Biography

The Genesis of the Seventies was a very different group from the Genesis of the Eighties and the Nineties - although not as different as some people would like to think.

Most of those who picked up on Genesis during the Eighties as their succession of hits encircled the globe had only the haziest idea of what had gone before. “In the later years there were people coming to our ... Read more in Amazon's Genesis Store

Genesis: Foxtrot Re-mastered CD & Vinyl (2008)

This was the album that established Genesis as one of the top progressive bands of the early 70s. Looking back it was really a major piece of work that was so different to what they had done previously. This album was a pleasure to listen to back in 1972 as it is today. I have the original vinyl copy and recently settled for the USA Import vinyl re-mastered box set due to quality problems with the UK released box set. The original vinyl release was never in my view a classical production/pressing that fully demonstrated Hi-Fi sound quality. It is amusing to see that the original record inner-sleeve contains a warning: `This long playing record is a high precision product that must be handled with care'. Clearly not by today's technically advancements but music companies still have difficultly making them as good as back in the 1970s even with 180/200grams of virgin vinyl. The re-mastered vinyl lacks some of the higher frequency range in places but it has clearer and more pronounced bass/percussion sound vs the original vinyl release.

I was playing extensively up to the re-issue of this re-master CD the Definitive Edition Release (DER) CD. This in my view is much better in sound quality compared to the Trespass and Nursery Cryme DER versions. I think this re-mastered Foxtrot CD version is also better than the DER version although the performance gap is not as much as for the Trespass and Nursery Cryme CDs. It has a slightly clearer, fuller sound that is more engaging to the listener. Although I think Trespass 2008 re-master is better in terms of the most sonically improvement vs the past CD releases, this re-mastered Foxtrot is the best CD overall in sound quality comparing all the 2008 re-masters.

This is the album where Genesis first showed what a talent they really were. Not one track is throwaway here and the best ones include "Watcher of the Skies". This classic is superbly atmospheric and its opening sounds like modern trance music. Gabriel's voice has clearly matured and provides some in depth character performances on numbers such as "Get 'em out by Friday,". "Time Table," is suitably melodic and has some great piano riffs in it. "Can utility and the Coastliners," has some great guitar solos from Hackett and has stood the test of time well. "Horizons," acts a melodic filler before the superb "Supper's Ready," which features great work from all the band members and is as good as any other equivalent prog-rock compositions of its time. An essential recording by Genesis - one of their best, if not the best.

This album illustrates quite simply some of the best prog-rock songs ever created, and culminates in the 20-minute masterpiece that is 'Supper's Ready', a fairy-tale/adventure story which is broken up into a number of different sections, of quite markable contrast (my personal favourite being the head-twistingly impossible 'Apocalypse in 9/8 (Co-starring the Delicious Talents of Gabble Ratchet)' , which sees the band cruising along effortlessly in a 9/8 time-signature in perfect synchronicity as if they were playing 12-bar blues!).
My advice; if you're looking for something challenging, or fancy diversifying your record collection a bit, then buy this album. It's definitely a "sit down and listen to in one go" type of album; and its quite possible that your first listen might leave you saying "huh..? what the heck?", but it seriously grows on you and reveals something new on every listen. Now how many albums can you honestly say that about?

I remember buying this not long after it came out. I was fourteen years old. In fact I bought Foxtrot and Nursery Cryme, on 12in vinyl of course, within a few weeks of each other. This album just blew me away. I would play it loud when my parents weren't home, I loved the whole album and I know it's rather cliche'd, but I especially liked Supper's Ready. I would read the sleeve notes and the words to the songs over and over again until I knew them by heart. I about wore the thing out on the old tin box we laughingly called a hi-fi back then. I have long since dispensed with vinyl but wish now I had kept my favourites, these two Genesis albums and of course Pink Floyds Dark Side to name but a few.
I have owned several CD versions over the years that have come and gone and recently I bought the remastered version. I don't pretend to be an audiophile, far from it, I just re-bought it because Foxtrot should be, and will be, in my library forever.
I have just played it right through, I am alone at home, my wife is at work, and once again I sit and listen all the way through, reading the words and listening to the story lines. I am transported back to my old bedroom, in the house I lived in with my parents and my sister......and, oh boy, such an emotional charge. Supper's ready is of course the very epitome of that group called Genesis, their very essence, their heart and soul, are contained within this piece, a magnum Opus indeed as one reviewer put it. I suppose if I had to pick a favourite subtrack then I guess it would have to be the grand finale, the seventh track "As sure as eggs is eggs". They went on to perform other great music of course, but for me, Foxtrot was, and is, the cream of the Genesis crop.
Yes I remember it like it was yesterday, I was fourteen, I was fully charged with raging boy-hormones, life was innocent then and this album STILL does it for me. Oh happy days !
