Genesis - The BBC Recordings 1970-1972



I am really glad that so many kind folks have encouraged DaddyRich to put up some of the classic Genesis rarities that are in my collection. Seeing and hearing their beginnings will really serve to make one weep to see what they became. But I guess it really all boils down to money in the music business, right? Oh wait, you say Peter Gabriel did his thing and never compromised and STILL made loads of cash? Interesting. Oddly enough, one of the better stories about their origin and break-up was on VH1 a few years ago and I highly recommend anyone watch it if it plays again. Enough of me and my recommendations, here is a great early BBC collection of the boys at their most experimental. Although I much prefer the 'Lamb Lies Down On Broadway' era Genesis, this stuff is too delciate and rare not to share with my great friends this time of year. This is just the beginning of these posts, more to come. Enjoy.
Yet another morning where I am in a hurry to Richie ready for school on time - last day before Christmas break for the little one's! Come on by today and hang out while DaddyRich plays the first disc of the Genesis Archive with the live performance of 'The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway' while he cleans the house. It is a sight to see.


track lists on the back disc scans and no more time to type. Hope you all enjoy.
