Genesis – The Video Show

The Video Show finally saw the DVD release of the Genesis promotional videos with the 1976 to 1987 Music video’s being previously released on two different VHS releases called Videos 1 and Videos 2 during 1988.

In 2004 the 1991 We Cant Dance and the 1997 Calling All Stations album music videos were added along with the 1976 to 1987 era videos to this DVD release… additionally was the 1999 Carpet Crawlers remix music video.

Although the cover and sleeve say “The Video Show”, the introduction to the DVD menu says “The Cinema Show: A Video Anthology”, indicating that the name was changed after the DVD was finalised.

All the tracks have had their audio replaced with the new 5.1 Surround Sound and Stereo Remixes which are different to those that appear on the SACD/DVD Re-releases. Because of this, some of the videos are missing their original sound effects heard during songs like “Land of Confusion” and “I Can’t Dance”.

The Surround sound mixes are brilliant sadly the image quality of music videos is not Hi definition, bizarrely in the music videos added to the albums in the SACD/DVD releases the music videos look slightly remastered.

Finally being released on the 29th November 2004

The Carpet Crawlers 1999 Surround sound had to be faked using pro audio equipment because Genesis/Nick Davis didnt have access to a Multitrack tape.

Paperlate is from a Top Of The Pops appearance.

Many Too Many is not the version from Knebworth that some people know from the BBC Nationwide documentary, but its the version from Merriweather Post Pavillion and was filmed during the 1978 And Then There Were Three tour of America.

Long time Guitar Technician and Studio staff member Dale Newman appears twice in the music video Illegal Alien.

I Know What I like was going to be added made up of a mixture of the 1973 Shepperton Studios performance but this was abandoned.

Production info:

DVD9 / Dolby AC3 Stereo DTS 5.1 surround and Dolby 5.1 surround

Approx total running time = 2 hrs 36 mins
