(Tony Banks/Phil Collins/Mike Rutherford)
(Charisma GEN 1, 33rpm mono/stereo)( UK EP PS)
This is one of the tracks recorded on the 1982 Genesis 3x3 EP which reached No.10 in the UK.
Originally it had the working title "Jangly". Phil Collins explained it by saying
"We like to identify new
material with some work suggested by the sound or the feel of the music
we've been making. It's just a
stamp for our own personal reference purposes. In this case it represented as a cross between Django
Reinhardt and the jangly noise of our playing."
*"Paperlate", "You Might Recall" and
"Me and Virgil" are the tracks on the Genesis 3x3 EP which had been left off the Abacab album, as it was felt they
didn't fit. It reached No.10
in the UK. The sleeve of it was designed to
resemble The Beatles Twist and Shout
