Genesis – Mama (12″)


A bit of Prog Rock now from 1983, well, with plenty of keyboards! Everyone will remember the scary video to this and it is quite a dark song and I have to admit I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Genesis, in all their bombast glory.

Apparently the inspiration for Collins’s laugh came from rap music pioneer Grandmaster Flash’s song “The Message”.

Here with the Full , as intended version alongside the equally good “It’s Gonna Get Better (Long Version)” which improves on the album version. Love the bass synth on this.

  1. One of my fave Genesis tracks, I also have a certain soft spot for them too. Best LP’s for me are Trick Of The Tail, Abacab, and Genesis. Oh, and the track ‘Paperlate’ is superb….!
