About this deal

Sum Of The Parts” is the official authorised story of Genesis made with the full co-operation of the band members. The first irritating bit is when Tony drops a slightly unfortunate comment about the Firth Of Fifth solo. The impression that Phil's arrival changed the band immediately and may have been more decisive than Steve's is illustrated quite clearly and definitely understandable – Steve's influence was much more subtle and slower while Phil's drumming had an immediate impact on the band.

Fans don't really get to know or see anything new – until a snippet from the famous Roundhouse recordings.

Hackett's screentime was also noticeably minimal and his fans were mostly supportive of his complaint, posting hundreds of comments hailing his music and career. This is the release of the Genesis documentary televised on the 4th October 2014 on the TV channel BBC 2. First, the 'exciting news' turned out to be a new compilation without any new material – including the solo songs was the only new aspect.

However, at the end of the Gabriel era the interview scenes in that group configuration are few and far between – and even worse, it feels like Hackett was often cut out of the picture on purpose. Along with R-Kive and the re-release of Three Sides Live, the BBC documentary will also be released on DVD and Blu-ray under the title Sum Of The Parts in November 2014.It was the first time drummer and singer Phil Collins, former singer Peter Gabriel, keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist Mike Rutherford and guitarist Steve Hackett had reunited since the Six of the Best reunion concert (1982). Over the course of the documentary, it's increasingly clear that 4-5 of the interviewees and experts are featured strikingly often. Ranjit, a farmer in India, takes on the fight of his life when he demands justice for his 13-year-old daughter, the victim of a brutal gang rape. Following its broadcast, guitarist Steve Hackett expressed his displeasure, describing the documentary as a "biased account of Genesis history" that "totally ignores" his solo work.
