GENESIS ‘A LIVING STORY’

Genesis A Living Story

Source: “British Biscuit/D.I.R. Presents” taped at the Rainbow Theater in London – 2 January 1977 – Second show of the Wind And Wuthering Tour    Broadcast 20 March 1977            

Background information can be found here: http://radioguide.genesis-movement.org/index.html#x-02jan77

Side 1: Squonk (6:39) / All in a Mouse’s Night (6:35) / Eleventh Earl of Mar (7:33)
Side 2: One for the Vine (10:31) / I Know What I Like (in Your Wardrobe) (8:17)

Album track list incorrectly lists “All In A Mouse’s Night” as “Afterglow”

Available with Dragonfly and Ruthless Rhymes labels (probably blank ones as well). Insert in the usual color variations. A re-issue appeared in the early 1980’s with Raring Records labels:

Genesis A Living Story Raring

I found two researched comments regarding the different versions and I have some comments:

# 1: “…release is found with at least three different covers; first pressing used a red photo cover [must be the Raring one above and I disagree that this was the first pressing]; second pressing used a different cover photo and was printed on blue paper; third pressing used the same photo as the second pressing but was printed on yellow paper” [can we be sure that each new insert color also means this is a new pressing run? I don’t think we can make that assumption]

# 2: “This recording first surfaced on vinyl in the seventies under the title A Living Story: The 1977 Tour (Big Thumb PG 1300) with two separate covers. The first edition has a picture of the band standing on a street corner and the repressings have the better-known illustration of the old man telling a story to the children.” [collectorsmusic.com – Again, I disagree and this comment might have been based on quoting the first]
