The poppy 80's hits 'These Dreams' &  'What About Love' are very good songs even though I consider much of that decade 'the dark ages' for rock music.

I've been trying to limit my classic rock LP buying over the last few years, BUT I've recently started buying 45 singles of classic rock hits I loved as a kid. A good copy of Heart's "Dreamboat Annie" LP is usually pretty pricey, but I've grabbed 45s of "Magic Man," "Crazy on You," "Kick it Out," and "Barracuda." AWESOME! You can't go far from the turntable with these, but at less than $2 each they are a lot of fun.

I've started playing early Genesis albums.
I've ignored them for far too long, and it's refreshing to encounter old friends not seen or heard of for many a long year.

I'd forgotten just how good these albums are, and now they're on the play a lot more regularly list.

So far ....





and now ....

I agree Chris. I'm not that familiar with Trespass, but Nursery Cryme is currently getting a lot more plays than it ever has. I like all their output up to and including Selling England.

I must give these a spin again soon - still have the LPs I bought 35 odd years ago.
Trespass was a big favourite.
Genesis seemed to grow in confidence on Foxtrot's Supper's Ready.

Someday they won't let you, now you must agree
The times they are a-telling, and the changing isn't free
You've read it in the tea leaves, and the tracks are on tv
Beware the savage jaw
Of 1984

They'll split your pretty cranium, and fill it full of air
And tell that you're eighty, but brother, you won't care
You'll be shooting up on anything, tomorrow's never there
Beware the savage jaw
Of 1984

Come see, come see, remember me?
We played out an all-night movie role
You said it would last, but I guess we enrolled
In 1984 (who could ask for more?)
1984 (who could ask for more?)
(More)

I'm looking for a vehicle, I'm looking for a ride
I'm looking for a party, I'm looking for a side
I'm looking for the treason that I knew in '65
Beware the savage jaw
Of 1984

Possibly fearing it would go straight over the heads of some (latter) Genesis fans, Feeding the Fire was left off Invisible Touch, but released as B side on the Land of Confusion single. Only managed to find two "tubes" and both are poor sound, this being the best of the two...



I think it fitting for our "get" society.
