Pay-Per-View special. While there has been some confusion about the exact date of this concert, some believing it was actually 3 October 1990 in part because Phil's own website listed that date, it has been confirmed through multiple sources - of which I am one - that the exact show date was 2 October 1990. Partial confirmation came in the form of the notes I took on the night of the recording, which I dated as 2 October 1990. I wrote this date directly onto the VHS tape and audio cassette tapes which I used to capture the performance. In addition, I have attached a scan below of a Rolling Stone magazine article written about this exact show, and said article clearly states the date as 2 October. (The article itself is rather stained and torn, as I had it for many years hanging on my wall.) Unlike my lost NO JACKET REQUIRED... SOLD OUT HBO tapes, I still have the aforementioned cassette tapes and VHS tape copy of this show in my archives, which I recorded live as they were broadcast. (I capturd the FM simulcast of this show from my local radio station in Maryland, where I lived at the time, but for this listing I am referencing the KRQR station broadcast out of San Francisco as it is the clearest and best sounding of the available copies.) The entire concert was captured as it happened, warts and all, though few mistakes occurred. Phil and his "Ten Serious Guys and One Even More Serious Gal" as they were known on this tour really tore up the Garden that night (figuratively, not literally) and this recording showcases that. I feel that this performance far outshines the official release recorded in Berlin on this same tour. Highlights include the show opener Hand In Hand along with The West Side which features a smoldering drum solo, Colours with a drum duet featuring Phil and Chester Thompson, and the show's closing number Take Me Home, during which Phil is clearly emotional given that the tour has come to an end. This tour will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the first time I saw a Phil Collins concert in person, at The Capital Centre Arena in Landover, Maryland. (Check out the My Concerts page for a complete listing of all of my PC shows along with EVERY OTHER concert that I've ever attended.) A five-star tour and a five-star show both at The Capital Centre Arena and Madison Square Garden. (As a personal note: I was in my senior year of high school at the time of this concert, and after recording this concert on VHS tape, I would watch the opening number, Hand In Hand, EVERY SINGLE DAY before heading off to school. I did this for the remainder of my senior year, which lasted until June of 1991. This version of this song is just THAT GOOD!) Complete track listing HERE.


  • THE BOTH SIDES TOUR - April 1994 through May 1995


      Unlike the NO JACKET REQUIRED and BUT SERIOUSLY TOURS listed above, there does appear to be at least one pre-FM show from this tour, recorded at The Estadio River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 24 April 1995. Details on this recording are sketchy as I cannot find any information on which company (Westwood One, King Biscuit, etc.) recorded and produced the pre-FM discs, nor can I determine the original airdate for these discs. Some information on this show can be found HERE. As with other tours, there are numerous FM broadcasts or simulcasts from this tour in circulation, as listed on Simon's site. This was due in part to companies like Westwood One shifting from a pre-FM format of capturing the shows for later use, to an FM simulcast format of broadcasting the shows live in real time. Some of the FM simulcasts include concerts performed at The G-Mex Centre in Manchester, United Kingdom, Wembley Arena in London, and The Fukuoka Dome in Fukuoka, Japan. While no official VHS or DVD/Blu-ray release from this tour has ever materialized, there are a few Pro-Shot videos available in trading circles that captured complete performances. Interestingly, these Pro-Shot shows were recorded at the same venues as the FM simulcasts listed above with the exception of the Wembley show. Again, there appear to be no other pre-FM recordings from this tour, but part of me believes that there must be some other shows out there somewhere.

