Tony Banks: "A Chord Too Far" (4CD-Set)

Career spanning 4-disc set, CD & vinyl re-releases to follow

Tony Banks - A Chord Too FarTony Banks has always been in the background - compared to the commercial success of his Genesis band colleagues. His solo albums sales were always lower, he never had a real single hit on his own and he never went on tour on his own. One could argue that his solo career has probably never been promoted properly, on the other hand Tony never was a guy for the front of the stage. Now, a career spanning 4CD-set will be released on 6th July by Esoteric Records. It contains 49 tracks spanning all eras from the beginning in the 70ies with A Curious Feeling up to his latest album SIX. All tracks have been selected by Tony Banks himself. Such a compilation has been discussed frequently in recent years, but up until now such a project has not been realized.

The set is called A Chord Too Far and will be released on 6th July 2015. Tony Banks selected the following 49 tracks for this compilation:

The plan is to release two albums every few months. There is no information yet about whether or not the new editions will contain bonus tracks.
