Like an earlier set issued in April, the next box features all the albums released during the specified period, augmented with a bonus-packed DVD for each.
The set begins with a self-titled 1983 album, best known for hits like "That's All" and "Mama." The DVD includes four music videos and rehearsals for a 1983 tour. The band's biggest album, 1986's "Invisible Touch," is expanded with five videos, a tour documentary and a performance on "The Old Grey Whistle Test."
The DVD component of the group's final album with Collins, 1991's "We Can't Dance," sports five videos and a TV special spotlighting writing sessions for the project. "Calling All Stations," the 1998 album featuring new vocalist Ray Wilson, will feature interview footage and live performances from Poland and Germany.
The box's ninth and 10th discs, "Extra Tracks," round up odds-and-ends such as "Do the Neurotic" and "On the Shoreline," plus 40 minutes from a 1983 concert at Knebworth in England and a 2000 acoustic performance of four songs at a tribute to Genesis manager Tony Smith.
