    5 CD Boxset of the BBC recordings coming in March

    For those who may be interested. All of it was already available on various bootlegs. As usual with Genesis official releases, they are not releasing full performances, just partial shows.

    I'll probably pass on this, as I have all of it, in more complete forms.

    I may grab it, I'm not sure. The Gabriel-era stuff has been available officially for years. Not sure if I like different shows splashed together like that - the Duke tour stuff should have its own discs, etc. I may still get it, I love genesis.

      Yes, the material is organized in a strange way. Anyway, I love Genesis but the way the band releases its live stuff is always a bit frustrating. They never released a full show, except the 2007 tour. Otherwise, it's always partial shows, compilations, etc.

        Yeah, they could 'give a little more' to the fans, I suppose. You get the feeling that Genesis were like "aww, you don't really want to hear all that stuff, whole shows and rare stuff" but fans are "well, yes we do!". The Ray Wilson era stuff tacked on the end of a disc seems lazy. Was there a whole BBC thing of that and they only used two songs? Strange. Maybe I partially haven't forgiven them for giving up after The Calling All Stations tour and not creating any new music of some sort since then. There are fans who will buy whole shows.

          I remember reading an interview of Tony Banks about that subject. He said that he didn't see the point in releasing music from their stash of tapes because "the fans already have it on bootlegs anyway". He's not wrong. I mean, I must have at least 7 great soundboard/FM complete shows from the Wind and Wuthering tour. I also have great recordings from pretty much all their tours after 1972. I think some of these recordings were actually leaked from the band's tape archives.

          The only things I'd really like to hear are good quality recordings from their earliest shows with Collins and Hackett and maybe a full soundboard from the Mama tour.
