50 years of tunes - 1974 - Genesis "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway"

This didn't used to be my favourite Genesis album but has grown in my affection over the years. If you're not a fan of Prog or Genesis then The Lamb is definitely not for you. Individually most of the songs are quite short but as an album it is long & took me ages to get to grips with. I think it's worth the effort though, it has hidden charms I'm still discovering now.
