OK, here's the part where I give
back to you, the little people. Just kidding. I have some high-res
scans of album covers, some desktop-sized images you can use, some
nice big Genesis logos, and an insert for the WWW DVD. I have some
of my own bootleg album inserts being hosted on another site, to
which I have a link down below. I have some photos of the band playing
live. In the realm of actual music, I have four mp3s from a very,
very early recording of Genesis--they're only partial, but they're
very interesting. Finally I have posted some lengthy reviews of
shows I've been to. To make it easier for you to get to specific
section of Goodies you want, I have provided a link menu almost
directly below to the different sections I've broken them up into.
I'm very open to making Goodies
to your specifications, so if you'd like any of the below files
in a different size, file format, or even coloring (in some cases),
I can fix you up. Feel free to email
me for that kind of stuff. I may eventually add more things to this
page, so check back from time to time! To download the files,
right click the thumbnail or the text link (or just hold down the
button if you're a Mac user with a one-button mouse) and pick "download
link to disk" from the pop-up menu. The sizes for each are

The first logo is 3" wide in both
versions, one a jpeg and one a gif. The second is also 3",
and both are 300 dpi. The gif has a transparent background, so if
you use it it shouldn't have a white box around it like the thumbnail
below. I drew this first logo myself
by tracing off of a scan from an album insert in Adobe Illustrator.
I am fully capable of switching its colors to match those of one
of the album covers; these were my own personal color choices. If
you'd like, I can also provide the file in eps format, which would
be a vector graphics file. See, raster graphic images like jpegs
and tiffs are based on pixels, so when you blow them up to a bigger
size the computer calculates and adds pixels that it guesses would
go there. This makes blown up raster images really blurry and pixellated.
However, vector-based graphics like eps files are based on bezier
curves, so when you blow them up they maintain their fidelity. That's
your computer graphics lesson for today.

These covers are 4" wide and 300

can kind of see the texture of the print job. I also have the full

My Album Covers
I have created some full-color inserts
for a handful of bootlegs. You will notice thumbnails of the covers
next to some of the entries in my live recordings section. Some
day if I have enough space on the site I may upload the files here,
but actually the great majority of these inserts are for shows that
now have better circulating versions with their own artwork. The
main body of artwork I have produced for really good shows is described
The Coaster Factory - artwork
"The Coaster Factory" is a boot remastering group headed
by David Kempler, of which I am an on-again, off-again member (mainly
in the artwork department). Below are some thumbnails for these
inserts. Unfortunately due to space restrictions on my site, I am
unable to host them all--but fortunately the friend to all Genesis
freaks, Simon Funnell, graciously hosts the artwork for all of these
releases (as well as providing us with our own section on his web
site, detailing all releases). So you can just visit his
website if any of the thumbnails below strike your fancy. Click
the text links below to go to my detailed reviews of these audio
shows in the live recordings section.
This is a Coaster Factory remaster
of "PGWeed1," which documents Peter Gabriel's performance
in Rotterdam, Holland, in September of '77 (during his first solo
This Peter Gabriel show, from the last US
show in 1986, is called Goodbye
Here's another PG show,
this one from the Growing Up tour. This one has been released
as part of the Encore Series--this audience-sourced version is an
alternative for the completist.
This cover below is for the bootleg called
We Walked on Hornet Field.
It was remastered from low generation tapes by The Coaster Factory

Here we have the artwork for the remaster

Another group called I4Detail also remastered this show, but this
one is for the CF version.

A remaster of a wonderful
audience gig from early in the Duke tour, when Genesis made
an historic return to the famous Friar's Club in Aylesbury, where
much of their early fanbase was built.
Back in Aylesbury
Back in Aylesbury
This one is a remaster of
a TOTT tour show from fairly early in the tour, in Boston. The name
comes from the habit of the audience to call for "The Knife"--they
never got it.
Boston Without a Knife Front
Boston Without a Knife Back
This is one of the better audience gigs
from the SEBTP tour, featuring a unique singing of the "Jerusalem
Boogie" by Pete and Phil before "Supper's Ready."
Hence the title.
Boogie in Motor City Front
Boogie in Motor City Back
This one is a bootleg of my
own creation, a sort of compilation putting together the complete
radio broadcast of Empire Pool tracks from the famous performance
of 15 April 1975 (mind you, this is the full broadcast, NOT the
full show). Dave Kempler dehissed and otherwise remastered it, and
now it's a Coaster Factory release.
This is a great remaster of
the famous gig from the end of the Duke tour at the Madison
Square Garden in NYC. Featuring an encore of "Back in NYC,"
and a great set.
Below we have a Coaster Factory Mama tour boot,
an audience recording from Chester's b-day.
Here is what may be the longest-titled bootleg
ever, ABaCab: Wrapping Up the World in Clothes of Brass and Cellophane.
The source is pre-FM stuff from the famous Three Sides Live shows
in New York, 1981 (and possibly various other gigs as well).
Here is a great show from
the Mama tour with some excellent audience atmosphere: Reno:
The Center of the Universe.

I have provided these at both 800x600
and 1024x768 (except the one I made myself, at the end of this section).
If you have a different resolution, you can either use the one provided
that's closest, or if you want something that will look a little
higher quality, you can email me and I can resize it for you. Or
if you have some kind of image editing application you can probably
resize it yourself pretty easily. Even if you throw the 1024 image
onto an 800 resolution, it should automatically scale down to fit
the screen anyway. As you can see, the album covers are just not
in the same proportion as the actual monitor size, so I had to crop
them a little oddly. The only way to get the entire cover of NC
would have been to have extra space on either side, and I thought
that would look ugly. But again, if you'd like something different,
hey, I'm open.

The Way We Walk DVD Camera Angles Insert
The Genesis 2-disc DVD
from the WCD concert comes with a fantastic feature: multiple camera
angles, so you can see particular band members throughout the song,
instead of watching the main director's cut where the angles jump
around a lot and you can't tell what chord Mike is hitting or whether
Chester's headset flew off his head. However, one thing the DVD
is missing is any kind of informational insert on the inside of
the case to tell you what each angle is pointing at on each song,
and how many different angles are actually available for each song.
Willem Beens was somehow able to get screen captures from the DVD
menu that actually listed this information, and posted them as a
jpeg; but it was missing a few tracks and the quality wasn't so
hot. So I took the computer generated image of the stage and copied
out the info into better text and laid it out in a way that pleased
me. Then the official site finally got around to offering their
own insert. But theirs, while having the exact same info as mine
and having some nice imagery on it, is very low quality and won't
print out nice. However, mine is nice and high-res and also prints
out to the right size to fit in your DVD case. You should be able
to print it out and cut it out and use it. It's a handy reference
to have, believe me.

Thanks go to Kevin DeVito for sending
me some hi-res scans of photos he took of the band at two different
shows in 1977 and 1978. Due to space limitations on the site, I
could not put up the full-size, raw files he sent me. Clicking on
the thumbnails below will take you to fairly large versions, however,
which have been somewhat touched-up by me in Photoshop. Feel free
to contact me if you
would like the original files.

In 9 January 1970, Genesis recorded
four songs for a documentary about a painter named Mick Jackson.
They were recorded at BBC Studios and a fantastically good quality
tape of this recording exists, but is currently not officially or
unofficially available. However, short 20 second clips of the four
songs in mp3 form have leaked out. So, in the spirit of giving,
I am putting them up here for your enjoyment. Be aware they are
painfully short, but what is there sounds pretty great. The file
size of each one averages around 325 K.
