Recorded Live At Philipshalle, Dusseldorf, Germany 6 April 1975
|Recorded at the Palace Theatre in Manchester. This was the first of two days Genesis, both of which were recorded.||On this recording both "It" and "Box" have been replaced by the matching songs from the previous night's performance||At the Hippodrome in Birmingham, this is a show from one of two nights in a row at that venue.||It's really more of a Good than a Very Good. Still, not bad, and a totally complete show, with a very, very rare encore of "The Knife".|
