37-tracks documenting the band's history with their classic material compiled alongside solo selections from Banks, Collins, Gabriel, Hackett and Rutherford!

Spanning forty-two years, this Triple Disc set features many GENESIS classics together with several tracks from the solo careers of members: Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford, plus songs from his band Mike & The Mechanics.

GENESIS and their associated solo projects have accumulated a remarkable and undiminished series of accomplishments over the years, and have collectively amassed an incredible fourteen chart-topping albums as well as over two-dozen more that reached the Top 10!
In total, GENESIS and the members' related solo projects have sold more than 300 million albums worldwide.

Chronologically ordered, ‘R-Kive’ features the GENESIS's biggest hits including: ‘Invisible Touch’, ‘Turn It On Again’, ‘Land Of Confusion’ and ‘I Can't Dance’. Along the way it also visits MIKE & THE MECHANICS' classics: ‘The Living Years’ and ‘Over My Shoulder’, Phil Collins’s: ‘In The Air Tonight’ and his Philip Bailey duet: ‘Easy Lover’ and Peter Gabriel’s: ‘Solsbury Hill’.

‘R-Kive’ opens with: ‘The Knife’ - a nine-minute proto-punk number that became a favourite closing number during the band's early shows, and was written before either Hackett or Collins had joined the band. In addition to 22 GENESIS songs, each member's work outside of the band is represented democratically with three songs each.

Such an approach contributes to a hugely eclectic body of work which features early material including the sprawling seven-section odyssey: ‘Supper's Ready’ and the title track from the double conceptual masterpiece that is: ‘The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway’.

Yet 'R-Kive' also visits the unexpected - as evidenced by Hackett’s flamenco-inspired: ‘Nomads’, Peter Gabriel’s: ‘Signal To Noise’ which featured Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (“possibly the greatest singer we had worked with”), and ‘Calling All Stations’, the sole representative from the short-lived era in which GENESIS were fronted by former STILTSKIN vocalist Ray Wilson.

“This album jogs memories about old albums, things people might have missed the first time around,” says Collins. “Most of the time, the singles always seem to be the things that are remembered from albums. Sometimes the lesser-known tracks deserve better than to be forgotten.”

“I'm a songwriter first of all,” adds Rutherford. “When you put these songs together, it's a wonderfully impressive array and variety of songs. It's an interesting combination that doesn't normally get put on the same page.”

The release of ‘R-Kive’ is followed by the accompanying reunion documentary: ‘Genesis: Together And Apart’ which will be broadcast by the BBC in early October 2014. An accompanying DVD: ‘Sum Of The Parts’, which will also be issued by Eagle Rock in November 2014.

Strength in depth - Vitality in variety - Creativity in diversity - In terms of what they've done together, and what they've done apart, there's never been a band like GENESIS. It's a captivating story, told here from the beginning to the end for the very first time.

‘R-Kive’ is released on 22nd September 2014.
