Released in 1973 (the same year as their "Live" set) Genesis was by now one of the fastest rising groups o the pop scene. The band's blend of classical instinct, theatrical presentation, and whimsical, complex and daring arrangements put them in the same class as Yes, ELP, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, and Jethyro Tull as leaders of the British Progressve Rock era. Back in the studio where they could continue to experiment, the resulting "Selling England by the Pound" is considered (by some) equal to their masterpiece "Lamb Lies Down on Broadway". Truly a group effort and a great album of the 70's! In shades of things to come, drummer Phil Collins makes his vocal debut here on "More Fool Me".
