Seasons of My Heart. What Am I Worth [Version 1]. What Am I Worth [Version 2]. Still Hurtin'. I'm Ragged But I'm Right. Your Heart. Rock It. How Come It. Heartbreak Hotel. You Gotta Be My Baby.
It's OK. Boat of Life. Taggin Along. Just One More. Gonna Come Get You. This set was also the only place to get the newly remixed stereo version of "Watcher of The Skies" until the Genesis box is released in the fall of , which sounds absolutely amazing!
The packaging includes a cardboard digipack with a unique album cover and detailed liner notes about each track with some rarely seen pictures of the band in an attractive quality paper insert booklet. Its a very unique item and as its a licensed product will probably become scarce quickly, but it offers very little to the fan who has all the albums. Unless you are a completist or finds the idea of getting the alternate mix of "Happy The Man" appealing, I would probably pass on this release.
Its a different concept, but its not going to provide the kind of retrospective that most people will be looking for from a Genesis collection. There are no plans to release this album outside North America.
I won't go into a review of each album since that is listed above, but in addition to some amazing surround sound mixes that bring new life to old favorites, some of the video highlights in this box include the much sought after In Concert footage which has not been available on video in any form since the early 90s, live footage from the Duke Tour which was previously only available in bootleg form , a documentary on the band's World Tour, and much more.
In short, this set is nothing short of a treasure trove of Genesis goodies, sure to please any fan of the band. The booklet is absolutely beautiful and comes on heavy stock paper. All around, this is an amazing set! Of course, there are those who have made comments about the fidelity of this release. Personally, I like the new surround mixes, but some people have argued that the increased volume and new mixes don't satisfy them since they are very slightly different from the original mixes on the older CD pressings and LPs of yesteryear.
I, myself, don't put much stock in these criticisms. I think it's safe to say that I am a fairly devoted fan, and I absolutely love this set. For that matter, it only wets my appetite for the next two sets; the next of which surfaces in September spanning the years If you are a true fan, you'll appreciate whether it be for the video footage, the sound of the new mixes or other goodies.
If you are among the minority that will moan over remixing the original studio tracks, I'd still recommend buying this box and keeping your old discs so that you can revisit the original mixes if you so desire. Either way, no Genesis fan should be without this box! The box also includes a bonus 2-disc set of period b-sides for a total of ten discs.
In terms of the mixes, I particularly enjoyed most of the surround mixes, but there are a couple of newly remixed tracks, which I did not enjoy as much as the originals. The overall improvements still certainly make it worth the price of admission, but there were a couple of disappointing moments.
The bonus video content was also a welcomed feature, with my personal favorites being never-before-seen rehearsal footage from the Mama Tour of course, the actual Mama Tour DVD still has not seen the light of day ; the behind the scenes documentary called No Admittance , which chronicles the making of the final studio album with Phil Collins, We Can't Dance ; and the making of footage from the "Land of Confusion" music video.
Fans should note that the original North American pressing also has "hidden" bonus video content on the Calling All Stations DVD not available on the other pressings from Europe or Japan.
As a hint, if you watch the electronic press kit and just let it keep playing, it will see an unedited video press kit; rare live footage of part of "Congo"; "There Must Be Some Other Way" live different than the version included on the normal box set ; the band's acoustic set at Cape Canaveral, Florida; their press conference and tour of the NASA space station in Florida, and more!
Like the box set, the booklet is absolutely beautiful and comes on heavy stock paper. The liner notes include some interesting insight from the band's long-time video producer Jim Yukich, who certainly demonstrates his disinterest in the Calling All Stations album with fervor.
As with the prior set, the quality of the video footage is not always perfect, but I still appreciate that the material is commercially available to the fans in many cases for the first time. Over all, I think any Genesis fan will find this set a worth while collection. I do think this box could have been vastly better had they added the missing studio b-sides, included the "Carpet Crawlers '99" remake to encompass the group's entire studio catalog instead of ending the collection one year shy of the full studio history , and had included a few missing video gems that I know are available in pristine condition, like the making of the "I Can't Dance" music video, which was available commercially on video in the days before DVD.
