A Trick of the Tail is the seventh studio album by English progressive rock band Genesis. It was released in February 1976 on Charisma Records and was the first album to feature drummer Phil Collins as lead vocalist following the departure of Peter Gabriel. It was a critical and commercial success in the UK and . reaching No. 3 and No. 31 respectively.

Also, Genesis were moving away from the barbed pop of the first LP and returning to elastic numbers that showcased their instrumental prowess, and they sounded more forceful and unified as a band than they had since Foxtrot. Not that this album is quite as memorable as Foxtrot or Selling England, largely because its songs aren't as immediate or memorable: apart from "Dance on a Volcano," this is about the sound of the band playing, not individual songs, and it succeeds on that level quite wildly - to the extent that it proved to longtime fans that Genesis could.

Listen to A Trick Of The Tail right now. Released on 2 February 1976, it was a record that saw Messrs Collins, Banks, Hackett and Rutherford following their best instincts. It’s as strong as it ever was, Banks told Melody Maker as A Trick Of The Tail emerged, following that with a bold statement. If it isn’t, we won’t play again. If it’s not as good, there’s no point in playing. The closing ‘Los Endos’ was the only other track ascribed to all four members, but Banks emerged as the most productive individual: two of the others were by the keyboard player with Rutherford, one with Collins, another with Hackett, and Banks wrote two on his own.

Album: A Trick Of The Tail (1976). Get the Sheet Music License This Song. songfacts ®. Artistfacts ®. Lyrics. This was the first song Genesis released after Peter Gabriel left. It was not, however, the first Genesis song on which Phil Collins sang lead. English writer Sir William Golding (1911 – 1993) is best known for his debut published novel Lord of the Flies about a group of school boys stranded on a tropical island, who revert back to savagery. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983. Other songs inspired by Golding's works include: "Shadows And Tall Trees" by U2 ("Shadows And Tall Trees" is the name of the seventh chapter of Lord of the Flies)

The album is mainly a product of instruments, guided rather than narrated by vocals. The basic structure of the songs is simpler, but the music no less challenging. When that happens, A Trick of the Tail reveals itself to be truly a quality Genesis album. Genesis Mark IV: Phil Collins – Vocals, Drums Steve Hackett – Guitar Tony Banks – Keyboards, Guitar, Vocals Mike Rutherford – Bass, Guitar.
