Genesis “Selling England by the Pound”

(1973) This one is much better– they pull off a good melody here and there– but they’re still over-playing, over-orchestrating, over-composing by about 6000%. There’s a little brown and white picture of the band on the lyrics sleeve– five guys in the band (including Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins), and they’re pretty cute! All with long hair, some beards– it’s hard to ever think of these guys as young, but they were young!

Okay– I remember this song (“I Know What I Like (in your Wardrobe)”)– really familiar. I must have put this one on a mix 8-track. “The Battle of Epping Forest”–ha! Wimpy! Boring!  Here are some good, mysterious notes from the lyrics sheet: “English Ribs (w/prices)/ Peek Freans Family Assorted/ Fairy Liquid Giant slashed/ Table Jellys/ Anchor Butter/ Birds Eye Dairy Cream Sponge/ It’s Scrambled Eggs!”
