Genesis can be a bit of a marmite band (Gabriel vs Collins, prog vs pop etc) but if you like them you'll probably like this - except you may have some of the contents already. There are some exclusives here; it's all been remixed and some discs are now with 5.1 sound.
£39.99 at Play (+ quidco etc), elsewhere is about £50 upwards.
