➦ Phil Collins: Face Value (1981) - CD releases


GENERAL NOTES

All songs written and composed by Phil Collins, except "Behind the Lines" and "Tomorrow Never Knows"

SHORT FACTS

Face Value on the CD was released by the three record labels:

  • Virgin Records (UK and Europe) (CD Reference: U.K. CDV2185)
  • Atlantic (USA, Canada) (CD Reference: US: 16029-2, Canada: CD 16029)
  • Warner/Atlantic (WEA) (rest of The World) (CD Reference: 299 143)

The first album releases on the CD appeared in 1983. The first release of this album on the CD was issued by Virgin Records in May, 1983. Followed years brought a many different re-pressings.

In the United States "Face Value" 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 a CD release from year 2003. It is Virgin Records picture disc release and I decided to added it, since it is a very interesting CD release.

I also decided add to the list a CD from 2012. This is a 24KT Gold Limited Edition CD (CD Reference: U.S: AFZ 084) 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. I also do not collect the remastered editions of the album.


SINGLES

Face Value album has never been promoted by the CD single. Originally the album was released on a vinyl, in 1981 and promoted by vinyl singles. Due to the high popularity of the song "In The Air Tonight" the record companies have decided to release long delayed CD single with remixes. Here is the entry for the In The Air Tonight CD single.
