Philip Bailey & Phil Collins, Easy Lover [Single] (1985)
Somewhere in my record collection I have a copy of Philip Bailey’s “Chinese Wall” album, as produced by Phil Collins. Why wouldn’t I have this? Philip Bailey was part of Earth, Wind & Fire. And Phil Collins was part of Genesis. Both were great in the bands and on their own and then they teamed up for this thrilling album/single-collaboration. First up: Easy Lover is a monumental fucking banger. Don’t agree? See me after class! But here we have the extended mix and a b-side track from the parent-album. Actually, this single (exstended) version is NOT as good as the actual single. But it was there in a bin for a dollar ($1). What could I do? And why not? I had to have it. And now I do. End of.
