If ever there was proof that Genesis lost their way with the departure of Steve Hackett this album is it. A mix of original Genesis tracks, with subsequent compositions by Steve Hackett plus offerings from Ian MacDonald and John Wetton make this a great album. Furthermore, for a live album its largely flawless (although a couple of the distorted vocals don't quite come off -hence only four stars). Five superb musicians displaying their art to the max!
Compare this with Genesis' Archive #2 and you can see where they went wrong and what is missing from that box set. Power to your elbow, Steve Hackett!

This album holds all the classic tunes I like to hear from Steve Hackett
In my opinion by far his best live album
A great choice of tunes from a wide span of Steve Hackett albums plus a couple of very cool covers
"heat of the moment" by Asia and the old King Crimson tune "the court of the crimson king"
Only drawback (if any) I rather would have preferred a couple of more live classics in the end of disc two in stead of the studio tracks
Essential album for proglovers, and a perfect entry to Steve Hackett for those who have not been introduced to this artist

This album is one of my favourite Prog Rock live albums. Steve Hackett and John Wetton are in top form. The selection of music is top class. A great listen. A must buy.

This double cd wasn't as it said on the sleeve it should have been 2discs of Steve Hackett.
Cd 1 was fine but Cd 2 wasn't it was classical music this really made the whole cd a waste of time