Multiple new releases and reissues combined with the announcement of a reunion tour sparked the interest of many, and the band's brief comeback tour ended up being one of the most successful and reportedly profitable tours of the year. Live Over Europe highlights the first leg of that reunion, capturing selections from every night of the European tour as the title so aptly suggests. The full set list is included in the album, and the mastering of the project really sounds quiet impressive.
Some fans have argued that the audience is too low in the mix, but I found the balance to be perfect. Others complain that the music has been dropped down a notch to suit Phil Collins' aging voice, but I think the recording sounds fantastic regardless although that is a true statement - some songs were detuned slightly.
The booklet included with the live album is exceptional. Its almost like a mini tour book, and reviewing the many full color, thick pages brings back a lot of great memories from the five shows I was able to see on two continents that year.
Whether you made it to the tour or the lofty ticket prices kept you away, this live set is a wonderful collection and includes all of the great medleys that are trademarks of any Genesis concert.
Whether it be for nostalgia's sake or for pure enjoyment, I've listened to this set repeatedly. Highly recommended! The box also includes a bonus 2-disc set of period b-sides and rare recordings for a total of thirteen discs. It is clear from the first notes of an Earth shatteringly clear "Looking For Someone" on Trespass through the resonating ending chorus of "It" on The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway that the box benefited the most out of the three sets from long time Genesis Producer Nick Davis' remixing.
Lost moments, musical tidbits, and sound effects find new life in these wonderfully restored masterpieces! Although, like the prior to boxes, some so-called 'purists' despise the concept of remixing from the original multi-track tapes, the end product is nothing short of stunning. Some 40 years after the band's own genesis, these recordings are so clean and clear that they sound as if they could have been recorded yesterday!
The hiss is gone, the flatness is gone, and what is left is almost like a religious experience for any Genesis fan who had been relegated to the old versions for decades. Overall, the surround and stereo mixes are a delight, despite one or two moments that seem quite different from the originals Even one moment where I cannot be sure, but the vocal track seems like it may be from an alternate take!
Despite this, I find it extremely difficult to cast any negative comments on an otherwise near flawless collection. Of course, if the new mixes and surround sound was wasn't enough, the rare audio tracks and rare video is certainly worth the price of admission alone. Without question, the highlight of this box was the inclusion of the never-before-released "Genesis Plays Jackson" tapes, a series of four mono demo recordings available in fake stereo and surround due to the limitations of the original source tape made circa for an ill-fated BBC documentary on painter Michael Jackson no, not the 'King of Pop!

Many of these invasions repeated the earlier large-scale slaughters of local populations. As a result, Genghis Khan and his empire have a fearsome reputation in local histories. Beyond his military accomplishments, Genghis Khan also advanced the Mongol Empire in other ways. He decreed the adoption of the Uyghur script as the Mongol Empire's writing system. He also practised meritocracy and encouraged religious tolerance in the Mongol Empire, unifying the nomadic tribes of Northeast Asia.
Present-day Mongolians regard him as the founding father of Mongolia. This brought relatively easy communication and trade between Northeast Asia, Muslim Southwest Asia, and Christian Europe , expanding the cultural horizons of all three areas. This position was contested by the rival Tayichi'ud clan, who descended directly from Ambaghai. When the Tatars grew too powerful after , the Jin switched their support from the Tatars to the Keraites.
Little is known about Genghis Khan's early life, due to the lack of contemporary written records. The few sources that give insight into this period often contradict. While heading home, his father ran into the neighboring Tatars , who had long been Mongol enemies, and they offered him food that poisoned him. But the tribe refused this and abandoned the family, leaving it without protection. With the help of a sympathetic guard, he escaped from the ger yurt at night by hiding in a river crevice.
Soon, Jelme and Bo'orchu joined forces with him. They and the guard's son Chilaun eventually became generals of Genghis Khan. At this time, none of the tribal confederations of Mongolia were united politically, and arranged marriages were often used to solidify temporary alliances. As was common for powerful Mongol men, Genghis Khan had many wives and concubines. Each camp also contained junior wives, concubines, and even children. It was the job of the Kheshig Mongol imperial guard to protect the yurts of Genghis Khan's wives.
