Extra Tracks 1970 to 1975

“Happy the Man” – 3:10
“Twilight Alehouse” – 7:48
“Going Out to Get You” – 4:55
“Shepherd – 4:04
“Pacidy” – 5:44
“Let Us Now Make Love” – 6:16

(The next four tracks came from the much talked about Jackson tape)

“Provocation” – 4:10
“Frustration” – 3:42
“Manipulation” – 3:49
“Resignation” – 3:01


Tracks 3-6 are listed in the wrong order inside the booklets final page, leading to problems with online CD databases (such as iTunes) also giving the songs the incorrect titles.

“Going Out to Get You” is a demo, recorded August 1969.

“Provocation”, “Frustration”, “Manipulation” and “Resignation” was recorded 9 January 1970, for a BBC documentary about painter Michael Jackson which never aired.[11]

“Happy the Man” was released as a single after Nursery Cryme. Unlike the previous version, on Genesis Archive 1967-75, on which the song fades in, the beginning has been restored.

“Twilight Alehouse” constituted the B-side of the “I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)” single, released in August 1973.

“Shepherd”, “Pacidy” and “Let Us Now Make Love” was recorded for the BBC “Nightride” program, 22 February 1970.
Tracks 1 to 6 appeared in the box set Genesis Archive 1967–75.

Tracks 7 to 10 have never been previously released, and are of particular note because they contain fragments of inchoate musical themes that would later turn up in several officially released Genesis songs. The first half of “Provocation” would be used two years later as the fanfare/verse of “The Fountain of Salmacis”, while its second half was soon appropriated for the instrumental breakdown of Trespass’s “Looking For Someone”. “Frustration” is largely based around a Tony Banks piano theme that would only reappear five years down the road as “Anyway” on The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, though it also incorporates a fragment of the unreleased early song “Hair on the Arms and Legs,” otherwise only available as a demo on the Genesis Archive 1967–75 boxed set.

“Manipulation” is primarily composed of several instrumental fragments that would later be assembled into “The Musical Box” for Nursery Cryme. “Resignation” is the only track that lacks an obvious connection to any later Genesis song, though its chord changes are at times reminiscent of the already-released “In Hiding” (from From Genesis to Revelation), the instrumental section of “Stagnation” (from Trespass), and “The Musical Box.”
