More Genesis, please?

Pre-Then There Were Three Genesis will always hold a special place in me heart (sob). Enough sentimentality...

While experiencing technical difficulties with the stereo in my truck for the last couple of weeks, "Looking For Someone", "The Knife", and "Harold The Barrel" had been on a constant loop in the old noggin during the commute to work and back (along with "Daydream Believer", which, for some reason, I made up dirty lyrics for... ).

The first two songs listed above are from Genesis' second album Trespass (1970), which would feature John Mayhew on drums (his only recording with the band) and original guitarist (and, at the time, the principle songwriter) Anthony Philips, who would depart the group shortly after the album's completion. "Harold The Barrel" derives from Hackett's and Collins' debut with the band and followup to Trespass, 1971's Nursery Cryme.
