Dee Palmer - We Know What We Like - The Music of Genesis

There have been numerous attempts at orchestrating the songs of rock groups - Queen and Yes, for instance, have had this done. Dee Palmer, is an accomplished arranger and conductor in many genres of music, possibly best known as a one time member of Jethro Tull. For her programme she has chosen Genesis songs from the mid-seventies to the early eighties, their progressive period, before they changed to a more pop-oriented band.
The music is beautifully played yet doesn't lack dramatic power when necessary. Highlights are the soft ballad "Entangled" and a lovely version of the early acoustic guitar piece "Horizons" delectably played by original guitarist Steve Hackett, who guests on the album throughout. Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull fame plays the flute solo on "I know what I like" in a very individual style. The use of the Charterhouse School Choir for the finale of "Supper's Ready" is thoughtful and nostalgic, as it was in the hallowed halls of Charterhouse that Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford first met and laid the seeds of Genesis. The recording is outstandingly clear and this music benefits from being heard on a good hi-fi system. This is a special record for committed Genesis fans who won't be disappointed.
