Studio: Uni Dist Corp (music) Release Date: 11/02/2010

In support of the collection Going Back, Phil Collins celebrates the soul music of the 1960s in this three-night stand at New York's Roseland Ballroom. Early on in the 26-song set, he explains that the selections "were the backdrop of my life as a kid." In the liner notes, he goes into more detail, adding that Genesis "were most definitely not a covers band." For this date, the drummer-turned-front man performs with five backup singers and a 13-piece band, including Motown's famed Funk Brothers (Bob Babbitt, Eddie Willis, and Ray Monette) and Genesis players Brad Cole and Darryl Stuermer. As a vocalist, Collins has always had a subtle touch, but he's more of a pop singer than a soul man, which means that his tenor seems too light for a rough-and-tumble Temptations number like "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," though he offers a credible take on "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" (it helps that the musicians do a bang-up job in replicating the latter's slow-burn intro). At key moments, the singers, including three ladies clad in purple-sequin sheathes, join him at the front of the stage. If the ballads aren't bad, they put a bit of a damper on the dance-party vibe, though it's interesting to note that Stevie Wonder's "Blame It on the Sun" sounds a lot like a Genesis track when Collins puts his stamp on it (see "Follow You Follow Me"). Extra features include an interview with the artist and rehearsal footage with commentary. --Kathleen C. Fennessy --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Ce n'est pas que ce n'est pas bon, c'est plutôt que Phil s'est payé un trip de jouer ce qui lui plaisait et non ses grand succès. En résumé je suis déçu et s'il y aurait eu des préview de chaque chanson je ne l'aurait pas acheté.

HASH(0x994a4ac8) out of 5 stars Really, Phil? Really? Jan. 30 2011
By John K. Mixon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Ever since Phil's first solo album it was clear that he had been heavily influenced by Motown and Soul music. That and Phil's enormous stage presence were reasons why I was so excited to own this concert on Blu-Ray.

Perhaps I had my expectations too high.

Phil's stage presence was not even close to his best and his performance was remarkably sub-par.

The band backing him up were very talented but Phil's renditions of these classic Soul and Motown tunes did nothing to improve upon them.

It was almost as though Phil never rehearsed the set, as though he phoned in his performance. Ever see "Live Karaoke?" It's just like Karaoke but with a live band backing you up instead of music tracks. That's what this reminded me of.

I am a HUGE music lover with a great appreciation for Genesis and Phil Collins but this purchase will sit on the shelf and gather dust after my initial purchase.

I own over 150 Concert Videos and rate them honestly, even if I am fans of the artists.

HASH(0x994b4390) out of 5 stars In the words of Collins, this is 'a Phil Collins blu-ray with nothing but Motown and Soul music on it'. Nov. 14 2010
By Jeffrey A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Filmed in June 2010 at New York's famous Roseland Ballroom, this concert blu-ray captures Phil Collins taking his new album "Going Back" into the live arena. Backed by an 18-piece band, Phil Collins covers the soul and Motown classics that he loved as a teenager. This is not a concert of Phil Collins songs - he describes this production as "a Phil Collins blu-ray with nothing but Motown and Soul music on it".

'Going Back - Live at the Roseland Ballroom' is a real chance to get up close and personal with Phil Collins as he covers the greats including Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and William 'Smokey' Robinson.

If you enjoy Rod Stewart's Great American Songbook series, then you'll certainly love Phil Collins' "Going Back".

On this blu-ray, Phil Collins passionately recreates the soul and Motown classics that he listened to and loved since his early music days of being a drummer in his school band and subsequently joining the group Genesis in 1971.

In September 2010, Phil released the audio CD Going Back to complement this concert that took place in June 2010.

Phil Collins really put his heart and soul in his rendition of "Too Many Fish in the Sea".

"Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" and "The Tears of a Clown" brought out the best in the 'The Funk Brothers' and the rest of Phil Collins' band, including members from his old pop group Genesis.

