4 stars Due to many different reasons I never witnessed a GENESIS gig in the Seventies. When HACKETT left GENESIS he became my guitar-hero because I was fed up with the poppy prog from 'Collins-GENESIS'. I've seen many concerts from HACKETT, I enjoyed every gig very much but it lasted until a few years ago that HACKETT started to perform more early - and mid-GENESIS footage. So finally I could enjoy some of the 'mid-GENESIS-magic'! From all the HACKETT DVD's that has been released until now, this is the most exciting and varied one. His band is outstanding with lots of fine instrumental breaks and musical surprises and HACKETT's guitar play has become so mature and distinctive after all those years: his volume-pedal play in "Fly on a windshield", the spectacular sound in "Slogans" and "Air conditioned nightmare", his moving solo in "Everyday" and of course the wonderful, progrock #1 guitarsolo in "Firth of fifth"! And don't forget the acoustic "Blood on the rooftops" and the splendid GENESIS cover "Los Endos" and .. and ... and ... essential for any progrock fan!!!
