Product Description

Product Description

Following the release of Genesis Live 1973-2007, a box-set gathering the live albums recorded by the legendary British group, with the added bonus of Live At The Rainbow 1973, and the critically-acclaimed hybrid CD/SACD and DVD double disc set reissue of the 14 Genesis studio albums on the box-sets Genesis 1976 – 1982 and Genesis 1983 – 1998 in 2007, and Genesis 1970 – 1975 in 2008, Virgin/EMI concludes its exhaustive rerelease programme of the Genesis catalogue with Genesis – The Movie Box.

The five DVD box-set, with new 2009 5.1 DTS and Dolby Digital sound mixes, makes available on DVD for the very first time The Mama Tour and Three Sides Live. The full box includes:

Three Sides Live--the concert film shot in the US and released in tandem with the live album of the same title, which charted in the top ten on both sides of the Atlantic in 1982. Contains extra full length tracks in 5.1 Audio only.

Genesis Live – The Mama Tour--filmed in 1984 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, and featuring the band performing material from the chart-topping Genesis album. Also featuring "The Making of The Mama Album" a home video filmed by Phil Collins during the making of the Genesis album.

Genesis Live At Wembley Stadium--shot during the group’s record-breaking run of four sold-out concerts in July 1987, at the height of their popularity following the release of the number one album Invisible Touch. The DVD also features the tour documentary entitled "Visible Touch".

Genesis: The Way We Walk – Live In Concert--filmed in 1992 at London’s Earls Court Exhibition Centre, and issued alongside the top three albums The Way We Walk Volume One: the Shorts and Volume Two: the Longs.

Bonus material alongside the Mama Documentary comes in the shape of the updated 2009 version of VH1 Behind The Music special about the band. The original version aired in December 1999.

The box-set is designed so that fans of the group can insert into the packaging the two concert discs from When In Rome 2007 as well as the attendant documentary Come Rain Or Shine disc, filmed during their recent reunion tour.

There's some really awesome performances in here. There's new to dvd releases alongside stuff they want you to buy again. And then there's some previously unreleased material in here too but, unfortunately, it's a major hit and miss affair. So, should you part with your hard earned and hand it over to the Banks, Collins, Rutherford & Gabriel retirement fund? I'll leave that decision up to you. I had the opportunity to purchase this box set during an Amazon sale for a nice price so I pounced. I was very interested in the new to dvd material, more on that later and while I'm at it apologies for the long review, there's a lot of content here.

If you don't own any of the three previously released live Genesis dvd's, here's where to get two of them (only one of which is still available new Live At Wembley Stadium [DVD] [2003]). The second previously issued title, "The Way We Walk" is no longer available outside this set and has been modified for this reissue (more details below). The third live dvd released, "Genesis - When in Rome - Live 2007 (3 DVDs)" is NOT included in this set but a slot and disc case have been included should you wish to place your Genesis live dvd's together in one box. All performances have newly mixed dts as well as Dolby surround soundtracks (except Live At Wembley, more on that below too). Going by the other Genesis box sets, which are awesome including the

Any ounce of material, visual, audio etc. do with Genesis, I must have! That's how big of a fan I am! And of course that included the Movie Box. However, my flaws with it are as such:

- Even though I already have the Invisible Touch tour, I was pleased to now include Three Sides Live, Mama + Way We Walk to my collection. (even though I HATE how 3SL is put together being only 70% of concert footage left to watch after continous interrupted interviews + of course we all hate how no futher material is included on the Touch tour as extras!)
- I adore the Rome DVD package and would hate to separate it from it's main contents!
- I had only discovered today that the Way We Walk DVD doesn't have any of the extra features the normal one has such as the interviews + camera angle options! Hate to say it, but that made me feel cheated!

The only one I'm 100% happy with is the Mama Tour as along with it's fantastic concert, it includes the amazingly rare home footage of the self titled album being made, recorded, etc. plus following the on site shots of their video singles!
Plus even though the VH1 documentary seems rushed (though that is VH1 for you!) I'm happy it includes an up to date version.

So only three stars representing the 3SL, Way We Walk & Mama concerts, along with the home footage.

ps. may I suggest replacing any of the already purchased DVD's in the Box with our own discovered rare Genesis material easily found on line?

So, the box is released, and it's out. So, is it as bad as we predicted?

Yes, unfortunately.

On the positive side, the 5.1 sound on TSL and Mama really rocks. But as expected, cutting in and out of interviews on TSL pretty much makes that release worthless, and some weird vocal overdubs on Phil's vocal on the Mama DVD doesn't help that release either. And don't even get me started on the video quality.

The IT DVD doesn't even play - what a joke. They re-release the DVD exactly similar to the old DVD, except the new one doesn't play.

TWWW DVD - doesn't really add anything to the old one, but at least now it's on one disc. Find the positive things where you can, eh?

Extras? Look that word up in the Genesis dictionary and you'll find it means 'foolish dreams'. The Behind The Music thing has a new chapter on the reunion tour (yawn) and instead some of the old parts have been reduced in length (lol). Give some, take some, indeed.

So basically, one star for the TSL audio extras, and another star for the MAMA audio, and then I'm almost subtracting a star for the incredibly poor value of this box.

I guess if you haven't got any of the old DVDs or VHS releases, it might be worth your money when it goes down in price. For oldtimers and dedicated fans (should there be any left - there seems to be a rapid runaway these days) it's just a rip-off.

Like the other box sets or just the individual SACD/DVD releases, I bought this for the 5.1 surround sound mixes to play on my new home cinema system. Now, we all know that Three Sides Live is more like a documentary and so songs are annoyingly interrupted; that In The Cage is missing from Live at Wembley; and that The Way We Walk is now just on one disc (I actually like that - I don't need multiple camera angles); and yes, that the huge original When in Rome DVD case doesn't fit in this smaller cube-like box even though it was never EVER meant to, so I won't comment on those.

I'll just go to the thing I was disappointed at the most. The 5.1 surround mix on The Way We Walk is awful. This was the one I was looking forward to the most as well. Yes, I bought the Live box set in which The Way We Walk doesn't have a 5.1 surround mix (Only Genesis Live, Seconds Out and the bosun disc have DVDs in 5.1) so I bought this box set as well (as was Genesis's plan). In the 5.1 mix, the satellite speakers just contain crowd noise and reverberation. That's it! It's actually quite annoying after a short while. I'm better off playing the stereo audio CD and letting my AV receiver interpolate to all five speakers. Ah yes, this is also true for the Live in Wembley, but I wasn't so bothered about that discs.

Okay, a live recording in 5.1 cannot be as good as a studio recording. There are only five speakers and there are only five people up on stage. You won't get the rich layers of sound as you do in a studio creation. Still, the Three Sides Live and Mama Tour 5.1 mixes sound not too shabby, and in the Live box set, Seconds Out sounds great in 5.1, so it can be done. So yes, very disappointed with the 5.1 mix of Way We Walk.

So, to the positives.
