The songs that made it on the Abacab album don't count.

I think I've only heard Naminanu and Paperlate.  Of those two I prefer Naminanu.  Seems a little like it would pair well with Keep It Dark.  Perhaps a little too much Brand Xish for Abacab.

Released date are often when it it impacted you but recorded dates are when it really happened...

I've only heard two but I like only one of those.

You Might Recall is a nice song. I like it just a little bit better than Paperlate.

I'd have to listen to those songs again, but I always really liked th vibe and feel of Paperlate, which I think might have been a good replacement for No Reply at all.

Does anyone know where I could get hold of thes songs in any format? Preferably CD, but MP3 would be fine. I have Three Sides Live on CD, but it doesn't hav the studio tracks that side 4 of the vinyl had.

I would rather keep No Reply At All and throw away Who Dunnit?

They're available on Genesis Archive #2 1976-1992 which is out of print and is also on the extra tracks of the 1976-1982 Box Set

Thanks for the info. I had hoped to avoid re-purchasing albums, but I guess I should expand my collection. I was given a 100 Amazon voucher at work recently..
