Offered for sale is a limited edition yellow vinyl Japanese pressing of Genesis by Genesis, including the original obi.
Note: While the album title on the cover and label is Genesis, this album is a reissue of the band’s first LP, From Genesis to Revelation.
About this copy: This copy of Genesis is a 1978 pressing on the London label of an album that was originally released in the UK in 1969, but which wasn’t issued in Japan until 1976.
This pressing is noteworthy for the terrific photo of Peter Gabriel in costume, and for the fact that it’s a yellow vinyl pressing, as the yellow vinyl copies were limited to 1000 units.
The cover is VG++ and very close to M-, with slight edge and corner wear. The obi is VG++ with a couple of minor wrinkles, but no tears.
The lyric insert is M-.
The yellow vinyl disc is M- and looks like it may have been played once. Clean disc!
A beautiful copy of a very rare Genesis LP and only the second copy we’ve ever had for sale.
Background: Released in 1969, From Genesis to Revelation was the first album by Genesis.
The album was originally released only in the UK and it did not chart. It was released in 1974 in the U.S. and in 1976 in Japan, after the band had become famous.
This debut Genesis album, which has appeared under license to various labels in addition to Decca and London in different configurations, is largely of historical interest. The group was still in its formative stages, the members barely past their 18th birthdays and still working out what they wanted to sound like. Mostly they sound like the Bee Gees trying to be the Moody Blues (picture something similar to the sound of the former group’s Odessa album)….A pleasant enough piece of pop-psychedelia/art rock, but not a critically important release, except to the truly dedicated.
