Genesis Documentary ‘Sum of the Parts’ Coming in November
The upcoming BBC documentary 'Together and Apart' will be paired with another film called 'Sum of the Parts,' set for release in November on DVD, to form a comprehensive history of Genesis. Together, they trace the history of a band that not only survived but thrived through a number of lineup and stylistic changes.
The film package features input from Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford. Gabriel left in the mid '70s; Hackett launched his solo career a couple years later.
"I think when we got it right," Gabriel said in a news release. "We had something that none of us could do on our own. And there were different musical histories merging together in a powerful way."
'Sum of the Parts' and 'Together and Apart' are both due on Nov. 17 via Eagle Vision. That's just a few weeks after the 1982 concert movie 'Three Sides Live' arrives on Blu-ray for the first time. A three-disc box set spanning the band's entire career, 'R-Kive,' will be released on Sept. 29.
