4 stars Released by Genesis in 1973, this live album contains tracks from their Trespass,Nursery Cryme and Foxtrot albums. The album contains a range of excellently played versions from the studio albums and would earn itself a 5 star rating f it weren't for a few small factors. The first factor is the quality- not much could have been done about this given the limited technology at the time, but some of the heavy guitar and keyboard parts really do sound tinny due to this malfunction. The second thing is that other than The Knife (which is the albums best track, being far superior to the album version thanks to the introduction of Collins and Hackett), the songs are slmost played note for note as they were on the album. Having said all this, it really is a good album (the only live Gabriel era album other than the 1967-1975 boxset) and a necessary addition to any Genesis collection. 4 stars.
