5 stars What a selection! This has got to be the greatest box set EVER! The first two discs are taken up entirely by a full length version of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway being played live, which (seeing as it's my favourite album of all time) is a fairly good introduction! After that the third disc is dominated mainly by live rarities and B sides from the Gabriel era hay-day, including two rare Genesis singles Happy The Man and Twilight Alehouse, the former being a cracker for fans and the latter being the greatest Genesis song you never heard. The final disc contains a selection of the bands earliest work, including throw-aways from the Trespass album and demos from before even the bands debut album, in which some interesting and great music is to be found. A real gem for any fans and a great listen for prog fans in general. 5 stars.