  • THE PHIL COLLINS BIG BAND TOUR - January 1996 through December 1996


      When Phil officially departed Genesis in 1996, the first thing he did professionally was to fulfill a life-long dream of performing in a big band jazz ensemble. So his put together some of the world's finest jazz musicians, reworked some of his best songs, and headed out on the road. As with the BOTH SIDES TOUR listed above, there does appear to be at least one pre-FM show from this tour, recorded at The Stavinski Auditorium in Montreux, Switzerland on 17 July 1996. Details on this recording are sketchy as I cannot find any information on which company (Westwood One, King Biscuit, etc.) recorded and produced the pre-FM discs, nor can I determine the original airdate for these discs. Some information on this show can be found HERE. Unlike other tours, there are no other FM broadcasts or simulcasts from this tour in circulation, but part of me believes that there must be some other shows out there somewhere. If you have any information regarding pre-FM shows from this tour, please contact me at toprotectandserveall@gmail.com.


  • THE DANCE INTO THE LIGHT TOUR - February 1997 through December 19997



      As with the NO JACKET REQUIRED TOUR listed above, I don't know of any pre-FM shows from this tour, and Simon's Movement site does not list any. In fact, there is only one FM broadcast listed there, recorded at Earls Court, London on 13 December 1997. There aren't even any other soundboard recordings from this tour in circulation as listed on Simon's site. It appears that the closest thing to a professional recording of a show from this tour is the official DVD release LIVE AND LOOSE IN PARIS, which captured a portion of the show from The Palais Omnisports de Bercy. (A scan of the DVD cover from my personal collection appears below.) Other than those two shows, there appear to be no other "non-audience" recordings from this tour, but part of me believes that there must be some pre-FM show(s) out there somewhere. If you have any information regarding pre-FM shows from this tour, please contact me at toprotectandserveall@gmail.com.


  • THE PHIL COLLINS BIG BAND TOUR (PART II) - June 1998 through December 1998


      After Phil completed his DANCE INTO THE LIGHT TOUR, he rejoined his Big Band mates and started back into the fray. This would be the tour that generated the official compact disc release A HOT NIGHT IN PARIS, and while the liner notes from that recording do not specifically list which shows the songs were taken from, the band did play three shows in France - one in Nice at the Nice Jazz Festival on 13 July 1998, one in Lyon at The Fourviere on 20 July 1998 and one at The Grand Rex Theatre in Paris on 21 July 1998. Given the title of the official release, it's s safe bet that most of the tracks were recorded at the 21 July show. As with the NO JACKET REQUIRED TOUR listed above, I don't know of any pre-FM shows from this tour, and Simon's Movement site does not list any. In fact, there is only one FM broadcast listed there, recorded at Symphony Hall, Birmingham, United Kingdom on 24 July 1998. There aren't even any other soundboard recordings from this tour in circulation as listed on Simon's site. Other than this show, and the official release, there appear to be no other "non-audience" recordings from this tour, but part of me believes that there must be some pre-FM show(s) out there somewhere. If you have any information regarding pre-FM shows from this tour, please contact me at toprotectandserveall@gmail.com.


  • THE TESTIFY TOUR - January 2002 through March 2003


      Westwood One Superstars Concert Series #SS08-23:
      Westwood One Radio Networks Records
      Recorded live at The La Scala Theatre, London - 6 November 2002
      Original Airdate - Weekend of 7/8 June 2008
      pre-FM Single Compact Disc


      Doug Ingold hosts an intimate performance at the very same theatre where Phil performed as a boy in The Beatles film A HARD DAY'S NIGHT. Taken from the BBC archives, the show contains ten songs from that night along with commercial spots. This appears to be the only pre-FM source from this tour. Incomplete capture. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.


  • THE FIRST FINAL FAREWELL TOUR - June 2003 through November 2005


      As with the NO JACKET REQUIRED TOUR listed above, I don't know of any pre-FM shows from this tour, and Simon's Movement site does not list any. There are several FM broadcasts listed there, and a few Pro-Shot videos as well. It appears that the closest thing to a professional recording of a show from this tour is the official DVD release FINALLY... THE FIRST FINAL FAREWELL TOUR, which captured the complete show from The Palais Omnisports de Bercy on 15 June 2004. (A scan of the DVD cover from my personal collection appears below.) Other than those shows, there appear to be no other "non-audience" recordings from this tour, but part of me believes that there must be some pre-FM show(s) out there somewhere. If you have any information regarding pre-FM shows from this tour, please contact me at toprotectandserveall@gmail.com.


