"Genesis: Live Over Europe"

from - Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
Genesis takes a trip down memory lane on "Live Over Europe," which chronicles the first portion of the band's reunion tour. Due Nov. 20 via Atlantic, the double-disc set includes a number of songs the band hadn't performed in decades.

Among them are Peter Gabriel-era tunes such as closer "Carpet Crawlers," "Firth of Fifth" and "I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)." The group also dusted off the two-part instrumental "Duke's Intro" and oldies like "Home by the Sea" and "Ripples."

The band's Phil Collins-led hitmaking period is represented by tracks such as "Turn It on Again," "Follow You Follow Me," "Invisible Touch," No Son of Mine" and "Land of Confusion." Also included is a double drum solo sequence featuring Collins and Chester Thompson.

Genesis wrapped its tour Oct. 14 in Los Angeles. Also on Nov. 20, Rhino will issue a 12-disc boxed set featuring expanded editions of the group's albums from 1983-1998.
