2 stars The music here is very much in the Gabriel-era GENESIS mode complete with the singer changing into different costumes on stage. This is a live recording from July of 1979 not long after their debut album was released. There is a fair amount of mellotron on here as well. The big disappointment is with the sound quality here, it's poor, very muddy.The vocals seem really low in the mix and honestly I never would have purchased this cd if i'd known it would sound like this. It completely takes away from my enjoyment of it. Too bad because this is melodic, lush and quite impressive from what I can take from this show.

2 stars because of the sound quality. I should have got their debut album instead.
