Genesis Prep "The Movie Box," Featuring Collins-Era Concert Films

October 7, 2009 1:04 PM ET

Genesis will wrap up a year's worth of reissues and box sets with The Movie Box, a five-DVD collection spotlighting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-nominated band's live performances while Phil Collins was at the helm. Included in The Movie Box, which will be released November 24th, are the DVD debuts of Three Sides Live, a 1981 concert film from New York's Nassau Coliseum, and 1984's Genesis Live - The Mama Tour. The fifth DVD in the set will feature an updated version of Genesis' VH1's Behind the Music special, which originally aired in 1999, before the group's reunion with Collins.

Meet all of this year's Rock Hall nominees.

The Movie Box will also house Live At Wembley Stadium, filmed at the famed British venue during four sold-out nights of the Invisible Touch tour, plus the 1992 concert video Genesis: The Way We Walk-Live In Concert. All of the concert films will boast new 5.1 DTS and Dolby Digital sound mixes, plus their accompanying documentaries.

Just last month, Genesis released the 10-disc box set Genesis Live 1973-2007, which followed the reissuing of the band's entire 14 album catalog on CD/DVD. As Rolling Stone previously reported, all eras of Genesis — from Peter Gabriel to Phil Collins to Ray Wilson and back to Phil Collins — were among the nominees for the 2010 class of inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This year's inductees will be announced in January 2010.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