  • THE GOING BACK TOUR - June 2010


      As with the NO JACKET REQUIRED TOUR listed above, I don't know of any pre-FM shows from this tour, and Simon's Movement site does not list any. In fact, there is only one FM broadcast listed there, (a very brief recording featuring only three songs) and a few Pro-Shot videos as well. It appears that the closest thing to a professional recording of a show from this tour is the official DVD release GOING BACK - LIVE AT THE ROSELAND BALLROOM, which captured the complete show from venue of the same name in New York City on 25 June 2010. Other than those shows, there appear to be no other "non-audience" recordings from this tour, but part of me believes that there must be some pre-FM show(s) out there somewhere.

      Phil Collins King Biscuit Flower Hour (Unknown show number):
      King Biscuit Radio Corporation Records
      Recorded live at an unknown venue on an unknown date
      Original Airdate - January 1996
      pre-FM Single Compact Disc


      This listing and the very next one are both interesting shows in that I do not possess either in my personal collection, therefore, the information posted here has been gathered from listings on eBay. The Sellers for both shows have not provided any show numbers, song titles or recording dates or venue information, but chances are that both were captured live at either Perkins Palace, The Tower Theatre or The Warner Theatre as those three shows were repackaged frequently by the Biscuit. The only known facts at this time are the artists and the airdate. For this specific listing, the seller mentioned only the following: "Phil Collins King Biscuit Flower Hour 01/1996 - 1 Disc Dir Broadcasting. Dan Neer Radio Producer And Host Presents Phil Collins Live In Concert." I am trying to gather more information from the Seller and will add same if it becomes available.

      Phil Collins King Biscuit Flower Hour (Unknown show number):
      King Biscuit Radio Corporation Records
      Recorded live at an unknown venue on an unknown date
      Original Airdate - Week of 5 January 1998

      As mentioned above, the Seller for this listing has also not provided any show number, song titles or recording date or venue information other than the original airdate. I am trying to gather more information from the Seller and will add same if it becomes available.


  • RADIO INTERVIEW SPECIALS - Various Dates

      Jim Ladd Hosts Innerview - Phil Collins:
      Inner View Records (Series #23, Show #7)
      Unknown recording date
      Original Airdate - Unknown Month/Day 1982
      pre-FM Single Vinyl LP


      Jim Ladd, who was also the host of the above listed Captured Live! #CL-1684 A-D concert radio program, hosts an interview special focusing on Phil's career and his latest (at that time) album HELLO, I MUST BE GOING. While the copyright on the LP states 1976 as seen in the scans below, this program was definitely produced in late 1982, as Ladd clearly focuses most of his questions on Side One about Phil's second album. (HELLO, I MUST BE GOING was released on 5 November 1982, therefore, this special could not have been recorded too far prior to that. In addition, Ladd hosted Innerview, an hour-long nationally syndicated interview program, from 1974 until 1984.) Phil is present in the room with Ladd, and the two have a lengthy conversation about the record, with details about several songs revealed. Side Two focuses on Phil's time with Genesis, and includes the most detailed explanation I've ever heard about the meaning behind the title of the song Abacab. Tracks include I Don't Care Anymore, Don't Let Him Steal Your Heart Away, In The Air Tonight, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, Follow You, Follow Me, Abacab and Misunderstanding. (As a side note, Jim Ladd served as the inspiration for the 2002 Tom Petty album THE LAST DJ and its title track, and - like Phil - has a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.) Great, rare item from my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      Phil Collins Interview Picture Disc:
      Baktabak Records (BAK 2020)
      Limited Edition Vinyl
      Recorded November 1982
      pre-FM Single Vinyl LP


