Genesis Live

From Academic Kids

Genesis Live was the first live album released by progressive rock band Genesis. The band in fact had no plan at this time to release a live album, but the decision was made on the part of their label, Charisma Records, to release Genesis Live as a budget-priced title to mark time while the band recorded its two-record concept album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. The result became a boon for Genesis' most devoted fans, as this album for the longest time represented the only legitimately released concert recording of the band as led by Gabriel.

Though the epic-length "Supper's Ready," the band's signature live song from this period, was omitted from this album, a recording of the song from this tour finally appeared on the 4-CD boxed set, Genesis Archive Vol. 1.
