Prog Reviewer
4 stars A one-stop shop for all of the Genesis official live releases. Maddeningly, this doesn't include the full Shrine Auditorium show from the Lamb tour which was provided on the Genesis Archive boxed set, simply providing an extract as bonus tracks on Genesis Live. (Why do this? Who only wants a quarter of a Lamb show? Why not restore the material cut from the original Genesis Live instead?)

On the other hand, major fans will consider it worth tracking down for the Live At the Rainbow bonus disc, which is the great lost live album of the Gabriel era. Tracks from the setlist in common with Genesis Live are snipped from the CD, so it's missing Watcher of the Skies and The Musical Box, but what you then get is a really excellent live runthrough of all of Selling England By the Pound (save for Aisle of Plenty) plus Supper's Ready, in sound quality greatly superior to that of Genesis Live. It'd be a five-star disc released as a standalone.

Warthur | 4/5 |
