2 stars The songs are great, and this performance is just before Genesis hit their musical peak (The Lamb Lies on Broadway). Peter is crazy, wearing fox skin or flower on his head and Steve is (like always) playing beautiful on guitar.

So what's wrong with this DVD ?

The sound is awful, it feels like listening to the very low quality mp3. It hurts a lot because fragments of this concerts where remastered and used in Genesis Archive 1967-1975. Why the producents of this DVD didn't do that ?

The same thing is with picture quality. I know it was recorded in mid 70's but with today computers producents should ad least try to convert the picture to better quality.

"Genesis Live" is an obligatory DVD for band fans, but in ugly package made by some inexperienced rookies. I know that sound and picture (or their luck) will not discourage most of you to watch it but I can't give more than 2 stars (even if I love the performance).
