On April 19, 1972 Genesis are live at the Mediterranean Theater in Naples.
A double concert that closes the first part of the Nursery cryme Tour of Genesis in Italy.
Here is the live audio:
00:00 - Happy The Man;
04:18 - Stagnation;
14:53 - The Fountain Of Salmacis;
23:20 - Twilight Alehouse;
32:14 - The Musical Box;
42:23 - The Return Of The Giant Hogweed;
49:11 - Phil's Solo;
51:24 - The Knife.
A date that will remain in the history of Genesis, because on the roof of the Hotel Domiziana, which houses the band, Mike and Tony write the text of Watcher Of The Sky.
The song is already being used for the sound check before the concerts. In Naples it is then completed and, as we know, the next Genesis album will open, to be released the following October: Foxtrot.
The Italian dates bring further luck to the Genesis, which confirm their success in our country. Not only that, returning home, Steve Hackett will meet Ellen, who will become his first wife and mother of Oliver.
And it does not end here: Genesis will return to Italy in August, for a second part of the tour. But that's another story.