      An unidentified interviewer meets with Phil and discusses his life, working with Robert Plant, Frida and Clapton, drumming and Phil's latest release HELLO, I MUST BE GOING. The basis for listing the recording date as sometime in November 1982 is based on two main statements on Side 1. The first is when Phil says: "I'm thirty-one now..." (having been born in January of 1951 puts the current year at 1982) and the second is when Phil says: "The album came in at number two today... It's the first week..." As mentioned above, HELLO, I MUST BE GOING was released on 5 November of 1982, therefore, this interview was likely recorded within a few weeks of its release. (Note that the image on Side 2 of the LP is clearly from later in Phil's career... possibly from the '85 NO JACKET REQUIRED Tour or the '86 INVISIBLE TOUCH Tour.) It's a fascinating interview with lots of material that focuses heavily on HELLO I MUST BE GOING. As with many of the Baktabak interviews, this recording starts and ends rather abruptly, especially at the end of Side 1, which cuts off in mid-question but does pick up in the same spot at the start of Side 2. From my personal collection. More info HERE.

      B.B.C. Rock Hour - Phil Collins:
      London Wavelength Records Show #349
      Unknown recording date
      Original Airdate - 5 December 1982

      Another interview special focusing on Phil's career and his second solo album HELLO, I MUST BE GOING. Host Richard Skinner interviews Phil and plays tracks from the album. Tracks include I Don't Care Anymore, Like China and Why Can't It Wait Till Morning. Great, rare item. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      Phil Collins & Steve Winwood Inside Track Interview Special:
      D.I.R. Broadcasting Records
      Unknown recording date
      Original Airdate - Week of 21 February 1983
      pre-FM Triple Vinyl LP (Side 6 is blank)


      Lisa Robinson meets with and chronicles the careers of Phil Collins and Steve Winwood separately and discusses their lives and music. The recording definitely sounds as if Robinson is in the same room at the same time with the artists. Phil discusses his time with Genesis, playing with Robert Plant, and his painful divorce - which led to his monumental first solo album, FACE VALUE. The show contains studio tracks from several of Phil's and Steve's albums including No Reply At All, In The Air Tonight and I Don't Care Anymore along with While You See A Chance, Arc Of A Diver and Gimmie Some Lovin'. There are no commercial blocks on these LPs. Phil's portion of the show is contained on Sides 1 & 2, while Winwood's interview takes up Sides 3-5. A rare and hard to find gem. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      Robert Plant & Phil Collins Inside Track Interview Special:
      D.I.R. Broadcasting Records
      Unknown recording date
      Original Airdate - August 1983
      pre-FM Triple Vinyl LP (Side 6 is blank)


      Lisa Robinson meets with and chronicles the careers of Phil Collins and Robert Plant separately and discusses their lives and music. Like the special listed above, this recording also sounds as if Robinson is in the same room at the same time with the artists. The show contains commercials and studio tracks from several of Phil's and Robert's albums including Like China, I Missed Again and a live version of No Reply At All along with The Song Remains The Same, Big Log and In The Mood. Phil's portion of the show is the last segment of the show on sides D and E. Side F is blank. A rare and hard to find gem. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE

      COLLINS ON COLLINS:
      Atlantic Records (ST-PR-759A/B-SP)
      Exclusive Candid Interview - Limited Edition Vinyl
      Recorded 1985
      pre-FM Single Vinyl LP


      An unidentified interviewer meets with Phil and discusses his time with Genesis, his first solo album FACE VALUE, and his latest release NO JACKET REQUIRED. The LP was sent to radio stations under the Atlantic Records label, which I suppose makes it an "official release" of sorts, and therefore it is not hard to come by. Many listings for this exact LP still show up on eBay on a regular basis. Side A of this recording features the interviewer asking questions and Phil answering them. Side B features the answers only, which allowed DJ's to create their own "live interview" as if Phil was right there with them in the studio. The answers on this recording were frequently and heavily reused on dozens of other interview specials, some of which are listed below. I cannot stress this part enough - a vast majority of the interview clips that appeared on future radio specials were taken DIRECTLY from this album. They were spliced into the shows in order to create the sense that Phil was in the room talking to the host. This LP does not contain any commercials or album tracks. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE.

