A terrifying thing happened in my search for Nursery Cryme I found this
Of course I bought it but the cover is amazingly awful. It is almost awe inspiring in it’s lack of any artistic merit.
Then to compound things it is so confusing.
Side 1 of Nursery Cryme followed by Side 1 of Foxtrot on Side 2 then Side 3 is the second side of Nursery Cryme followed by the final side of Foxtrot on Side 4.
Obviously so you can play it on a stacker or whatever they were called but so confusing when you are not expecting it.
It’s a Buddha record release and is described as a Best Of Genesis album so there must have been some really confused people in 1976 when it was released. It is however a fine stop gap as I search out a decent copy of Nursery Cryme although I have to hide it away in case a visitor sees it

You realise you could be drummed out of the ‘Supper’s Ready’ club simply for posting this image, don’t you?
You know you want one, I am shocked that a band with such exquisite artwork would allow this to happen. It needed to be posted.
Careful I think owning this makes you an accessory to bad art.
I am finding myself becoming quite attached to this now.
