The tracks on the album include some classic Genesis compositions such as
Eleventh Earl of Mar and One for the Vine as well as several instrumentals that

Genesis have always been known for their sense of spectacle and their
groundbreaking live shows, as much as their ambitious studio albums like the
evergreen Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England By The Pound, and The Lamb

Lips, and Jeff Buckley.
