Analogue Productions (Atlantic Series) Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Atlantic Records! First Genesis album to feature drummer/vocalist Phil Collins! 180-gram 45 RPM double LP Mastered directly from the original master tape by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering Pressed at Quality Record Pressings Tip-on old style gatefold double pocket jackets with film lamination by Stoughton Printing Genesis' album Nursery Cryme, released in November 1971, marked a significant moment in the band's evolution and showcased the burgeoning talents of their new drummer and vocalist, Phil Collins, plus guitarist Steve Hackett. Nursery Cryme saw the band take a more aggressive direction of some songs, with substantially improved drumming. The opening piece, 'The Musical Box' combined the band's trademark mix of twelve-string guitars with harsh electric guitars and keyboards. The song, a macabre fairy story set in Victorian Britain, became the inspiration for the album cover, and went on to be a live favorite. This album played a pivotal role in establishing the band's progressive rock sound and laid the foundation for their future success. Although Peter Gabriel remained the band's primary vocalist, Collins' distinctive voice began to shine through on tracks like 'For Absent Friends' and 'Harlequin.' Collins' vocals added a new dimension to the band's sound, blending seamlessly with Gabriel's, and hinting at the vocal prowess that would later define his solo career. His emotive and versatile singing style contributed to the album's overall charm. Nursery Cryme is regarded as a crucial stepping stone in Genesis' discography, and with time, became recognized as a progressive rock classic. The album received acclaim for it's adventurous and intricate compositions, combining elements of folk, rock, and classical music. Genesis' signature storytelling lyrics, often filled with surreal and whimsical imagery, captivated listeners and added depth to the music. Critics praised the band's musicianship, with particular attention to the intricate guitar work of Steve Hackett and the melodic basslines of Mike Rutherford. All the hallmarks of a top-notch Analogue Productions reissue are here for you to savor: Mastered directly from the original master tape by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and cut at 45 RPM.
