AllMusic Review by

From 1971 to 1977, Steve Hackett was the lead guitarist with Genesis, and helped define the sound of one of Britain's most acclaimed progressive rock bands on such albums as Foxtrot, A Trick of the Tail, and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Since leaving the group, Hackett has enjoyed a long and successful solo career, but in 1997, he took a fresh look at some of his favorite selections from his years with Genesis on the album Watcher of the Skies: Genesis Revisited. A second album of classic Genesis tunes, Genesis Revisited II, appeared in 2012, and Hackett supported the album with an international concert tour. Genesis Revisited: Live at Hammersmith documents a performance from the British leg of the tour, with Hackett and a top-notch band bringing new fire to a set of prog rock favorites. Selections include "Watcher of the Skies," "Broadway Melody of 1974," "In That Quiet Earth," "Supper's Ready," and many more. Special guests for this show include John Wetton, Nik Kershaw, Steve Rothery, and Amanda Lehmann.
