As a drummer and producer on John Martyn's Glorious Fool album imho, the drumming is as usual top notch, covering different styles and genres but the production is outstanding and undarrated.

I heard one a long time ago, can't remember the artist, but it's called The Quiet's Too Loud.

Check out the video on this one-IMO although the verses section of the song arent' that exciting, the refrain Phil sings is amazing!

I like your Frida and PG choices. I also love his drumming on Mike Oldfield's Taurus I from the QE2 album. cool

Intruder is quite important. I seem to have read, that this particular drum sound, called gated drums, for which Phil Collins and Genesis became famous in later years, was used there for the first time using a production - idea of Phil Collins and Hugh Padgham.

Actually I think Peter must be credited with the idea too, he specifically said no metal, as usual, in Phil's words, he knew exactly what he wanted but not how to get it. Enter Phil, who actually did great things with that sound....

As far as the "gated drum" thing goes, Hugh Padgham is the one who came up with the idea. Phil and Peter may have been there when it was created, but it was solely Hugh that thought it up and put it together.


I don't know about "best" performance, but a particular one I really like quite a lot is Phil's drumming on Mike Oldfield's "Sheba".

My favorite thing PC did that was not on his own albums was the two CDs he produced with Eric Clapton. Clapton is one of the best guitarists ever and Phil my favorite drummer. Their collaboration was magic. White Room from the subsequent tour gives me chills every time I hear it. Greg Philinganes and Nathan East were great too. This group of musicians sounded outstanding together!

Same here. I have always loved that track from Cream`s Wheels of Fire - album. But that live version is really a killer.

That EC band was a great line up. I remember seeing a concert of theirs on TV and they even let PC sing In The Air Tonight. cool

It is a shame that such a great tour was so short, but when you think about it, it is a miracle that PC had time to go out on the road at all, considering his schedule at the time. He had just finished up the Invisible Touch album, Recorded August with the group we are talking about, produced or collaborated with a score of others including: Tina Turner, Philip Bailey, Paul McCartney, Howard Jones etc., and had a year long Genesis tour looming in the near future and still found a month or two to hit the road with the Clapton band. Incredible! I only wish that there would have been an official live album, considering the strength of the material. The 24 nights CD that came out a couple of years later was good, but not quite as strong, IMO. But for those of you who haven't heard this tour, the Minnesota Nights boot is quite good.

Maybe not his best guest slot, but I do enjoy his drumming on Tears For Fears' "Woman in Chains."

Great choice.I love that song.

I seem to remember that Tears for Fears said to Phil 'Its going to take some time to get the drums recorded' to which Phil replied 'I will have the drums done in about 2hrs!'
Tears for Fears said 'No we cant believe you can record them that quickly'.....but he did and they were amazed and impressed by Phils proficiency.....

Ok so not strictly speaking a guest as such,as he was a core member of the band but Phil's drumming on the early Brand X records was in my opinion some of the best work he has done. His drumming particularly on the Moroccan Roll album was fantastic and his work with messrs Lumley,Jones,Goodsall and brilliant percussionist Morris Pert is so often overlooked. Not everyones cup of tea the early Brand X stuff.Experimental,an often raw fusion of jazz and rock but definately my thing and Moroccan Roll stands out as one of my all time favourite albums. The later Brand X stuff,once Phil had left, gradually became rather more bland in my opinion and too polished.The early days with Phil were much more raw and experimental.
