5 stars Back in the seventies, 1976 indeed, I was on a holiday in Wales, travelling on a motorbike and camping in a leaky tent. Donīt ever do that in Wales!! So after we got all soaked in the neighbourhood of Snowdonia we decided to move southward to the Brecon Beacons, hoping for at least some dry weather. And so it turned out. In that village was a cinema where we watched two movies. First there was White Music by Rick Wakeman (almost immediately forgot what the movie was about, I only remember I didnīt like it), preceded by this movie by Genesis. Actually I was not very interested in Genesis by that time, I was more into Barclay James Harvest and Deep Purple. But I remember vividly that I was completely blown away by what I watched. This was real good music!!! This was totally different than Blackmore's masculine guitar riffs and endless soloing, this was melody, atmosphere, energy and tranquility. I was expecialy impressed by 'Entangled' which has always remained one of my all time Genesis classics. It is sung and played so well, I could hardly believe it. It was not until I saw the first dvd by Genesis that I started to realize how wonderful it would be if this movie would be published again as a dvd. Therefore I was flabbergasted when I learned that the movie was made part of the SE of 'Trick of the tail', my favourite album by the band. So now I can watch it time and time again, enjoying the weird but well-crafted tambourine act by mr. Collins, the great instrumental parts on 'Fly on a windshield' and 'Los Endos' and get the chills again with the acoustic guitars in 'Entangled'. This is by far the best Genesis movie I know and that is not only because it was the first I ever saw. It is simply the band at its peak, just recovering from Gabriels departure but confident that they had made the right choices.

Be sure to lay your hands on it, it's worth every minute!!
