According to a post by Nick Davis on the official Genesis site, all tracks are studio versions. Nick shared, "There will be new mixes of pretty much everything up to the [Genesis] album, [although] probably not "Supper's Ready" (after all band members approval of course!). For your [information], I do a 5.1 mix of the old title and do a new stereo mix at the same time. This means that slowly we are building up a 5.1 catalog which will bring the SACD releases closer - I hope!!" One can only assume that the comment about complete band approval obviously relates to Peter Gabriel's supposed disenchantment with the 5.1 mix of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.

5.1 Mix of The Lamb Lies Down - Delayed Again

While Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Phil Collins, and Steve Hackett were fine with the new 5.1 mix of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, it appears Peter Gabriel is not. According to a post by Genesis engineer Nick Davis on the band's official site, additional work will be done on the mix prior to releasing it. This means that the November release formally planned is not going to happen. 2005 anyone?
