    Phil stated that he wanted to freshen things up a little.

    I also believe Chester had taken some time out at this point to spend more time with his family.

    Did you type All of that out?

    Is there an online version of the book somewhere ?

    I am fortunate to own this book having purchased when it came out, but I do wonder why it was never re-printed again or made available for digital media.

    It would seem like a good seller, as there are many people who don't have this, or those like me, who would love a digital version.

    Will we ever see it?

    Wonder what the split was between PC and TB song rights?...hopefully Tony has got over his frustration at Phil being more popular and is laughing at his replenished bank account 🤣

    It was reported that Phils solo work was being shopped around for $200m dollars before this deal, according to BBC News.

    So Concord got a real bargain!

    I have to say I've never been hugely fond of the studio version of The Fountain Of Salmacis. I first heard it on Three Sides Live where it sounded terrific but when I finally heard the studio version it sounded bloody awful. Of course, John Anthony's muddy production didn't help but the drums sounded tubby, Gabriel's thick voice swallowed up everything in its path and the guitar solo didn't grab me the same way it did when I heard Daryl play it. My favourite version of the song remains the one from Dijon in 1978.

    I agree, a lot of the older genesis albums sound way inferior to the Live versions.

    TBH Phil Live was so much stronger than Peter on many Album songs.

    Interestingly, I just posted elsewhere a comment about whether they can get the audio decent enough from the last tour to ever release and Nick here says, it won't be good enough for release and also mentions that Phil sounded really bad in pre production and he didn't think it would actually happen.

    A real shame to see Phil struggling so much the last few years.
