Genesis – R-Kive [Expanded]

Genesis – R-Kive [Expanded]

A 3-CD box set released in 2014. A compilation of Genesis tunes as well as songs from various solo projects and off-shoots. I have added another 26 tracks as bonuses.

I would like to have included Mike Rutherford’s “At The End Of The Day” and “Philadelphia Baby” by The Crawling King Snakes, which was a once-off project in 1985, featuring Robert Plant (from Led Zeppelin), Dave Edmunds, Paul Martinez and Phil Collins. I was unable to find them on Spotify, so I have added their Youtube videos below.

South African Chart History

Genesis | Peter Gabriel | Phil Collins

Mike & The Mechanics never made the South African charts despite having hits on the Radio 5, Capital 604 and Radio 702 charts.

Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including which he founded in 1999.
