***** This single was released in spring 1982 and contains 2 songs which didn't reach the Album "Abacab" in 1981... The song paperlate has a fascinating origin. In 1973 Peter Gabriel sang in the song "Dancing with the moonlight knight" (from the album : "Selling England by the pound") about a newspaper seller and someone in the crowd cries "Paper late"... Phil sang during a session in studio around 1980, repeatedly for the engineer an "echo tuning".. Paper late..... and it became an natural jam and in 1981 it became a song which reached in Mai 1982 at place # 40 in the Dutch chart... With the song "The Horns section of Earth, Wind & Fire" joined the rock sound of Genesis... beautiful mix!
***** Fröhliche, beschwingte Nummer, die zwar kein Highlight im Gesamtwerk der Gruppe darstellt, allerdings bei weitem besser ist, als das, was Anno 1982 so in den Hitparaden stand. Last edited: 06/09/2010 18:44
