1 stars What a mistake I made buying this DVD.. If there's one thing I could change in my life, it would be to go back in time and put this back on the shelf, leaving with a crisp $20 bill in my pocket and a free hour of my life waiting somewhere ahead of me. Ok, so either I have a perfect existence or my prioties are severely misaligned.

It really is, that bad! Most of the DVD consists of balding middle aged men discussing points of Genesis's career, and going over tracks in a dull and uninteresting manner. Sometimes featuring a un-talented greaseball playing keyboard riffs from "The Fountain of Salmacis". The remaining space consists of dozens of 3 second clips of horrible quality, from a Selling England concert. I can tell you right now the whole concert is available for free, with a much better transfer and remastering, on the internet. (I own it, it's superb)

To top it off, this wasn't even sanctioned by the band, and there's absolutely no packaging besides the case and insert, which is covered with ads for similar DVD's on different bands. (I imagine they are just as horrible) Hardly worth the $23 I paid for it.

This is of no interest to anybody, the clips of live performances are mostly muted, and only seconds long. Completionests only.
