(Genesis' Peter Gabriel during his Flower Period)

Taking a break from the unfamiliar tonight and heading into some familiar territory with one of the more celebrated proponents of the Prog-Rock movement of the 1970s; Genesis. The early 70's would come to be known as the Classic Genesis lineup with Peter Gabriel fronting the band as well as Steve Hackett on guitar, in addition to Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks and Phil Collins. They turned out several milestone albums during that period including this one, Selling England By The Pound from which tonight's track Firth of Fifth comes.

A little something to jog your memory tonight. Maybe send it racing.
