Genesis - Montreal 1974

For those who missed it in the comments here's another Genesis in the seventies generously offered by Titus.
Check out reviews for this show here.


Here is Genesis live in Montreal 1974:
Peter Gabriel & the boys are in fine form on this excellent
FM show from the 'Selling England by the Pound' tour.
All the usual 'stories' are spoken in French.
These posh lads are fluent.
If you don't have it - get it!
Just check out that setlist:

Watcher of the Skies
Dancing with the Moonlit Knight
Cinema Show
I Know What I Like (in Your Wardrobe)
Firth of Fifth
The Musical Box
Horizons
The Battle of Epping Forest
Supper's Ready

(Tony Banks struggles through the piano intro to 'Firth'
which was eventually no longer included in live performances
of this song. His work on the early albums is nothing short
of genius but it has to be said - he is ALL right hand.)

Ripped at 320kbs with brand new covers
exclusive to soundaboard.

Regarding the comment about Tony Banks being all right-hand... hey, nothing wrong with being 'all right-hand'... as a teenager, I was "all right-hand", three times a day LOL and I turned out okay ;)

Are you sure you turned out OK?

Volunteers are a UK based band led by singer/lead guitarist Paul Bibby. Paul has been creating music for over 25 years.This album is a sample of songs from various recordings and features many different musicians. I play bass on two or three songs and wrote the words to one. Several of the tracks were recorded at my home studio. Paul has an original approach to music but, to give you an indication, he is very fond of Captain Beefheart & King Crimson.
So NOT for the faint hearted.
Artwork is included and it's all FREE!

Aye, lad... I turned out just fine :) (sure, my palms are hairy, and I need to wear glasses, but other than that, I'm sound)

Regarding the 'right-handed' comment, they primarily discontinued the Firth intro not because Tony couldn't handle it, but because of the difficulties in getting a proper piano-type sound out of the early 70's keyboard equipment. I do believe Tony was quite capable of playing his own material, regardless of the missed notes here and there.

Rubbish! I've heard the boots & he always plays it crap. The last performance he just lost it completely prompting Collins to hastily shout 1234 at which point the band hit the beginning (proper)- the intro was never played again.

Those who think that Tony "is all right hand' and couldn't play his own material don't know what they are talking about. Tony's troubles with the "Firth" introduction live were a combination of troubles with the RMI keyboard and his very bad nerves. Tony was indeed a bundle of nerves onstage, especially during the early days, and he felt very uncomfortable playing his solo bit live to open the number. End of story.

P.S. The "posh boys" are not "fluent", at all. Peter's schoolboy French in the introductions to these numbers is often quite bad. Kudos to him for trying, though!

Any chance in the link being restored please? Many thanks.

Ps. Just seen "The Musical Box" recreating "The Lamb" Tour. Fantastic boys, keep up the good work. If you haven't seen em, do so - asap! Cheers!!

Before this digital version, a vinyl version existed. At the time, the vinyl was called "L'ange Gabriel". Except that it was a simple album, so the line-up was not complete. You could hear: Watcher of the Skies, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight Cinema Show, I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe) Firth of Fifth and The Musical Box.
In fact, the soundtrack show from a broadcast on the radio station CHOM-FM radio. The show was held at the Centre sportif de l'Université de Montréal April 21, 1974.
An old fan of Genesis and I live in Québec.
