Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway Demos
Oh, Peter Gabrie-era Genesis. Just the thought makes me wish I had been born earlier. It's a shame that he's too much of a sacred cow (no insult intended) to stoop to tour with them on this reunion thing they got going. I have read his reasons and can totally understand, but nonetheless it prevented me from buying a ticket. They would have had at least $200-$300 of my money if he had come for the ride. I really have no use for the Phil Collins hits or to hear him sing Gabriel's songs. Not knocking anyone's music tastes - just showing off my idiotic reasoning for this. Enough of that, these demos are from my favorite Genesis album of all. Such epic proportions and depth of emotion that must have launched them miles ahead of their peers upon it's initial release. Can't pick any one favorite from the whole but hearing the songs in embryonic form and even instrumental takes is a pleasure to my old ears. Hope one or two of you kiddies enjoy it to.
The enclosed pics of the inserts will show the track listings for all of you - my hands are tired from typing all night.
