Multi-track tapes

  • I'm going by memory here but I seem to recall back when there was discussion on the official Genesis forum about a potential archive series, we were told they had numerous recordings from every tour but nothing prior to Foxtrot.

  • Long ago, on some previous Genesis forum, we had compiled a wish list of shows to release based on what we knew existed. I don't know if anyone copied that list somehow but it would be interesting to see again.

  • Should be in the old forum archive I made available here shortly after this forum opened, you'll have to download it from mediafire do a text search once you have it.

    That rings on the hour

    Filling the streets

  • I would recommend that people do not confuse an ordinary stereo cassette, with a professional mobile recording, recorded onto multi track tapes.


    Wembley 1975, Hammersmith 1976, Paris 1977, Savoy 1981 etc are known multi track live tapes.

  • TGA - do you know what Multi Track tapes exist? I am guessing that they have 3 nights of Hanover from '92, Earls Court as well? All the 2007 shows? Some of the Australian shows from '86 etc.


    Anyone have a definitive list ?

  • I don’t think we will ever get a list.
    some shows are pretty much known for different reasons, but since they never realized the Board Tapes project, I assume we won’t get additional info that easily.
    also, times have changed. Physical discs may not be an option for such a project anymore.

    I don’t think anything will come anymore ...

    I agree, and it's a shame. I wonder if they ever did a feasibility study to show it wouldn't be worth it, or if they just decided it wasn't worth the effort. Either way, what a waste if no one ever gets to hear them.
