1. No 'Trick of the Tail'--that's their best, IMO.

Their first without Peter Gabriel, but before they totally sold out.

2. I've enjoyed your threads on this project.

I love your sister's album collection! I'll be sad when you're all done.

3. I'll still have all the albums.

Haven't found anyone who would want to buy the albums, yet.

Hopefully I can find a collector.

4. No "Selling England by the Pound", "Duke", "Lamb" or "Abacab"?

Gotta add those to the mix or there's just too much missing awesomeness!

Oh, and the song You Might Recall from the album "Three Sides Live".

5. No "Trespass"? How about "In The Beginning", "The Lamb", "Selling England", "Wind & Wuthering",...

 

... "Trick of the Tail"?

I took the one with the plastic toys as an omen that the band had run its course. "And Then There Were Three" was named as such because it was the first album after Steve Hackett left. "Duke" wasn't terrible, but unfortunately it marked their entry into the world of pop with "Misunderstanding" (the worst song on the album).

Trivia: "In The Beginning" was originally released in the U.K. with the title "From Genesis to Revelation". When they picked the name "Genesis", there was already a band by that name so they changed it to "Revelation" (hence the title). Before entering the US market, the other band had folded so they went back to using "Genesis" and the US release was called "In The Beginning". Then they must have discovered psychotropic drugs or something before recording "Trespass" - no similarity in style at all.

6. I was just looking at a picture of Genesis when they had just started.



And all that happened to them, the weird shows, the break-ups, reunions, etc...

I couldn't help but think "Spinal Tap!"

8. I never knew Rutherford was that tall, but Hackett's the one with the aluminum foil cucumber.

7. Awesome

Great albums all!

I've been recording a lot of my vinyl over to CD lately, it's a time consuming process but well worth it. I got a Audiophile 2496 sound card by M-Audio for my Mac a while back and it really seems to preserve a lot of the detail in the recordings, a lot better than the stock sound card.

9. The first two are great.

As are "Selling England By The Pound," "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway," "A Trick of the Tail" and "Wind and Wuthering."

Genesis was pretty much over when Steve Hackett left.
