Steve Hackett - Selling England tour.

Ooooh yes please!!

Ah, apologies, I had forgotten about his.

These are the ones I have duplicates of:

Leicester & Manchester (24/25 Feb 1973) - this is what Genesis Live should have been, but was edited down to fit on a single vinyl long player. Same track list as the official release, but includes Supper's Ready and stories. Sounds like a vinyl conversion, but decent quality.

Providence, Rhode Island, USA (8th Dec 1974) - early gig from the Lamb tour. Again, decent quality.

Chicago, USA (16th Feb 1977) - One of my favourites this. Lifted from an FM broadcast of the Wind and Wuthering Tour.

Sheffield City Hall (April 17th 1980) - Duke tour recording. Again lifted from a radio broadcast. Precursor to the magical London gigs at The Theatre Royal and The Lyceum.

(1) Six Of The Best, Milton Keynes Bowl (2nd Oct 1982) - Not great recordings, none are, but hugely significant bootleg of the reunion gig in aid of Peter's WOMAD project.

(2) Six Of The Best, Milton Keynes Bowl (2nd Oct 1982) - Not great recordings, none are, but hugely significant bootleg of the reunion gig in aid of Peter's WOMAD project.

Nad Sylvan must be doing something right. He's got people talking about it on BC. :lol:

I'm not much of a Hackett fan these days and find his recent material a tad boring. Loved the first few solo albums which i bought at the time and saw them few times many moons ago with Richard Cadbury, John Hackett, Nick Magnus, John Shearer and Pete Hicks.

That was an amazing band and all very talented musicians playing a style of Prog i really enjoyed at the time.

Altho Nad is playing characters i guess its what made Peter Gabriel  so popular with Genesis. I've only seen snippets on youtube and can't really take to him. The band still sounds quite good in the songs i recognise.

Sometimes its nice to take an old classic and do something a little different with it. Hackett is now 69 so maybe he just gets a little bored with the old songs :lol:

On an aside i managed to get the full Hackett autographs mentioned above on the Genesis Seconds Out Music book along with the full Genesis line up on the Duke tour including Tony Smith and even a few of their wives at the time signed it for me. Yes i was a bit of a Genesis nerd in my teens. Still have it too. That was the day Phil Collins bought my lunch for me and chatted with us for ages in a hotel lounge in Glasgow. Top bloke is our Phil.  Happy days.

However my problem with most modern Prog is I don't like it very much. For a start it tends to veer far too much towards the rock end of the spectrum for me (I love classic rock, but that & prog generally don't mix very well IMO), e.g. the dreadful Dream Theater. Unfortunately it may be 40 or 50 years ago but nothing has come close since IMO. 

 

You should check out Landmarq, featuring Basschat's very own @Stingray5…..

I cannot believe Hackett hasn't seen all the criticism of Nad online.  Blimey, his unflinching devotion to something so at odds with common sense might have been part of the reason why he left Genesis in the first place?

I can't watch it.

I'm sure I saw an interview where the subject was broached - he acknowledged it but basically said 'I don't care. I like him.'

Which is the whole point of having your own group isn't it. I am not a fan of Nad but it doesn't make any difference, I am still going to see them anyway, so its not like he is losing out!

Because of the debate going on here i went back and watched a few of his youtube clips and thought he did a pretty god version of Gabriel era songs and wasn't too bad a singer. Some of the outfits were a bit weird but we said the same about Gabriel when he did them back in 70's. 

Its all part of the show i guess. He certainly wouldn't put me off going to see Hackett.

Saw the show on the weekend in Cardiff. Nad was fairly decent, I thought. He's strictly there to impersonate Peter Gabriel, and amusingly wasn't even on stage for the heavily harmonised "The Virgin and the Gypsy", which Hackett said he'd never done live before because he "didn't have enough singers in the band"

For all my yap I've been persuaded by a friend to go tonight. That song's one of my favourites.

On which subject...

Taking A Little Trip Back With Father Tiresias.

Being a serious Genesis fan in my youth (losing interest with the 3-piece pop group version, even though they named an album after me), after having followed this thread, I looked up SH with Nad Whatsit on YouTube, just so I could see what all the fuss was about. Not too much, from what I could see.

Anyway, while I was there, I saw various other Genesis items on the YouTube sidebar;  one of which was the live version of I Know What I Like from Bingley Hall. Now I actually did go to that show, so I thought that I'd check it out.  Thing is, someone I know swore blind that he'd seen me in the film of that gig.......yeh, right. 

SO I watched it......

 

...and there, at 45 seconds, as the crowd rises up when Phil Collins starts to sing, there's a young guy with glasses on who throws up his arms...

....and it's an 18 year-old Mangotango, (with both a hairline and a waistline, unlike now), and all of his life ahead of him....... hadn't seen that before last night and it made me want to weep for no known reason. Not for the Genesis track at all, I can assure you.

The drummer is great, well, he did a drum solo last week which was hardly necessary, but other than that all was good. And the bass player is superb. I assume he will have the same.

I hope that’s the case. I watched some clips from earlier this tour and he wasn’t very Collins-y... bass-wise, as long as it’s not Nick Beggs I’ll be happy.

Maybe not but he is a good drummer.

Well, I like Nick Beggs, but it isn't him, it is Jonas Reingold and he played pretty well spot on Genesis stuff, and his vocals were also very good.

On a totally unrelated side note, how do you manage to embed a youtube video paused at the correct moment?  I've tried a number of times and it never works.

Yes.  Yes it is. And I cannot tell you how long it took Captain Clumsy here to tee up that shot.

Of course, "About 43 years" would be the comedy answer; but in all seriousness, I spent ages trying to get one that would show that young man in the best light possible, just before those Genesis blokes get in the way.:laugh1: I owe him that.

And even that screenshot still isn't it, but hey ho, life's too short....as this whole scenario proves.
