A new 14-disc box set featuring the solo work of Steve Hackett is set to be released in the autumn.
The box will be called Premonitions and will cover his solo recordings for Charisma Records between 1975-1983, during which time the Genesis guitarist put out six albums for the label.
Mark Powell has put this new set together and we will have to wait for more details in terms of what else will fill up the 14-discs, although as reported on PROG it has been confirmed that Steven Wilson has remixed the Please Don’t Touch and Spectral Mornings in 5.1 surround sound (approved by Mr Hackett) and this will be included as part of the content. ‘Pseudo’ surround mixes have also been created for Voyage of the Acolyte and Defector using Penteo upmix software, since the original multi-track tapes are missing for those albums.
Premonitions is due for release on 16 October 2015
