Liner Notes:
Genesis first visited Berkeley California on January 22, 1975 to perform 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway'. The band returns now on April 29, 1976 for their second visit to this part of the Bay area to again present old material but also to play songs from the new album 'The Trick of the Tail'. This is their first show in four days, since a performance in Kansas City, and the first of 3 they will give on the West coast. During the previous visit to Berkeley, Peter Gabriel was at the microphone and Phil Collins played drums. During this visit, Phil is now singing vocals and Bill Bruford is leading the percussion. After the first song “Dance on a Volcano”, Phil informs the audience that they are going to play a collection from the prior tour which they have entitled “Lamb Stew”. This consists of “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway”, “Fly on a Windshield” and “Carpet Crawlers”. Phil's renditions are clearly different than Gabriel's but still well received by the audience.

Mr. Collins also continues Peter's tradition of telling introductory stories before many of the songs. Though using less fantasy and magical thinking than his predecessor, Phil conveys humorous tales, including some local flavor, which the audience seems to enjoy. Older material such as “Supper's Ready” and “The Cinema Show” take on a new sound as Bill Bruford works his magic at the drum set and interjects a series of new percussion instruments into the mix. Phil's voice, though not as powerful as Peter's, has an angelic quality at this point in his career which blends well with many of the songs presented during this show. The show closes with a medley of both old and new material: “Los Endos”, “It” and a shortened version of “Watcher of the Skies”.

Notes from the Re-Master
This show was taken from multiple sources, all beginning with an audience recording. As a good quality audience recording, this show has the benefit of providing the acoustics of the BerkeleyTheater to the listener. The majority of the show is from a second generation tape source. General tape hiss and show noise were identified and removed. Tonality was generally good and therefore unaltered. Very few clicks, pops or dropouts were found. Viable music frequencies existed up to 12,000 Hz. Other available CD versions of this show have a great deal of hiss and viable music frequencies only up to 7,500 Hz. These other versions also have cut the beginning of the song Los Endos due to tape stretch distorting the sound. During remastering we have restored this segment. A source with the complete dialog between songs could not be found so some transitions are a bit awkward but more natural than other CD versions available.
