    This album, 'Selling England By The Pound' is the 5th studio album by 'Genesis' Released in 1973 on Charisma Records. It reached #3 on the album charts.(in the UK). The US single ' I Know What I Like(In Your Wardrobe) was a big hit from this album.
    The reason for this album is guitarist Steve Hackett. This is his third album with the band and his favorite. Steve Hackett is in concert tonite again. 3-4-20. He is playing at the Filmore(State) Theatre in downtown Detroit. And will be playing this album in it's entirety plus his solo music. I have tickets with a friend. Front row balcony, so a superb viewing spot.
    Steve has had a very successful solo career since his departure from the band in 1977.
    The album consists of:
    Peter Gabriel - vocals, flute, oboe, percussion.
    Tony Banks - keyboards, 12 string guitar.
    Stephen Hackett - Electric guitar, nylon guitar.
    Micheal Rutherford - bass, 12 string, electric guitar.
    Phil Collins - drums, percussion, vocal.

    Very cool cover painting by Betty Swanwick.

    Thanx for listening

      He is considering I've heard thru the grapevine, a Genesis reunion with him back in the lineup.

      Thomas I don't think that is going to happen, at least not with Steve Hackett. But the other three, Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony banks will be on a short tour over in England later this yr. With Phil's son on drums as Phil can no longer play because of hand problems. He also has to sit the entire how. It looks like Daryl Stuermer will be on guitar(he has been with them a long time) Here is some info on it. Thanx buddy!

      Thanx also to Newfld, Watchsearcher & Trey for stopping by!

      Iggy, Less than 24 hours ago, Steve hinted at a possible Genesis reunion. On several media outlets.

      Thomas I stand corrected, sorry to doubt you buddy. I looked around and found this article.

      Thanx aura and vetraio50!

      All Cool! It was just recent. However, like you, I don't see it. They are both on tour at the same time. Though, they are only a day apart in some cities. So far, Genesis I believe has only announced dates for the U.K., a test run perhaps. Maybe Steve will come on stage at one or two of their shows when he has a off night and they are playing?? Don't know.

      I missed seeing Steve Hackett in LA which is too bad. His solo in Firth of the Fifth (or the other way around) is a classic.
      Mega classic album. Some of their best song writing/compositions.
      We need more bass pedals!

      Thanx fortapche, too bad you missed him. It was an incredible show, almost 3 hrs long.
      Thanx Nicefice!
      Thomas that sounds like a good possibility.
