Well, here it is, the recently-surfaced soundboard recording from the only rehearsal session prior to the one-off 1982 Genesis Reunion Concert at Milton Keynes, UK on 10-02-1982. For those that don't know, this was an impromptu 'one-time-only' reunion show, in which Gabriel got together with his former bandmates, presumably to help get Peter out of debt after getting the WOMAD festival established earlier that year. The performance from that memorable concert event is available on various bootlegs (as 'The Lamb Woke Up Again', 'Six of the Best', 'Live from Milton Keynes'), some available elsewhere on this forum. As many have commented, the performance from that show is a bit shaky in spots (due to lack of preparation time and rehearsal), but it remains the only time Gabriel has re-joined the band onstage to date, certainly a one-of-a-kind event. Unfortunately, all the known recordings from this show are fairly mediocre audience recordings, certainly worth having, but not the best quality. So, now here comes some higher quality tapes of the rehearsal session (9-29-82) prior to the concert. Now we have a better document of this unique time and concert experience. (more...) -Original
