More information: Formed by ex-Charterhouse pupils Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Peter Gabriel and Anthony Phillips, Genesis were named by fellow former pupil, the now shamed music impresario and former television presenter, Jonathan King, who arranged for them to record several unsuccessful singles and their debut album From Genesis to Revelation in 1968.
After splitting with King, the group began to tour professionally, signed with Charisma Records and recorded Trespass (1970), as well as a spectacular radio session for the BBC’s Nightride programme.
Following the departure of Phillips, Genesis recruited Phil Collins and Steve Hackett and recorded Nursery Cryme in 1971. It was this classic line-up that recorded a number of further sessions for Radio One’s Sounds Of The Seventies show in 1971 and 1972.
All these sessions remain previously unreleased, but this CD changes all that and features the full live recordings.
