Prog Reviewer
5 stars Almost all the songs in this album (except "Cinema Show") were recorded during the "Wind & Wuthering" tour in 1977, with the excellent drummer Chester Thompson playing his first tour with GENESIS. "Cinema Show" was recorded during the "A Trick of the Tail" tour, with Bill Bruford (another excellent drummer) as guest in that tour. This is one of the best live albums I have heard, despite Steve Hackett`s guitar was mixed lower. Phil Collins sings in his own style the songs from Gabriel`s period, and he did a very good job.He also sings very good the songs from the "Trick" and "Wind" albums. I think that by 1976-77 GENESIS reached their highest point as a concert band. Gabriel`s fans missed (and still miss) his theatrical vocals and costumes, but by 1976-77 GENESIS was mainly a band which played music, and they played it very well. Gabriel`s vocals and costumes were replaced by laser lights, with Collins being himself most of the time, doing some "theatrical vocals" in his own style when the music needed it. This live version of "Supper`s Ready"was considered as the "definitive" version by Banks/Collins/Rutherford in the eighties.
