It was ignored when it came out because it got tossed into "gospel" sections of record stores due to the band's name and apparently sold only *650* total copies. There was apparently an LA band named Genesis who already put out an album in 1967 as well and some confusion occured, apparently the band was going to be called "Genesis" in the UK and "Revelation" in the US?
As for the album itself, it's got some cute songs reminiscent of very early Moody Blues, but shorter and poppier, I liked "Fireside Song," "Where The Sour Turns To Sweet" and "The Silent Sun." Recently Genesis' albums were remixed and re-released on CD with bonus DVDs that contained some live performances and Dolby stereo mixes and the like, and some bonus interviews with the band, in one of them (Trespass, I think) Mike Rutherford says he doesn't even consider it the band's first album! A shame, it's not so bad. It's nothing I'm going to revisit a hell of a lot either, though.
There have always been a # of Babblers willing to go to bad for FGTR, too.
