Each album includes a corresponding DVD with film footage from the era and 2007 interviews with band members. Among the highlights are 1972 performance footage from Belgian TV and Rome's Piper Club, found on "Foxtrot," and 90 minutes of live video from 1973 on Italian TV and at Paris' Bataclan, found on "Selling England by the Pound."
Collectors will be thrilled with the disc "Extra Tracks 1970-1975," specifically four songs recorded in 1970 for a documentary about painter Mick Jackson that never materialized. "Provocation," "Frustration," "Manipulation" and "Resignation" pre-date Phil Collins' arrival in Genesis by a year and are all previously unreleased.
The rarities disc also boasts a demo of "Going Out To Get You," three tracks from the BBC show "Nightride" and the 7-inch single "Happy the Man."
Genesis toured last year with Collins for the first time since 1992. The worldwide trek grossed $109 million, according to Billboard Boxscore.
