Ladies and gents, you have seriously got to be kidding me. There is only guitarist that should be allowed to play frankly THE greatest most beautiful guitar solo of any act and those that saw it played live in Europe this May 2019 and will see it played live several times in U.K. this Autumn will know that, dear friends, is Mr. Stephen Richard Hackett, king of sustain. Any other attempt is frankly rubbish. Twiddly bollocks or wee wee notes, as Zappa called it, is no substitute for the maestro. I have seen Stuermer attempt this several times including Old Trafford and screamed out for the torture to stop every time. Some years ago at Manchester Uni I shouted at two nefarious individuals talking over the solo by Hackett before he was lured into albeit great, re runs of Genesis stuff.
So please go listen to the real deal. On Seconds Out the mix was atrocious and criminally detrimental to Hackett by a petulant Mr Banks who has admitted as much.
Therefore I gave you the pre official release of Rainbow gig from 73 or the expurgated official box set version over the tripe suggested by Colin; no disrespect Colin.
P.S When is an LP version of the Rainbow gig going to be released?
I have said elsewhere in this great chat that we should have a double LP of Genesis Live and also a triple LP of SO to include AIAMN & OFTV and others that were missed off. Apparently the label didn’t like the idea of a triple back then. Hold on how many LPs in Yessongs? Oh yeah three.
