Selling England by the Pound is the fifth studio album by Genesis, released on 12 October 1973 through Charisma records. The album's opening track Dancing with the Moonlit Knight gives the perfect snapshot of what Genesis were about at this point. It's folk roots gradually morph into elgar-esque, jazz rock grandeur as the band finally captured their true sound on vinyl. It still retains the creepy sense of edwardian ghosts in there too. By this point Collins' jazz-rock drumming was transforming their set pieces into much sprightlier offerings such as the second part to Cinema Show where Gabriel's love of TS Eliot also comes to the fore.
