    You could say it marks the first time Genesis was affected by what's called "CD bloat" -- i.e., the tendency of artists to make (often pointlessly) longer albums once the CD format took prominence.

    Indeed

    At the time I wasn't sure if that was a good idea, but basically it also meant you got double albums on vinyl. Later, most artists returned to shorter albums. Bryan Adams even released an album with only 25 minuted ("Get Up"). Genesis themselves did another lengthy one with "Calling All Stations" ...

    So, this is "Bless me" - enhanced and restored music video. The track was a left-over from the She-album and then became the first single on "Propaganda Man"

    I also like this song a lot. The album is a mixed bag, but "Bless Me" is a good track!

    I liked the album more when it came out but now I somehow lost interest. That reminds me about the last few albums, that was a similar experience, whereas I still listen to Shrouded Horizon or Guitar Noir from time to time ....


    Enter The Ring came on random in my car yesterday.


    At first I thought it was a Yes track, then Jon Anderson solo. Eventually my brain told me it was one of Steve's new tracks - what a plonker I am!


    Enter the Ring


    And that track is still one of my favorites!

    I agree with you Ashley and last domino. When Clapton did a recent repackage campaign with his Unplugged, it included some extra tracks that were rehearsed plus the original showing and a rehearsal dvd. I know Clapton's Unplugged was much more popular than Phil's, but I still think it would be an interesting release. I'm just not convinced that Phil actually liked the performance. If anyone can prove me wrong, please do so. I think with "Fax Gate" just erupting, he seemed quite unhappy with the performances he gave for that show and is perhaps why he cut so many songs out of it. He apparently did a version that we know exists on the Both Sides Tour of I Don't Care Anymore like his Unplugged performance.


    One thing I will say Ashley, you got me thinking, if you watch Phil's Unplugged, when he begins West Side, the camera angle is screwy. Because Phil is looking happy and I think he is actually perhaps starting "Don't Call Me Ashley" and immediately, there is a new camera angle and Phil is not looking in the same direction. The other thing I suppose it could be is that I suppose he did two takes of West Side so it could be the beginning one and the continuation of the second take. Nevertheless, on the making of Phil's Unplugged, there is a small snippet of him rehearsing Don't Call Me Ashley and saying he can't hear and stops the song and starts again. I don't know if you have seen that, but it's pretty cool and I wish I could show but the clip seems to be gone from Youtube. I posted the two angles and how they are not spliced well at all from this youtube clip:

    Thanks for sharing this additional information.

    Would be pretty cool to have a full Unplugged Blu-ray some day. Unbelievable - that Unplugged thing was 30 years ago!
