I just can´t believe it.
Many years ago, when I still wasn´t a PG or a Genesis fan, I found an LP by a band called Genesis, and the title was "In the Beginning".
Since I had heard something about this band, I traded it for. oh, I don´t remember what. Thing is that, when I got home and played my LP, it wasn´t the "thing" I had heard about. It was a psychedelic sound, very late-sixties, that didn´t fulfill my expectations. Besides, there was a girl singing and that was, definitely, NOT the Genesis I was looking for.
Foolishly, I traded that LP again the very next week.
Still, there was a song on it that I did like very much so I started looking for it again, but spent many (too many) years triying to retrieve it back, with no success at all.
Years later, I learnt that, at a certain point in time, there were actually two bands known by the name of Genesis and that both had released a first LP called In the Beginning (the "From Genesis to Revelation" thing is something I learnt later).
One of them was the one we all know. The other was a band born in San Francisco and disappeared shortly after.
For those who might be interested, here´s a link to get this "other" Genesis CD, which has finally been released by fallout records:
On E Bay, the description is as follows: "little known US band Genesis with their only album, superb psych/rock similar to Airplane etc."
As a matter of fact, if I´m not mistaken, one of its musicians eventually quit the band to join Steppenwolf.
Anyway. . . In case someone finds it interesting or wants to have a copy, as part of the odd things around "our" band.
Oh! and something else. . .
If my memory serves well, it has a song called "Gloomy Sunday" that might have been also sung by Sarah McLaghlan.
So, if anyone is interested. . . "be sure to wear some flowers in your hair" :-]

Hey Pat, that's Bill Bruford of Yes, King Crimson and LIVE Genesis fame.
(and Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe)
He's one awesome drummer. (see Yes-fragile)
