Genesis – 1975 BBC Transcription Disc Live ‘Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’ 1st UK Performance

An original BBC Transcription disc of Genesis recorded live on April 15, 1975 at at Empire Pool, Wembley, London, UK.  The band performs nearly an hour of songs from their current release, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.  The show was recorded by the BBC for broadcast, and this disc was issued in 1983 as part of their In Concert series (the catalog number is CN 4248/S).

BBC Transcription Discs were made in extremely limited numbers–perhaps 50 only–and sent to UK and British Commonwealth radio stations, which played them once, and then were supposed to return them to the BBC. As such, they are extremely rare and sought after. Many have been bootlegged, but the authentic ones–like this–have green and white labels and are very high quality pressings.

Side 1: Watcher Of The Skies/Cuckoo Cocoon/In The Cage/Back In New York City/The Chamber of 32 Doors

Side 2: Carpet Crawlers/Evil Jam/Anyway/The Light Goes Down on Broadway

Disc in mint/near mint condition, with the original innersleeve and generic BBC sleeve, but no cue sheet.
