Prog Reviewer
4 stars Even if Peter Gabriel is not one of my favourite musicians (solo or as member of Genesis), this album is very good. The recording and the mixing are not very good (the audience sounds distant and some of the songs too), but at least in the sleeve notes Peter and the producer explain that this albums has studio overdubs ("cheating", as they call it!). So, it is an honest "live album with some studio ovedubs". The best songs from this album are: "Shock the Monkey", "Humdrum" (a very good version), "On the Air" and "Biko" (the side four of the L.P.). Tony Levin shines playing the bass guitar and the stick. And in some of the songs Jerry Marotta plays cymbals in contrast to the original studio versions which didn`t have cymbals.
