1977 when i saw him he did Back In NYC

and (not Genesis, I know, but very good versions anyway)
I heard it through the grapevine, All day & all of the night

I suppose back in ‘77 he didn’t have enough solo material for a whole show so had to slip in some covers and Genesis songs to fill out the set list


the set list for that concert, approx 90 min (have it on tape, a friend of mine recorded the concert, and I shoot some super-8 film of it) :D


Here Comes the Flood

Slowburn

Moribund the Burgermeister

Modern Love

Indigo

Humdrum

White Shadow

I Heard It Through the Grapevine
(Gladys Knight & The Pips cover)

Excuse Me

Waiting for the Big One

Solsbury Hill

Down the Dolce Vita

On the Air

All Day & All of The Night (Kinks cover)

Here Comes the Flood

Encore:
Back in N.Y.C.

Well, this is a nice / unexpected one to pull out of the hat....

Ukrainian band’s 2nd album (sung in their own language), and absolutely excellent it is too. Mixed by The Pineapple Thief’s Bruce Soord.

A hearty recommendation to you all.

I haven't heard that concert or PG's version - part of me would like to think he did a really good job with it - but how out of place does 'I Heard It Through the Grapevine' look in that setlist! :lol:

I've seen all his tours
the first tour in 77 he mostly closed with Back in NYC. He also did Ain't That Peculiar (M Gaye).
by 78 he changed the encore to Lamb lies down on Broadway.
the next tour in 80 no more genesis and I'm pretty sure its stayed that way since. Although there might be a set somewhere out there with something.

A reunion album from 1997, featuring Hiseman, Farlowe, Heckstall-Smith, Greenslade, Clempson and Clarke. Some very fine songs!

Folk psych prog stuff released a few weeks ago.

Throwback time. I’ve seen a review that commented it sounds a bit like Fairport Convention melded with Led Zeppelin. I can see what he meant.

Not bad at all.

Trembling Bells - Dungeness

I do like her voice.

A nod from my dear friend Neil Jung - sadly not my cup of tea....

Just played:

Insipid mellotron and equally watery vocals.

I just don't 'get' the sound of lots of modern prog

Never disappoints me.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
