GENESIS: SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND- THE CLASSIC ALBUM
Selling England by the Pound is the fifth studio album by Genesis , released in October 1973 on Charisma Records . It reached No. 3 in the UK and No. 70 in the U.S. A single from the album, " I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe) ", was released in February 1974 and became the band's first top 30 hit in the UK.
Selling England is a particular favourite for the Coda team and comes highly recommended. If you need more evidence try this wonderful promotional clip of Genesis performing I know What I like from 1973.
The album was recorded in August 1973 following the tour supporting the previous album, Foxtrot (1972). The group set aside a short period of time to write new material, which covered a number of themes, including the loss of English folk culture and an increased American influence, which was reflected in the title. Following the album's release, the group set out on tour, where they drew an enthusiastic reception from fans.
Critics and the band have given mixed opinions of the album, though guitarist Steve Hackett has said it is his favourite Genesis record. The album has continued to sell and has reached Gold certification by the British Phonographic Industry and the Recording Industry Association of America . It was remastered for CD in 1994 and 2007. Several of the album tracks became fan favourites and featured as a regular part of the band's live setlist into the 1980s.
