The eagerly awaited studio album ‘Genesis Revisited II’ by Steve Hackett, includes some of the most respected vocalists of our days, such as Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth), Simon Collins (Phil Collins’ son), Amanda Lehmann, Conrad Keely, Francis Dunnery, Neal Morse, John Wetton, Nad Sylvan and Nik Kershaw; Steve Rothery of Marillion and Roine Stolt of The Flower Kings and Transatlantic, also join in to share guitar duties, while Jeremy Stacey and Gary O’Toole are amongst the chosen drummers. This new Steve Hackett LP is available in different formats, including a limited edition 2CD Media-book, and a unique 4LP & 2CD version.
“It’s a project of Wagnerian proportions!” says Steve Hackett. “I’ve remained true to the spirit of the original songs, whilst changing and highlighting details. The vocalists all contribute their own character to the whole.”
“This time around, I’ve tried to satisfy what everyone wants, including myself …” – comments Steve Hackett on his choice for the track list. “Initially, I was thinking of just going for the best songs not featured on the first album. But then people thought I should do those tracks where the guitar was emphasized. So, I’ve done both. I’ve also included four songs with Genesis threads, most of which were written during the period and had a Genesis feel, such as the co-written ‘Shadow of the Hierophant’.”
Steve Hackett’s tour will be a special production and something of a departure from his recent live shows. It will mark the first time any original former member of Genesis has toured the band’s repertoire solely from the 1971 – 1977 period, and will comprise songs co-written by Steve Hackett from that period, including such classics as Supper’s Ready, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and The Musical Box. The line-up will feature the addition of Nad Sylvan as principal vocalist on several songs.
