I bought pretty much all the early Genesis LPs when they first came out (my girlfriend at the time turned me on to the band), but as much as I loved the records they didn't really sound very good until Trick of the Tail. I still remember the first time I put Trick of the Tail on. No Peter Gabriel but wow! A Genesis record that didn't sound utterly compressed and bandwidth limited! It didn't hurt that even without Peter Gabriel they still made a case for out-and-out classically influenced rock. And oh yeah, just to show you dudes how cool I am I saw ELP at the Santa Monica Civic...
Have you not given Qobuz's updated 'Selling England by the Pound' a minute or two...? Perhaps I'm alone, but I find it very engaging and a much appreciated offering.
On a similar but different note, just now wading into some solid tube non-hybrid pre & amp (Atma-Sphere) pieces. Seconds Out's 'Supper's Ready' has always been an al time favorite for me. It's one of those few tunes for me that once cued up, it will be played full thru (all +24 mins), each and every time. Without exaggeration, I've no doubt listened to it full thru well over one-hundred times. Proverbial gift that just keeps giving. Just never before realized (before A-S, anyway) just what an outstanding recording this piece really is. An opening up of the soundstage (guessing the tubes) that makes it even more special to me. Sorry, was listening to it as I stated this response and felt compelled to pass along. 'A flower...?'
