Genesis Revisited II Full Album Stream – Muzu.tv:
The eagerly awaited album includes some of the most respected vocalists of our days in Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth), Simon Collins (Phil Collins’ son), Amanda Lehmann, Conrad Keely, Francis Dunnery, Neal Morse, John Wetton, Nad Sylvan and Nik Kershaw; Steve Rothery of Marillion and Roine Stolt of The Flower Kings and Transatlantic also join in to share guitar duties, while Jeremy Stacey and Gary O’Toole are amongst the chosen drummers.
The album will be available in different formats, including a limited edition 2CD Media-book, and a unique 4LP & 2CD version. It’s a project of Wagnerian proportions! Steve says. I’ve remained true to the spirit of the original songs, whilst changing and highlighting details. The vocalists all contribute their own character to the whole.
This time around, I’ve tried to satisfy what everyone wants, including myself – comments Hackett on his choice for the track list. Initially, I was thinking of just going for the best songs not featured on the first album. But then people thought I should do those tracks where the guitar was emphasized. So, I’ve done both. I’ve also included four songs with Genesis threads, most of which were written during the period and had a Genesis feel, such as the co-written ‘Shadow of the Hierophant’.
Steve will also be touring Genesis Revisited extensively across the world, with dates already announced in the UK and Germany, more to follow.
A VERY SPECIAL SHOW!
STEVE HACKETT has compiled on his tour a very special production and will bring them to Germany for six concerts! With this tour, the former member of Genesis will be perform the band’s repertoire exclusively from the 1971 list to the 1977 period for the first time and summarizes as well as songs that were co-written by Steve Hackett, including classics like ‘Supper’s Ready’, ‘Dancing with the Moonlit Knight’ and ‘The Musical Box’ . On tour Nad Sylvan will present on tour some songs as lead singer. These concerts will be an highlight event for every Genesis fan.
