P hil Collins’ dour world outlook started to creep into the band’s mix for Abacab, and “Man on the Corner” could be mistaken for a solo single at a glance. Look closer, and contributions from Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford give it enough Genesis flavor to draw it back to their own bosom. The flip side, “Submarine,” is an instrumental throwaway that primarily engages Banks as he constructs the kind of quiet, heroic music that would suit a soundtrack or a Tangerine Dream album from the late ‘70s. Historically, the band’s nonalbum flip sides are leftover ideas that lack polish, and that assessment suits "Submarine." The German single appears to feature a special mix of "Man on the Corner." Atlantic later reissued the A side for its Oldies Series along with the hit "Paperlate."
