Speaks his mind on music & movies!
The first song CB ever heard by Genesis was “The Battle Of Epping Forest”. A friend, Tim, turned him onto it. It was a listening experience on a lot of levels. Great music, lyrics, vocals, humor. It took Babyhead’s mind. It was similar to a Monty Python bit except musical. The lyrics from the song are still in his head today. Lots of great images conjured up in this song. It was a trip.
Babyhead was lucky he the found the album. Like most of the music he was listening to, he wasn’t going to find it on the radio. The album was definitely a new direction in his tastes.
The whole album, like the first cut he heard, is a listening experience. The band working out, jamming out and exploring their influences. Bottom line, it sounded good and fresh to CB. Not traditional rock, blues, folk etc. These guys were making music their way. The more he listened to it the more he liked it.
One of the cuts ‘I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe) ‘ has an all- time favorite lyric “Me, I’m just a lawnmower – you can tell me by the way I walk” then Gabriel takes you out with his flute. Awesome.
This was a different style of music. It sent the imagination into orbit. Surrounded his ears with some real good playing and cool sounds. Peter Gabriel’s lyrics and voice were a big reason he liked it. The playing on it was first rate.
CB loved this album and this band. They were doing it their way. No question. Some really great music on this album. He was off to find more music by this band.
‘Selling England By The Pound’ was a great discovery. Thanks Tim. Hey, what kind of tobacco was that we smoked?
