Live Rails is an album by musician Steve Hackett. It was recorded during the tour around the release of Out of the Tunnel's Mouth. It is also the first of Hackett's official live releases since The Tokyo Tapes to feature a significant number of Genesis songs. Their inclusion foreshadows the Genesis Revisited tours that would occur several years later. A related release to this one is the Fire and Ice DVD, also recorded around the same time, which includes more emphasis on Genesis-era tracks.
