3 stars This is where I first heard Gabriel-era Genesis in my early teens - my big brother had it. It's not an 'official' compilation but of some seedy series which one can see especially from the back cover. But the front cover pictures are interesting: a slipperman (with Steve & Mike) and Rael (up left) which is unlogical as there is no music from the Lamb. This concentrates on NURSERY CRYME and FOXTROT, and foolishly it has to be 'I Know What I Like' representing the fabulous Selling England. Nothing from Trespass or Genesis Live either. And to include both 'Harold The Barrel' and 'Harlequin' is a bit stupid too. Anyway, it was exciting to listen to 'Supper's Ready' when I hadn't yet found prog at all, not to speak of epics. But it was 'Fountain of Salmacis', a full- packed mini epic about the Greek myth of Hermafroditus, that impressed me the most.

P.S. I DON'T feel proud writing about all-too-over-reviewed Genesis, but the words "not rated" have an effect on me...
