Genesis - 1970-1972 - The Complete BBC Sessions

Genesis
The Complete BBC Sessions
1970-1972

FM Broadcast Recordings, very good quality
available in both Lossless (FLAC) and mp3 (320 kbps) versions

Previously, I have posted many fine Genesis bootleg recordings, but did not post some of the very best ones because they were readily available from other sites. But now, as stated previously, with the demise of so many music blogs and filesharing sites, they may not be so readily available. So, now I will present a couple more of the classic Genesis recordings as part of our continuing look at all-time classic boots. Although many recordings exist of live early Genesis (1970-1972), most available are of pretty poor quality. But this premier compilation of BBC recordings from those early years represents the very best quality live recordings from that time, are high quality FM and Pre-FM recordings, and feature a premier assortment of songs (including the rarely heard epic 'Twilight Alehouse') and performances from those early days of the group. Thus, this really is the best (and probably only) boot from those early days that you really need (and you do need it). So, again, for those that don't already have it, here's some early Genesis in their BBC sessions.

Thank you for another great boot. Your project is filling some important gaps in my collection and I appreciate what you are doing. Thanks and I wonder what you will pull out of the hat next.

PS forgot to mention. This is a more complete and better sounding boot than many others in circulation. Yes it has been tweaked but personally I prefer this copy.

Thank You soooo much from USA! Your so right that many sites are gone. Gaw those were the good ole days,though. But what I can't understand is why these many sites are still up, but don't work anymore? I've gone through my bookmarks and a lot of sites went down in 2009, 10, and 11...but there still there. Why can't someone take them down permantely?? As for your site, I appreciate, as another commenter said, you filling in a gap in my collection. Live long and prosperous my friend! Love your site! Thank You again!
