Foxtrot marked a decisive point in Genesis's career. An emerging art-rock band who were building up a growing cult following with a busy touring schedule, this album was an artistic and commercial landmark; it was their first album to chart. Including the classic "Watcher of the Skies" and Peter Gabriel's whimsically compassionate slice of life, "Get 'Em Out by Friday," the album's highlight is the ambitious sidelong epic "Supper's Ready." Comprising seven linked subsections, it was inspired apparently by a frightening experience where Gabriel's wife, Jill, felt she was possessed, and is a story of two lovers and the struggle between good and evil. Certainly it was the most innovative and entertaining piece the band had produced to date. The relatively rough production values could be seen as either detracting somewhat from the impact of the album or adding a pleasantly rough edge to what might otherwise be a somewhat prim sound. --James SwiftSee all Product description

This CD replaces a really worn out vinyl copy and I have to say that the re-mastering still does not transmit the power and majesty that was evident on the vinyl version but, that said, having a copy minus the clicks, rumbles and sound of wear and tear, brings a freshness to the proceedings and bearing in mind when this was recorded, remains a towering testimony to the birth of prog rock. The music, the masterful arrangements, the instruments and above all, the recording quality leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination. It is simply breathtaking and a breath of fresh air too, despite the age of the recording so that now when playing it at high decibels, I can sing along to my hearts content without having to await the pop and crackle that inevitably accompanied my old version.
If you, like me, were still stuck with a worn out vinyl copy...I really can recommend this CD version without hesitation.
Get back into vinyl everyone, cd's are a mistake!

Suppers Ready is a work of genius.
However, the 2008 re-mix is not good.
