I've been listening to Transatlantic's Live in America which has covers of Watcher of the Skies and Firth of Fifth. I really like these songs and I was rather surprised to find out that they were originally recorded by Genesis. Up until that point all I knew about Genesis was that they were a trio that produced pop music. Yes, I've read some references to them in various prog threads but I never put much thought into it. Peter Gabriel was in Genesis? That's a bit of a shock. Anyway, back to the original question. What albums do I want to get as my first 70's era Genesis? I ask because I once asked a friend what Bowie album I should get and I suggested a greatest hits album. He said that I HAD to start with Ziggy Stardust if I wanted to 'get' what Bowie was all about. So, is there a Genesis album like this? I see from Amazon that The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and Selling England by the Pound are pretty popular. Should I start with one of them? How is Foxtrot? It has 'Watcher' on it so I have some reason to want that one as well. Help me out please. I'm not a big fan of later Genesis so I don't want to accidently go down that road.
