1 ) Cinema Show (with Aisle Of Plenty on the end. I was always disappointed when they'd leave it off when playing live)

2) Firth of Fifth - as a few others have said, probably the best guitar solo ever.

3) Mama

4) Man On A Corner - I love the drum pattern.

5) Fading Lights - used to make me feel sad about getting old, plus it was the last 'proper' Genesis track on the last 'proper' Genesis album, so that always makes me a bit sad too.

my 5 cents, of course varies from mood to mood:

1. Cage medley in IT tour: In the Cage/ In that Quiet Earth / Supper's ready (part 6,7)
2. Carpet Crawlers
3. Firth of Fifth
4. Tonight Tonight Tonight (studio version)
5. Duchess

Honorable: The Lamia, The Cinema Show, Driving the last spike, Home by the sea (and second), Duke's travels, Calling all stations, Fading lights, The Waiting Room, Riding The Scree...

I happened to like the live version of Your Own Special Way, on the "hold on my heart" CD single, that recorded in IT tour.

1. Los Endos (Seconds Out version)
2. In That Quiet Earth
3. Suppers Ready (Seconds Out version)
4. Cinema Show (Seconds Out version)
5. Firth Of Fifth (Seconds Out version)

I know that a lot of the Peter Gabriel biased fans may disagree with my votes, but I feel that Phil sung them much better and the overall sound was much better on Seconds Out. wink

You can say that again! cheesy

Funny, I have the same feeling. When I got started with Genesis it was back when "hey, that guy singing "Abacab" sure looks like that guy singing "In the Air Tonight." Seconds Out became a favorite overplayed album. I liked Peter Gabriel's solo work for the most part--"He was in Genesis? Really? Next thing you'll be telling me McCartney was in a band before Wings!"

So I got Genesis Live, Selling England by the Pound--"Awesome! 'Cinema Show'" and . . . was . . . very disappointed. Part of it was, in my mind, that Peter's voice cracked all over the place--but he was young back then. He got better or at least learned to control it better.

I am sorry, folks, but Phil sings "666 is no longer alone" better than Peter did. Man I remember a long drunken argument with a "Peter Only" fan on that point. I started complaining, "the band sold out after Anthony Phillips left!" just to wind him up!

And there is no Easter Bunny!

But . . . at least . . . none of them are Geddy Lee. . . .

Anyways . . . favorites? dbg10's are all favorites of mine. While I am not a big favorite of Peter's singing, I prefer his "Lamb Lies Down on Broadway," "Carpet Crawlers"--yes . . . I know . . . Phil sings in that too!--and, of course, "Back in New York City." I prefer Phil's "In the Cage," but then he has a ton of live versions as part of the medley.

grin

In all seriousness, I have little patience for "Phil GOOD" "No Peter GOODER" "NOES HE SUXXORZ!!" arguments. I mean . . . really. We are not talking Pavarotti or Shatner here!

Just as I have even less patience for "Era Wars" [Tm.--Ed.]. I rather like the variety, and even if they occasionally stumble--"Whodunnit?" "A 'punk' song?!" User Image--here and there, I like to think there is something for everyone.

Expecting them to make the SAME type of music they made forty years ago . . . or thirty years ago is like expecting John Cleese to do "The Ministry of Silly Walks" when asked.

Wow...very tough choice!

As of today, have to go with:

1. Supper's Ready (Seconds Out)
2. Firth of Fifth (Seconds Out)
3. Duke's Travels/Duke's End
4. Undertow
5. The Musical Box


Ask me again tomorrow wink

I grew up in the 70's and 80's in a house where my parents were both Genesis fans (and prog fans in general), but although my dad had all the Genesis LP's he preferred Genesis from Trick onwards.

Seconds Out became an instant favourite, and still is to this day.

As my dad rarely played the Gabriel era albums, can you imagine how disappointed I was when I first heard the studio versions of Cinema Show and Firth Of Fifth after playing Seconds Out constantly for years?
I thought "where had all the power gone?"

I have since changed my views over the years and grown to appreciate the early versions, but I still prefer the Seconds Out versions.

However, I must point out that I have always loved Dancing With The Moonlit Knight - it was an instant favourite, remember, at that point when I first heard the studio version in the mid to late 80's there was no official live version available.
Although I appreciate the quality of the material on Selling England, it is not my favourite Genesis album (by a long shot) that I know many Genesis fans regard it as being.

Maybe by hearing Seconds Out first has ruined it for me.