The guards had to pay particular attention to the individual yurt and camp in which Genghis Khan slept, which could change every night as he visited different wives. This left doubt as to who the father of the child was, because her captor took her as a "wife" and could have possibly impregnated her. Genghis Khan took Yesui with him when he set out on his final expedition against the Tangut empire.
However, Dayir Usan later retracted his surrender but he and his subjects were eventually subdued, his possessions plundered, and he himself killed. She was a renowned beauty on the plains. She was originally a favored concubine of Inanch Bilge khan and after his death, she became the consort of his son Tayang Khan.
Since Tayang Khan was a useless ruler, Juerbiesu was in control of almost all power in Naiman politics. After Genghis Khan destroyed the Naiman tribe and Tayang Khan was killed, Juerbiesu made several offensive remarks regarding Mongols, describing their clothes as dirty and smelly. Yet, she abruptly rescinded her claims and visited Genghis Khan's tent alone. He questioned her about the remarks but was immediately attracted to her beauty.
After spending the night with him, Juerbiesu promised to serve him well and he took her as one of his empresses. Her status was only inferior to Khulan and Borte. In the early 12th century, the Central Asian plateau north of China was divided into several prominent tribal confederations , including Naimans , Merkits , Tatars , Khamag Mongols , and Keraites , that were often unfriendly towards each other, as evidenced by random raids, revenge attacks, and plundering.
Before this, they were blood brothers anda vowing to remain eternally faithful. Threatened by this rise, Jamukha attacked Temujin in with an army of 30, troops. Around the year , the Jin initiated an attack against their formal vassal, the Tatars , with help from the Keraites and Mongols. Around , the main rivals of the Mongol confederation traditionally the "Mongols" were the Naimans to the west, the Merkits to the north, the Tanguts to the south, and the Jin to the east. He delegated authority based on merit and loyalty, rather than family ties.
When he defeated rival tribes, he did not drive away their soldiers and abandon their civilians. Instead, he took the conquered tribe under his protection and integrated its members into his own tribe. He would even have his mother adopt orphans from the conquered tribe, bringing them into his family. Senggum , son of Toghrul Wang Khan , envied Genghis Khan's growing power and affinity with his father.
He allegedly planned to assassinate Genghis Khan. Although Toghrul was allegedly saved on multiple occasions by Genghis Khan, he gave in to his son  and became uncooperative with Genghis Khan. Genghis Khan learned of Senggum's intentions and eventually defeated him and his loyalists.
One of the later ruptures between Genghis Khan and Toghrul was Toghrul's refusal to give his daughter in marriage to Jochi , Genghis Khan's first son. This was disrespectful in Mongolian culture and led to a war. Toghrul allied with Jamukha , who already opposed Genghis Khan's forces. However, the dispute between Toghrul and Jamukha, plus the desertion of a number of their allies to Genghis Khan, led to Toghrul's defeat.
Jamukha escaped during the conflict. This defeat was a catalyst for the fall and eventual dissolution of the Keraite tribe. Jamukha's assumption of this title was the final breach with Genghis Khan, and Jamukha formed a coalition of tribes to oppose him.
Before the conflict, several generals abandoned Jamukha, including Subutai , Jelme 's well-known younger brother. After several battles, Jamukha was turned over to Genghis Khan by his own men in Genghis Khan had killed the men who betrayed Jamukha, stating that he did not want disloyal men in his army. Jamukha refused the offer, saying that there can only be one sun in the sky, and he asked for a noble death.
The custom was to die without spilling blood, specifically by having one's back broken. Jamukha requested this form of death, although he was known to have boiled his opponents' generals alive.
The part of the Merkit clan that sided with the Naimans were defeated by Subutai , who was by then a member of Genghis Khan's personal guard and later became one of Genghis Khan's most successful commanders. The Naimans' defeat left Genghis Khan as the sole ruler of the Mongol steppe — all the prominent confederations fell or united under his Mongol confederation.
Accounts of Genghis Khan's life are marked by claims of a series of betrayals and conspiracies. These include rifts with his early allies such as Jamukha who also wanted to be a ruler of Mongol tribes and Wang Khan his and his father's ally , his son Jochi , and problems with the most important shaman , who allegedly tried to drive a wedge between him and his loyal brother Khasar.
