Surely as you say. The same happened toe. I knew first TSL and this version is the best of all. Absolutely emotional with Phil at his best. Stunning song.

I think exactly the same than you. As a difference I like the original version too, as a perfect closing of this fantastic album. But the TSL version is by far the best of all Afterglow versions out there.

Agree with this

Me too---it's a great song telling a tale---with some humor---very Genesis----and great Hackett guitar work at the end elevating the song even further---which is what Steve does.Wink

Yes, and that is absolutely right. Banks and/or Rutherford the main songwritters and Hackett and/or Collins the arrangers who help to carry the songs to higher levels, a perfect combinantion that almost always worked perfectly. That's why Calling all stations did not work so well. And Rutherford says something about this on his book.

First vote for All in a Mouse's Night! As with the other tracks, the music is great but I particularly like the story-telling and humor in this one.

Yeah ok, on second thoughts some of those lyrcis you mention are pretty good. I didn;t realise they were all Banks lyrics.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

In fact, for me, all of these tracks in the list are great music.

Another vote for One For The Vine. A fine song and one of Banks' best compositions.
