It was coming in the air that night

We could feel this change coming in the air back in 1976.

It was on this day (2nd Feb) that Genesis released 'A Trick Of The Tail'.

Their seventh studio album was the first one that had Phil Collins on vocals after Peter Gabriel had left.

They did try finding a new member and they interviewed over 400 singers.

Phil even tried teaching a few of them but in the end they decided he was better.
