Genesis Archive 1967–75 is a 1998 boxed set by progressive rock band Genesis.

This set features live recordings and rarities from when Peter Gabriel was the lead singer. The first two of the four discs consist of a previously unreleased live recording of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway from 1975. The remaining discs contain performances from an unreleased live concert from London's Rainbow Theatre in 1973, demos, rare single tracks and 1970 BBC Sessions. All 52 tracks (besides the last 3 on disc 3) had been previously unreleased. The entire set is arranged in reverse chronological order.

Some of Peter Gabriel's vocals on the live recordings were re-recorded by the singer in 1998 due to technical problems with the recording as well as elaborate costumes that often muffled his voice.[1] Guitarist Steve Hackett re-recorded some guitar parts as well.[1]

Genesis Archive 1967–75 reached #35 in the UK.
