Genesis “Selling England By The Pound”
Your 1973 recording of “Selling England by the Pound” is Today’s Cool Album of the Day.
Genesis is one of my favorite bands. Genesis IS my favorite live band. My seeing them at an “Invitation Only: Full Dress Rehearsal Show” for a hand full of people in 2007 will most likely never be topped as a music experience!
‘Selling England By The Pound’ was the penultimate album with Peter Gabriel as their costume wearing front man. He left the machinery two years later after recording and touring for ‘The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.’
“Selling” contains two of my favorite pieces. ‘The Cinema Show’ and ‘Firth of Fifth.’ Both contributing to their live shows for years. Other highlights include ‘Dancing with the Moonlit Knight’ and ‘I Know What I Like (in Your Wardrobe)”
