4 stars By their very nature live albums usually contain previously recorded material therefore they would have to be something really special to earn five stars. Genesis Live could have come into that category if it had been released as a double album, and if it had included ''Supper's Ready''. Live doubles were all the rage back in the day with the likes of Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Wishbone Ash all releasing their own versions. Of course, both ELP and Yes had to go one better than the others! However after reading a fellow member's review of Genesis Live I appreciate that Genesis' record company was reluctant to take such a risk with a relatively obscure band. Pity. Anyway, Genesis Live contains faithful reproductions of five of the band's greatest songs and even if it's not quite a 5-star release, it is nonetheless an excellent symphonic album.
