Notes: Although Genesis played their first overseas gig in Belgium and made several trips to that country in 1971 and early 1972, they scheduled their first prolonged overseas tour in the first country to truly embrace them. Twenty-three shows were scheduled in April, 1972 and such were their popularity they played in the biggest venues in their young career and many of the shows were taped from the audience for posterity. They played two shows at the Piper Club in Rome on April 18th and this (it isn’t clear if it’s the early or late show) is one of the most detailed and vivid documents in existence of the early stage show. This is a full bodied, three dimensional that captures the bass in particular very well. Earlier releases of this tape can be found on Live In Roma (Tintagel TICD 009) and Piper Club(PMPCDBL9801), which also has “Bye Bye Johnny” (aka “Can-Utility And The Coastliners”). But Highland is a slight upgrade over the older releases. Long Ago In The Rome Hills is an older Highland title but still one of their finest efforts very much worth having.<-(Info taken from collectorsmusicrreview).

This blog is merely an index with public links for audio recordings of independent origin (ROIO) which have not been officially released. No audio or video content is hosted here. We only provide meta information files for the ROIOs. If you're an artist (or a legal representative of an artist or its estate) and you don't want your ROIOs shared on this blog for FREE among your fans, you may opt out any time by sending e-mail to the site admin. We will then put you in our list of not allowed artists. This will halt all sharing of your ROIOs in this blog within minutes. BTW, the ROIOs exist, you can't make them vanish. So, why not let your fans get them for free from one another instead of having to purchase them from commercial bootleggers on auction sites?
