The upcoming BBC documentary ‘Together and Apart‘ will be paired with another film called ‘Sum of the Parts,’ set for release in November on DVD, to form a comprehensive history of Genesis.
Together, they trace the history of a band that not only survived but thrived through a number of lineup and stylistic changes.
The film package features input from Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford. Gabriel left in the mid ’70s; Hackett launched his solo career a couple years later.
"I think when we got it right," Gabriel said in a news release. "We had something that none of us could do on our own. And there were different musical histories merging together in a powerful way."
‘Sum of the Parts’ and ‘Together and Apart’ are both due on Nov. 17 via Eagle Vision. That’s just a few weeks after the 1982 concert movie ‘Three Sides Live‘ arrives on Blu-ray for the first time. A three-disc box set spanning the band’s entire career, ‘R-Kive,’ will be released on Sept. 29.
