5 stars A few weeks ago I managed to get Genesis Live Shepperton 1973. DVD video. The quality of the picture is excellent, but the sound is very poor (general characteristic of early Genesis footages), so poor that even the incredible Gabriel-led Genesis with their early repertoire could not improve the general impression, which remained very disappointing. Fortunately, a friend of mine told me about the new SACD/DVD edition of A Trick of the Tail, with a video bonus including newly remastered version of legendary Genesis In Concert 1976, a relatively short film/footage from the performances in Glasgow and Stafford, but done with such inspiration and enthusiasm that it is probably one of the best visual expressions of progressive rock in the seventies. The sound is excellent, not in DTS, but nicely preserving the spirit and excitement of the original atmosphere. During the earlier listening, I could not notice the Crimson-like drumming of Bill Bruford in Supper's Ready - definitely the pinnacle of the whole film. Great show, great film. Highly recommended for all lovers of progressive rock, especially those preferring early days of Genesis. Five stars of course.
