Three Sides Live, the concert film shot at the Nassau Coliseum and released in tandem with the live album of the same title, which made the Top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic in 1982. Contains extra full-length tracks in 5.1 Audio only. Available on DVD for the first time.

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 features The Making of the Mama Album, a home video filmed by Phil Collins during the making of the Genesis album. Available on DVD for the first time.

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 multi-platinum 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 albums Live–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 boxed 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.

Genesis have always been known for their sense of spectacle and their groundbreaking live shows, as much as their ambitious studio albums like the evergreen Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England By The Pound, and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Over the last four decades, the group has sold 150 million albums worldwide and has influenced the likes of Elbow, Flaming Lips, and Jeff Buckley. The Behind The Music special tells most of their story, from their beginnings at Charterhouse in 1967 to the emergence of the classic lineup of Tony Banks (keyboards), Phil Collins (drums, vocals), Peter Gabriel (vocals, flute), Steve Hackett (guitars), and Mike Rutherford (bass, guitars) in 1970.

Following Gabriel’s departure in the mid-’70s, Collins stepped up to the microphone and the group scored Top 5 albums with A Trick of The Tail and Wind And Wuthering. Hackett left in 1977 but the ‘remaining triumvirate’ went from strength to strength and had their first Top 20 album in the U.S. with . . . And Then There Were Three . . . the next year.

THE MOVIE BOX concentrates on the dazzling concerts given by Banks, Collins, and Rutherford, with the help of guitarist Daryl Stuermer and drummer Chester Thompson, throughout the ’80s and early ’90s. Genesis explored a simpler, more direct, approach to songwriting, and became mainstream stars with the acclaimed albums Duke and Abacab. The band also performed in arenas and stadiums without losing any of their sophistication and attention to detail. Former Stiltskin vocalist Ray Wilson replaced Collins for the album Calling All Stations in 1997, the closing chapter in the Behind The Music special.

Genesis went on a ten-year hiatus and made a stunning return to the live arena in 2007 for a series of European and North American dates, including the landmark free concert they gave at the Circo Massimo in Rome, in front of 500,000 spectators. Filmed at the event, When In Rome 2007 subsequently topped the DVD charts in the U.K. last year.

Three Sides Live has previously been issued on VHS and laserdisc but looks and sounds amazing in 5.1 DTS and Dolby Digital sound. Filmed in 1981 at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island and the Savoy Theater in New York City, it features many of the best songs from Duke and Abacab, including the hits “Turn It On Again” and “Abacab,” as well as “Duchess,” “Misunderstanding,” “No Reply At All,” and “Man On The Corner.” The “In The Cage” medley incorporates “The Colony Of Slippermen,” another of the stand-out tracks from The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, and ”The Cinema Show” from the album Selling England By The Pound. This is the first time that Three Sides Live has been made available on DVD and the only version available in 5.1 DTS and Dolby Digital sound. This edition features seven full-length audio only tracks in 5.1 including “Fountain of Salmacis” and “Follow You, Follow Me” which are not part of the visual concert.

Genesis Live–The Mama Tour captures the group on stage at Birmingham’s NEC and was first released on video in 1984. Directed by James Yukich, it includes all the singles from the Genesis album, namely “Mama,” “That’s All,” and “Illegal Alien,” along with the “Home By The Sea”/“Second Home By The Sea” suite. The “Turn It On Again” medley sees Banks, Collins, and Rutherford reference several of their favorite ’60s songs by Solomon Burke, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Kinks, The Animals, The Who, and Wilson Pickett. Extra includes The Making of the Mama Album, a home movie filmed by Phil Collins during the making of the Genesis album. Genesis Live–The Mama Tour is issued here on DVD for the very first time.

Genesis Live At Wembley Stadium was known as The Invisible Touch Tour when it originally came out on video in 1988. Again directed by Yukich, it features the band during their unprecedented and unmatched run of four sold-out dates at the home of English football in July 1987. Highlights include versions of the hits “Invisible Touch,” “Land Of Confusion,” “Tonight, Tonight, Tonight,” and “Throwing It All Away,” as well as the tour de force “Domino” and the instrumental “The Brazilian,” all from the Invisible Touch album, and Collins and Thompson’s “Drum Duet.” “Los Endos,” originally the closing track on A Trick Of The Tail, remains a popular live number, while this time the “Turn It On Again” medley incorporates hits by the Four Tops and The Righteous Brothers. The DVD will feature the tour documentary–Visible Touch.

Genesis: The Way We Walk–Live In Concert was filmed at London’s Earls Court in November 1992 and issued on VHS the following year. It appeared on DVD in 2002 but again looks and sounds startling in 5.1 DTS and Dolby Digital sound. The set list highlights the then current We Can’t Dance album and includes the hits “No Son Of Mine,” “I Can’t Dance,” “Hold On My Heart,” and “Jesus He Knows Me” along with the extended pieces “Driving The Last Spike,” “Fading Lights,” and “Dreaming While You Sleep.” The “Old Medley” takes in “The Musical Box,” “I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe),” their 1974 debut hit “Firth Of Fifth,” “Dance On A Volcano,” “Follow You, Follow Me,” and more.

The new updated 2009 version of VH1 Behind The Music special spans the first 32 years of the group’s career and features excerpts of many of the aforementioned tracks, along with early favorites like “The Knife,” “Return Of The Giant Hogweed,” “Watcher Of The Skies,” and “Supper’s Ready,” curios such as “In The Beginning,” “The Silent Sun,” and “Twilight Alehouse” and also covers the solo careers of Banks and Collins, Rutherford’s work with Mike & The Mechanics, as well as Wilson’s tenure, including the “Congo,” “Shipwrecked,” and “Not About Us” singles he recorded with the band.

GENESIS: THE MOVIE BOX offers a different perspective on one of Britain’s best loved groups and reminds the viewer and listener of the pioneering work they did in the live arena. Over the last three decades, their visual presentations and stunning light shows have transcended the limitations of stadium rock and confirmed their status as world ambassadors of British music.
