Banks' Birthday
Posted:Thursday, 03/28/2013 at 02:03am by Greg Easterling
We hit the actual midpoint of our week yesterday with a birthday salute to Tony Banks, the longtime Genesis keyboardist.

We celebrated with a side from a prime early Genesis album, Selling England By The Pound, released in late fall of 1973. Peter Gabriel was still the lead singer at this point with Steve Hackett on lead guitar. Phil Collins sings one song, a foreshadowing perhaps of the future when he would replace Gabriel.

We listened to Side 1 including "I Know What I Like In Your Wardrobe" and Banks' magnificient piano parts on "Firth of Fifth".
