Album Overview

Platinum Collection is a career-spanning box set by British veteran progressive rock/pop rock band Genesis. It was released in 2004 in the UK and one year later in North America.

The set consists of three CDs that serve as an overview Genesis' career from their formative period with Peter Gabriel and Anthony Phillips, continuing through their period with Phil Collins as lead singer, to their most recent recordings with Ray Wilson as frontman. As with 1998's Genesis Archive 1967–75, this collection is mostly sequenced in reverse chronological order (apart from the fact that ...Calling All Stations...' title track is at the end of the first disc) for the purpose of providing precedence to the newer material. The majority of the tracks were also remixed by studio collaborator Nick Davis.

Featuring songs from every studio album (with the exception of their 1969 debut From Genesis to Revelation) from 1970's Trespass to 1997's ...Calling All Stations...Platinum Collection stands as the most comprehensive Genesis retrospective available. Upon its release, it reached #21 in the UK and #100 in the US.

From left to right, the cover features pictures used on the albums We Can't Dance (1991), Nursery Cryme (1971), A Trick of the Tail (1976), Foxtrot (1972), Duke (1980), and Invisible Touch (1986).
