Rendition of the classic originally sung by Judy Garland in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz (often referred to as “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”).

About Face Value

Phil Collins’ debut solo album, Face Value, was released in 1981, following his departure from the progressive rock band Genesis. The album features a mix of styles, including pop, rock, and soul, with themes of heartbreak, loss, and betrayal woven throughout the songs. The lead single “In the Air Tonight” became a smash hit, thanks in part to its haunting drum beat and Collins’ powerful vocals. Other standout tracks include the upbeat “I Missed Again” and the emotional ballad “If Leaving Me Is Easy.”

Many of the songs on the album were written in the aftermath of Collins’ painful divorce, and his raw emotions are evident in the lyrics and his delivery. The album has been praised for its honesty and vulnerability, and it helped establish Collins as a solo artist and a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. Face Value remains a classic album and a must-listen for fans of Collins and 80s pop-rock.
