On 20 January 1973 the Italian part of the Foxtrot Take the Tour of the Genesis (second date on the 22nd in Rome - LOOK). Here are notes and images of that evening.

The first very famous photo of the third landing on the Genesis peninsula, after two of the previous year, is this one, at the Cral Club of the'Linate airport in Milan, in a press conference together with the Lindisfarne, who have just arrived in Italy. Here she is:

The concert is part of the Charisma Festival, like the subsequent Rome date - on stage with Genesis other bands, with a last minute variation of dates as seen from the poster above -. And here's the "right" one:

Now the recording of the concert:


00:00 - Watcher Of The Skies;

01:21:28 - The Knife.

A look at Peter's costumes. For Watcher Of The Skies has not yet adopted bat wings, but looks like this:

On the ending of The Musical Boxthen the twist. Peter appears with the red dress of his wife Jill and the fox mask.

A historic moment, this, for the Genesis, inaugurated on September 28 of the previous year in Dublin, the beginning of an era of masks and disguises, even if not completely shared by the other members of the band.

Even in Supper's Ready the famous costumes have not yet appeared. Peter will insert them in a month in the English part of the tour. In Italy, at the end of  Apocalypse in 9/8 looks like this:

READ WHY

Collector's Corner: Phil Collins's “In The Air Tonight” turns 40, was released on January 5, 1981

The single from "In the Air Tonight"came out on 5 January 1981. Videos and memories of a huge success.

Select Language

English English Italiano Italiano

Collector's Corner: click on the image and see the latest offers on Ebay.

In his autobiography:

Phil Collins says that the song In The Air Tonight it was composed 99,9 percent spontaneously, the words flowed out of nowhere.

Again from the autobiography, Phil admits that instinctive truth emerges from raw emotion. Afterwards, in fact, he realized that the texts and the message of In The Air Tonight they are considerably higher than their sum
set off. There is a subliminal, subconscious aspect. These words adapt to music. The verses have a little bit of storyline, but there is not necessarily a connection between them and the anger he felt then, after the break with Andrea Bertorelli.

Collins admits that the words have been studied and dissected by many people over and over again. A guy gave him a thesis he had made for his degree; he had analyzed how many times he had used the article "the". Other people suggest conspiracy theories about a real drowning that Phil once witnessed. "What does it mean In The Air Tonight? ", says Phil." Does that mean I'm going on with my life, or trying to do it, "he replies.

Why didn't the song go into a Genesis album? In his precious memoirs Phil remembers that Tony Banks he often said that his songs only have three chords and, as such, were unworthy of being "Genesisised". For Banks In The Air Tonight it's just one drum machine and three chords. 

The way Phil makes the album that will become his first soloist,  Face Value,

establishes a method for future compositions. Collins records all the rumors in his home. Sing in an improvised way. Plays and writes what he sings. Write down what you have just sung. Sometimes the material is almost completely formed, other times it is useless and disposable. A song develops, slowly or quickly. 

Where does that drum sound come from that will characterize Phil Collins' future albums, but will influence much of the 80's sound?

The drummer and singer explicitly thanks Hugh Padgham. Hugh is a bass player but loves drums and has developed that innovative sound on the song of Peter Gabriel Intruder. In hindsight, Phil admits that the day or two they spent working on Peter's third album in 1979 changed his life.

So when it was time to find a sound for the drums of In The Air TonightPhil wants to experience the sound they had made with Gabriel.

But, Phil admits, what the finished product is actually with is as extreme as it is in Intruder. Even if you place the mics in the same place and try to recreate the effects for the same sound, it will always be something different. What's more, the result changes every day. Different day, different result.

In any case, that Drum Fill has entered the history of rock: people always ask about it, says Phil. A point of reference for subsequent productions. 

In The Air Tonight initially reached number 1 in the Netherlands, becoming later a worldwide success. Even sales of Face Value they are excellent.

