Genesis Live Box Set Details Revealed…


Following the reissue of the 14 Genesis studio albums on the stunning box sets 'Genesis 1976 – 1982', 'Genesis 1983 – 1998 in 2007' and 'Genesis 1970 – 1975' in 2008, on 14th September 2009 Virgin/EMI will release 'Genesis Live 1973-2007', a box-set gathering the four live albums recorded by the legendary British group from 1973 to 1992. Featuring brand new stereo mixes [excluding 'The Way We Walk', which has been re-sequenced to the original set list], the box set also includes the long-awaited release in stereo and 5.1 of Live At The Rainbow 1973 only available with this collection.

Genesis Live 1973 – 2007 is a sumptuously presented box-set that includes:

Genesis Live, the band's first Top Ten album in the UK, recorded in Leicester and Manchester and issued in 1973, and featuring the classic line-up of Tony Banks (keyboards), Phil Collins (drums, vocals), Peter Gabriel (vocals, flute), Steve Hackett (guitars) and Mike Rutherford (bass, guitars). Genesis Live, for this box-set release, has been extended to feature 5 bonus tracks recorded at The Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles on 24 January 1975 and the full album is also presented in 5.1 for the first time.

The double set Seconds Out, a Top 5 entry in 1977 that documented the group's Paris dates as a quartet with Collins on lead vocals following Gabriel's departure in 1975. The tour featured touring drummers Bill Bruford and Chester Thompson. Exclusively to this box-set, Seconds Out is presented in stereo and 5.1 versions.

Three Sides Live, a number 2 album in the UK in 1982, mostly showcasing the Banks-Collins-Rutherford incarnation augmented by Thompson and guitarist Daryl Stuermer.

The Way We Walk, finally sees these two live albums re-sequenced as per the original show's set list. Originally released separately and entitled 'Vol I: The Shorts', which made the Top 3 in Britain in 1992, and 'Vol 2: The Longs', this was the band's sixth number one album, and their only concert recording to top the charts in 1993.

Genesis Live 1973 – 2007 has been designed to incorporate space for the most recent live Genesis release; the 2-CD set Live Over Europe 2007. All albums feature brand new stereo mixes created by Tony Banks, Nick Davis and Mike Rutherford, whilst Genesis Live, Seconds Out and Live At The Rainbow 1973 all feature 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound versions.
