➦ Genesis: Wind & Wuthering (1976) - CD releases


GENERAL NOTES

All tracks arranged by Genesis. Produced by David Hentschel & Genesis

SHORT FACTS

Wind & Wuthering on the CD was released by the three record labels:

  • Virgin/Charisma (U.K. and Europe) (CD Reference: U.K. CDSCD 4005)
  • ATCO (USA and Canada) (CD Reference: U.S: SD 38 100-2, Canada: CD 38100)

The first album releases on the CD appeared in 1985, in the UK and Europe. The first CD release of this album was issued by Virgin/Charisma Records. The U.S. ATCO releases of the album appear to be released for the first time on the CD in 1986.

In the United States "Wind & Wuthering" has also been issued in a CD long box packaging. For more details, please click here.


The UK and the U.S. CD releases:

The U.S. version of the album issued by ATCO in the North America has a slightly different track listing. Tracks 7 and 8 are merged together into a single track. The total time for merged track is 7:12. The U.S. CD has also different track time listed on the rear artwork.

The CD inserts of ATCO release are differ to the UK issue too. The front insert on ATCO release does not have a cropped cover, whether the UK Virgin/Charisma release does.

The North American ATCO CD release has also a statement printed on the rear insert:

"The music on this compact disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. We have attempted to preserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of its high resolution, however, the Compact Disc can reveal limitations of the source tape."

The UK Virgin/Charisma release, however, has only a one single line printed near the bottom: "This Compact disc is not digitally recorded."


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.


SINGLES

This album has never been promoted by the CD single. Originally the album was released on vinyl in 1976 and promoted by vinyl singles, however, in 1988 Virgin released a long delayed CD single with tracks from the Wind & Wuthering sessions, which the band felt did not fit the feel of the album. Here is the entry for the single.
