2008 reissue of the album, From Genesis to Revelation, which was the first album by Genesis, released in March 1969 on Decca Records in England (London Records in North America). It was produced by Jonathan King, the man who discovered them back in 1967 while the members of Genesis were pupils at Charterhouse School, King's alma mater as well. Gabriel sounds great. The songs are interesting and soothing. I take off the clothes that I wear on my face", is just one of the amazing lyrics from this album. This is a "DEEP" album. Only someone of high intelligence could write songs like this. This is high intelligence rock. The songs all have their own unique beauty.
This debut Genesis album, which has appeared under license to various labels in addition to Decca and London in different configurations, is largely of historical interest. The group was still in its formative stages, the members barely past their 18th birthdays and still working out what they wanted to sound like. Mostly they sound like the Bee Gees trying to be the Moody Blues (picture something similar to the sound of the former group's Odessa album).
