Tony Banks reveals A Chord Too Far

Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks will release a four-disc box set featuring the best of his solo career this summer, it’s been confirmed.

A Chord Too Far will launch on July 6 via Esoteric Recordings and will feature 49 tracks selected by Banks from his back catalogue, including several remixes.

The tracklist has been chosen to represent his work outside of Genesis and takes material from A Curious Feeling (1979), The Fugitive (1983), The Wicked Lady (1983), Soundtracks (1986), Bankstatement (1989), Still (1991), Strictly Inc (1995), and his orchestral albums Seven: A Suite for Orchestra (2004) and Six Pieces for Orchestra (2012).

Also included in the package are four previously unreleased pieces, including three demos from his orchestral suites along with a track originally written for Still.

A Chord Too Far is the first in a series of re-releases of Banks’ entire solo career. A Curious Feeling and The Fugitive will launch in October, while The Wicked Lady and Soundtracks will be re-released in January 2016. Further details will be announced in due course.

Meanwhile Genesis will release their third and final instalment in their vinyl box set series titled Genesis: 1983-1998 on May 11 via Universal.
