GENESIS ANNOUNCES MAJOR GROUP AND SOLO RETROSPECTIVE

Coming on September 22nd is the latest Genesis retrospective, titled R-Kive. The 42-year, 37-track set differs from every other Genesis collection in that it features healthy does of solo tracks from the members of the band's classic lineup: Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, and Steve Hackett. The album -- which ignores the band’s debut album, 1969’s From Genesis To Revelation -- begins with “The Knife” from 1970’s Trespass featuring co-founder Anthony Phillips -- whose solo work is not on the new set.

Highlights on the collection include Peter Gabriel’s “Solsbury Hill,” and “Biko”’ Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight,” his duet with Phillip Bailey on “Easy Lover,” alongside Mike Rutherford’s Mike + The Mechanics’ “Silent Running” and “The Living Years.” Although Tony Banks and Steve Hackett’s outside work is equally represented, the closest thing each member had to a hit -- Banks’ 1983 “This Is Love” and Hackett’s 1986 “When The Heart Rules The Mind” with GTR featuring Yes’ Steve Howe, are both missing.
