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

Okay, I've been seeing this in my head since I wrote that comment ...

Geezus, hard to follow THAT!

Trespass needs its props, dammit.  Awesome album.  Nascent genius.

Your Genesis lyric of the day:

"Looking for someone, I guess I'm doing that,
 Trying to find a mem'ry in a dark room.
 Dirty man, you're looking like a Buddha,
 I know you well - yeah!

 Keep on a straight line, I don't believe I can,
 Trying to find a needle in a haystack.
 Chilly wind you're piercing like a dagger,
 It hurts me so - yeah!

 Nobody needs to discover me,
 I'm back again.
 You see the sunlight through the trees to keep you warm,
 In peaceful shades of green.
 Yet in the darkness of my mind, Damascus wasn't far behind.

 Lost in a subway, I guess I'm losing time,
 There's a man looking at a magazine.
 You're such a fool, your mumbo-jumbo
 Never tells me anything - yeah!

 Nobody needs to discover me,
 I'm back again.
 You feel the ashes from the fire that kept you warm,
 Its comfort disappears,
 But still the only friend I know
 Would never tell me where I go.

 Looking for someone,
 And now I've found myself a name.
 Come away, leave me,
 All that I have I will give.
 Leave me, leave me,
 All that I am I will give."

"Looking for Someone" - Trespass, 1970

 

You know what Genesis song this reminds me of?  This is like a tamer version of "Back in NYC" to me.  Your thoughts?

It actually reminds me of The Lamb as a whole (as one who recently listened to the whole thing for the first time, even though I've owned it for 30 years).

It appears PG had a fascination with getting lost in subways for awhile.  And this:

You're such a fool, your mumbo-jumbo
 Never tells me anything - yeah!

... totally reminds me of "Don't look at me, I'm not your kind ... I'm Raaaaaaaaaaaeeeellllll!!!"

Your Genesis Lyric of the Day:

"Dragons breathing fire, but friendly,
 Mushrooms tall as houses.
 Giant nymphs and goblins playing,
 Scenes from a night's dream, poor Little Nemo."

"Scenes from a Night's Dream" - ...And Then There Were Three..., 1978

That's one of the harder albums for me to wrap my head around.  Even nestled in the rich fields of The Hentschel Years, it's my least favorite of the band's oevre.  I'm listening to the album soon, the ol' Sandisk is currently paused at the beginning of "Dance on a Volcano" on Seconds Out.

 

Tour rehearsals, eh?  SOMEONE has more boots than I.  Aw, who am I kidding; almost everyone has more boots than I.  :(

Your Genesis Lyric of the Day:

"Wearing feelings on our faces while our faces took a rest,
 We walked across the fields to see the children of the West.
 But we saw a host of dark-skinned warriors standing still below the ground, waiting for battle!

 The fight's begun they've been released; killing foe for peace.
 Bang, bang, bang.
 Bang, bang, bang.
 And they're giving me a wonderful potion
 Cos I cannot contain my emotion,
 And even though I'm feeling good, something tells me I'd better
 Activate my prayer capsule!"

(cue one of the greatest guitar solos ever)

"Supper's Ready" - Foxtrot, 1972

I have about 10 different "favorite parts" to Supper's Ready.

The best thing about the Calling All Stations tour (for me) was the unplugged "Lover's Leap" in the middle of the show.  Woo-HOO!

The Genesis Movement Torrent Site would change that within a week.  :)

Aki, give it some time and a few more plays. There's a couple of clunkers on the album, but the four part "Duke suite" and one or two other tracks are standouts.

"Man of Our Times" is an all-time favorite.
