3 stars A decent Genesis live album with good renditions of a couple of tracks from Foxtrot, a couple from Nursery Cryme, and The Knife from Trespass. The main problem with the album is that it doesn't really add much to the studio renditions of these tracks; in particular, the editing out of Gabriel's stories introducing the songs means that it's in no way an accurate representation of the live Genesis experience at the time of recording. Plus, the early 70s recording quality means that the renditions of the songs aren't quite as clean and crystal-clear as the album versions. Sequence the tracks from the studio albums in the correct order, and record a clip of yourself saying "This is [song title]" in your best Peter Gabriel voice to slot between them, and presto: you already own this album. Fun, but in no way vital.
