As with Paul Weller most of Phil Collins covers are crap!! The originals of Groovy Kind O Love were made in 1965 by Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles (the best version) and Diane and Anita (must admit to never hearing this one). In 1966 the Mindbenders had a massive hit with it in England (have this - not bad) and Phil Collins version came out in 1988 for the film Buster. If you can get to hear the earlier copies they are much better!

Actually, I was led to believe that the original version of "A Groovy Kind Of Love" was recorded by the composer, Toni Wine (aka Carole Bayer Sager), and also released as a single in the US. Anyone shine some light on it?

Gene - according to my records Toni Wine wrote this record with Carole Bayer Sager (2 different people) but did not issue it as a single until 1971. Hope this helps

Is this the same Phil Collins (multi-millionaire!) who sang about the homeless(another day in paradise?), and then said he couldn't afford to live in England if Labour got into power.

I do believe the hypocritical tosser lives in Switzerland now.

Not really, to be honest - I'm just a fully qualified smartarse!!

BTW Johnny, you look more like Jason King these days - sure you're not his twin brother, Joe? (how many people have said "You must be Joe King" in passing, or not?)

He guested on a Lamont Dozier's 1991 album "Inside seduction" He plays drums on the album as well as co writing and background vocals on "The quiets to loud"track which is awful.Eric Clapton also plays guitar on what overall is a little lack luster lp
