Summary

"In 1974 the British progressive rock group Genesis released their double concept album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway." "Kevin Holm-Hudson analyses The Lamb within the context of Genesis's recorded output, within the progressive rock genre as a whole, and within the context of social and political changes of the mid 1970s. The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway makes a particularly rich subject for detailed study, providing compelling intersections between the musical, textual and socioeconomic aspects of an album."--BOOK JACKET.

Excerpts

In 1974 the British progressive rock group Genesis released their double concept album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, now widely regarded as a classic album of 1970s progressive rock. As the book's title implies, this study will analyse The Lamb both within the context of progressive rock, examining its special place in Genesis's recorded output and in the progressive rock genre as a whole, and within the context of social and political changes of the mid 1970s.
