Here are some inside pages from this program. I only included the pictures which, although B&W are quite nice. All text is in Italian which, although interesting (I think)I cannot read it.

I have put this Italian text into a translator and came out with some much broken English. All I have to say is Italian-to-English translation needs a lot of work. However, itis readable so I've included it below.

At some point I will try tofix some of the errors, but much of them are quite funny. What Italian word translates to 'Pear Tree'?


Little piu of 4 years ago a young person and enterprising manager took in rent an apartment to Soho, transformed it in office and with in hand the contract of a complex on the hem of the breach for the dissolvimen to of their record house, ne it formed one for they: the Charisma. The complex called The  Nice, the manager, Tony Stratton-Smith. This collaboration would have given life to one of piu the dynamic organizations of the record world of the last years. Rare Bird, Audience, Van Der Graaf Generator, Genesis, Jackson Heights, Davison Every Which Way, the Bells +Arc, Lindisfarne, Monty Python' s Flying Circus, Spread eagle, String Driven Thing, Capability Brown, Atacama, Bo Hansson... and excused if I have tralasclato someone, questisono the names that during last the four years have caratteritzato, given life and generated the unconditioned interest for this young furnace of talents.

Some names are gia, unfortunately, passings, but without before to have had the necessary one and deserved acknowledgment. Tony Stratton-Smith, that she continues to give its manageriato one to all, would not allow nobody to abandon without to have before exausted the cartridges. Other names have always become piu large  until catching up po to the time a large public like the Lindisfarne and the Genesis. First catching up the high places of all the classifiche and becoming the idoli of the crowds of festivals and the second ones conquering the admiration and the respectare of public who of critic ovunque recently has exhibited itself. 

The Lindisfarne and the Genesis, with support of the Capability the Brown, last discovered of Tony Stratton-Smith, will be between the public Italian in order to begin one new series of Charisma Festivals a evening of love, music and (hope) peace. Milan and Rome will be the two stages of this first one package and I would not have farvi to notice that Milan and be reopened to the large concerts rock after one quarantine of a yearand means. We try of farla remaining open leaving politics to outside of rooms concert. 

This and a desire of Lindisfarne, Genesis and Capability Brown, but above all creed is also Yours. 


The summer of the arrived Genesis and with the the ' 72 autumn of and a wonderful album, Foxtrot. that, fastly is imposing them like one of piu the warm formations in international field .

For who it has followed close give the musical developments of the English complex and like having observed a hearth constantly ignited unde rone layer of grigla, but warm live coal. Nursery Cryme has heated the atmosphere and hours Foxtrot the old hearth with high, burning and colored flames has finally moved that one shown grayish surface ravvivando.

The Genesis in little months is tax to the attention of the meticulous critic piu and to the unexpected one they are passing from triumph in triumph. The Olympia of Paris, the Coliseum of London, the Philarmonic Hall di New York is only the first stages of this dear formation.

The Genesis one of the piu ago came to the light several years to the Chartehouse School di Guilford respected Public School English, where Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks and Michael Rutherford, between a examination and the other, found a deep tie musical. The boys then aspired to become optimal composers of songs of happening, but they were not still shrewed that their musics and their backs were ahead in the time, too much ahead. When trusting in their creations they began to go around usual of the record houses cozzarono against a large wall. The record ones, legacies to thesimple musical topics of the successes of the moment, watched our future heroes with esterefatti eyes like if were I'reconnaissance of one squadron come down from a U.F.O. (Not identified Flying Object). Pear tree succeeded to arouse a sure interest in Jonathan King, a former companion of school, hours large pawn to the English Decca. With he they recorded a album, From Genesis To Reveletion, but the thing Moors them and the complex not and never rivers

Then, to the unexpected one, the small miracle arrival under shape of Tony Stratton-Smith who during that period had formed a record label, the Charisma, with two successes: Nice and Rare Bird. One tightened ofhand, a new album, Trespass, a devastating brano, The Knife and the Genesis were definitively in track.

Nursery Cryme, recorded nelI' summer-autumn of the ' 71, I too much reveal indecipherable for one critical English who was... giving the numbers for Marc Bolan, Hot Love and Co the album pear tree absolutely unnoticedno-go gage in Europe; in Germany, France and especially Belgium and Italy the Genesis came favorably received is from the critic that gives the public. Foxtrot, recorded between July and August of the ' 72, was by now destined to become one mlliare stone in the career of the complex. The last oneat the same time entered in nearly all the European classifiche and the English critic blushed in order not to essersi notice time before one of piu the wonderful products of house.

The rest and by now part of the history and when the analysts ofthe rock of the next decade will turn a retrospettivo look to years ' 70,will find very difficult to omit the Genesis from their reports.

Anthony and Michael decided to make a tape to send in turn and hadcosi need of a pianista-organista after to have accepted the aid of Tonywe decided to put within also our songs.

Without experience not we are rendered account that all our ideas were remained in our mind and badly they have not goneon tape. There and a brano, " The Place To Call My Own ", that it couldbe truly good and when risento the hours give much nostalgia to me.

How you have arrived to the Charisma?

Through evenings perche our tapes had been refused from all the English record houses esistentl.

Dave Rare Anthony and the Bird saw to us and ne they spoke to Stratton-Smith and we acceptedto go with the Charisma perche in that period we were all fascinated of the Nice. Also Mike Plnder of the Moody Blues had shown interest in wefor the Threshold label, but we wanted to avoid a ollowing comparison with the Moody Blues..
