4 stars Just what the title says it is!

The best song from Foxtrot (Watcher Of The Skies), the best song from Nursery Cryme (The Musical Box) and the best song from Trespass (The Knife) all on the same album! In addition you get another two great songs from the early days of Genesis. What more could you possibly ask for? Well, if there is anything at all to complain about here it has to be that the album is rather short and that it has no songs from the very best Peter Gabriel-era album, Selling England By The Pound. Maybe they should have waited just a little bit before releasing a live album and made it into a double album with a few songs from Selling England By The Pound. Had they done that it would most probably be five stars!

As it stands, Genesis Live is a great representation of early Genesis live. But the later live album Seconds Out is even better that this and stands as the best Genesis live album.

Still, this is clearly highly recommended!
