A document of the Genesis post-Gabriel progressive-era

Nice movie (and still very rare to find) shot during the Trick of the Tail tour in 1976. Great Genesis line-up, without Peter Gabriel for the first time but with Bill Bruford (of Yes and King Crimson) on drums and percussion.

The most important Genesis feature was the theatrical approach carried on in the early 70's by Peter Gabriel costumes and acting. Here it's the music itself, together with a massive light show, to involve the audience. Phil Collins sings quite well, but he'll be able to find a more personal style later on. Impressive rhythm section, with Rutherford (with a legendary double-neck guitar) and Bruford playing complex songs with precision and fantasy. Steve Hackett on guitar has a unique brilliance and elegance.

But a video for fans only: some of the songs are included only in sections (Supper's Ready and Cinema Show) and overdubbed with images that have very little to do with the music. The tracking list is not in the actual order of the concert, and the concerts of that period were also very longer, so this is just a short selection of the songs performed.

Very good stuff, but not the best for Genesis fans...
