xx Badly packaged Genesis albums
« Thread started on: Sep 3rd, 2015, 06:59am »

I believe we've previously discussed the old U.S. MCA LP of TRESPASS, with all the times on side 1 given as "7:00" (hey, what's a little rounding between friends?).

Last night I was looking at my old Virgin CD of FOXTROT. Besides having only fragments of the cover art in evidence, it boasts such gems as "Horizon's" and "Gable Ratchet." And while the song listing was correct on the back, the lyrics inside showed the songs (clearly numbered from 1 to 6) with Get 'Em Out By Friday first and Horizons last!

Are there any other beauties like these out there?

Copies of Calling All Stations claim that the length of The Dividing Line is 8:59, confusing its length with that of One Man's Fool. The Dividing Line's actual length is 7:45.

My copy doesn't even give lyrics to Horizons! sad Sorry...I'll get my coat lipsrsealed

No, I can't really complain too much, at least for Genesis albums. Ant's solo albums contain a number of spelling errors at times, such as on Field Day: 'Terra del Fuego' for Tierra del Fuego, 'Charanga' for Charango, 'Yari Guitar' for Yairi Guitar etc. Though all of those can be slips it's a little annoying if there's too many slips at once.

A very odd thing is something I saw at my brother's vinyl copies of Wind and Wuthering and The Lamb: they contain translations of the song lyrics resp. the Lamb story into German; though a nice idea the translation is so poor it is basically useless. Granted, it's not easy to translate the Lamb story or something like Eleventh Earl of Mar in the first place but trust me, even as a teen when I still sucked at English I got more out of the original lyrics than of this mess of a translation.

Let's not forget "Halycon Days" from PATHWAYS & PROMENADES (should be "Halcyon").

Back to my LP copy of TRESPASS with all the "7:00"s: I should mention that the sleeve was made of thin cardboard covered with a layer of thin paper on which the design was printed... and, near one edge, there was about a quarter inch all the way across where there was only the thin paper because the cardboard didn't make it all the way 'round...

I just noticed this on my copy of A TRICK OF THE TAIL - the Definitive Edition Remaster, no less:

The writing credits for Robbery, Ripples & the title track are shuffled. Robbery is credited to Banks, Ripples to Banks/Collins, and the title track to Rutherford/Banks.

At least the publishing credits later in the booklet (which basically just restate the writing credits) get it right.

The worst one for me is the UK Definitive Edition Remaster of Genesis Live, on the back inlay it lists the band as:

Peter Gabriel
Anthony Philips
Anthony Banks
Michael Rutherford
John Mayhew

Oh, and the 2008 UK SACD/DVD release of Nursery Cryme having Nursery Crime printed on both the SACD and DVD.

My dad's vinyl copy of Seconds Out has the writing credits messed up in a weird way:


Squonk (Banks/Rutherford)
The Carpet Crawl (Banks/Collins/Rutherford)
Robbery, Assault and Battery (Banks/Collins)
Afterglow (Banks)

Firth of Fifth (Banks/Collins/Rutherford)
I Know What I Like (Banks/Collins/Rutherford)
The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (Banks/Collins/Rutherford)
The Musical Box (Banks/Collins/Rutherford)

Supper's Ready (Banks/Collins/Rutherford)

The Cinema Show (Banks/Collins/Rutherford)
Dance On A Volcano (Banks/Hackett/Rutherford)
Los Endos (Banks/Collins/Hackett/Rutherford)


However, the labels on the records have the correct credits.

I once owned the Japanese miniatures before the boxes came out . Calling all stations being a double lp came with a replica sleeve with half the lyrics plus a single printed sheet with the other lyrics. The second sheet had a very severe printing mistake where the proof must have moved about without checking. Did anyone else notice this?

Oh...FFS...

The initial North American release had "Side 4" containing various B-Sides ("Paperlate", "Me & Virgil", "Evidence Of Autumn", "You Might Recall" & "Open Door"). It was a record company decision based upon potential sales.

Haha...yeah, I was definitely in a bit of an annoyed state of mind when I read that post, so I responded to it at face value. The funny part though is that after posting my comment I reread the initial post and realized that I may have misinterpreted, but thought...meh, the hell with it. grin
