      I take it you don't find the self-titled album worth
      owning on CD. Not that I blame you, but if you're
      going to own the rest of those latter-day Genesis
      albums, you might as well complete the collection.

      Wow, has it really been 10 years since "Calling All
      Stations" came out? Seems hard to believe. I still
      remember going into a used CD store about a week after
      that album came out and finding a copy for $4. Not a
      good sign for the band.

      Man, I can't stand that song. Like nails on a chalkboard.
      I'm just sayin'.

      If you like "Shaming", you should definitely try to find a
      copy of "Thud". Despite the fact that I like it a lot, I
      think it would be right up your alley. :-)

        Actually, I find the omission of Trespass (1970) and Lamb Lies Down..
        (1974?) to be more surprising. I saw that these were being listed
        chronologically, but I thought I'd wait until this last installment
        before commenting. Both are outstanding releases (although I admit -
        Trespass does sound a bit dated - but hey - it is 37 years old).

        Yep, copies of Thud are out there along with some live bootlegs...
        just incredibly hard to find. Giraffe is another band that Kevin
        Gilbert was involved with. Very different from "Shaming", "Thud",
        and "Toy Matinee" - reminds me of Frankie Goes To Hollywood (lots of
        techno ear candy). "Imagemaker" was on a Giraffe release called "The
        Power of Suggestion".

        Thanks for taking time to post your music library Steve. I enjoy the
        commentary, and it rattles the ol' memory banks a bit.

        I don t have the yellow album on CD, just on vinyl which is why I did not review it. I have also heard good things about the Shaw Blades project. Steve Sly

          For me it was the previous album with the hideous "Illegal Alien."
          The cheesy video didn't help. The song is a pale semblance of their
          social commentary songs that came before.

          Thanks (not!) for making me remember that...

          In other news, my copy of Shaw-Blades "Influences" arrived yesterday
          and I'm really liking it. The songs sound much like the originals,
          only more electrified. I also finally got around to picking up
          "Major Impacts" by Steve Morse and am liking it a lot also.

            I do own in on vinyl, but for some reason have never replaced it on CD.  I'm not really sure why.  I will probably pick it up used one of these days.

            "Keep Your Hands To Yourself" did get way overplayed.  I still like it ok, but there is a lot of their other stuff that I like better.

            I have always wanted to explore more of Gilbert's stuff........just haven't for some reason.  I will have to give "Thud" a try.

            I still don't know why it is doing it.  It does not come through that way to me when I open it from the yahoogroup, but obviously it is still coming through to everyone else with the quotes screwed up.  I'll see if I can try something different.

              Yea, it is kind of weird that I do not own either of these.  I have always liked "The Lamb", but for some reason have never bought it.  I have always liked "The Knife" off of "Trespass", but have never really had a great desire to get the album.
