Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Yes. Like the previous reviewers, I think that this is a very good song, one of the best songs that Genesis composed and recorded with Peter Gabriel. A very "dramatic" song, in some parts "Heavy", "Mysterious", "Dark", with music which very good describes the experiences of an alcoholic who doesn`t know how to stop his drinking.

The first time that I listened to this song it was a live version included in a bootleg, recorded in 1972, maybe during a B.B.C. session. It could have been very interesting for me to see Genesis playing this song live. That live version is better than the studio version in tension, more "heavy" than the studio version. The studio version was originally recorded in 1973, and it also was released as the B-side of the "I Know What I like" single in 1973. It seems that this is an old song, maybe composed in 1968 or even before that year. This song could have been a very good addition to their "Foxtrot" album, as it is more similar in style to the other songs of that album. The studio version was also released in their "Archives 1967-1975" Box Set in 1998.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars This is a real rarity! In August 1973 (and not in February 1974 as mentioned in several Genesis books) it was officially released as the B-side of the single I know What I Like, two months later the UK magazine Zig Zag published their October 1973 issue with the song Twilight Alehouse as a free one-sided flexi disc version (here on Prog Archives). And in 1976 it was re-issued as a free single to the first 1000 members of the Genesis Information. I knew this song from several bootlegs and it's also on the box Genesis Archive 1967-1975 in a slightly different version. I have always wondered why this wonderful, typically early Genesis composition had not been put on a studio album.

The track Twilight Alehouse (7.48) contains all the elements that made Genesis sound so unique and captivating: emotional vocals by Peter Gabriel, dynamic shifting moods (from mellow with twanging to heavy bombastic eruptions), powerful organ runs, delicate flute, varied electric guitar, inventive drum work play and an surprising final part, showing that Genesis succeeded to blend rock, classic, folk and even a bit psychedelia in a very fascinating way!

3 stars I know this song from a bootleg CD called "The Shepherd - Live in London 1970-1972" I bought from Germany in 1991. I still have that CD, it includes several non-abum tracks and surprisingly good ones too. One of them is this song which appeared also as the B-side of 'I Know What I Like'. The song existed at the time of Foxtrot, and I agree that it would have fit into that masterwork if there had been room for yet another track. (All the merrier for us fans to discover these gems from obscure places. The song has appeared here and there - this particular item is a one-sided flexi disc published by a magazine, informs our guaranteed Genesis specialist Erik Neuteboom - but it nevertheless has a rarity status.)

'Twilight Alehouse' is a dark, theatric miniature musical drama in the similar style you know from Trespass and Nursery Cryme albums. Somehow I see it closer in spirit to Trespass, perhaps because on Nursery Cryme and Foxtrot Genesis put on even a bigger prog gear; that is, this song (7:48) is not as epic as e.g. 'Fountain of Salmacis' or 'Can-Utility and the Coastliners'. It starts in a slow and creepy manner and the faster chorus and instrumental sections have quite aggressive and edgy guitar work from Hackett. There's some flute too.

The song is a pleasure for Gabriel-era fans, but I'd say the realization of it is a bit half baked, and I'm sure had they decided to take it on an album, they would have worked it further.

3 stars Twilight Alehouse is the best song Genesis ever released outside of a studio album, plain and simple. The real varying dynamics make this one a treat.

4 stars In fact you are more likely to find a copy of this as the flip side of "I know what I like" rather than this version which is hard to find and expensive.

4 stars B-side of 'I Know What I Like'. Very strong track. In fact, this could have been on 'Foxtrot' but I think, due to it's length, they had to leave it out. It's good enough to fit between the other Foxtrot-tracks, though! It takes about seven minutes and contains loud, skilled playing and the good ... (read more)

5 stars Hm, a piece of genius that many didn't get a shot at until 25 years after its initial release. This is yet another Genesis classic, which would probably be more fitting released after (or on) Nursery Cryme, rather than after SEBTP. Obviously the placement doesn't hinder it, though.
