UPC 081227955502; copyright says 2007. Once upon a time, Tony, Mike, and producer Nick Davis undertook remixing the entire Genesis back catalogue. These were released originally in four boxed sets from spring 2007 til mid-2009. The first two boxed sets covered 1976-1997 collectively and the core contents of those two boxes were released as standalone items. In Europe and elsewhere, all of the albums in the boxed sets, except the 4th one which was dedicated to their official live album releases, were released as single discs roughly six months following the release of the corresponding boxed set. This edition of 1976s A TRICK OF THE TAIL is a USA re-issue of the aforementioned European single disc edition, released in a batch consisting of the rest of the first boxed set (covering 1976-1981). This batch was released in 2015. The contents of the boxed set covering 1970-1974 were also released as single disc editions for the U.S. market a few months earlier in late 2014, with the except of one because the U.S. copyright holder of 1970s' TRESPASS has no affiliation with the U.S. copyright holder of Genesis' output from 1971 onward. The box set covering 1983-1997 was not released in single disc format in the U.S.. Personally I think these single disc reissues of Genesis remixed back catalogue are entirely pointless. The remixing was a neat idea given the oncoming ubiquity of 5.1 surround sound systems. The newer mixes are not necessarily bad, but they are by no means superior and in some cases are tastelessly done, this one being the primary example. You can look elsewhere on the web for countless varied bemoanings regarding this remix as well as the others'. I mainly wrote this as a timeline for those who weren't aware that Genesis remixed their back catalogue or caught on way after the fact.
