➦ Phil Collins: ...But Seriously (1989) - CD releases


GENERAL NOTES

SHORT FACTS

But Seriously on the CD was released by the three record labels:

  • Virgin Records (UK and Europe) (CD Reference: UK: CDV2620)
  • Atlantic (USA, Canada) (CD Reference: U.S: 82050-2, Canada: CD 82050)
  • Warner/Atlantic (WEA) (rest of The World) (CD Reference: 256984-2)

The CD has been released in the UK, United States and Europe in November, 1989."...But Seriously" is the fourth full-length studio album by Phil Collins, which was the best-selling album of 1990 in the UK.

In the United States "..But Seriously" has also been issued in a CD long box packaging. For more details, please click here.


PLEASE NOTE:

Occasionally I decided add to the list below the CD releases from year 2001 and 2003. These are Limited Collector's Edition French Warner Music (WEA) release and the UK Virgin Records picture disc release. I believe this is the only one ...But Seriously picture disc CD.

I also decided add to the list a CD from 2012. This is a 24KT Gold Limited Edition CD (CD Reference: U.S: AFZ 135) released in the United States by Audio Fidelity.

Further releases of this album after year 1999 are not presented. My collection of this album ends on the late 1990s releases.


SINGLES

...But Seriously was widely promoted by the CD and vinyl record singles. Originally the album was released to the market on the CD, vinyl record and the music cassette. For more information about the CD single releases, please click here.
