5 stars This review is about the 90's Live CD, Recorded at The Grand, London 8 June 1993, which is taken from the Steve HACKETT's 4 CD box set "Live Archive 70, 80, 90's". Steve HACKETT is probably most known for being a member of GENESIS from 1970-1978, which resulted in 8 classical albums. He was an important part of the GENESIS sound in that period. The fifteen albums he has recorded since his departure with the band is much more interesting than the albums GENESIS has recorded since then. He also formed the band GTR together with YES guitarist Steve HOWE in 1986. They recorded a self-titled platinum selling album and made a successful tour before they disbanded and HACKETT continued his solo career. This CD contains a live recording from June 1993 at The Grand Theatre in London, and it's one part from the special 4 CD box set entitled "Live Archive 70, 80, 90's". It's recorded during Steve's "Guitar Noir Tour". Eight songs out of fourteen are taken from the "Guitar Noir" album. Besides the new material he's also playing six songs from his back catalogue and some GENESIS and GTR songs. His playing is as good as always with lots of energy, skill and originality. The 4 CD box set includes a 40-page color booklet. The three albums not included in this review are up to you to discover.
