5 stars Well after what I would consider an excruciating amount of wait-time, this gem has been finally released. First the description: 4 CD set which contains 2 CD's from "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" (Live in LA), 1 CD of live stuff mostly from 1973 including single releases of "Happy The Man" and "Twilight Alehouse", and 1 CD from the late 60's (1968 mostly). "The Lamb Lies Down..." is exceptionally well recorded and for the most part this concert is a close replica to the studio version. I am very pleased that the Gabriel's dialogue with the audience was not deleted from this recording as it adds so much more to the listening enjoyment. The third CD is the highlight for me and in many ways completes the GENESIS Live recording released back in the 70's. The treat is of course hearing "Suppers Ready" with the wonderful introduction. The fourth CD is from the GENESIS era with Anthony PHILLIPS and contains many excellent unreleased BBC tracks which never made their 1st or second releases. This box set is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone who has a deep love for early GENESIS... Walking Across The Sitting Room I turn the television on....
