Nick Davis Provides An Update on the Genesis Reissued Back Catalog

According to a post Nick Davis made in the Forum on the official Genesis site, the following is now confirmed for the newly remixed and remastered Genesis back catalog:


EUROPE:                SACD + DVD (PAL)

Nick added, "The DVD will have DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 plus the single videos (of that album) plus new interviews with the band. The hybrid SACD will have CD stereo, high resolution stereo and the 5.1 mix. The albums will be sold separately - except the extras disc - there will be a 'box' for each release which will have all the albums in plus the extras disc set. There are territories which will have hybrid SACD and DVD-V (NTSC) for those that are interested. The DVD is not region encoded."

While some of this news has been announced (both here and other places) previously, this is the most complete information on the new back catalog titles to date. The first batch of reissues, due in March in Europe (North America release dates have yet to be confirmed), are the studio albums from Trick of the Tail through Abacab.
