Genesis Live is the first live album released by rock group Genesis in 1973. It was the band’s first top 10 hit in the UK, reaching No. 9 and remaining on the charts for 10 weeks.
The tracks on the album were recorded at De Montfort Hall, Leicester, England by the Pye Mobile Recording Unit, engineer Alan Perkins, on 25 February 1973 except for “Return of the Giant Hogweed“, which was recorded at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester, England on the previous day, when the band was touring in support of Foxtrot.
These recordings were originally made for the U.S. radio show King Biscuit Flower Hour, although they were never broadcast.
