Entangled – Genesis (1976) 2007 SACD Remastered FLAC HD 1080p

“Entangled” was released on Genesis’ seventh studio album, A Trick Of The Tail, in February 1978.

A Trick Of The Tail was the first album to feature drummer Phil Collins as lead vocalist, following Peter Gabriel’s departure.

The album was recorded at Relight Studios and mixed at Trident Studios in October/November 1975. It also marked the first album that the band would co-produce with David Hentschel. They would work with Hentschel for the n

Back in the day when these 3 records were current, it was sacrilege in some circles to state a preference for the post-Gabriel Genesis (still is in some of those circles!), however I’m proud to say that I’ve always been among those rabid fans of this mid-period sting of albums starting with early 1976’s A Trick Of The Tail, late 1976’s Wind And Wuthering, and 1978’s …And Then There Were Three. I believe they produced some of the most beautiful progressive music by any band ever during this period….of course I still listen to both early period and later period work by the band, but none of it comes close to the stuff they did in the mid to late 70’s. I think I’ve mentioned it before on some of my Genesis videos but it bears repeating… ***If you are as much a fan of this music as I am, and if you want to experience something mindblowingly beautiful….this music enveloping you in sound like you’ve never experienced it before ….buy a DVDA – SACD player and listen to it in 5.1…..one word; OMG! 😉

A Trick of the Tail reached No.3 in the UK, remaining on the charts for 39 weeks, and No.31 in the US. Additionally, the album was certified Gold in the US by the RIAA in March 1990. Also according to Tony Banks in the essay that comes with Platinum Collection, the album doubled the band’s previous albums sales. This success was also financially crucial for Genesis who were $400,000 in debt by the time Peter Gabriel left.

This is the seventh video I’ve made for a Genesis song (and the second for a track from A Trick of the Tail (link to “Ripples” and other Genesis videos below). I was mostly finished with “Mad Man Moon” (coming soon) and during editing I ended up with some effects that needed to go, and which I thought I’d use for a foundation for “Entangled” (mainly the clip of the kayak guy which I thought was a nice match to the rhythm and feel of the song). The image of the row houses is something I originally worked on for BOC’s “Morning Final” and then used heavily in The Waterboys’ “Old England”….THEN held up on finishing those videos when I realized the image would work PERFECTLY with that little ditty from Wind and Wuthering (can you guess which one? LOL!)…..now after holding on to the image for years to make the impact I hoped for….I end up using it in “Entangled”? LOL! Hint: you will see it featured again! 😉

Hope you enjoy the effort!

As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who’s art made this new art possible…THANK YOU!!!!!

[Lyrics]
When you’re asleep they may show you
Aerial views of the ground
Freudian slumber empty of sound

Over the rooftops and houses
Lost as it tries to be seen
Fields of incentive covered with green

Mesmerized children are playing
Meant to be seen but not heard
Stop me from dreaming, don’t be absurd, absurd

Well, if we can help you we will
You’re looking tired and ill
As I count backwards
Your eyes become heavier still

Sleep, won’t you allow yourself fall?
Nothing can hurt you at all
With your consent
We can experiment further still

Madrigal music is playing
Voices can faintly be heard
Please leave this patient undisturbed

Sentenced to drift far away now
Nothing is quite what it seems
Sometimes entangled in your own dreams, in your dreams

Well, if we can help you we will
Soon as you’re tired and ill
With your consent
We can experiment further still

Well, thanks to our kindness and skill
You’ll have no trouble until
You catch your breath
And the nurse will present you the bill
