GENESIS
From One Fan To All Others [Stonehenge, 3CD]

Rarities include BBC recordings, live at the Civic Center, Lakeland, Florida, January 11, 1975.

This excellent box set of recordings from the Peter Gabriel era comes from the Italian Stonehenge label. Disc One includes BBC recordings, mostly studio. The Shepherd, Pacidy, Let Us All Make Love and Stagnation are omitted because they’ve been released officially on Archive 1967-75. Disc Two’s Supper’s Ready and More Fool Me - Rainbow Theatre, London, October 20, 1973 - also appear on Achive 1967-75. The rest of Disc Two and Three offers a complete live performance of the The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway album. - Philip Cohen

When this Stonehenge three-disc boxset was released in 1993, it was lauded not only for its collection of rarities but that it also included a complete The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway live show. The official Genesis Archive 1967-75 was only released in 1998 and while it contained the January 24, 1975 Los Angeles show, the wikipedia reported that some of Peter Gabriel’s vocals (as much as 40 per cent) were re-recorded by the singer in 1995 due to technical problems with the recording as well as elaborate costumes that often muffled his voice. Some of Steve Hackett’s guitar work was also said to have been re-recorded. Also, what surfaced of the soundboard recording was incomplete and the released version contained remastered filler from other Lamb shows.

As for the From One Fan boxset, sound editor Andrew Skeoch commented on guitars101.com that because of the excellent audio quality of the Providence December 8, 1974 show, “bits of it appear on other releases, notably the Waiting Room/Anyway section which is used on several boots (Lamb Lives, Suppers Ready with a Little Lost Lamb, From One Fan To All Others) to bridge the missing sections of the West Palm Beach and Lakeland soundboard recordings of January 1975.”

Thanks to Phil for sharing the tracks.

Note: A longtime music fan, Philip Cohen was a contributor to the now-defunct ICE Magazine and compiled the boxsets for The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, Humble Pie and Nice.

  3. PS. Never missed a Genesis show with Gabriel in NY or NJ for that matter back in the day, starting with the Foxtrot tour, I believe it was. I would rent motel rooms in NJ just not to miss a show in that area. I’m talking pre modern technology (internet, computer, when all you had to go by was Newspapers, Rock mags and word of mouth). Only King Crimson came close in intensity - VERY close.

  4. There are no live recordings of the two pre-Phil Collins Genesis line-ups.

    By Philip Cohen on May 31, 2010

  5. I’m really surprised at the lack of positive response to this box set, because, of the hundreds of items I’ve supplied to Big O, this must be one of the finest.
    At the time of release, this box was a landmark for Genesis collectors; the first time there was anything close of a high quality live recording of “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway”. with the added bonus of a huge quantity of full-fidelity BBC material, including a rendition of their B-side “Twilight Alehouse”, that is, in my opinion more powerful than the regular released take.

    By Philip Cohen on Jun 1, 2010

  6. I agree Philip, this is/was an excellent unofficial boxset.

    Perhaps, the lack of response is do to the fact that since its release, most true hardcore Genesis fans now have the complete BBC recordings-and in somewhat better quality too-including the Jan. 9, 1972 John Peel session not represented here (The Return Of The Giant Hogweed, Harold The Barrel (two mixes), Fountain of Salmacis & Harlequin), and the live ‘In Concert’ session from March 2, 1972 (Fountain of Salmacis, The Musical Box & Giant Hogweed). This is essential because unlike these other BBC sessions this one is in front of a live audience with a classic Peter story before The Musical Box.

    Plus, many live Lamb soundboards have seen the light of day since this release, though this Lakeland show still remains one of my favorites.

    And i agree, this version of Twilight Alehouse (’Sounds of the Seventies’, Sept. 25, 1972) is much better-more energetic-than the released B-side! (the other two tracks from that session available here: #’s 108 & 109 are great too!)

    p.s. thanks for all your wonderful offerings to this site!

  7. At one point, Virgin Records proposed a Genesis BBC compilation CD, and CD test pressings were manufactured, but the release was vetoed by the group. I’m surprised that this test pressing hasn’t escaped onto the internet.

