5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, 15 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Genesis 1970-1975 (Audio CD)
I have to say that this box set was a joy to behold. Not only was the re-mastered music absolutely fantastic, but also the added visuals were a delight. It does beg the question, where have they been hiding these films all these years? OK, so one or two of them are looking a little bit flaky with age, but isn't that the effect ageing has? How does the DVD of the early seventies 'Yessongs' look in 2008, after all? And where else will you see such fantastic material anyway?

Moreover, what these sounds and visuals show to me is that in losing Gabriel and Hackett (the latter has been criminally underated for decades in this listener's view) the band lost not merely two members, but two fifths of their very creativity, and were never the same again. Sure, Collins managed to turn Genesis into a mega-selling pop group, but could you find anything as good as (e.g.) 'Dancing With the Moonlit Night' on Abacab? I think not. Anyway, it's an investment, but it's worth every penny. Treat yourself for Christmas. Go for it now.

So totally true on all counts!

You might not find something as good as Dancing With The Moonlit Knight - as the correct title is - on Abacab, but you don't have to step further away than Duke to find songs there are up there with it (Behind The Lines, Duchess, Duke's Travels / Duke's End). That's not to discredit the Gabriel era Genesis, but comparing the two ages a bit like comparing apples and oranges - you may prefer one to the other, but saying that one is better than the other doesn't make sense - it's simply a matter of taste.
