The Gabriel Era DVD is an independent critical guide to the music of Genesis in the crucial progressive rock years when the legendary Peter Gabriel was the frontman of the band. As a showman Peter Gabriel was unsurpassed, appearing in a mindboggling array of masks and costumes, including the dress-clad fox and the human sunflower. These amazing theatrical performances were featured alongside some of the most powerful music of the 70's.

The Gabriel Era DVD features rare archive performances from film and television, alongside the views of a team of leading musicians and music critics. The book Genesis and the Press features rare photos, documents and memorabilia and tells the story of Genesis using the words of the band and the critics. To ensure editorial control, the film is totally unauthorised and has not been approved by past or present members or management of the band.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
1 stars My friend, Yoga, lent this DVD to me and I was really surprised with its misleading cover because there was basically none of the song is taken from "Foxtrot" album. The production of the DVD is not professional at all where the pictures and sounds are not good. The DVD also contains information that distracts pleasnt viewing like when concert footage with Peter Gabriel the annoying sticker of "Property of." appears constantly. It laso appears that this DVD has never been endorsed by the band as there is no interview with memberrs of the band.

For those who love early Genesis, there must be an interest in live performance footage. There are some good clips included here. But, this DVD will fall far short of meeting your interest.. I am lucky that I did not buy this DVD and purchasing this DVD is not a wise decision at all. You might want to allocate your spending to other great prog albums or prog DVDs but not this one. By the way, all the information contained here in this DVD are all very basic which I guess for most of you who have known Genesis - even though not a die hard fan, would know that basic information. So, why bother having this DVD? This is just released for commercial benefit to the producerm, not the band. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
