 Genesis (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Genesis recorded its first album, 1969's From Genesis to Revelation, after striking a deal with Jonathan King, an alum of their school and a songwriter and producer who had a hit single at the time called "Everyone's Gone to the Moon".
The band recorded a series of songs reflecting the light pop style of the Bee Gees, of whom King was very fond, and King assembled these tracks into a pseudo-concept album, layering on string arrangements into the music during production.
Musical arrangements on the band's first album From Genesis to Revelation were influenced by the works of The Moody Blues, Family, and The Bee Gees as Jonathan King was a self-professed admirer of their music.
