    Can't remember who it was who sold their back catalogue in a similar fashion (or had it sold by their estate), but the ink was barely dry on the contract before the first advertisement was aired using one of the artist's songs.

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing!

    I suppose it's way too early to speculate, but is there any chance the fans get anything out of this? E.g., archival live releases, new editions, new reissues?

    I guess time will tell, but I'm curious if anyone has any reasonable guesses here.

    Well, because it doesn't include the music Genesis recorded with Gabriel, Hackett and Phillips I'm not that curious.

    It is weird to me personally to see this -- I grew up in Concord, CA literally down the road from the old concord jazz record label offices, I went by it almost every day. Now Concord records is a huge corporation. Also owned by Black Rock, so, kinda sus now too unfortunately
    Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

    Maybe reissues of the last reissues but without the loud mastering.

    I think Steve deserves a portion of the $300 million (what I read yesterday, online - I think). He was responsible for the growth and strength of the band.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    The people with more money and greater success apparently disagree…

    I would expect that the rights to FGTR through Seconds Out were not included.

    Not much to be made from anything before then obviously. Invisible Touch alone probably sold more copies than the PG/SH era combined.

    To be fair, demographically prog fans are pretty stacked financially, Im sure the right people could find a lot of money to be made in those early years.

    Wasn't Tonight, Tonight already used in a Michelob commercial? In fact I could see most of Invisible Touch making the rounds as commercial fodder.

    Most of Phil's solo.stuff was included.in the deal. Was any of Mike & The Mechanics included?

    It`s the lot of the ancient rock star, and I suppose beats getting part time work in a supermarket , though that could be debated. The "Tools of the trade are often last to go" even although they won`t be getting used anytime soon.


    this track is kinda poignant.

    Hoping for some live material from 1978 to about 1982. The rest is pretty well covered.

    Bummer. My chances of hearing Return of the Giant Hogweed in a diaper commercial seem even slimmer than last week.

    I'm guessing they've sold the existing back catalogue only and everything else will stay in the vaults.
