German (BVMI)

Genesis And Then There Were Three, was released in 1978, reaching No.3 in the UK and #14 in the United States (becoming their first RIAA certified Gold Album on 5/31/78).  The title comes from a verse of the children’s rhyme “Ten Little Indians” (“Four little Injuns up on a spree, One got fuddled and then there were three”); is a reference to the recent departure of Steve Hackett, reducing Genesis to a trio (which would result in their longest unchanged line-up, which lasted until 1996) – Wikipedia
