5 stars "Jerusalem boogie to us perhaps but to the worms it meant Supper is Ready"

Where can you Peter Gabriel utter those words? Right here on this fantastic box set that's where. How long did people wish for the things in this box set? Do I need to remind you? How about live renditions of both the Lamb and Suppers Ready? How about some other things like Stagnation? Firth of Fifth? Twilight Alehouse? More Fool Me? (OK that's a joke). Disk three is worth the price alone however if you take these songs and take Genesis live and add the Lamb shows in hows that for a brilliant 4 desk live snapshot of the Gabriel era? So what is wrong? Gabe and Hackett correcting a few major warts on the Lamb? That's stopping you? Don't let it because this thing is brilliant for that alone. The Lamb live a complete a snapshot in time to add to what the studio offers is essential. Add in some demos and other rough mixes of unreleased songs and you got a tight little package. Great booklet as well with lots of pictures of the band, picture of memorabilia and a great history of the era.

If you are a fan of the Gabriel era this set is essential to your collection. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is well i can't think of any reason not too so here it is 5 stars.
