5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB & A WONDERFUL EPITAPH, 21 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once you get used to the gentler songs of Davids new direction, this is an excellent album, but with his guitar solos as powerful as ever, and as expected along with the best musicians around. What is outstanding is the quite brilliant production. If it wasn't printed on the cover, you'd swear it was recorded in a studio, not in the open air, in a Polish shipyard, and with an orchestra!! The balance and dynamics are faultless.
With the inclusion of Echoes which strongly features Richards keyboards, it gives us a wonderful epitaph of a great, and much missed musician. Even more poignant as (for some reason) the album took two years to be released, and he died as the album reached th market. The use of the orchestra works very well, and they are never intrusive or overbearing, and add an extra richness to the tracks they're on, with High Hopes especially impressive.
If you want to see (or just hear) the cream of British rock musicians with David at his best, you won't find anything better. Just wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars the Capitol Years albums were easily his best, 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As far as I'm concerned, the Capitol Years albums were easily his best. The singing, phrasing and orchestration cannot, and has not been bettered by anybody. Nelson Riddle is again in superlative form on this album, with him and Sinatra fitting together like a hand in a glove. With two extra tracks added on for the cd release (recorded at the next session Sinatra did, so they fit in nicely) the album is great value as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, as fresh as Hammersmith, 20 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So, having bought Hammersmith is it worth getting the RAH. Yes, for the different tracks, as they are all old favourites and they are all performed superbly. Apart from,as mentioned elsewhere, the drummers effort at being a lead singer!. Harmony fine, lead uum, no!!
The bad revues on here regarding the bass pedals are misleading. The acoustics in the RAH are famously ropey (echo), which seemed to particularly resonate with the bass pedals. Compare this recording with the "flatter" sound of Hammersmith. But after the first song the lads on the desk get the levels sorted and the rest of the concert seems fine to me. Yes, the bass pedals are a bit louder than at Hammersmith, but they are only used now and again anyway. But this I found just adds to that big, rich Genesis sound that we all love anyway!! I wouldn't say they were overpowering at all. RAH-nil, mixing desk-won! Overall another superb gig. But if you REALLY don't like base pedals, just buy Hammersmith.
