Recorded at Regent Sound Studios, London, England between 1968 and 1969. Includes liner notes by Michael Heatley.
The first full-length release from Genesis, FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION, was recorded while the band were still teenagers in prep school. Produced by pop legend Jonathan King, FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION is, by and large, a lushly orchestrated recording--a feature that band has subsequently been very critical of. Most fans agree that this release bears little resemblance to what the band would evolve into during their next several Peter Gabriel-led releases, TRESPASS, NURSERY CRYME, and FOXTROT.
Still, there are a number of tracks here that will interest fans of Genesis's earlier years, most particularly "The Serpent" and the single, "Silent Sun." It's clear that FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION captures the band in a still-developing stage. But even then, it's quite obvious that the core members--Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford--were on to something special from the very first time they set foot in a recording studio.
