2 stars A money-grabber released by Som Livre in the wake of Genesis visit to Brasil. Altough it cleary says in the cover "IN CONCERT" and "The Best Moments of the Brazilian '77 Tour", it is just an compilation of studio recordings.

The lame cover looks like Yes' Topographic Oceans made by Betty Swanwick's worst student. the back cover is even worse, with a mini Genesis discography that includes Steve Hackett's Voyage Of The Acolyte (?), and a musician listing that (among other mistakes) tottaly ignores the existence of a guy named Peter Gabriel (even though is him singing in almost the whole album).

Of the songs, what can I say? This is Genesis at their top. If you ignore that you were fooled expecting to buy a live album, and all the other gross mistakes made by Som Livre, you got yourself a pretty good compilation (but rather short), and a nice entry-album for anyone who never heard Genesis before (that's why 2 stars).

For anyone else, is a collector's only LP. It's poorly executed by Som Livre, short and with a horrible wanna-be cover, it only stand up as a rare, brazilian-only record.
