Long standing UK Genesis tribute have a new live album coming soon with sleeve notes by Steve Hackett. You can get a free download of a great version of Stagnation on their website www.regenesis-music.com/.
I don't know why, but there it is.

I gotta say, I just do not see the point in tribute bands doing live albums of the bands they immitate at all. You can't beat the real thing on that score so why would anyone want to buy something like this?

To add, Regenesis are/were a great tribute band. No idea what they are like now. Think I first saw them in 1995 or something when a guy called Glynn Protheroe was on lead vocals. The whole band bar the drummer and keyboard player have since left.
The best Genesis tribute band have to be 'The Musical Box'

ReGenesis have long since moved on from Glynn Protheroe - Tony Patterson has been the band's vocalist for at least 10 years now. Curiously, RG's main website URL isn't working but there is another URL that allows access and it appears the band are taking a break of sorts (they've done this before and then returned). Other UK Genesis (and/or Collins) tribute bands include "G2enesis"; "In The Cage" and "Mama".

On the issue of live recordings, well, Brit Floyd has done exactly that with its DVD and CD and if it's well done I can absolutely see/hear the reason for doing it. I have the DVD and, as stated elsewhere on this forum, the sound reproduction (distinguished from playing style and musical phrasing) is better than the stereo track on Pink Floyd's Pulse - at least to my ears.

The ReGenesis live CDs are patchy. I have the first four but not the latest. Some of it is very good whilst some of it is less convincing. But, nothing so bad that there is any inclination to get rid of any of the CDs. As it is unlikely Genesis will ever perform in anger again, the only real channel open to fans of the music is through tribute bands. Same with Pink Floyd.

One reason why GOOD recordings by tribute bands may well be worth having is when material is performed that either wasn't performed very often by the original band and/or there aren't any (known) quality recordings by the original band of particular material. For example, Pink Floyd's "Animals" appears to be a case in point and, based on the content of the Experience / Immersion releases, it seems reasonable to conclude that there also isn't a complete live performance of "Wish You Were Here" that Floyd feel able to release. In my opinion, the version of "Pigs (3 Different Ones)" on the Brit Floyd DVD is truly excellent and is not dissimilar to the way it was performed by Pink Floyd on the '77 tour (I have a half decent bootleg to make the comparison :)). To my knowledge, the only live performance of a song from Animals that has been officially released (excluding tribute bands) is "Dogs" on Roger Waters' "In The Flesh" live CD/DVD. It's possible "Sheep" may eventually appear if RW decides to release a CD/DVD of his Dark Side of the Moon tour. I don't think any "live" material from Animals has ever been officially released under the Pink Floyd banner.

New ReGenesis gigs have been announced for October 2012. According to Tony Patterson's blog (vox), the 40th anniversary of "Foxtrot" will be celebrated.

The old URL for the website appears to have been usurped which means access, so far as I can tell, is only via the following link: www.freewebs.com/regenesismusic/

A trip to the Robin it is, then. I would still prefer to see Glynn Protheroe back in the fold, though, Tony Patterson doesn't do it for me at all.
I don't know why, but there it is.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening. Not flawless but still very good and worth making the effort (and for me, it was a huge effort - long story).

The set list was:

01 The Return Of The Giant Hogweed
02 Firth Of Fifth
03 Harold The Barrel
04 Stagnation
-- tease - first few notes of That's All (with humourous pre-amble)
05 The Musical Box
06 The Knife (complete with mic stand used as machine gun - like Fish on Marillion's Forgotten Sons circa 1983/4)

07 Watcher Of The Skies
08 Time Table
09 Get 'Em Out By Friday
10 Can-Utility And The Coastliners
11 Horizons
12 Supper's Ready

Encore:
13 The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
14 Fly On A Windshield
15 Broadway Melody Of 1974
16 I Know What I Like (In My Wardrobe)
17 The Carpet Crawlers
