Well, the card has been ridden hard so far in 2017 (been a bad year so far for domestic infrastructure issues), so I was hoping to stretch out the purchases.
Well, you've returned the favor too occasionally! I was not aware of the Genesis Revisited II
double-CD release by Hackett until I started poking around the 'net prompted by your Hackett post. I ordered it from Amazon earlier today. Listening to the Auto-Rip download until the physical CDs arrive.
Quite the diverse collection of guest vocalists on this. Mikael Akerfeldt (of Opeth) as one of the vocalists on "Supper's Ready", and John Wetton on "Afterglow"? Heh.
Aside from augmented instrumentation here and there (and modern production), these seem to be fairly faithful to the original versions. Hackett must be pretty seriously nostalgic for his time in Genesis (I suppose some might say "stuck in the past"...) to come back to this material nearly 4 decades on and embark on a project of this magnitude.
The years just pass like trains. I wave, but they don't slow down.
