Foxtrot is probably tied for my favorite prog rock album ever written. Supper's Ready alone boosts this album so much. Can Utility and the Coastliners is probably my go to for introducing people to prog rock.

Got this from my aunt when I took in her old Genesis cassette collection and this one is my favorite one of the bunch! Love the art on the cover and get em' out by Friday is such a rad song.

I have an original release with the matrix numbers stating : (A2-U Porky's Prime Cut & B1-U Pecko)!! Does that mean my B-Side is the original cut but my side 1 a 2nd Cut? Is that unusual?

Can someone tell me why does it say (CONTINUED) at the end of the SUPPER'S READY lyrics? Inquiring mind needs to know!

There is a version of this album with the textured sleeve (A-1U Porky & B-1U Pecko matrices) but no red text on the spine. The cover picture continues across the spine (as per the red text version) effectively forming a complete picture when opened out. This version appears to be rarer than that with the text on the spine and I am not sure whether this version is the true first press. B & C have confirmed that the first release did not include the red inner, perhaps it did not include the red text ?

I have a double A-sided copy of Foxtrot in a single sleeve. How do I deal with this rarity?
