The Genesis of the Seventies was a very different group from the Genesis of the Eighties and the Nineties - although not as different as some people would like to think.

Most of those who picked up on Genesis during the Eighties as their succession of hits encircled the globe had only the haziest idea of what had gone before. “In the later years there were people coming to our ... Read more in Amazon's Genesis Store

Product Description

Product Description

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 five 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 two 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Fool Me 22 Sep 2009
By Supertzar TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
OK, after the sound and fury about what might have been, what is the box actually like?

Well, first off, the packaging and box are good. There's a nice essay about the band live through the years, accompanied by broad brush comments from all but Peter Gabriel. Album graphics have been spruced up and are much more vivid than before. This particularly benefits Genesis Live, with the front cover coming alive - as much as any distant balcony shot of 3 blokes sitting down, their heads buried in their instruments while another bloke wanders around the stage with a red cardboard beak on can be said to come alive, that is.

Seconds Out is singled out for special treatment, with a gorgeous cardboard sleeve and mini booklet with the original close up shots that accompanied the lp. There's also a short essay on how fabulous, powerful, brilliant and exciting Al Murray finds the album. Thanks Al.

The sound quality improves on each disc largely in proportion with its age. So while The Way We Walk is little different to its original release quality, Genesis Live is far clearer and less echoey, with the faster passages on The Musical Box and The Knife sounding more alive and exciting. The extras tracks on Genesis Live are - mystifyingly - 5 out-of-sequence Lamb songs from concerts recorded two years later - all of which are already available on the Archive box set. The superb BBC and Belgian TV recordings from 1972 - as well as the Supper's Ready recorded at the same gigs - would have been far more appropriate - both to the musical era, as well as this listener's perception of value and rarity.

Aside from sound quality improvements and 5:1 mixes of 3 of the 5 albums, the main bonus of this set is the band's 1973 Rainbow gig.

3.0 out of 5 stars A failiure of the imganition... 8 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
It is, of course, entirely fair that musicians should follow their muses at the expense of fans' expectations. Resort to giving 'em what they want and the artistic spirit stultifies in a welter of focus groups. But when the artifact in question is a premium-priced box set of Genesis live albums (never the place for the casual fan to dip their toes in give-or-take a James Brown) it might be, for once, time to find out what would be happily acceptable to people who have already bought the albums thrice already (vinyl/hissy rushed CDs/remastered CDs). It appears that for this project the focus groups must have been cancelled after a nasty rail strike or swine flu scare...

After the exemplary reissue of the Gabriel era studio material - complete with hours of live TV footage, unreleased material etc - this seems to have disappointed the hardcore fans. Perhaps the best way to explain why is to list the obvious shortcomings:

Back in the day live albums were rarely able to contain whole concerts due to the time-limitations of vinyl. Now a double CD contains long enough for pretty much everyone bar Springsteen or the Grateful Dead to document the 'Go to Whoah' experience, complete with asides, links and the originally sequenced setlist.

They seem to have borne this kind of detail in mind with a chronologically resequenced 1992 live set and a formerly piecemeal 1973 Gabriel-era show. Elsewhere, though, the project reeks of missed opportunities. Their 1972 'Genesis Live' set exists as a complete show, but has not been fleshed out here. 1977's Seconds Out and 1982's Three Sides Live remain partial, non-chronological highlights of full shows, which are presumably gathering dust somewhere.

Only five tracks in total make their official debut on this box set.

5.0 out of 5 stars It IS alot of money, but... 8 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Basically, I think you should buy this because if you haven't heard 'Seconds out' on LP (vinyl), then you haven't lived. The CD version has always been (and still is) plain awful. The original LP release exhibited everything that was great about Phil Collins' drumming, in the context of Genesis too. I cannot stress enough, that if you like 70's Genesis, and haven't heard that LP version, then you MUST hear this new DVD version (with DTS), because it's simply the best of the best!

I NEVER get bored listening to this era Genesis, never, ever. So, to worry about what is, or isn't included in this boxset seems trivial. All the DVD versions sound great, and they bring to fruition what Genesis truly were - a fantastic band that sounded best, live! The 5 songs from 'The Lamb' are especially interesting, because, unlike the original album, they sound MORTAL.

It IS alot of money. It took me 2 years to decide. Now that I have it, I simply wonder WHY I delayed. 'Firth of fifth', 'The cinema show' and 'Los Endos' when sounding as they truly should, represent the very, very best of Genesis live. If you've not heard these properly, then I can't emphasise enough, YOU MUST! Utterly essential.

As a postscript, there is a danger that the 5.1 SURROUND SOUND again makes the music sound like easy listening. The reason it does this, is because it brings forward the bass primarily (the playing of which is fantastic, I should say), and as a result it 'smoothes' the sound somewhat. I don't have surround sound, and I hear the DVD's on headphones. It is on these that the balance is more towards the drums (thankfully). I'd hate for you to be mislead by my comments. It may be that the best experience is available only through headphones. Even so, it remains a fantastic experience.
