Product Description

This Video Show DVD traces the band's history during the height of their popularity with Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, and Tony Banks as the main force behind their success. Peter Gabriel appears in a 1999 version of "The Carpet Crawlers." The DVD features classic MTV staples like "Land of Confusion," "Invisible Touch," and "I Can't Dance." Now visually digitally remastered, this is the first time all of the Genesis promotional videos have become available on DVD. In addition, rare BBC footage of "Paperlate" is included. Track Listings: No Son of Mine, I Can't Dance, Hold On My Heart, Jesus He Knows Me, Tell Me Why, Invisible Touch, Throwing It All Away, Land of Confusion, Tonight Tonight Tonight, Anything, She Does, In Too Deep, That's All, Mama, Illegal Alien, Home By the Sea/Second Home By the Sea, Paperlate, Abacab, Keep it Dark, No Reply at All, Man on the Corner, Turn It On Again, Duchess, Misunderstanding, Follow You Follow Me, Many Too Many, A Trick of the Tail, Ripples, Robbery, Assualt, and Battery, Congo, Shipwrecked, Not About Us, Carpet Crawlers 1999,


Once the early '80s ushered in the video age in earnest, few artists embraced the medium as willingly, or effectively, as Genesis. In fact, Genesis - The Video Show, a collection of 32 of the veteran British group's videos, includes more than a few items that pre-date MTV by several years, making this the comprehensive record of Genesis' post-Peter Gabriel era. There are all kinds of videos here, both black & white and color, somber ("No Son of Mine") and silly ("I Can't Dance"), topical ("Tell Me Why") and romantic, some with storylines and many that are simulated (i.e., lip-synced) performances, from both onstage and elsewhere. Song-wise, the best tend to be the hits, like "Misunderstanding," "Paperlate" (taken from England's "Top of the Pops" TV show), "That's All," and "Invisible Touch" (one of no less than six tracks taken from the 1986 album of the same name), although the '70s material, particularly from A Trick of the Tail (when the group was a foursome, with guitarist Steve Hackett), is also strong. On the other hand, the lesser-known tunes yield some of the better videos, including "Land of Confusion" (with its bizarre puppet versions of Genesis members Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, and Tony Banks, not to mention Ronald and Nancy Reagan) and others ("Illegal Alien," "Jesus He Knows Me") that give Collins, a pretty fair actor, an opportunity for some full-on mugging. Granted, there isn't a lot of ground broken here; for the most part, Genesis has been a solid, journeyman band, and Genesis - The Video Show reflects that. But the 5.1 Surround Sound is excellent, there are full writing and production credits for every song and video, the packaging is classy… founding member Gabriel even turns up on a 1999 version of "The Carpet Crawlers," perhaps the most imaginative video of the bunch. If you're a Genesis fan, this has to be the motherlode. --Sam Graham

Customer Reviews

Genesis The Video Show is a good document of a once great band.
The very first thing that you should be amazed at is the extraordinary sound that this DVD has for its mixes in DTS and Dolby 5.1.
Let me just start off by saying that if you're a Genesis fan you MUST buy this!

If you were an avid watcher of MTV back in the '80s when it was still 'music television', there was no way to escape watching at least one, two or more Genesis videos during the day. The band was riding high during their second wave of success (post-Peter Gabriel) and they embraced making music videos wholeheartedly.

With MTV and VH1 now seeming to show less music and more 'trash' (reviewers opinion), the "Genesis Video Show" DVD is a huge welcome treat and is a must for the avid Genesis fan.

The collection spans the years 1976 to 1997 and includes every music video the band ever made during their career. It also shows the many sides to the band's personalities displaying humor (as with "Illegal Alien", "Invisible Touch", "Jesus He Knows Me", "I Can't Dance", "Anything She Does" and "Land Of Confusion"), intimacy ("Hold On My Heart", "Follow You Follow Me"), seriousness ("Mama", "No Son Of Mine", "Tonight Tonight Tonight") and pure musicianship ("Abacab", "Ripples", "Home By The Sea").

The sound and picture quality of the DVD is amazing bringing out the music in a stunning new mix (courtesy of long-time producer Nick Davis) with crystal clear images. There are also individual credits for each video that can be displayed by hitting the start button on your DVD remote before the actual video begins.

While the "Genesis Video Show" is a near perfect display of all the Genesis videos, there are a few downsides to the collection. First of all, the band's early days with Peter Gabriel are sadly underrepresented on this DVD - the 1999 version of "Carpet Crawlers" being the only Gabriel track here.

For anyone who is a fan of the group Genesis. I just got their DVD called "The Video Show" and all I can say is WOW! 32 of their videos!!! Everything from 1976 to 1999! I never realized how many of these videos I had either not seen or have only seen once or twice in my life. Back when MTV played videos I remember seeing the videos for "I Can't Dance", "Invisible Touch", "Land Of Confusion" and "That's All" a lot! Then years ago I had VH1 Classics and they played the videos like "No Son Of Mine", "Hold On My Heart", "Jesus He Knows Me", "Throwing It All Away", "In Too Deep", "Illegal Alien", "Abacab", and "Mama" a good bit. They would throw in "live" version of "Turn It On Again" from the "3 Sides Live" album. But I had never seen the real video for "Turn It On Again"!

This is an A+ set for anyone who likes Genesis. The sound quality is out of this world! The picture is clear and crisp.

What the Editorial Reviewer fails to mention is that the audio on each song has been re-mixed from the original multi-track recordings and is in DTS 5.1 for those that have DTS equiptment. The surround mixes are outstanding. The video's are as they were when they first came out, no issues there. What blew my mind the most was Home By The Sea & 2nd HBTS. WOW! Since the original 'Genesis' self titled album has always sounded so dull to me, this was a amazing change in sound.

Now, if they could just get the SACD's out they've been re-mixing, and promissing!

As a lifelong fan of Genesis, it was always a treat to see their videos played on MTV, which wasn't too rare an occurrence in the 80's-early 90's. But the videos that are most memorable to both myself and the more casual fan are the outlandish puppet-Reagan bashing of "Land of Confusion" and several varieties of the 'let's make a video about making a video starring Phil Collins' variety, e.g. "Invisible Touch" and "I Can't Dance". These videos, along with the sublimely dark atmospheres of "Mama" and "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" are among the most popular of Genesis' video career.

Where this collection shines is giving us the more rarely-seen and unique vids from the past. Some shining examples: the humorous band-interplay (esp. between Steve Hackett and Phil) on the 1976 clip for "A Trick of the Tail", the hear-no-evil-speak-no-evil-see-no-evil themes of "Keep it Dark", and a Top of the Pops appearance by th band in front of a small, very-80's crowd in support of "Paperlate". There are lots more seldom-seen videos above, many are quite nice on their own, but the disc drags in that there is a string of videos with the same theme: the band playing the song faux-live. Not very creative, and they don't always look like they're having fun. Phil Collins occasionally laughs while lip-synching, or the band acknowledges that they're clearly strumming to the music, but you get the feeling they'd rather be mugging for the camera a la the humorous "Illegal Alien" or "Jesus He Knows Me" clips. Of these band jam videos, the worst offender perhaps is "abacab", which edits out the extended instrumental at the end of the LP version in favor of the looped single version. It's jarring aurally and visually.
