A Tribute To Genesis

Supper's Ready The story of the band, Genesis, has taken almost three decades to unfold. From the earliest, struggling days in England to their commercial breakthrough mid-period (post- Peter Gabriel) to their pop and dance hits of their later years, Genesis have always created a stir. Yet, it is the first half of this band's career that most of their fans care about. Genesis created something new stylistically and musically. It wasn't until the late1970's that most of the world would pay attention. Genesis music from that period is revered because of its complexity and musicality. It sounded unusual and intricate compared to other music of that time but it had such great melodies and compelling rhythms that even the most left-field songs became favorites of the musically aware.

1995 marks 20 years since Peter Gabriel left the band. Today, we have a new generation of musicians who have cut their musical teeth on early Genesis. Magna Carta felt that bringing together the older music and the newer musicians would make a great package for fans of this important band. Many of the artists included on "Supper's Ready..." are cult artists with devoted followings. These are all artists who currently travel the same musical terrain that Genesis explored so long ago. The fan base for Genesis is unique in composition. The fans know that there is no possibility that their beloved band will re-form to create the music that is remembered so fondly. Yet, a collection of music such as "Supper's Ready..." can give the fans "new" music of another type to digest...reinterpretations by credible artists. Arguments can go on for years about Peter versus Phil, etc., etc.. The bottom line is that the songs are timeless and deserve to be heard again. So, wash your hands and faces..."Supper's Ready".
