4 stars One for the History vaults, this one!

All those lovely Genesis performances you used to find separate in YouTube and GoogleVideo turned out to be gathered in this fine amateurish DVD. An interesting find, where you realy don't spend money in the (almost inexistant) presentation and go right for the videos. Depite the line up presented, you can watch all three performances in any order you like. Personaly, I always leave the "first" (30-10-1973 Shepperton Studios) for last, simply because it has the best tracklist/quality relation. It is that show alone that makes this a worthwhile purchase. The greatest downsize of this release is the want of variety: we have three renditions of Watcher of the Skies (definitly not one of my favorite tracks by Genesis) two of I Know What I Like, The Musical Box and Supper's Ready - but "you can't always get what you want". It's a great chance to see Genesis at the top of their game, something that (I am now convinced of that) you will never ever get the chance to see again.
