Progrography

Phil Collins
From the murky swamps of legend came a will o' the wisp philled with musical possibilities. Refracted therein were childhood snapshots in the vicinity of the fab four, a manhood forged in the fires of the great Genesis, a brief love affair with fusion in the overlooked Brand X, a throne tentatively reclaimed and finally a wise lord emerges who wins the love of the people by his own hand. (It sounds better with a strange English accent, e.g., "with big, sharp pointy teeth" or however that goes.) All that by way of adding some magic to a discography in sore need of the stuff. "In The Air Tonight" boded (or is it foreboded?) well, suggesting Phil Collins might move in the same dark direction as Peter Gabriel. But it turned out the hot lights of the big stage suited him better, exemplified (at the height of BePhilmania) with his transoceanic flight for the Live Aid concerts. He is a classic overachiever (musician, singer, actor), blessed with an abundance of gifts, and one of the great romantic figures of our day.
