Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars In March 1978, GENESIS released their first album recorded as a trio, titled "...and then there were three...". They also did a very long tour that year that included some dates in Japan, in late November-early December of that year, which in fact were the last dates of that very long tour. I don't know if that was the first time they visited Japan as part of a tour. Anyway, the Nippon Phonogram record label took the opportunity to release this 2-LP set compilation then. I don't know if this album was released before or after those Japanese tour dates, but maybe it was released there before those tour dates, to promote the tour and also to help the band to have more fans of their music there. In fact, the front cover of the album has a photo taken during that tour which also shows tour musicians Chester Thompson and Daryl Stuermer.

In late 1979, I saw in my city, in a now defunct record shop, several copies of this Japanese compilation, being sold at a very expensive price (being imported from Japan, a not very often thing done in those years, at least in my country). Some of the copies were open, so I remember that I could see the eight page color booklet which was included in the gatefold cover of the album, which also included the lyrics (in the English and Japanese languages), some text in Japanese (maybe about the story of the band), and some photos from the band from the early seventies up to 1978. I never bought it, of course, at that very expensive price.

Anyway, I consider this compilation album from Japan as a very good compilation. It includes songs from every album they released in the Charisma Records label from 1970 to 1978 (from "Trespass" to "...and then there were three..."), in chronological order. And the selection of the songs is very representative of their best music from those years. Their only album which was excluded from this compilation was their first album ("From Genesis to Revelation"), which was released in 1969 by another record label (Decca). But it doesn't matter very much, because that album is different in musical style to the music they were going to record in the future, at least in Progressive Rock music terms. So, if you want to pay for this expensive compilation album (which I think it still can be bought in some record collectors's websites and some collectors's record shops around the world) maybe you could not be disappointed.
