)4 * 10 '

By Susan Makuch
HIL COLLINS ambled onstage
Saturday night at Hill Auditorium
and sang a song called "I Don't Care
Anymore." After two hours of heart-
filled jamming, it was obvious that he
dared an awful lot about his audience.
He began by doing what he does
best-beating those drums. The dark
stage slowly illuminated to reveal
'tollins banging in synch with another
percussionist who took the reins when
Phil took to the stage.
Dressed in a double-breasted suit
Vomplete with high-top tennis shoes,
'Collins greeted the packed arena with a
glae that conveyed his mood-energetic
and delighted. Soon, after the finished
} the first number, Collins was joined by
the Pheonix Horns, those amazing
dudes from Earth, Wind & Fire.
~together Collins and the guys were able
to do some fanciful work on all of Phil's
standard tunes. Particularly good was
"Thunder and Lightning," from
Collins' first solo album, Face Value.
The Horns added a new dimension to
,this jazzy, upbeat number.
The surprising thing about this con-
cert was Collins himself. There was lit-
tle doubt that the music would be
good-just listening to his albums
would give one an inkling that he'd be
able to reproduce that enthusiasm in a
live performance. But it's the inbet-
ween stuff that makes or breaks a rock
show. Collins satisfied all 'when he
played Saturday night. Whether he was
jumping around during an instrumental

break or verbally teasing the audience,
Philkept everyone's attention.
At one point, while introducing "Thru
These Walls," from his new LP Hello, I
Must Be Going, Collins stripped to his
shirtsleeves and trousers and put on an
old terrycloth bathrobe. "This song is
dedicated to all you perverts out
there," he shouted. The crowd roared
and begged for more.
He went on to give the eager patrons
"a crash course in perversion," as he
termed it. This little sideshow con-
sisted of namely a ladies negligee (to
prance around in), a glass cup (to listen
to your neighbors with), and something
else that Phil wouldn't go into-except
for saying that maybe we'd have to
clear the first 10 rows or so for him to
really show us. Sitting casually on the
edge of the stage, Phil put his heart and
soul, into this new song.
It was the long-awaited for perfor-
mance of his hits that really impressed
the already-frenzied audience. "This is
a little number we composed on the
bus," Phil joked as he began "I Missed
Again" from Face Value. The accom-
paniment by the Pheonix Horns made
this rendition of the hit a bit more
funky and rhythmic than other versions
might seem. The Horns not only jazzed
up the musical notes, they did a fan-
tastic job at entertaining. They did, of
course, blow out some nasty jams, but
they also danced some Pip-like moves,
as well as doing a creditible job at back-
up vocals. Collins seemed to appreciate
their assistance also, considering he
waltzed over to them a few times to
show his affection.

Collins can't hurry love, Saturday night at Hill Auditorium.

The most successful numbers of the
evening, in terms of audience reaction,
had to be "In the Air Tonight," where
Collins received his first standing
ovation, and "You Can't Hurry Love,"
which had every person dancing in the
aisles. "In the Air Tonight" had Phil
doing his own drumming, something he
truly is a master at. He didn't hide
behind the drums for his current hit
single, however. He had too much to
put into this one-sunglasses, tam-
bourine and dancing feet. Although the
crowd liked this number the most, it
was perhaps just a little lakadasical. It
had a lot of power, but the charge just
seemed to be missing.
There was not a spark missing,
however, from either of Collins' two en-
cores. The first, which he totally let
loose on his drums, had everybody in
awe of his talent. The second encore
appearance was an unusual gospel
number that Collins did soulfully. The
folks at Hill Auditorium didn't want to
let him go, but as we all know, all good
things must come to an end.
