A very strong coffee.

IQ go back a long way with me too. My favourite track is the live dvd version of The Seventh House when Martin Orford was still there and they had their first world war slides to support the song. I think it was recorded at a German festival.
I highly recommend IQ to anybody who loves Genesis.
I just got back from my local hmv and they were playing the new Ian Gillan live cd. Sounded tremendous so I'm going to order it.
Orchestra plus Don Airey plus Demon's Eye.
Was Wembley 04 08 87 released on dvd or was that a different night?
New Prog mag in the UK has...
IQ A missile on it!
Sounds very metally to me with a Frequency similar riff.
Maybe the Glasgow Apollo concert from Three Sides Live from 1976. Wouldn't that whole concert be amazing to own with the dynamic crowd.
Imagine that Genesis somehow sort out their vast resources and they succumb to the wishes of their fans and begin to release some complete concerts. On cd and vinyl and cassette! The only stipulation is it must be a concert that they have previously released a fragment of on one of their previous releases. You can pick three. Here are mine...
1. Bingley Hall 10.7.76 from Archive 2.
2. Drury Lane London 5.5.80 from Archive 2
3. Shrine 24.1.75 from Archive 1 with proper 'It' plus encores.
What do you think?
Very contentious opinion here.
For me Trick and Wind haven't got one duff track. Every song fits in the overall picture over both albums including spookily the b sides.
Calling All Stations is in a similar position for me.
FGTR really works as a concept album and I have to play it like that.
It has begun...
You're in the hand of destiny.
Calling all stations is a fantastic cd.
Every song has a vibe and menace. I particularly enjoy There must be some other way and one mans fool. It does lack a sense of humour but song quality is ace.
Genesis haven't done a worst cd in my opinion.
Spooky how both pm and president look like each other and have the same mannerisms.
Possibly could be the end of the world.
I have always enjoyed Tracker. It always brings a smile to my face. 'Wherever I go' is like clutching sadness. Similarly Privateering has 'Seattle' which is chilling and stark. Mark Knopflers lyrics are profound on that one.
My latest purchase is
Transatlantic Sessions Volume 2 from yonks ago. I bought it for Excuse me mister by John Martyn but love many of the songs on it particularly Paul Brady.
I listen to the Piper club too.
Fantastic set list.
I believe only the 2cd version will come out.
But watch out for a 3cd version.
They did do one for Road of Bones with outtakes and live tracks.
Happy the man is a total favourite of mine.
Late at night I regularly listen to the Italy tour from early 1972 when they started with it and then Stagnation.
Massive IQ fan
The Frequency CD back in 2008 is one of my favourite Cds in history.
The battle of Epping Forest too.
The colony of slippermen
Back in NYC
In the prog mag there is 2 pages with Mike Rutherford also.
Well worth getting.
Nice Tony Banks interview and he gives a solid quote about Hackett...
'I missed Steve on And Then There Were Three as Mike was just finding his way as a guitarist and Steve might have made more of those songs'.
A well written review with Nad Sylvan given a lot of praise. I have enjoyed Sylvan's performances immensely because I think he is charismatic and looks so dramatic. It is a very hard job to interpret songs from 3 careers.
I have my ticket for the Hammersmith Apollo.
Agree to that. Hackett would be brilliant doing a career retrospective from Acolyte onwards playing key songs that mean the world to us. Hackett fans could vote on the songs. I'm so happy to hear Virgin and the gypsy on current tour. There are dozens of Hackett Classics dotted through the years.
Virgin and the Gypsy is a terrible title but it's so beautiful and magical.
But putting Genesis on the cover puts more in the stalls.
