Review by SouthSideoftheSky
2 stars Genesis Re-Revisited II

This is a single disc version of Steve Hackett's Genesis Revisited II (which is a double disc set) with one extra track added. That extra track is the only reason I'm reviewing this otherwise unnecessary release separately. Thankfully, both versions of the album (as well as the live Genesis Revisited: Live At Hammersmith) are available for streaming on Spotify.

As I noted in my review of the full version of the album, apart from Steve himself, no other Genesis members appeared on that album. The additional track that didn't appear on the two disc version is however a rendition of Carpet Crawlers featuring Ray Wilson, the vocalist on Genesis' Calling All Stations album. Of course, Steve had left Genesis a very long time before Wilson joined, so the two never played together in Genesis. Yet, it is interesting to hear them together. It is a good version of this song, originally from The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. The rest of this album is simply a selection of the tracks from Genesis Revisited II, and I wouldn't even say that these are the best selections.

This version of Carpet Crawlers is worth hearing, but it would clearly have been better just to include this song on the two disc version and never bothered with this single disc version.

Only serious collectors will want to have this in addition to the two disc version
