Music today has been two albums, GenesisTrespass (1970) and of course Kevin AyersBananamour (1973). I can’t imagine them being albums that are mentioned often. Kevin Ayers did little in the later years despite being in Soft Machine and being prolific in the seventies. Bananamour features the track Decadence that the ex-band covered on the Box Of Birds album. Trespass is an overlooked Genesis album that I absolutely love. It was their second album and the first of their progressive classics. It’s before both Steve Hackett and Phil Collins joined with Anthony Phillips on guitar and the late John Mayhew on drums. The album features original members (bar one), that included Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks, Mayhew only played on this one album, the drummer on the first album was John Silver (mostly), Chris Stewart was the drummer on the first two singles. Now you know. Great if you like this kind of thing.
