Thread: New Genesis Wind & Wuthering Documentary

  1. #1

    New Genesis Wind & Wuthering Documentary

    I am fully aware, that whilst half of you here will consider it their best album,
    half of you won't own a copy!

    Therefore, half of you won't absolutely adore this

    This is once again very impressive and you deserve to be acknowledged for your effort! If only the official docs were this good.

    Excellent! This is so well done, my words can't do it justice.
    Thank you so much for putting this together. Probably(next to Trick) one of my favorite post Gabriel Genesis albums.

    Looking forward to watching this. There's been a lot of Genesis in my life lately - Gigs with the Gabriel tribute I play with, Genesis concert, and the Musical Box show all in November. It got me thinking about how everyone talks about "the Gabriel era" and "the Collins era". I've come to realize that my personal favorite is "the Hackett era".

    Thanks for all your work in producing/designing these videos. Definitely one of my favourite Genesis albums.

    More awesomeness from Rael! (I love this one, even above aTotT.)

    Rael: this was very lovingly created! You have precisely captured the beautiful melancholy, depth, breadth, and grandeur of what I consider to be the band's best record. The instrumental versions of the songs that are playing in the background are perfect and create a wholly complimentary backdrop. Also, thanks for providing links to the source material for those versions.

    As before, I learned a few new things here, mostly about Steve's input. I knew he'd offered Please Don't Touch to the band and that they had rehearsed it, Phil's comment of "I can't get behind that" essentially nixing its potential inclusion. However, I wasn't aware he also offered Hoping Love Will Last and that the song Narnia was around during his Genesis days. Finally, I must be part of a very small minority of people who have never had an issue with Your Own Special Way. The instrumental version of the middle section that was in this video is quite beautiful.

    I'll be eagerly awaiting your next installment as you document the Genesis canon!

    That was a beautifully made video, I didn't know about the Moorcock inspiration for One For The Vine, I have that book somewhere, will reread it. Many thanks for a great watch.

    Really enjoyed it, and as others have commented, really captures the album's special atmosphere. Also, fascinating snippets of musical variants from creative use of the multitracks. And interesting non-Genesis chamber arrangements of some of the music.

    But Rael, I have to ask: are you REALLY doing these on a mobile phone, as I seem to remember you claimed last time?

    Well I have the album (W&W was the first LP by Genesis that I bought back in 1977) and I Adore your documentary. I learned a lot about the making of the LP (as well as the lyrics) from watching the doc. I also enjoyed the alternate mixes & background music. Looking forward to your next piece about Genesis (and I hope you consider doing similar documentaries on other Great Prog Albums in the future).

    I do the voice on my phone. That's why it sounds pretty shit. I should buy a decent microphone, I know, but I'm a tight-arse.
    I edit the thing using a free editing software called Shotcut.

    I'm really pleased with this one. There are a few things I'd still change, but I knew it would hit the exact spot. I'm so glad that it has made so many people happy. One can only imagine how these actual bands that we adore so much feel when they sit back and listen to the original albums for the first time, let alone having a stadium of people singing along to your words.

    I'll settle for being a legend in my own bedroom for now!