      Similar to the above listed special from 1986 on the USPN Records label, but repackaged for broadcast to coincide with Phil's 1989 release BUT SERIOUSLY.... Like many other interview specials, the show also contains much of the same material featured in the COLLINS ON COLLINS LP, along with commercials and studio tracks from several of Phil's albums.

      pre-FM Single Compact Disc


      Dan Neer (interviewer) chronicles Phil's career and discusses his life, his music and his latest release BUT SERIOUSLY... Neer's voice is not present anywhere on the disc, but detailed questions are listed in the liner notes. (See the pics below for scans of the booklet inside and outside. Keep in mind that the booklet is a tri-fold insert, so when you look at the scans, you are looking at all three pages folded flat.) The disc is an official release from Atlantic Records for promotional use, and contains studio tracks from the listed album along with interview segments. Those tracks are Another Day In Paradise, Find A Way To My Heart, Something Happened On The Way To Heaven and I Wish It Would Rain Down. The next set of tracks (02-08) are radio promo spots and the remaining tracks (Track 09-19) contain the interview answers only, and are much more detailed than the profile on the first track. Coupled together, the entire set creates an intimate interview that radio station DJs used to promote the album and imply that Phil was actually sitting in the studio. Similar to the COLLINS ON COLLINS LP in that it contains an "Answers Only" selection of tracks. It also contains a "profile" track which has Phil speaking about making the album along with the aforementioned studio tracks. From my personal collection. Complete track listing HERE

Once again, Turner actually gets Phil into the studio and interviews him in person. The show contains commercials and studio tracks from several of Phil's albums including Survivors, Both Sides Of The Story and Another Day In Paradise along with a live version of I Can't Dance.

      Original Airdate - Week of 10 March 1997
      pre-FM Single Compact Disc


      Cat McEwen (I'm not sure about the spelling of the host as I cannot seem to find any information on her anywhere, and her name is not listed on the Cue Sheet, but she is not the usual Off The Record host, Mary Turner) chronicles Phil's life and his music, (in a rather pompous and overbearing fashion I might add - her "very proper British" accent sounds almost fake!) along with his latest release, DANCE INTO THE LIGHT, and his Big Band outings. Some bits sound as if Phil is in the studio with the host and others are clearly taken from the aforementioned COLLINS ON COLLINS LP. The show contains commercials and studio tracks from several of Phil's albums including Dance Into The Light, Take Me Down and The Times They Are A' Changing, along with Genesis classics such as Abacab, Follow You, Follow Me and Dancing With The Moonlit Knight.

      In The Studio with Redbeard:
      BeardedFISCH LLC
      Unknown recording dates
      Original Airdates - January 2015 - February 2016
      Internet Stream Captures


      Captured directly from nationally syndicated radio personality Redbeard's In The Studio website, host Redbeard interviews Phil in person on three separate occasions to discuss various aspects of his career. The first interview relates to the thirtieth anniversary of Phil's album NO JACKET REQUIRED, and was posted to Redbeard's website on 18 January 2015. The second interview centers on the 2016 reissue (and thirty-fifth anniversary) of Phil's first solo effort FACE VALUE, and was posted on 24 January 2016. The last interview deals with the 2016 reissue of Phil's second LP HELLO, I MUST BE GOING and was posted to the site on 21 February 2016. All three interview specials were ultimately made available to radio stations on compact disc for broadcast, and the interview segments clearly have sections where commercials and studio tracks were inserted. However, as I do not have these discs in my collection, I captured the audio from the website using the Goldwave Audio program. The interviews themselves are very detailed and extensive in terms of topics discussed. From my personal collection. You can listen to the interviews HERE.
