Genesis Selling England By The Pound 180g Vinyl LP
Half Speed Mastered / Pressed at Pallas in Germany
One of the top-selling, most respected, and often imitated recording artists of all time, Genesis has moved over 150 million albums to date amidst numerous personnel and stylistic changes. Still, nothing beats Genesis' early era which included Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett's tenure with the group and saw the band produce their most adventurous and groundbreaking albums.
1973's Selling England By The Pound is the follow-up to Genesis' 1972 breakthrough album Foxtrot and fifth album overall. The 8-song set featured the same line-up as its predecessor and grew the group’s popularity even further with their inventive storytelling and arrangements coming into sharp focus on tracks such as “The Cinema Show,” “Firth Of Fifth” and their first U.K. hit single, “I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe).” The album also marks Phil Collins' foreshadowing lead vocal debut for the band on the acoustic number "More Fool Me."
"The music they produced with Peter Gabriel is, without a doubt, some of the finest prog rock ever recorded. Selling England By the Pound was Gabriel's second-to-last work with the group, and it was the last time they really worked together as a full creative unit. There's hardly a stinker on the whole thing, but if you just hear one song, put on "Firth of Fifth." Steve Hackett's guitar solo is out of this world." - Rolling Stone
