Looks like Ant talked to someone who knew what he was talking about. Awesome interview - many thanks.

Don't think they will do a CD version of this. It looks more like "let's get this out in the simplest way", so why bother with the logistics of a CD release? Still a shame, but that's how it works these days. See also Other sides by Phil

The dividing line
tricky nevertheless, Congo, Not about us and Alien afternoon are also good!
thx for posting! Great article.
That really sounds like an interesting project.
Will this album also be sold in Europe?
About time to listen to that one again. I think I even have that on SACD somewhere....
Not sure about these "what's the best / worst album" questions.
If you forced everybody to make a list - best to worst - it still doesn't say #15 on the list is a bad album. I can find great moments on every album. Duke and Selling may be my favorites and for me more valuable than FGTR and CAS, but I still do like listening to those as well.
FGTR was a very naive album and has little to do with what was to come. So it may qualify to be their "worst"
No, Phil only took a break in 2017. He's playing in one go since Latin America.
.... where to start?
Never liked Happy The Man - then also Anything She Does is far from being a favorite of mine.
Basically, there a tracks from all albums that I dislike, but these are my "worst moments"
Battle Of Epping Forest
Harold The Barrel
Back In NYC
Trick Of The Tail
Match Of The Day
Scenes From A Night's Dream
Keep It Dark
Taking It All Too Hard
Since I Lost You
If That's What You Need
jus a selection ...
Enjoyable interview - and interesting questions. Thanks a lot!
Didn't know he was a fan of Johnny Cash
Thanks! Looking forward to it. Any idea when it will go online?
For me it’s one of the best tracks they have done as a trio. It probably is a bit too much soundwise, i.e. period piece, hence only 14 points
I listened to a lot of Genesis stuff the other day and one question appeared. How many different kind of song structures did they produce? Obviously, some pop songs all have more or less the same structure. But there are also some long songs, das follow the same pattern:
song part / instrumental / song part reprise:
Firth Of Fifth
Mad Man Moon
One For The Vine
Home By The Sea / Second Home By The Sea
There Must Be Some Other Way
Vocals all over, but more or less two song parts
Driving The Last Spike
One Man's Fool
starting with song part, ending with instrumental
The Cinema Show
do you find more categories, or more songs that fit in one of these categories?
About time ... I still don't understand why Mike didn't join Phil on stage back in 2004.
Nice to see how they seem to enjoy it!
My favorite album is "Beggar"
I also like "Rewired" - there are a couple of interesting tunes on that one, like "Falling" or "How Can I"
Then "Let Me Fly", cause I think they really had a lot of good quality tunes on this one.
"High Life" is my favorite, then "The Letter".
Third option was tough - in the end I picked "The Best Is Yet To Come".
"Wonder", "I'll Be There For You" and the title track would follow
Well, maybe I should give this one a second chance? Problem often is: How to access it in the right way. Any suggestions?
I will just mention that we got third row seats for this. Mike (hubby) thinks meet & greet is too expensive. I wonder why we had to book just under a year in advance? Seems far too excessive for me but there you are.
That happens quite often actually. I remember tickets for Collins in London 97 being available in Nov 96.
