Genesis- Abacab- Mike Rutherford, Phil Collins

The demarcation line of the second Genesis band era was finally clearly in focus with the September 1981 release of Abacab . The veteran English band’s eleventh  studio album, nevertheless it was the first Genesis album to breach the American Top Ten album sales on Billboard, and surprisingly the first Genesis million seller. Yet after the exits of storied lead singer/performance artist Peter Gabriel and lead guitarist Steve Hackett, it is no minor miracle that my guests Mike Rutherford, Phil Collins, and Tony Banks could make it to the Progressive Rock promised land.