  8. This group in 70’s was one of the best prog-rock bands…superb!
    Thanks ;)

  9. Awesome collection….and it IS too bad that the BBC Collection hasn’t seen official release, Harold The Barrell is priceless!!
    Funny, absolutely tons of “Lamb” soundboards appearing now! I got to saturation level and stopped grabbing them awhile back….my favorite performance being Birmingham, too bad it’s an audience recording because the band sounded great that night! (May 2nd I beleive, released as “Swelled And Spent”)

    By Todd M on Jun 3, 2010

  10. This Lamb performance is my favorite, but the sound on this release isn’t as good as when the show was posted previously. The high end disappears during the piano intro at the beginning and never returns. This wasn’t the case on the previous version.

  11. aarrrrr yer a bastard…give us 50p for tap dancin’ lessons

    By a wheater on Jun 16, 2010

  12. the lack or response is probably due to the fact that you could not include the tracks released officially

    who the heck wants to waste time downloading an incomplete bootleg? totally pointless.

    By jimmy jam on May 21, 2011

  13. Phil,thanks for sharing this…I’m fairly new to downloading,and have only recently gone back to listening to Genesis after many years(I was a big fan in the 70’s and saw them in Manchester on the Lamb tour and then later on the Trick tour).
    - it’s pretty amazing to me to hear the live Lamb tracks.
    …thanks again

  14. I didn’t respond because I am fortunate to have a hard copy. At the time of the release, these were the cleanest versions of the BBC recordings. Obviously the official release made them redundant.

    I agree it would be great to have official versions of other BBC tracks, particularly those that used to travel under the name “Henry’s Green Knickerbockers.”

    With regards to anyone thinking like jimmy jam, I can only say that anyone who has bought all the official versions already have the deleted tracks, and that their time would not be wasted in downloading the Lamb tracks.

  16. darth is a wanker

    By darthcdx on Apr 20, 2015

  17. whatchootawkinboutwillis? well i guess it could be anyone huh. it doesnt absolutely have to be willis does it. tell me something.. when u are sitting there obsessing about me are u in fact wanking it with thoughts about me??? wouldnt that actually make u a wanker? one who wanks? i mean after all youre not going to try to convince anyone u dont touch it now are ya? god knows u dont have anyone else to do that of course. if u did u wouldnt have the need and desire to spend so much time obsessing about me and posting messages here like this now would ya? course not. but why this particular page? i didnt even post on this one.

    i am a fan of all pre 78 genesis. 76-77 for hackett and because they still didnt go pop yet. pre 76 for peter involvement and of course hackett etc. and they were still progressive. after 77 they lost that touch / sound. i have no interest whatsoever in genesis with phil on vocals. i dont like anything phil solo with 2 songs exception. one where eric is on guitar.. and his huge hit take me home. not sure why that touches me so strongly. incidentally for collectors out there the video of wish it would rain has a different take / solo on it than the regular album / single version. its not very different but its not identical. so if u make an audio of the video youll have another version. i also know of 2 people who swear that peter and sting are on take me home. i am 99% sure theyre not but maybe there is a version out there????

    By darth on Apr 20, 2015

  18. “i also know of 2 people who swear that peter and sting are on take me home.”

    are they the same two stoned deadheads who told you that steve howe was in the band on a live chuck berry album?

    By barth on Apr 20, 2015

  19. no those ppl have no connection.
    however.. u are misquoting something i said. the album in question isnt a chuck berry album. it was a single song of chuck berry live on an album that i believe was full of fillmore performances altho it may not have been only fillmore perfs. in any event.. the song by chuck that was on that album had steve howe as the guitarist in his band pre yes. steve isnt even on the first yes album anyway so its probably around the bodast / tomorrow era. all i know is that the song which i presume is official of course is the only song unless there is another on that album of chuck and the band he had for that performance. thats kinda odd that u held onto that for so long. it seems to bother u that i had this tidbit of info and u didnt. why is that?? the deadheads u are referring to ran a dead program on wbai-fm in nyc. i think it was every wed or thurs nite back in the 80s and 90s. one would call himself coolbreeze if i remember correctly. its been a while. anyway.. i found out about the chuck song from him. he played it over the air during the intro to his show a couple of times. i asked him about it and then went out and got myself a copy of it.
    this is before i got online however and the people who believe the phil collins thing who by the way i dont believe.. are people who i didnt encounter til years later. all i did was pass along something i heard. its not necessarily fact.

    By darth on Apr 20, 2015

  20. “all i did was pass along something i heard. its not necessarily fact.”

    very little of what u pass along is. steve howe playing with chuck berry for instance. woodstock set lists. bootleg history. etc.
