Instead of that boxy thing he wore, imagine Gabriel coming out in a Galactus outfit during Apocolypse in 9/8 ...

Just listening to Supper's Ready.
Y'know, if there were ever a five man reunion I just might pony up the bucks just to hear them play this live.
With todays technology and instrumentation I wonder how it would sound.

Your Genesis lyric of the day:

"A dusty table
Musty smells
Tarnished silver lies discarded upon the floor
Only feeble light descends through a film of grey
That scars the panes.
Gone the carving,
And those who left their mark,
Gone the kings and queens now only the rats hold sway
And the weak must die according to nature's law
As old as they."

"Time Table" - Foxtrot, 1972

Be back with another tomorrow.

Gotta say ... I'm immersing myself in early Genesis for the first time. 

Today, I listened to some "early studio sessions" with stuff like Stagnation, Twilight Alehouse, Looking for Someone and Happy the Man ... and really connected with those songs for the first time.  I'll be listening to this era quite a bit more, methinks...

I'm also finally discovering The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway ... for some reason, I never got into that record ... listening to the stream on Wolfgang's Vault as I type this.  :)

I think you'll find it's just as rewarding as the Genesis you first "met".  I hopped on board with Abacab - quite possibly the album that LOST them the most fans - and I was able to follow the often thin thread between that band and the one you're dipping a toe into.  I can still remember the day I recognized the bit in "Stagnation" that I first heard on "I Know What I Like" on Seconds Out.  Plus the older stuff has the sense of whimsy that I absolutely flat-out adore.  So today's Your Genesis Lyric of the Day I recommend to Mr. Gene(sis) Best.  Dig Banks on the pie-anny!

"Up on the ledge beside him, his mother made a last request:
'Come off the ledge; if your father were alive he'd be very very very upset!
 You just can't jump!
 You just can't jump!
 Your shirt's all dirty; there's a man here from the BBC!"

"Harold the Barrel" - Nursery Cryme, 1971

Tomorrow: one from Calling All Stations!

Bill -

Nick DV is an incredible talent.  He seems to pop up all the time - he was also on a lot of Kevin Gilbert stuff, as well as the last Tears for Fears album/tour.

 

Kevin -

I remember my "Stagnation"/"I Know What I Like" moment, too, back in 1978 or so ... Seconds Out had become a second language for me, and I'd found Trespass in a discount bin.  It was such a nice surprise to discover that motif, as I listened to the album the first time.  I even remember calling my friends with the news.  LOL

Now playing:  Nursery Chryme.  It's cool to go back and listen to stuff you didn't care for - and find that you like it more than you remember.

Your Genesis Lyric of the Day

"Statues carved right out of stone, out of wood, made from gold -
 Praying for their mercy, that won't save their souls.

 Don't you know what means the earth to some or only one
 Can mean just nothing nothing nothing to another?

 There are only dreams like any other.
 There are only hopes and beliefs one like any other
 Worth living but not dying for,
 Living but not dying for not killing for."

"One Man's Fool" - Calling All Stations, 1997

Tomorrow: a lost classic

Calling All Stations ... a not-entirely-bad record that probably should have been released under a different name.  Some really nice moments, though ... and Ray Wilson is truly a talent.

"A lost classic" has me wondering ...  :)
