Click here for link to Audio Player: 1972-03-11 BBC In Concert (Genesis)
A classic concert this weekend. Genesis, during what many consider to be the halcyon days of the band, when the inimitable Peter Gabriel was lead singer. Recorded on November 3, 1972 at, presumably the BBC’s Paris Theater in London.
Sadly, because it’s a radio concert, you don’t get to experience the theatrics Gabriel employed in the course of the show. But this was also at a time when the music of Genesis was at its best.
You still get an idea of what all the fuss was about for this band in 1972.
