GENESIS
King Biscuit Flower Hour
Live In Philadelphia Two Part Special
Live at The Spectrum
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
27 November 1983
Original Airdates:
Part I - 20 May 1984
Part II - 27 May 1984
1984 pre-FM Quadruple Vinyl LP (Side 4 on both is blank)

On their hugely successful Mama Tour, Genesis played three consecutive nights at The Spectrum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; 25 - 27 November 1983. The third night was recorded by King Biscuit, and the material is certainly different from the Genesis - Captured Live! CL 4184 A-D recording recorded on the previous night, 26 November. The mix on this show is a little heavier on bass and audience noise, making for a fuller experience. This show is the original source of the live version of Turn It On Again containing snippets of famous songs - now affectionately known as "That Damn Medley" - released as the B-Side of Genesis - Illegal Alien and appearing on the compilation Genesis - Turn It On Again - Best Of '81 - '83. A shortened version of this show was also broadcast by King Biscuit in September of 1984, found here: Genesis - King Biscuit Flower Hour: Best Of The Biscuit Live In Philadelphia.
