“Abacab“, released in 1981, is the eleventh studio album by British band Genesis. The album marks a sharp stylistic jump away from their progressive rock style of the 1970s and toward a radio-friendly pop music sound.
The album was released with four different embossed covers simultaneously across the country, all depicting the same collage but with the paper shapes in different colors.
The four different cover variants – noted on the album spine as either “A”, “B”, “C”, or “D” – are usually identified by the color of the largest upper shape adjacent to the title lettering; this cover being Red, Blue, Yellow & Grey or cover “C”.
