Genesis Multi-Track Master Tape Missing; One Song From New 5.1s Will Not Be In True Surround Sound

According to Nick Davis, Genesis' long-time Producer, the multi-track master tape for the song "Say It's Alright Joe" from the And Then There Were Three album is missing. As a result, Davis had to use "artificial surround" for that song on the 5.1 remix of And Then There Were Three. If you have any information as to the whereabouts of the original multi-track master tape, please e-mail me (I will pass the information on to Nick Davis and Genesis' management).
