"Issue 91 of Dusk, with which our magazine enters its twenty-eighth year of life, addresses numerous topics strictly related to the world of Genesis, some of very close relevance, others that look backwards", explains Mario Giammetti.
"After being the first magazine in the world (including the web) to review At The Edge Of Light, two months in advance of the release, it was obviously a duty to return to the new album by Steve Hackett with insights that reveal the various versions available, explain the texts and tell the cover artwork, again entrusted to Maurizio and Angela Vicedomini. All closed by the usual exclusive interview with the guitarist ".
"Ample space also for Anthony Phillips. Recent reprints (Field day e Seventh Heaven) are faced from a technical point of view, with Tommaso Rivieccio who makes us discover every detail and every improvement of the 5.1 versions. Again, Anthony Phillips then gave us a nice interview, particularly focused, however, on his latest pop album in a broad sense, Invisible Men, this too republished for a long time.
"Let's talk about the two lives of Phil Collins recently reissued, Serious Hits ... Live e A Hot Night In Paris. The latter, however, had never been released on vinyl before. Silvio Amenduni talks about exactly this ".
"Francesco Gazzara instead attended one of the very first dates of the Mike & The Mechanics English tour, that of February 28. In that case Pluto played at home, as the Guildford concert took place. "
"Again Rivieccio - continues Giammetti - returns with an unmissable episode of the acclaimed Bankstatements column, which reveals all the secrets of the keyboards of Tony Banks. In this case, our collaborator analyzes the first part of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. Recently in England a very luxurious book just dedicated to lamb was released, And The lamb, Lies Down, On Broadway written by Jon Kirkman. The analysis is entrusted to our Paul Davis ".
"To finish, I am very proud to present theyet another scoop of Dusk. We managed to track down John Heather, one of the three leading South African brothers of Quiet World, a very unknown group that, in 1980, released the album The Road. On that record, a beardless Steve Hackett made his first professional recordings playing guitar and harmonica. Next to Heather's memories, we also consulted bassist Dick Driver and Steve himself to provide the most reliable picture possible on another galaxy completely unknown before today. "
All that remains is to wait for the new issue of Dusk, as always rich in Genesis & Co. material.And who hasn't already done so, can sign up here.
