Editorial Reviews

5 DVD boxed set with new 2009 5.1 DTS and Dolby Digital sound mixes, includes the DVD debuts of The Mama Tour and Three Sides Live. This DVD box set also includes Genesis Live At Wembley Stadium, Genesis: The Way We Walk-Live In Concert, and VH-1 Behind The Music. Three Sides Live, the concert film shot at Nassau Coliseum and released in tandem with the live album of the same title, which made the Top Ten on both sides of the Atlantic in 1982. Contains extra full length tracks in 5.1 Audio only. Available on DVD for the first time.
Genesis Live The Mama Tour, filmed in 1984 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, and featuring the band performing material from the chart-topping Genesis album. Also features The Making of the Mama Album, a home video filmed by Phil Collins during the making of the Genesis album. Available on DVD for the first time. Genesis Live At Wembley Stadium, shot during the group's record-breaking run of four sold-out concerts in July 1987, at the height of their popularity following the release of the number one album Invisible Touch. The DVD also features the tour documentary entitled Visible Touch. Genesis: The Way We Walk Live In Concert, filmed in 1992 at London's Earls Court Exhibition Centre, and issued alongside the albums Live The Way We Walk Volume One: The Shorts and Volume Two: The Longs. Bonus material alongside The Mama Documentary comes in the shape of the updated 2009 version of VH1 Behind The Music special about the band. The original version aired in December 1999.

4.0 out of 5 stars Making the best of what exists November 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This box set contains four video programs by the Collins/Banks/Rutherford/Steurmer/Thompson line-up of Genesis, and finds the group touring behind the "Abacab", "Genesis"(1983), ""Invisible Touch" & "We Can't Dance" albums. There is also a VH-1 "Behind The Music" documentary, and empty spaces in the packaging so that you can install the renuion tour "When in Rome" 3-DVD set into the packaging. The musical performances & sound quality in the four concerts included are uniformly excellent, assuming that you like the later, more commercial part of the group's career.

First you get "Three Sides Live" a concert film/documentary that had been offered on VHS & Laserdisc, but never before on DVD. Unfortunately, the opening song "Behind The Lines" is slightly edited, and interviews & behind the scenes footage interrupts "Duchess", "Me & Sarah Jane" & "Man on The Corner", and there is nothing that can be done about this. The material was originally shot on film, then edited on videotape, and unfortunately, after an extensive search, the group was not able to find the raw film footage, therefore, it wasn't possible to re-edit the footage or add extra songs. However, you do get a newly remixed 5.1 soundtrack which sounds great, and it is a genuine remix, not some fake upmix. As bonus material, you get audio only surround versions of "Behind The Lines", "Duchess", "Me and Sarah Jane", "Man on The Corner", "One For The Vine", Fountain of Salmacis" & "Follow You, Follow Me". The video quality is slightly better than the original VHS & Laserdisc releases.

"The Mama Tour" also makes its' DVD debut, and regretably, the situation is the same as for "Three Sides Live".

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm really glad these are on DVD, but... January 16, 2010
Format:DVD
The Genesis Movie Box finally sees the release of the much sought after concert videos for 1984's The Mama Tour and 1982's Three Sides Live along side of the previously released DVDs for and The Way We Walk and Live at Wembley along with a bonus DVD featuring an updated version of VH-1s Behind The Music and an empty case to insert the discs for Genesis' When In Rome 2007 3-DVD set (which was released the year prior and must be purchased separately). Here are my thoughts on these discs:

THREE SIDES LIVE - First time on DVD and exclusive to this box set! First off, the 5.1 audio on this release is superb! Nick Davis does an outstanding job on the audio for this release. WOW! As an added bonus (and probably because many people complained about the failure to include it on the Genesis Live 1973-2007 (8 CD/3 DVD) box set), you also get some bonus 5.1 surround sound audio on this DVD taken from the 3 Sides Live album. The video quality is only so-so. Apparently, the video master was lost, so the quality is only as good as the old VHS tape you may have lying around - although at least you have it in a relatively current digital video format now.

THE MAMA TOUR - First time on DVD and exclusive to this box set! Again, the new 5.1 surround mix on this one is fantastic! Once again, great work by Nick Davis on the mixes. Sadly, like Three Sides Live, the original video master was lost for this concert film, so the video quality is only so-so. I'm glad to have it on DVD, but I'd be lying if I wasn't a little disappointed with the picture quality. Its watchable, but not as crisp and clean as you might hope it would be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thanks for MAMA!!! November 24, 2009
Format:DVD
I'm very happy for the inclusion of the long elusive DVD of the MAMA Tour from '83. I remember watching this on MTV when it actually showed videos instead of endless, mind-numbing hours of 'reality' TV. It brings back so many memories. I agree that Blu-ray would have been nice, but let's consider the quality of the source material for, say, 3 Sides Live. It couldn't get any better on Blu-ray than on DVD (in my opinion). Just like old movies; they are just as good on DVD which is good enough for me. My major concern was the sound quality which in itself, blew me away!! The video quality is a little 'cloudy' on the MAMA DVD but the DTS was awesome.

I think it was awefully nice of them to include a double disc jewel case for the inclusion of the When In Rome DVD set (although mine was damaged; hence the 4 stars). It even has a nice cozy little spot in the book for the Come Rain or Come Shine disc. Mine will actually stay in the eco-pak it originally came in. This particular DVD should have a Blu-ray counterpart!!

Hopefully this will appeal to those that are in it for the sound, nostalgia & sheer showmanship than the picture. Of course the video quality will be far better with Live From Wembley & The Way We Walk so don't be too concerned. I think this is well worth it for the long awaited DVD debut of MAMA & extended In The Cage medley featuring In That Quiet Earth. Superb!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but... August 23, 2014
By Eloá C
Format:DVD
This is a good register of Genesis live between 1981 and 1992, but it could be so much better that I think 3 stars is the fairer rating. For a start, I don't quite get the empty case for When In Rome 2007. I do have the DVDs for that show, but I don't want to put the discs inside the box. I thought that was very unnecessary and it surely raised the costs of production for the box. Considering that, the title for this box is a lie, because the shows go from 1981 to 1992. Second, I miss a DVD of the Ray Wilson phase, which is very discriminated by most fans, but which is as Genesis as any other to me. There are good and reasonable quality footage of that era of the band and they could surely have included them here. Also, as any prog rocker, I miss a Gabriel era film. Had they included a show from 1970 to 1975, this box would have been amazing. Actually, I even miss some earlier Collins era shows, like the fantastic Genesis In London, from 1980, or any other from 1976 to 1978 (the exceptional In Concert, for instance). One might say "the quality of the footage is bad", but the quality of all DVDs here, with the possible exception of The Way We Walk, is bad as well. They seem like they were transferred from a VHS or something like that. As for the songs in the DVDs, I prefer the ones in 1983's Mama Tour, with the Abacab tour in a second place. The 1992 show is reasonable, featuring some then-new songs (some of which are quite good, actually, like Fading Lights and Driving the Last Spike) and some chopped old songs in a medley. The Invisible Touch tour DVD is the worst here, with a lot of songs from that album (6 out of 8) and no old song whatsoever (the oldest is Los Endos). Read more ›
