As the UK Duke tour drew to a close in May, Genesis played
three incredible concerts at London venues: 5th at the
Theatre Royal, Drury Lane; 6th and 7th at the Lyceum.
All three shows were recorded to 24 track audio tapes by
Genesis, the masters now being archived at their Farm studios.
Edited sets were supplied to the BBC and to Capital Radio for
broadcast. In addition, the two Lyceum dates were filmed by
the BBC. These master recordings together produced a slow
trickle of official bonus material and more significantly a
rich and interesting broadcast history, which naturally in
turn spawned a flood of highly popular bootleg releases.

In celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Duke tour,
this product draws together the best available audiovisual
sources of the London concerts to convey the magic of those
live shows. The primary audio source is a fresh BBC transfer
of their archive recording created for the December 1980
rebroadcast and provided to the Genesis Radio Show Project
by a generous anonymous donor.
Provision for the song One For The Vine which
suffers speed problems on the BBC master is via a
TM productions 24 bit digital transfer of an original NBC
"Source" LP. Song introductions are taken from the mono
video soundtracks, treated with simulated stereo. All is
carefully restored with trademark TM techniques and blended
seamlessly using 32 bit editing throughout.

With focus firmly on audio restoration, this nevertheless
seemed an unmissable opportunity to merge the body of
video footage by way of additional bonus material. The
DVD uses scenes from the multicam filming of 6th wherever
an acceptable sync could be maintained and then utilizes
the single cam from the 7th elsewhere. Exceptions are
of course made for those passages which could be better
covered by the superior pre-broadcast OGWT edit and for
Ripples where video montage compilation techniques
were used in lieu of missing footage. The DVD features
audio which benefits from the full complement of detailed
restoration work but comes with the caveat that the
quality of the footage is limited to the best available
copies, masters being inaccessible.

Taken as a whole the idea of this synthesis is to
recreate the intensity, drama and jubilation of those
peak performances on the Duke tour. With a little
concentration and perhaps some imagination,
you will be transported back in time to experience
the majesty of these awe inspiring concerts. (excerpts from liner notes by David Dunnington)

The version we've always been waiting for. Just a tad better than all the rest (TM). [kaspergm]

These days, TM versions are the only ones I bother with as they are almost always better than the available alternatives. This show is no exception - a very nice job. I have knocked down my rating a bit due to some high frequency distortion evident on parts of this recording, but in all other respects it is terrific. [ca1ore]

No complaints at all. Great sound. Great editing and very nicely touched up. One For The Vine, being from a vinyl source, sounds fantastic. I couldn't detect any surface noises at all. Wonderful job on this whole project Tom! [Duke23]

I hate to be the only one sounding a note of dissent, but although I acknowledge the terrific amount and quality of the compilation work done on this, there's something about the audio mastering that doesn't do it for me - the Perfect Lyceum and As Good As Gold recordings both sound more alive and ballsy to my ears, as I remember the show being when I first had copies of it way back when it was the latest thing - I realise that mastering can be a very subjective thing, but to me it's as if the sound has been softened and somehow become less full. Sorry TM. [FakePlasticDunk]
