Genesis have announced that they will release a 53-track 5-CD and 24-track triple-LP BBC Broadcasts set on March 10.

The new set has been curated by founding member Tony Banks and the group’s long-time engineer and producer Nick Davis and is the first time all of these tracks have been released on vinyl, and the first time a majority of the iconic 1987 Wembley show has been made available in an audio-only format.

With only a handful of these tracks previously officially available, BBC Broadcasts spans the band's career from 1970 to 1998, featuring all three of the group’s vocalists, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins and Ray Wilson.

Stretching back from the very beginnings of the band’s career via appearances on Night Ride and John Peel, the set encompasses both of the group’s Knebworth performances from both 1978 and 1992, as well as their much-loved 1980 show at London’s Lyceum, and the sell-out run of shows at Wembley in 1987. 

The set also includes material from the NEC in 1998 and Paris Theatre and Night Ride sessions from the early 70s, as well as the much sought-after encore version of Watcher Of The Skies at Wembley Empire Pool in 1975.

You can see the new artwork and the tracklisting for BBC Broadcasts below.
