Following on from the Premonitions Boxset that focused on Steve Hackett’s releases under the Charisma label, here comes a new compilation celebrating his releases from 1984 until 2006.
Comprising 6CDs and 2 DVDs featuring remasters of the original albums as well as additional bonus material and live surround mixes of tracks featured across the boxset. Released on the 5th October, it is an extensive view on the material Hackett has produced as a solo outfit and a good companion to any Genesis fans who have recently discovered Steve through his Genesis-esque tours.
Steve commented on the release: “I’m excited to announce the release of a special bumper retrospective 1984 – 2006 box set. This will include six re-mastered albums, several 5.1 surround sound tracks including a new version of the GTR track “When the Heart Rules the Mind”, three previously unreleased live videos and the whole of the DVD Somewhere in South America, as well as a 60 page booklet including rare photos and new liner notes.
Alongside the collection announcement, Steve has announced he will embark upon a tour where he’ll play Selling England by the Pound in full along with his own Spectral Mornings. It looks set to be a promising year of work and tour for Steve. A new solo album is also anticipated on the horizon.
