Nick Davis Provides Update on Genesis Live Box Set

Nick Davis, Genesis' long-time Producer and Engineer, stated on the official Genesis site's forum that he has completed the remixing and remastering (of the audio) for Three Sides Live and The Way We Walk: Volumes One and Two (a.k.a. The Shorts and The Longs) in stereo and 5.1 surround sound. To date, that means all of the live albums from 1977's Seconds Out through 2007's Live Over Europe are completed. All that remains at this point are remixing and remastering any potential bonus live tracks that may be included and the 1973 live album, Genesis Live. Sadly, the multi-tracks for Genesis Live still appear to be missing. Hopefully, the missing multi-tracks will turn up soon (if you have any information as to where the missing multi-tracks may be, please contact me so that I may pass your information on to Nick Davis). The band also plans to review possible unreleased or previously rare video for the release (similar to what they did for the previous three Genesis box sets: 1970-1975, 1976-1982, 1983-1998).

Phil Collins Says, "Remember The Alamo!"

Its been said before that Phil Collins had a passion for collecting authentic items from the Alamo. So, perhaps its no surprise that Collins is in San Antonio, Texas as part of the ceremonies around the anniversary of that historic famous battle.
“Basically, now I've stopped being Phil Collins the singer. This has become what I do,” said Collins. Collins talks about his passion for collecting items from the Alamo, a possible book on the subject and his impressive collection of cannon balls, artifacts and other documents from the period, and his narration of 13-minute “Alamo diorama light and sound show” at the History Shop at 713 E. Houston St., by the Alamo. For more on Phil's incredible hobby, click here to read an article featured in My San Antonio News.
