Certified multi-platinum-selling in several countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, Genesis’ album Abacab, released in 1981, marked the band’s move from their progressive music roots to more accessible and pop-oriented songs.

Genesis released four singles from the album, the most successful being “Abacab” and “No Reply at All,” together with “Man on the Corner.” Extensive radio play helped boost the album’s commercial success.

The album was engineered by Hugh Padgham, known for his work with other successful artists like Phil Collins and The Police. His production techniques, including the gated reverb drum sound, contributed to the album’s modern and radio-friendly sound.

In November 1980 the band bought Fisher Lane Farm, a farmhouse with an adjoining cowshed near Chiddingfold, Surrey, as their new private rehearsal and recording facility. In the process of remodelling the building into a studio, the trio reconvened in the farm house to write and rehearse new material, which initially took place in the living room, and they started recording Abacab in March 1981 once the studio was operational. It was the first Genesis album recorded in England since A Trick of the Tail (1976).

This is the definitive deluxe 45 RPM 2LP Analogue Productions (Atlantic Series) reissue of the classic Abacab. A sonic gift for all true Genesis fans!