Tony Banks revealed in 2014 in the BBC documentary Sum of the parts

"We wanted Phil to do well. But not so well."

A song that has had many cover version, as can be heard in these selected tracks.

Collector's Corner: Genesis, first show of the Wind & Wuthering Tour at the Rainbow Theater, January 1, 1977

On January 1, 1977, after the release of Wind & Wuthering (buy it on Amazon), eighth studio album, Genesis begin the tour from the Rainbow Theater in London.

Select Language

English English Italiano Italiano

Here is the bootleg, recorded the next day:

Click on the image and bid on Ebay to buy the record.

January 1, 1977, historic concert for Genesis, with Live at the Rainbow Theater in London, in Finsbury Park, on the day of reopening after 3 years. Chester Thompson's debut on drums.

Three consecutive dates, effectively the start of a new six-month tour, with the album Wind & Wuthering fresh fresh out.

There is a significant variation in training. Bill Bruford, who had faced the Trick Tour, replaced by Chester Thompson, which, as we know, will remain loyal to Genesis & Co. to this day.

Chester had very little time to learn Genesis songs, as he arrived from the USA in mid-December.

Tickets and the tour program unofficial:

Click on the images to see the other pages and collect the unofficial tour program

Here is the audio recording of the New Year's date. A lineup that will remain unique, inaugurated by Eleventh Earl of Mar and with a medley between Lilywhite Lilith, The Waiting Room and Wot Gorilla, never repeated. Just before starting the three songs, an instrument stops working and, as someone starts fumbling with it, Phil is heard joking about it and says: "Of course for 3000 pounds, that's what could have worked!" 

00:00 - Eleventh Earl Of Mar;
08:35 - The Carpet Crawlers;
14:47 - Firth Of Fifth;
24:19 - Your Own Special Way;
31:21 - Robbery, Assault & Battery;
38:23 - In That Quiet Earth;
42:49 - Afterglow;
48:26 - Lillywhite Lillith;
51:51 - Wot Gorilla;
54:53 - One For The Vine;
01:04:36 - Squonk;
01:11:54 - All In A Mouse's Night;
01:19:23 - Supper's Ready;
01:44:22 - I Know What I Like;
01:50:51 - Dance On A Volcano / Drum Duet / Los Endos.

From the second date the lineup changes and a transformation begins that will remain so throughout the English tour. Here is the audio recording of January 3:

00:00 - Eleventh Earl Of Mar;
08:31 - The Carpet Crawlers;
14:48 - Robbery, Assault & Battery;
21:16 - Your Own Special Way;
27:28 - Squonk;
34:48 - One For The Vine;
45:41 - Firth Of Fifth;
55:17 - All In A Mouse's Night;
01:03:17 - Supper's Ready;
01:27:42 - I Know What I Like;
01:35:21 - Dance On A Volcano;
01:39:43 - Los Endos;
01:45:31 - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway / The Musical Box.

And here's an audio frominterview released on Christmas Eve, in London, a few days before the start of the tour.

La scenography of the concert and tour is the very famous one on the cover of Seconds Out.

A wall of lights, lasers, projectors, columns of amplifiers, to support a band that no longer has a charismatic leader like Peter Gabriel and focuses on musical and visual quality.

And speaking of Peter Gabriel. It is present at the inaugural evening of the Rainbow. And, like the critics, who welcome the three shows at the beginning of the year with good but cold reviews, he has no words of praise for the first performance of 1977. "At the Raimbow I was a little disappointed - Peter tells Melody Maker, reported in Genesis. The river of constant change di Mario Giammetti -".

The Genesis are not satisfied either, the amalgam with the new drummer is insufficient and will consolidate in the following weeks, but the Rainbow opportunity is tempting and cannot be missed. They will improve, in fact, during the tour, until the month of June, when at the Palazzo dello Sport in Paris they will record the shows that will become part of the magnificent live album Seconds Out.

But that's another, next story.
