Genesis’ tour de force 1977 live album Seconds Out is revisited, this time with the Tabletop giving the masterpiece its deserved track-by-track breakdown. Plus, which version of Supper’s Ready do fans prefer: Peter’s Foxtrot or Phil’s Seconds Out? The results of the listener poll are revealed!
Drummer Jerry Marotta joins the Tabletop for a lively discussion about everything from his work with Peter Gabriel, to how the dreaded “Disco Duck” stood in his way of #1! Plus, find out how you can catch him performing classic Gabriel (and Genesis!) tunes on the latest Security Project tour.
And then there were two: Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks faced some uncertain weather when they set out to prove there was Genesis after Phil Collins with 1997’s “Calling All Stations.” Did the addition of Ray Wilson on vocals satisfy fans, or did the whole endeavor leave them feeling … shipwrecked? The members of the tabletop discuss!
At the end of the day, sit back, pour yourself a cup of moonshine, and enjoy the Tabletop’s take on Mike Rutherford’s first solo outing, 1980’s “Smallcreep’s Day.”
From the “how much more black could it be?” cover of From Genesis to Revelation to the ectoplasmic font of Calling All Stations, the members of the Tabletop put their spin on the album artwork of Genesis. Plus, we’re counting down the Top 10 Genesis Album Covers as chosen by you, the listeners! [Note: the giveaway mentioned in the episode has now ended]
In this special holiday episode, guitarist/songwriter extraordinaire Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Joe Satriani, Dethklok, and many more) discusses his passion for the music of Genesis.
