An average recording from Genesis 'Nursery Cryme' tour. This CD has been around for a while, but I was finally able to obtain it through a contact in Belgium. Thanks, Robert!
Some of you have probably seen some of the clips from Belgian TV - and here is the audio part of it. Included are also two tracks from the Foxtrot tour in Spring 1973.
Brilliant! A hidden treasure revealed by Highland 25 years later. The Watford show is probably one of the best documentations of the power and magic from the early Nursery Cryme tour.
This CD was a pleasant surprise. "Imperial College '72" is obviously an audience recording - with nearby comments and laughter - but the sound from the stage is quite balanced and well recorded.
Some Of You Are Going To Die
This is an "extended" version of the officially released 'Live' album - including 'Supper's Ready'. The source is probably the KBFH vinyl test-pressing, and the sound is excellent.
A historical performance at the Rainbow - one of the band's first concerts on the Selling England tour. The theatricals were a fact - and Peters' stories are already established as a cult phenomenon.
The cover says "New Oxford Theatre 1973", but more reliable sources say that it is the audio part of a film recorded in Shepperton Studios ten days after the Rainbow show. Played loud it's great.
Not very interesting - but another document from the first US leg of the 'Selling England' tour. Some songs are cut of, and the sound is quite muffled. 'Supper's Ready' is recorded in Boston, April '74.
A very good and complete recording from New York's Felt Forum. The sound quality rates as one of the best from this tour. A real gem for 'Selling England' tour enthusiasts! BTW - great cover art
Genesis made their first visit to the west coast of the USA in December 1973. In six concerts, on the 17th to 19th, Genesis astounded the Roxy audience. This is the last show of these six.
This is probably the best recording from one of the most bootlegged Genesis gigs. Peter tells his stories in French, and the audience love it. Two tracks from the May '75 Wembley show are included.
Three days after Montreal Genesis play in Boston, and this is another great recording from this tour. Apart from some technical fuck-ups, the band demonstrate that they have grown during the tour.
An audience recording - and a very good one - from the last US leg of the 'Selling England' tour. A double CD, but not a complete show. Peter's stories are hardly audible - but funnier than ever.
A two CD set from the first day at Academy of Music in New York. They actually played two shows that night, and if anyone knows which this is, please let me know. BTW - a great recording.
A great show - and a great recording. Apart from the absence of 'Supper's Ready' the CD covers the atmosphere of the successful second American leg of the band's 'Selling England' tour.
A better recording than the 'Lamb Lives' CD. The CD's are also including cuts from rehearsals at Headly Grange during spring 1974 - among them a twelve-minute long 'Fly On A Windshield',
A complete 'Lamb' show in a soundboard recording. The sound is great, and you get a lot of the atmosphere surrounding the last Genesis tour with Peter Gabriel.
This one of a big number of recordings from the April 1975 Wembley show. But this is a gem because it has the full version of the 'Evil Jam' - almost ten minutes with excitement!
Same show as above - with the full 'Waiting Room', but with a couple of missing tracks due to the length of an LP. *No* info on the cover, and the title is at best funny.
Peter's final gig with Genesis in his home country. A pleasant surprise, really - this recording is much better than I thought after hearing the "Swelled and Spent" LP some years ago.
My first live item with early Peter Gabriel. And it is a very interesting recording with some very fine moments. I was never a very big fan of Peter's second album, but some of these songs are great here.
A no less than excellent recording from Peter's 'So' tour in the States. This is probably the audio part of the officially released video from that tour.
Genesis Rarities I - The B-Side Yellow Foam
My first involvement in non-album stuff recorded before 'Genesis' - as a result of the Internet. A great compilation of B-sides and rare stuff - with 'It's Yourself (Beloved Summer)' as the ultimate highlight.
A real gem! Four unreleased songs - and very interesting live versions of stuff from the earliest days. Excellent sounding recording from BBC sessions - and the CD is including a stretched version of 'The Musical Box'.
Another re-packaging of the 'In The Beginning'-series - with some odd studio demos from the band's earliest recordings and some outtakes from the Anthony Phillips "sessions". Collectors only.
This is obviously a "best of" the 'In The Beginning' series. Most of it are in fact Ant's solo work, but the CD is also including good versions of 'Only Your Love' and 'Silver Song'.
A quite poor recording from the very early days. It's still to be proven that this recording is correctly dated and located. But it's interesting - 'The Light' and 'Going Out To Get You' are included.
