Sorry Genesis - But this time I can't defend you
, 4 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Live 1973 - 2007 (Audio CDs and NTSC format DVD) (Audio CD)
I ordered this box with as much excitement and anticipation as I had with the studio box sets. Since then I have discovered that Three Sides Live and The Way We Walk are only stereo versions only (not 5.1) They are not being released on hybrid SACD. The extra live material has already been heard on the previous archive box sets, even though there must be countless other live recordings available.
I was almost appeased when it was announced that a Live DVD box would be available including 3 Sides Live in 5.1 and The Mama Tour. However, I have found out since that The Way We Walk and The Invisible Touch Tour DVDs will be exactly the same as those currently available. Three Sides Live will be cut in the original VHS format with fake 5.1 surround in places as the original tapes are lost (including the In The Cage medley).
This truly is a poor effort. I have cancelled my order.
I am a Genesis fan but I'm not stupid.
