Genesis was an English progressive rock band formed 1967 at Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey. The original line-up was Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Anthony Phillips and Chris Stewart. Between 1970-75 Genesis recorded five prog rock masterpieces but then changed direction when Gabriel left in 1975 to go solo, after recording the classic Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Drummer Phil Collins took over singing and songwriting duties and took them in a more AOR direction, however the first two post-Gabriel albums: A Trick of the Tail and Wind & Wuthering, are excellent. Outstanding early-period albums include Trespass, Nursery Crime, Foxtrot, Live, Selling England by the Pound and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.
