TONY BANKS - From The Undertow
Album: A Curious Feeling [album review]
Working title: unknown
Credits: Tony Banks
Played Live: never
Cover versions: none
Notes: When you read the title you think of a similarly titled piece on ...And Then There Were Three... When you close your eyes and listen you hear Genesis. When you check the booklet you realize it's Tony Banks solo. The similarity to Genesis songs and the title connection have a reason: Tony has always left his mark on Genesis. Our current Track Of The Week was planned as the introduction to the Genesis song Undertow. It eventually became the opening track of Tony's first solo album.
An instrumental that has a bit of Genesis and a lot of Tony Banks and no way to hide its lineage.
