Nick Davis Announces Change In Plans For Genesis 5.1 Reissues & Laser Show 

According to Nick Davis, long time producer for Genesis and Phil Collins, the titles chosen for remixing in 5.1 surround sound are now The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway and Invisible Touch. According to a post of the official Genesis site, these albums were chosen by Genesis themselves, because they represent "key" albums in the band's history. This means that the initial plans to remix the self-titled album and We Can't Dance in 5.1 will not be happening for the time being. 

Nick expects to start mixing The Lamb in 5.1 as soon as next week. Apparently, the band wants The Lamb mixes done by the spring, with the release some time after that (the date is not specified at this time). In other surround sound news, Nick is mixing several Genesis hits into 5.1 for a laser show in Germany. Among the selected material is "Follow You Follow Me." More news on where in Germany this show will take place when known.
