Looking at the number of Genesis songs on display here, for sure Ray Wilson had to be very dissapointed when Genesis called it a day after just one album with Wilson. The international media didn't give the band a chance and slagged them off completely, most of them without even listening to the album I'm afraid! Listening to Calling All Stations, it's remarkable how many songs have won the test of time. Not only is material pulled from that album performed, but Genesis stuff from a large chunk of their output. The mix between Wilson originals and Genesis and related material offers a nice balance between material that is not so well-known and songs that have been around constantly since the day they were perceived.
