Genesis - 1973 - Live



Essentially a live best-of with one glaring omission,
Live was issued in America nearly a year after it
reached the Top Ten in England. A well-recorded showcase
of the early group's concert sound, much of what is here
actually works better than the studio versions of the
same songs — "The Musical Box," "The Knife," "Return of the Giant Hogweed,"
and "Watcher of the Skies" are heard in livelier, tighter versions than their excellent originals.
