Always had a soft spot for One-Way World. It seems like a successor of sorts to I Know What I Like.
Yup, the sold out! All the way back in 1968, they wrote a song called Silent Sun to get a record deal. Now if that isn't a sellout moment, I don't know what is!! 🤣🤣🤣
Although, being Nancy Nitpicky, I must point out this doesn't strictly work as Alehouse was from the Foxtrot sessions. But your track sequence would work nicely leaving aside the time-travel issue.
I was the opposite - NC was one I'd leave completely untampered.
True, but the song itself was older. Trespass outtake?
All in a Mouse’s Night is great. Take off Wot Gorilla? instead.
The sides of the LP would be more even and Phil needs to have something on the album too! 😅
AND, a six minute song would even the EP as well.
The reviewer seems to attribute Fountain of Salmacis to Gabriel where I always thought it was Rutherford. I think I had read that somewhere and also recall reading that he was particularly into mythology. He wrote the lyrics to Squonk, so that fits too. Anyone know for sure?
-- IIRC, in Chapter & Verse, Tony says he & Peter wrote the lyrics for Fountain.
He also credits the lyrics to Hogweed to Gabriel, which I think is correct, but at one time questioned it because it doesn't rhyme, which is more characteristic of Banks. Certainly the content seems Gabrielesque, particularly its poking fun at British royalty. I do think this is Gabriel, but was wondering if anyone knew for sure.
-- Again, "IIRC", Steve came up with the "Return Of The..." bit for the title, rest is Peter.
The only ones I'd dare to tamper with are Nursery Cryme, I'd inject Twilight Alehouse in there, and Wind & Wuthering, switch Inside And Out with All In A Mouse's Night.
The tracklists would be:
The Musical Box
Harold The Barrel
For Absent Friends
Return Of The Giant Hogweed
The Fountain Of Salmacis
WIND & WUTHERING
Eleventh Earl Of Mar
One For The Vine
Blood On The Rooftops
Your Own Special Way
Inside And Out
"Unquiet Slumbers For The Sleepers... In That Quiet Earth"
Spot The Pigeon would also work IMO a bit better as it would be entirely lighthearted songs.
I could basically list most of them, but my top three would be (at the moment, that is!)
Inside And Out (should've been on W&W)
The Day The Light Went Out
Do The Neurotic
Happy The Man was an a-side, so it's not included.
It's a series of CD singles from We Can't Dance era. No Son of Mine, I Can't Dance, Jesus He Knows Me and Hold on My Heart.
The last one came with a box you could compile all the others in. Apparently other editions of said singles were also released, hence the slight mistake in mine.
Hence the high prices. Also, the 76 - 82 box is the japanese version. The prices are based on the median at discogs.
And no, not sealed, but in near mint condition. Except for the Invisible Series which is "very good" condition.
In case someone's interested, I've got a few boxsets for sale:
The blue box 1976 - 1982 350€
The black box Live 1973 - 2007 250€
The Invisible Series 50€
- there is a slight goof with this one, as the guy who I bought it from had two Jesus He Knows Me singles instead of two Hold On My Hearts.
Phil Collins: Take a Look at Me Now 150€
- this is the one with all the double CDs
Located in Finland
P&P not included
I seem to recall an interview, where Behind The Lines had originally lyrics by Phil. But they were quite nasty, so apparently they were replaced with Mike's.
Also, isn't You Might Recall by Tony? He was credited for it in that old Genesis Discography
