It was 40 years ago that Genesis performed in this studio and 10 years ago that I did our first transfer of this 16mm film in PAL format (720×576). The results of this effort along with the generosity at meeksgenesis, SAB for the audio work, RH for the artwork, and a host of others well documented, created a masterpiece that has been used countless times after on TV, bootlegs, “review” DVDs, and even the official Genesis boxed sets. Who would have thought that our work would go so far? Well, I am here to try to push the envelope a little further…I give you Shepperton HD.

16mm is used for amateur (and even professional) filmmaking so there are many more transfer options than for 8mm. But the best of the best is the Spirit DataCine in 2K (2048 pixel CCD resolution) and is used for Hollywood films, as well as PG’s recent Secret World Blu-Ray DVD. Of course, it is far more common nowadays to see 35mm, transferred by the Spirit in 4K since the film is bigger. They also make an 8mm gate for the Spirit, but because the smaller film size can only use 1K of the resolution (less than HD) this caused debates as to whether it is worthwhile and makes this 8mm gate extremely expensive and almost unheard of. You may also notice that the gate on the Spirit is a little bigger than the previous transfer, maybe 3-5% or so of the extra image around the edges. This is still a 4:3 aspect ratio, but more of the stage can be seen than ever before.

The definition we are presented with here is amazing HD (1440×1080), and a beautifully low contrast image. If you thought it was impossible to see more detail than the DVD we created 10 years back, your eyes will feast on this. Cymbal grooves, wood grain, each string on a 12-string guitar…it’s all here. Of course, in addition to even more film grain, we can see new imperfections like hairs and dust. But I noticed that most of these imperfections switch as the camera view switches, and then switch back when the angle switches back. This means is that these are a result of the original film recording/creation/editing, and are permanently on the print I have and cannot be removed. I did “clean” some of these digitally, but this is an inexact process and I estimate I was able to remove only about 30% of these imperfections.

The Spirit allowed for better color adjustment during the transfer, so I had less work to do on the color this time. However, the color in this film is kinda a nightmare. One example of the color issues occurs at the end of The Musical Box, where three separate shots show a perfect black background, a cut to a shot with a blue background, followed by a shot that is balanced towards green…all in a matter of a few seconds. So not only has the film been spliced (each splice mark can be seen in HD) between films with a different color balance, but there is sometimes a different color on the right side of the film than the left side of the film in the same scene. I corrected as much as realistically possible, but it is far from perfect.

Because of the amazing video transfer, I felt that the audio was not a good match in quality. This 16mm film uses “optical” audio, printed down the side of the film like waveforms. This is common for 16mm and fine for dialogue, but not good for music. And unfortunately, there is no great machine to get a better audio transfer, and no great audio source has been discovered even after all these years. So I decided to resync it. Of course, there are stories before some songs that could not be redubbed, so they are there in their original form. But I estimate that I was able to achieve about a 90% match for the entire film. I used various soundboards and radio shows, switched and layered and cheated, and fine-tuned to get it as close as possible. Thanks to Willem for help reviewing my work and suggesting alternate audio sources, and to Dave Raphael for some amazing original artwork as well as suggestions on the film itself.

 

Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins (both natural leaders of the band called Genesis -different approaches and styles-yet quite complimentary when in sync) Notice how they work together on these two different live versions of the same track. Please keep an eye on the histrionic antics of Mr. Gabriel versus the football player charm of Phil Collins. Notice, if you dare, that Gabriel embodied the spirit and inner life of each track while Collins was the carnival barker and erstwhile drummer. Imagine if they could have found a way to work together a bit longer. Peter Gabriel was better off on his own based on the prevailing direction of Genesis under the leadership of the remaining 3 and the artistic visionary and shamanistic creative Peter Gabriel had become-(listen closely to Solsbury Hill).

“This is why I listen to old music. That’s Phil Collins in overalls behind the drums, pounding out time signatures that would confound Einstein, long before he was writing songs for Disney. That’s Steve Hackett doing 2-handed tapping years before Van Halen made it a household thing. That’s Mike Rutherford playing a Rickenbacker double-neck guitar long before Rickenbacker actually thought to make one. That’s Peter Gabriel in costume long before his “Sledgehammer” redefined MTV. That’s Tony Banks reminding us that classical virtuosity has its place in Progressive Rock. If they made music that made me feel like this today, I’d listen to it.”

The official Solsbury Hill video. Directed by Graham Dean.

 

Having left Genesis the previous summer, Peter’s first solo album arrived in February 1977. He was 26. With legendary producer Bob Ezrin taking charge the intention was to make something more direct and tougher than what had come before. Solsbury Hill was the first single to be taken from the album, though the video you see here was created much later “just messing around at Real World with a painter friend of mine Graham Dean.” says Peter.


 

Watch this live performance of “Carpet Crawlers” from Genesis’ DVD “When in Rome” from 2007. The song was originally from the 1974 Genesis concept album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.
