A very good edited summary of the band's early live work, up to and including "Foxtrot".

Genesis appeal on stage was of course enhanced by Gabriel's theatrics, it would be good if archive footage of this period could be found and committed to DVD. In the meanwhile, "Live" on CD will have to suffice.

The sound is sharp and well recorded, while the tracks themselves are pretty much faithful to the studio originals. This of course then begs the question with any live album, does it offer anything over and above the original versions of the tracks. Answer, probably not.

A recording of "Supper's ready" from the recordings which were used for this album is at time of writing available for download from the "Genesis Museum" website, although you do have to look carefully for it!
