The Musical Box

A very early Genesis track featuring the core of Genesis talent. A young Peter Gabriel (vocals, bass drum, flute), Phil Collins (drums, backing vocals) , and Steve Hackett (guitars) seated, playing classically inspired riffs.  This live performance is a joy to behold, and to experience their enthusiasm and mastery of their craft leaves your life better for it.

It is widely argued that Genesis was one of the best examples of progressive/art rock until the departure of Peter Gabriel. Their live performances (subdued in this video) introduced bizarre and stylized costumes and props, pantomime and storytelling, and raucous explosions of energy.
