Back in the late 1970s, Capital Radio in London used to broadcast a great evening radio show (hosted by 'little' Nicky Horne) called "Your mother wouldn't like it". Aside from broadcasting great music, Capital occasionally broadcast live concerts too.

Towards the end of the 1977 tour, Genesis returned to the UK for three sold out nights at the Earl's Court Arena in London and the second night was broadcast live by Capital. I recall that Nicky had interviewed Genesis several times and unlike previous live broadcasts, the program running time was specially extended to accommodate this concert.

This BURP version is a re-master of the "Before Riches" boot (Silver Rarities SIRA 124/125). This is a nice recording (though regrettably not the best from this tour). If you like the set-list, but want a great recording of this tour then I'd suggest Zurich Re-Visited (although that recording misses the shortened version of The Knife included here).
