Amazon Offers Genesis Vinyl Set

Got an(other) email from today. Usually they say something like "Since you bought that Star Wars figure for your kid at Christmas, we thought you'd want to buy this Star Wars lawn dart set" or some shit. I usually delete these emails right away.

But today this was the offer:

As someone who has purchased or rated music by Genesis, you might like to know that 1970-1975 [6 LP 180g Vinyl] will be released on April 14, 2009. Following the upgrade of the Genesis catalog with three comprehensive boxed sets of their entire studio output (plus bonus DVDs), Rhino brings the legendary band's early era back to its vinyl origins in style. Presented on 180 gram audiophile vinyl, the six-LP boxed set GENESIS: 1970-1975 features five landmark albums from the group's seminal Peter Gabriel-fronted era: Trespass, Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England By The Pound and the double concept LP The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.

Collected in a handsome, protective slipcase box, each of the five albums comes in its own heavyweight gatefold sleeve featuring the classic cover art faithfully reproduced from its original source. The set contains some of the band s most adventurous albums and chronicles Gabriel's groundbreaking tenure as frontman for Genesis, one of the top-selling recording acts of all time.

I won't be ordering this because I already have all of these releases on vinyl but I thought it was cool that this is even being offered!
