➦ Genesis: We Can't Dance (1991) - CD releases


GENERAL NOTES

Produced by Genesis and Nick Davis.

Recorded at The Farm, Surrey, England, between March and September 1991.

SHORT FACTS

We Can't Dance on the CD was released by the two record labels:

  • Virgin Records (U.K, Europe and Australia) (CD Reference: GEN CD3)
  • Atlantic Recording Corporation (USA and Canada) (CD Reference: U.S: 7 82344-2, Canada: CD 82344)

The CD was released Worldwide on 11 November 1991. Pre-release copies were given to the music shops and the Radio stations in the United States (as well as in the the UK) prior to the release. I should also mention that all European CD releases were manufactured with a coloured graphic CD label.

A special promotional box set was also manufactured during the release of the album. The box set was limited to 1500 copies. For more information about the box set, please click here.

Later, in 1992, a special collector's box named "The Invisible Series" has also been released. The box comes with "Jesus He Knows Me" CD single (CD Reference: GENDX 9) and an empty space for additional CD singles to collect. For more information about this series, please click here.

In the United States "We Can't Dance" has also been issued in a CD long box packaging. For more details, please click here.


PLEASE NOTE:

Further releases of this album after year 1999 are not presented. My collection of this album ends on the late 1990s releases. I also do not collect the remastered editions of the album.
