Friday night just because video: Genesis twofer

Still buried in too much stuff in meatspace. For fans of classic prog-rock, here is a little treat: excerpted from a Genesis live concert recording from 1986, here is keyboardist Tony Banks performing a medley of the keyboard solos from three classic Genesis tracks: “Cinema Show” (from Selling England by the Pound), “…In that quiet Earth” (from Wind and Wuthering), and “The Colony of Slippermen” (from The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway).

And here is possibly the oldest video footage of the band: a 1972 performance on Belgian TV of their early prog-psychedelic classic, “The Musical Box”. Note not just the different appearance of the band (then still with Peter Gabriel on vocals and Steve Hackett on guitar) but also the rather “different” instrumentation (Peter Gabriel playing flute in between singing, keyboardist Tony Banks occasionally playing guitar parts, and synthesizer-like sounds produced without synthesizers, by doubling up doubled distorted guitar and electric piano).
