    Fascinating — and to be honest I enjoyed the work-in-progress versions too. I missed out on this tour, being fractionally too young and too poor to attend, so It’s great to have an exegesis to accompany the Youtube versions.

    I initially did a double-take at I Don’t Remember being described in terms of being a Genesis-like ballad, as the album it appeared on was very significant for me, especially in terms of the sound (both Bush’s and Gabriel’s use of the Fairlight excited me far more than most of their successors), and I remember I Don’t Remember as being very spiky.

    But I listened to the Youtube version and you’re quite right. The early version he played at the concert really does sound like Genesis. Weirdly, it sounds a bit like post-Gabriel Genesis.
