Worth a stream, definitely. I really like the live versions of Turn It On Again and Abacab, plus the In The Cage medley is thrilling (and I don’t normally like medleys). Note the side 4 differences between the U.K. and US versions...it’s all on Wiki.

Yeah, love this one. I first saw Genesis on the Duke tour, just as they were entering their pop phase.

I haven’t seen many better concerts. The Abacab album was a bit of an odd fish, really, but the tour record was spot on.

Definitely.

Phil has developed his vocal “style” more, adding in more strange little fills and ticks in his singing, somewhat unnecessarily at times, but it’s a good track listing and I love it - even Misunderstanding which for some was the beginning of the end.

Another excellent live album. Shame that the band’s leader Ian Jones chooses to disband every few years then come back with a new line up, but I guess it works for him. There have been a number of very good lead singers, Rachel Cohen (nee Jones) Lisa Fury and Hayley Griffiths have each had a few years in the hot seat - each did a great job.

This album is with Rachel Cohen, who joined The Reasoning after Karnataka.

Thanks - I thought so

The tracks are taken from recordings of two BBC In Concert programmes from 1973 (tracks 1 – 11) Volume 1 and 1974 (tracks 12 – 16) Volume 2 which I have

Here's Volume 2

Nice. I’m going to see them in Wokingham in January.
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

Excellent band I’ve only embraced fairly recently.

Pretty much agree. I think C will enjoy the In The Cage medley if nothing else, a rare example of a medley that is actually really great.

Hi Bob, thanks for posting this for me. Yeah, that song and performance is pretty great, actually.

I'm definitely going to watch this one again: you'll make a convert out of me yet :D.

I note the guitarists Pink Floyd T. Shirt. I'm wearing one myself right now.

Hard edged neo prog from Germany.

I liked their 2002 album “Bridge” a lot - wasn’t as impressed by this when 1st played it a year or so back but revisited it yesterday as it’s still on a playlist of non-essentials I am happy to return to....

Better than I remembered.

Played yesterday... Another one of those under-the-radar bands that have appealed to me on my wandering through prog’s vast labyrinths of current bands from all over the world.

Canadian - 2nd album

Not top division but quite eclectic and decent. Bit screechy but well delivered female vocals.

Mr Goshness - Beyond The Blue
