"For those of you contemplating whether to purchase the 2-disc Turn It on Again: Tour Edition or the 3-disc Platinum Collection, these are what songs are exclusive to each:

Turn It On Again:
Tell Me Why
No Reply At All
Man On The Corner
Inside And Out
Happy The Man

Platinum Collection:
Home By the Sea
Second Home By the Sea
Calling All Stations
Behind the Lines

In my opinion, the Platinum Collection is the better deal, and is the one that I bought."
Genesis' 1999 limp collection gets a superb makeover

"Genesis' October, 1999 release Turn it On Again - The Hits was re-released in time for the band's 2007 reunion tour in September of 2007.
The two discs in the set contains 34 songs and all but one of the tracks (the 1999 re-do of Carpet Crawlers) are freshly remixed by Genesis engineer Nick Davis, and features close to two and a half hours of music.
It also contains a 16-page booklet with a cool looking collage as well as the song titles and writing credits, what songs came from which albums, pictures of the album covers and thank you's.
Disc 1 is their most recent stuff from 1980 to 1991. We start with the 1980 album Duke's most famous track and this compilation's title cut "Turn It On Again". then we have five tracks from the 1991 US Top 5 album We Can't Dance (No Son of Mine (edited), I Can't Dance, Jesus He Knows Me, Hold on My Heart which were all the big hits from the album and the album cut "Tell Me Why"). Then we have five tracks from 1986's Top 3 album Invisible Touch (the album's chart-topping title cut, Throwing It All Away, Tonight Tonight Tonight(edited), Land of Confusion and In Too Deep all of which were singles). Then there are three tracks from the 1983 Top 10 self-titled effort a/k/a The Shapes Album (the atmospheric "Mama" (here in edited single form with some bits I don't think I ever heard on any version prior to this), the US Top 10 hit "That's All" and Illegal Alien (remixed for this collection)). Then we have two tracks from the first Genesis album to reach the US Top 10 called Abacab (first is the album's title cut (here in single edit form) and then "No Reply at All"). The first disc ends with the 1999 re-recording of the 1974 album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway's classic cut "The Carpet Crawlers" dubbed "Carpet Crawlers 99" and is a nice, unique re-recording of the classic Lamb Lies Down album track (this is the only piece on this compilation which was NOT remixed).
Disc two covers 1970-97. We start with "Paperlate" from the UK 3 X 3 EP and the original US edition of the Top 10 album Three Sides Live. Then we pick up with two more tracks from 1981's Abacab ("Keep it Dark" and "Man On the Corner"). Then we have two more tracks from 1980's Duke ("Duchess" and the US Top 20 hit "Misunderstanding"). The band's first US Gold selling Top 20 album, 1978's And Then There Were Three is represented by two tracks ("Many Too Many" and the US Top 30 hit "Follow You Follow Me"). 1977's Top 30 charting Wind and Wuthering is represented by "Afterglow" and "Your Own Special Way". Next is two tracks from the 1977 UK released EP called Spot the Pigeons. First is "Pigeons" and then "Inside and Out" (the only other way to get these tracks is to buy either the Genesis 1976-82 6-CD/6-DVD box set OR buy the Genesis Archives 2 1976-1992 box set). The band's first US Top 40 album A Trick of the Tail is represented by the album's title cut. Then 1974's The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is represented by the full version of "Counting Out Time" (the remixed version on Platinum Collection was edited by 10 seconds). 1973's Selling England by the Pound is represented by "I Know What I Like". Next is the single track "Happy the Man" (which was not on an album and is only available on the Genesis archives 1967-75 box set so this is a nice taster of the rarities on the Gabriel years box set). The 1970 album Trespass is represented by the first half of the centerpiece "The Knife". We close things with the track "Congo" from the band's poorly received 1997 album Calling All Stations (which featured Ray wilson in Phil Collins' microphone stand).
This is another great start point for those who want to either discover Genesis or rediscover them in a new light. Or if one chooses, start with The Platinum Collection (which is now out of print in the US so try and find it). Turn it On Again The Hits (2007 Tour Edition) trumps the 1999 single disc dreked version and, like The Platinum Collection, is a stellar look back on one of rock's best bands.
