Serious Hits... Live!

1990

Instead of providing a live concert experience, they took the approach of putting a 'hits only' selection for the album. While the performances feature Collins' and his band at their best, the audio quality was sub-par for the CD version. The album has a very 'stadium crowd feel' quality that various other live albums from the early 90's had.

The live video and DVD version features one entire concert. The concert captures a live performance from Germany at the Waldbühne in Berlin, which Collins has hailed as his best performance due to the energy of the German people after the fall of the Berlin wall.

At this point in Collins' career, his vocal skills and band playing were probably at their best. The DVD presents an in-depth personal look at his solo concert experience. Special moments include the crowd not allowing the concert to continue with prolonged applause after 'Something Happened on the Way to Heaven' and the lighter vigil during 'One More Night'.
