Co-produced by Hugh Padgham, Phil Collins’ first departure from prog rock band Genesis was received with great critical acclaim achieving No. 1 status in the UK album charts, No. 2 in Germany and Australia and No. 7 in US Billboard 200 charts.
“In The Air Tonight” was the lead single, released on the 5th January 1981, and has held its own ever since, proving just how popular a track it is over and over again with different generations.
Face Value also includes singles “I Missed Again” & “If Leaving Me Is Easy” as well as a cover of The Beatles “Tomorrow Never Knows” leading into an unlisted 30 second rendition of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”.
