PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This is Genesis`second single for Decca Records, released in May 1968. Both songs of this single were also released by Decca for the first time in an L.P. called "Rock Roots: Genesis", in May 1976, in the same Mono versions as when they were released in the single format.

"A Winter`s Tale" is a vey good song, another love song composed by teenagers. Peter Gabriel sings with feeling, while Tony Banks plays the piano. The song also has acoustic guitars, bass and drums, plus an organ part played more in the background. The backing vocals are also good.

"One-Eyed Hound" is "a more conventional Rock song", with somewhat weird lyrics This song also has electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass, drums, piano, organ and backing vocals.

This single also wasn`t successful, and I also think that with adecuate promotion by Decca and their producer, this single could have been successful, as both singles doesn`t sound very far from the Pop Rock style that other English bands of those years played.

It seems that this single was the last contribution of drummer Chris Stewart for Genesis. He left the band to continue his school education, or maybe he was fired. I think that he was a good drummer for the band then.

2 stars A definite improvement over the "Silent Sun" single but still not as good as the best tracks from the debut. "A Winter's Tale" is easily the better track. Beginning and closing with piano there is a rather odd sounding organ holding the background throughout. Two part vocals and reasonably good (though still pretty amateur) song development in this song that reminds me a bit of early Badfinger's "Carry On till Tomorrow," at least in the quieter sections. There is a subdued section and a swelling heartfelt louder one which alternate back and forth. The flip side "One Eyed Hound" opens with a cool lead riff with acoustic backing and some saturated bass. There are some heavy effects on the chorus vocals too as Pete wails about the hound. Still forgettable but a hair better than the other single, so we'll round this up to 2 stars. Not recommended unless you can hear it on the reissue CD for the first album.

2 stars I don't own this single, but I want to write about this two songs since they aren't really part of the From Genesis to Revelation album, although of course I know the two tracks from one of many From Genesis To Revelation reissues. Ithink they are worth talking about, given that they are easily the better ones of Genesis's early career.

A Winter's Tale is quite a decent piece of music, a sympathetic piano ballad which (despite its amateurish nature, especially the drum work which is authentically school-band-like) creates a wonderful melancholic mood. For example there are cozy organ backings in the first stanza sounding quite like a church organ and Peter Gabriel uses his unique voice to great effect. But the most interesting thing is the bombastic chorus where the Farfisa/Vox/or-whatever organ and the solid backing vocals create quite a wall of sound which would sound quite impressive with an adequate production. A nice piano interlude repeats the melody of the chorus afterwards and hints at Tony Banks's talent of working with musical themes. The last chorus is also worth listening to as Peter Gabriel (contrary to the rest of the early Genesis pieces) sings quite expressively with this baaing vocal style for which he should later be famous for. I don't know who wrote the lyrics for this piece, but lines like 'the winter's bitterness begins, it's the fireside warmth that comforts me' are some kind of tasty and well-done in my book.

One-Eyed Hound is totally a predecessor to Harold the Barrel, albeit by far simpler and constructed as a softer pendant to the Rolling Stones or the Beatles. In fact, the stanzas are actually quite uninteresting whilst in special the This man committed a sin backing vocals annoy me heavily. But I must admit that the catchy riff and the rocking, nearly Kinks-like chorus are very pleasant. A thing which should be written about is the guitar work here that is a bit rough, but nonetheless inventive and playful; listen to the country lick in 1:45 or the strange, muffled sound in the beginning combined with the acoustic guitar: Anthony Phillips should later be the master of strange guitar sounds, for example his typical guitar (Stagnation or Which Way the Wind Blows) of which I still don't know if it is electrically or acoustically recorded. And there's this cozy organ around 2:10 which has the total charming school band feeling.

Not more than two stars for this record. The music is still well-behaved, but it points into the direction the band already went in late 1969 with the Jackson Tapes. Only recommendable for those who want to recapitulate the history of the band, and for those who like amateur 1960s pop music with an eccentric twist.

2 stars Every bit as hard to find as the other Decca single and just as unnecessary to own. You can find this mix on various versions of from genesis to revelation. Rare because of poor sales , like so many rare records this is hardly a surprise. This single is certainly pop and "The Silent sun" meant ... (read more)
