Here are the words of the Genesis in 2007, on the occasion of the release of the 2008 in Digital Remaster and Stereo Mix version:

Phil Collins in its autobiography, No, I'm not dead yet, remember those days when Genesis made the album. Creative freedom, abundant influx of ideas, length of songs, freedom of maneuver in the composition sessions. They are the elements of the first disc of the new formation, from Phil's point of view.

Steve Hackett, in Genesis. The river of constant change di Mario Giammetti, tells how it was he who pushed the band to buy the mellotron, fundamental tool in The Fountain Of Salmacis and in the next Genesis sound. He told his teammates that if they wanted to make a quantum leap, they absolutely must have a mellotron, thus obtaining an orchestral dimension.

Here is how it is remembered in the video taken from the DVD Inside Genesis:

Mike rutherford, in his book The living years, he says that Nursery Cryme was not an easy disc to write, perhaps also because of the group's new dynamics, without Anthony Phillips and with Steve Hackett and Phil Collins. To know more:

The two new arrivals are the protagonists of For Absent Friendsinstead The Musical Box e The Return Of The Giant Hogweed they had already been composed and, above all the first, with a strong imprint of Ant. With Harold The Barrell Peter ushered in a series of stories from the standpoint humor English. Harlequin e Seven Stones they are the result of the personal creativity of Mike and Tony (but always with Phillips' "hand").

In Italy, the album took fourth place. Our country, after Belgium, was the one that gave more satisfaction to the Genesis, in those early years. Critics also promote them to us.
