5 stars I had a vinyl copy of this, and miss it very dearly. The obvious one of these outtakes from Wind & Wuthering that would have fit in best on that album, Steve Hackett's "Inside and Out", bears some resemblance to some of his solo work, but adding very lovely vocals from Phil Collins and very spirited and exciting keyboards from Tony Banks, and of course one of Steve Hackett's signature solos. "Match of the Day" serves as somewhat of a missing link between Wind & Wuthering and ...And Then There Were Three... with an upbeat, jaunty "Eleventh Earl of Mar"-like romp, and "Deep In the Motherlode"-esque guitar tones. The other track, "Pigeons', sounds more like it came from "A Trick of the Tail'. And this EP isn't just loved by many just based on it's rarity - these are some classic Genesis songs whose relatively short running time can still be considered masterpiecey.
