iTunes Review

Two years after Peter Gabriel’s exit, Genesis’ second live album captures Phil Collins as full-fledged frontman. Recorded in Paris in 1976 and ’77, the double-LP balances accessible singles with flights of fancy like “Firth of Fifth” and the 24-minute “Supper’s Ready.” Jazzy drumming (mostly from Chester Thompson) and prominent synths drive the band, but memorable choruses and that soon-to-be-ubiquitous voice forecast their pop future. Despite the common perception of prog rock, Genesis don’t take themselves too seriously—they sound loose and good-natured across this epic set.

Customer Reviews

The band at their Best

Sidestepping the debate about pre/post Gabriel, this version of the touring band was magic. Steve Hacket added that soaring etherial sound on guitar and Chester Thompson on drums added a rock solid low end. Although I was a big prog rock fan, listening now, many albums from this era sound thin and fiddly. Genesis on this tour (which is well captured on the recording) sounds huge.

A Must-Buy Live Album

This album has always struck me as one of the greater live albums out there. This shows a Genesis, more specifically Collins, finding their new groove as far as their live work. Phil wasn't as powerful and soulful with his voice just yet. But it's still fantastic none-the-less. The Carpet Crawlers will give you chills. That's my personal favorite from the album. This version Supper's Ready gives a unique glimpse into one of the groups most iconic songs, featuring Phil on vocals as opposed to Peter. It's very interesting and very well performed. I could go on and on but, point blank, don't buy just selections from this masterpiece...click buy album. You'll be happy you did. The first time I heard this was when I purchased a vinyl copy from ebay a couple of years ago. I was still gettin into Genesis. Just the way the album flowed and sounded captured me. And after purchasing the remastered version, I can officially say this album has yet again shined in ways I've never seen it shine before. Buy this album , folks. Quit reading and buy it. Now. Seriously. Do it. Why are you still reading? BUY THIS ALBUM!!

Best live album ever

You don't miss Gabriel too much here....Especially this version of "Supper's Ready"...Collins puts so much feeling into it, you'd think he'd always sung it....The dynamics at the finale of this along w/ the delicate ritardando give it an ending like a studio album...and the audience is so hushed...they were right there w/ the band. "I Know What I Like" ; best live version of this available....then soon to be Genesis classics, "Squonk" "Afterglow", " Dance on a Volcano"...and "Los Endos".....
Fan...freakin ....tastic!

In addition, the group has provided a launching pad for the superstardom of members Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, and star solo careers for members Tony Banks, Michael Rutherford, and Steve Hackett. Their roots go back to 1965 and a pair of rival groups,...
