    Do we know where Thomas Schrage (original author) got the album credits from? are they written on any of the liner notes on any of the 284 releases? :)

    Also that link helped my fix a few mistakes i made transcribing from The Genesis Discography, and also helped my find the credits for 'In Limbo'. (I'll delete my other thread asking about that).

    I'm listening to music either written or produced by the great Alan Tarney of the Tarney Spencer Band. They got their start working other great musicians including James Taylor Move (late 60s), Kevin Peek, Terry Britten, Cliff Richard and The Shadows (Cliff Richard, Hank Marvin, Bruce Welch, John Farrar (!)). Alan Tarney and Trevor Spencer also worked with Olivia Newton-John, Chris Squire (!), Bonnie Tyler, Charlie Dore, New Seekers, Peter Doyle, and The Real Thing. They had a go at their own band "Trevor Spencer Band" which had three albums in late 70s. They never caught on so Alan Tarney went the Trevor Horn route and became a famous producer/songwriter. He was famous for writing/producing 80s Cliff Richard hits (We Don't Talk Anymore, A Little in Love), Leo Sayer (More Than I Can Say), Charlie Dore (Pilot of the Airwaves), A-Ha (Take on Me, Sun Always Shines on TV), etc.

    I subscribed as well. I am just chomping at the bit for anything by the band in a group or solo setting, so this is exciting. I am also ready to see Peter live for the first time in my life and am hoping he might actually do a Genesis song for the first time in forever, given Sting got him to sing "Moonlit Knight" intro. Maybe that and seeing Genesis' last gig ever gave him some sense of nostalgia.

    I'm looking to purchase both a physical copy of From Genesis to Revelation (FGTR) as well as a digital copy (if the digital version has either superior audio quality OR additional tracks not available on the physical version).

    1. which CD version of FGTR is the best sounding?

    2. which CD version of FGTR is the most complete (in terms of bonus tracks, alternate versions, b-sides, etc)

    3. can you get a digital version of FGTR for purchase? or at least streaming?

    4. if yes to #3, does the digital version have superior audio over the best sounding CD version?

    5. if yes to #3, does the digital version have tracks that cant be obatined on any of the CD versions?

    6. is there a list of every track that has ever appeared on any of these releases? like a "completionists guide to FGTR)?

    Hopefully this is my last post regarding FGTR! :S. I am a late bloomer when it comes to Genesis, and also a bit of a completionist when it comes to this band, so i want both a) the best sounding versions of every track; and b) ALL THE TRACKS!! Every last demo, alternate version, b-side etc. I know the Genesis box sets provide all of that in spades, but FGTR is a different beast, with discogs showing 284 different versions of this album (is that a record?)

    Does anyone know if there are actual writing credits for "From Genesis to Revelation" (FGTR) officially published anywhere? Wikipedia shows All songs written by Tony Banks, Peter Gabriel, Anthony Phillips, and Mike Rutherford, with a reference to Genesis – From Genesis To Revelation (1969, Vinyl) - Discogs for that info. However, the amazing "The Genesis Discography" by Scott McMahan (thank you Christian !!) has more detailed/specific credits for each song. Does anyone where Scott might have gotten that information? and/or has anyone seen these detailed credits in print anywhere (on an album or another website?) (Apologies if this is a duplicate thread).

    According to The Genesis Discography...

    Am I Very Wrong? Banks; Gabriel
    Fireside Song Banks; Phillips; Rutherford
    In Hiding Phillips; Gabriel
    In the Beginning Phillips; Gabriel
    In the Wilderness Banks; Gabriel; Phillips; Rutherford
    One Day Banks; Gabriel
    The Silent Sun Banks; Gabriel
    The Conqueror Banks; Gabriel
    The Serpent Banks; Gabriel
    Where the Sour Turns to Sweet Banks; Gabriel
    Window Phillips; Gabriel
    In Limbo Banks; Gabriel; Phillips; Rutherford; Silver

    thank you AnythingNow ! This is definitely worth having. And the author is from my home state of North Carolina! So that's cool. Wow. One has to go to the internet archive to find it. I'm keeping it for sure. I feel like I became a Genesis fan much too late. I missed all the great box sets for one. And most of the concerts.

    is there some sort of list of all tracks recorded by Genesis members from their earliest recording through Nursery Cryme. I'm looking to build a chronological play list from day one through Trespass and include everything done by the band members both together and separately. I could try to build one but wondered if one were readily available. Thanks.

    Sweet. Phret, right? It's a shame that my CD/DVD-Audio habits aren't showing in this. Makes it look like i dont listen to anything Genesis related. :) It's just that when i want to listen to Genesis, i want it at the highest quality possible so i always go for the CD/DVD-AUDIO discs in my car.

    Ahh! That was you. OK, i have the connection now. Maybe someone can put together a list of all the active "Genesis fan" sites/services and sort it all out for me.

    So let me say, your strategy was brilliant. At first, it seemed like you were just trolling us fans, but now i see your master plan. If Mike does go back and remaster/re-release Smallcreep's Day, we may have you to ultimately thank.

    Anyone going to the Arlington, VA show? I havent bought tickets yet as i'm not sure i can go yet (family stuff). but if i go, i'd love to meet up with some fans. How does this kind of show work? Do people show up early to get good seats? If so, how early can you show up (or need to show up)? Where are the best seats in a typical venue? And is it mostly a "sit and listen" show? or a "stand and jam" show? Any other tidbits, i'd appreciate. and if anyone knows anything about the venue and any places to stay overnight near by, that would be helpful as well.

    One cool aspect of streaming music is the statistics you can get about your listening habits. i've been on Spotify for a few years and also bought the premium Last.FM subscription. I have Last.FM "scrobbling" almost all my music service (e.g. Spotify, Windows Media Player, MusicBee, YouTube, etc.). I also have a account connected to my Last.FM/Spotify account. So with all that, i can pull up all sorts of cool reports about my listening habits and how they compare to others. Let me know if any of your also do this kind of stuff. Maybe we can share our stats with each other and see what the other enjoys listening to, without having to wait for someone to post it. Or we could post links to our stats in this forum.

    Here is my last month's stats (it doesnt include CD's i play in the car, of which i am playing quite many Genesis & Solo stuff) I "think" this link will work:

    Last week, i was listening to music written and produced by Guy Chambers which includes a LOT of early Robbie Williams, but also Melanie C, Jewel, Kylie Minogue and World Party.

    That, BTW, got me listening to (of all things) the works of the Spice Girls! Including all their solo stuff (just like Genesis, the Spice Girls have a complex discography of group and solo work that intertwine). I'm not ashamed to say it either. :)
