Genesis - Trick Of The Tail
When I was about 16 or 17 I bought my first stereo unit. It had white speakers. Up to that point we'd only had a radiogram in our house, so this was the first time I'd heard stereo. I'd put my head between the two speakers on the floor and just listen to this record over and over again, I just couldn't believe it. It's an underrated record, but I think it's a fantastic album, it's got some really great songs on. Sonically, if you listen to it through really good speakers it sounds amazing. Now I've got bigger speakers I put it on really really loud. I've got a place in Maine, that's where the loud equipment is, and that's in the middle of the woods so I can play stuff as loud as I like.
