Jeremy Clarkson, David Baddiel contribute to Genesis box set

The set will contain five albums plus rarities

Genesis will release a new box set, ‘The Beginning – 1970-1975’, on November 10.

David Baddiel, Jeremy Clarkson and Tony Robinson are among those who have written new sleeve notes for the set.

The set will include five of the band’s albums mixed in 5.1 surround sound – ‘Trespass’, ‘Nursery Cryme’, ‘Foxtrot’, ‘Selling England By The Pound’ and ‘The Lamb Dies Down On Broadway’ – plus rarities.

The rarities will be contained on the CD ‘Extra Tracks 1970-1975’. Included on this disc will be the band’s work for a BBC art film on the work of painter Michael Jackson, which was aborted before completion, as well as demos and B-sides.
