4 stars All songs featured in this live set are much better than their original studio version. The band successfully demonstrated the energy and virtuosity to make this record as an excellent live performance. Gabriel's voice is much powerful here. I initially did not like Watcher Of The Skies, but after hearing this live version I started to like the studio version from Foxtrot album (1972). Get 'Em Out By Friday that sounded a bit boring with the studio version, is now performed much morel lively here. The Return Of The Giant Hogweed with a driving guitar work is really great. I had already liked this song even at the studio version from Nursery Cryme album. The Musical Box was the first song that introduced me to the band from Nursery Cryme album. The vibes of the song are really dynamic. I enjoy the way Gabriel sings here. "Play me my song ." oh man . what a memorable segment! The Knife introduced me to the band's second album Trespass (1970). It's truly a masterpiece song by Genesis.

For Genesis fans or those who love prog music in the seventies, this album is a must. You should not miss this excellent live album. Keep on proggin' .!

Progressively yours, GW
