'Selling England by the Pound' hit the spot (sort of speak) as Genesis had record sales with this baby!

'Selling England by the Pound' LP, Wikipedia

Their fifth album not only made a killing with sales but also charted very well at least in the U.K. at #3, however; not as well in the U.S. only charting at #70.

'Selling England by the Pound' was labeled the "best progressive rock album" of the era.