I may be putting myself on a limb here, but Phil's lighter take on "The Tears of a Clown" is as good as William 'Smokey' Robinson himself! Funk Brothers', Bob Babbitt plays the bass line here. Babbit in fact, wrote and played the bass line for 'Smokey' Robinson 1967 original recording of "The Tears of a Clown"! So, crank up the volume and enjoy this Motown hit which Phil Collins describes as having 'one of the most fantastic bass lines in a pop song'.

"Papa was a Rollin' Stone" can only be seen as a great tribute to the songwriters Barrett Strong (rest his soul) and Norman Withfield.

"Uptight (Everything's Alright)" - will have you dancing your blues away!

With the last track "My Girl", the Roseland Ballroom turned into one big karaoke party, as Phil had everyone on their feet and singing. You'll be doing the same long after the credits are posted!

4.5 stars as 'a cover of soul and Motown Music'. Phil's 'blue-eyed soul' voice is too soft for some of the tracks.

5 Stars as 'A PHIL COLLINS BLU-RAY with nothing but Motown and Soul music on it'!
If you love Motown, Soul, The Funk Brothers, Genesis and, of course Phil Collins, then Phil Collins: Going Back - Live at the Roseland Ballroom NYC [Blu-ray] is a must have!

RECOMMENDED: You'll also enjoy listening to this cover of 60's music by former ABBA singer Agnetha Fältskog: My Colouring Book. Agnetha is my favorite female vocal!

Neil Diamond's new CD Dreams is also in keeping with this genre of retro covers.

By lou scrobogna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I have been listening to Phil Collins from the time he was the drummer for Brand X playing jazz rock fusion and released some really Good Albums over the years and one was Morrocan Roll also saw him Live with Genesis back in the 80's and again playing with Eric Clapton so had to get a copy of Going Back Live At Roseland Ballroom NYC 2010, a Well Recorded Blu Ray with a Good Picture & Sound and Talented Musicians but was disappointed with the live performance & was expecting a better show with more guitar bass drums and so on ... This Live concert is more like a motown top 10 o pop hits playing & singing 26 songs :Intro Signed Sealed , Delivered (I'M Yours) , Ain't Too Proud To Beg , Girl (Why You Wanna Make Me Blue) , Dancing in the Street , (Love is Like A)Heatwave , Papa was a Rollin' Stone , Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer , Jimmy Mack , You've Been Cheatin' , Do I Love You , Loving You is Sweeter Than Never , Going To A Go-Go , Blame it on The Sun , Ain't That Peculiar , Too Many Fish in The Sea , You've Really Got a Hold on Me , Something About You , The Tears of a Clown , Nowhere to Run , In My Lonely Room , Take Me in Your Arms Rock Me A Little While , UIptight (Everything is Alright) , Going Back , Talking About My Baby , You Can't Hurry Love and My Girl ... so if you're a Fan & into motown hits theres a good chance You'd like this Blu Ray concert in spite of the average performance .

HASH(0x994b46a8) out of 5 stars Looks great, sounds horrible! Feb. 8 2011
By Bruce Nazarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
As a Detroiter, and a musician/engineer/producer, I can tell you that this is a
beautiful video that is ABSOLUTELY DEVOID OF ITS MUSICAL SOUL!

This is no diss on the performers, who are brilliant and giving it their all, but
rather this is a HUGE indictment of the audio mix, which is absolutely HORRIBLE!

The ESSENCE of Motown is the rhythm section interplay, but you can barely hear
Eddie Willis and Ray Monette playing the Motown signature guitar parts!
A Motown song with out a backbeat guitar? UNTHINKABLE!

Phil is SO loud in the mix, there's no room for the background singers,
who are FABULOUS talents, or the horns who are trying their best!

PLEASE - Remix and remaster this disc - with all of the quality and fidelity available on Blu-ray,
this disc is only halfway there - visually great, but sonically WAY BELOW PAR!
