Guitarist Steve Hackett joined Genesis in 1971, making his band debut on the Nursery Cryme album which enjoyed a greater commercial success in Europe than the UK. After extensive touring, the band were encouraged, by audience reactions, to further experiment with ever longer compositions and develop their ability to incorporate strong narratives. This, in turn, allowed frontman Peter Gabriel more opportunity to indulge in the theatrics which helped to raise the band's profile.

"I think Foxtrot was a terrific achievement for Genesis at that time," says Steve Hackett. "I think there is not one weak track on the album, they all have their strong points and I'm really looking forward to doing the whole album live."

Foxtrot was critically acclaimed and became the first Genesis album to make the UK album charts. The first track, the sci-fi influenced Watcher of the Skies became a fan favourite and perennial live set opener while Get 'Em Out By Friday was a cutting slice of social comment about concrete tower blocks replacing aging slums, driven not by concern for communities but by the greed of developers.

Hackett was the lead writer of Can-Utility and the Coastliners, featuring some particularly strong musical ideas, and also contributed his classically-inspired solo piece Horizons. "The original version was a rough mix but there was something about it. A rough monitor mix can have things that something more considered won't necessarily possess. I liked the sound of the rough mix, so we went with that."

The album's highlight was the 23-minute epic Supper's Ready which remains a concert favourite and featured on Hackett's recent Seconds Out tour. "'Supper's Ready' was a sojourn, an odyssey and something that goes down very, very well with audiences now." Hackett adds. "As part of 'Second's Out' I've been playing the whole of that again, it really has stood the test of time."

"We were a young, struggling band at that time. By the time we were doing 'Foxtrot', the band was becoming more ambitious. 'Foxtrot' is a must for fans of the early Genesis work. Fifty years ago? It doesn't feel like those ideas are fifty years old because it was-genre defining, rather than following trends. It still sounds current, now."
