      Although it doesn't say so anywhere on the package, the concept of this album is that of a compilation of non-hit singles on the Charisma label - it makes for a decent compilation. Having said that, the Rare Bird track is actually here in its very different LP incarnation...

          The version of 'Happy The Man' by Genesis on this album is an oddity.
          It's not the same as the Charisma single because this version and the Archive box-set one both fade in, whereas the original single doesn't.
          In addition, the single and Archive have the "ah,ahhhh" vocals at 10 seconds but this one doesn't.
          Finally, this version lacks the notable flute by Gabriel which is present on the single but not on the 'Archive' version.

          So where does this version come from?
          Curiouser and curiouser…

          Edit: Just checked the Genesis Discography pdf (Copyright © 1998 Scott McMahan) and the entry there says that this is simply a re-mixed version.

            As samplers go, this is a fine album for the prog/folk-prog fan, the only clunkers on it being Jo'Burg Hawk and the Monty Python song although the latter is mildly amusing. I have to admit that I bought it for the Genesis non-album track 'Happy The Man' - where else are you going to get this track on vinyl? The price of the singles with it on are extorionate, so this is the only way now (I think).

            Hell, the rest of the album is filled with great music, especially from The Nice, Audience, Lindisfarne and Rare Bird. We are even treated to the introductory music for Alan "Fluff" Freeman's 1970s/80s Saturday afternoon radio rock programme - that's 'Theme One' from Van Der Graaf Generator for those of you who are/were unaware.

            Great album - see if you can pick one up cheap and then chill out with some '70s rock greats!