His military strategies showed a deep interest in gathering intelligence and understanding the motivations of his rivals, exemplified by his extensive spy network and Yam route systems. He seemed to be a quick student, adopting new technologies and ideas that he encountered, such as siege warfare from the Chinese. He was also ruthless, demonstrated by his tactic of measuring against the linchpin , used against the tribes led by Jamukha.
As a result, by , Genghis Khan had managed to unite or subdue the Merkits , Naimans , Mongols , Keraites, Tatars , Uyghurs , and other disparate smaller tribes under his rule. This was a monumental feat. It resulted in peace between previously warring tribes, and a single political and military force.
The union became known as the Mongols. At a Khuruldai , a council of Mongol chiefs, Genghis Khan was acknowledged as Khan of the consolidated tribes and took the new title "Genghis Khan". According to the Secret History of the Mongols, the chieftains of the conquered tribes pledged to Genghis Khan by proclaiming:. We will throw ourselves like lightning on your enemies. We will bring you their finest women and girls, their rich tents like palaces. Genghis Khan was a Tengrist , but was religiously tolerant and interested in learning philosophical and moral lessons from other religions.
Muqali then reported on the two to Genghis Khan who issued the following decree on their behalf: "They truly are men who pray to Heaven. I should like to support them with clothes and food and make them chiefs.
I'm planning on gathering many of this kind of people. While praying to Heaven, they should not have difficulties imposed on them. To forbid any mistreatment, they will be authorized to act as darqan possessor of immunity. He thanked Qiu Chuji for accepting his invitation and asked if Qiu Chuji had brought the medicine of immortality with him. Qiu Chuji said there was no such thing as a medicine of immortality but that life can be extended through abstinence.
Genghis Khan appreciated his honest reply and asked Qiu Chuji who it is that calls him eternal heavenly man, he himself or others. Kublai Khan had already met Haiyun in and been swayed towards Buddhism. All the decrees use the same formula and state that Genghis Khan first gave the decree of exemption. I have given this decree to the Shaolin elder to carry it. According to Juvaini, Genghis Khan allowed religious freedom to Muslims during his conquest of Khwarezmia "permitting the recitation of the takbir and the azan ".
Kublai Khan revived the decree in after Muslims refused to eat at a banquet. He forbade Halal butchering and circumcision. The decree of Kublai Khan was revoked after a decade. Genghis Khan met Wahid-ud-Din in Afghanistan in and asked him if the prophet Muhammad predicted a Mongol conqueror. He was initially pleased with Wahid-ud-Din but then dismissed him from his service saying "I used to consider you a wise and prudent man, but from this speech of yours, it has become evident to me that you do not possess complete understanding and that your comprehension is but small".
During the political rise of Genghis Khan, the Mongol Empire created by Genghis Khan and his allies shared its western borders with the Western Xia dynasty of the Tanguts. To the east and south was the Jin dynasty , founded by the Manchurian Jurchens , who ruled northern China as well as being the traditional overlords of the Mongolian tribes for centuries.
Genghis Khan organized his people, army, and his state to first prepare for war with Western Xia, or Xi Xia, which was close to the Mongolian lands.
He correctly believed that the more powerful young ruler of the Jin dynasty would not come to the aid of Xi Xia. When the Tanguts requested help from the Jin dynasty, they were refused. Wanyan Jiujin, the field commander of the Jin army, made a tactical mistake in not attacking the Mongols at the first opportunity.
Instead, the Jin commander sent a messenger, Ming'an , to the Mongol side, who defected and told the Mongols that the Jin army was waiting on the other side of the pass. At this engagement fought at Yehuling , the Mongols massacred hundreds of thousands of Jin troops.
In , Genghis besieged, captured, and sacked the Jin capital of Zhongdu modern-day Beijing. This forced the Jin ruler, Emperor Xuanzong , to move his capital south to Kaifeng , abandoning the northern half of his empire to the Mongols.
The Jin dynasty collapsed in , after the siege of Caizhou. Genghis Khan decided to conquer the Qara Khitai and defeat Kuchlug, possibly to take him out of power.
