The Rock Library
is proud to present the first book in a series of titles


In 1974 Genesis released their double concept album, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway and embarked on a landmark, six month long tour in November of that year. This ambitious stage show was the first to use multimedia to illustrate the story line. It was also the last time the band would tour with Peter Gabriel. Incredibly the show was never fully recorded, either on audio or film.

Robert Ellis followed the band from the recording studio in September 1974 and through the tour in UK and Europe, taking hundreds of shots of the band at work with the special intention of documenting it for posterity. Finally, these images have been put together by Robert personally to commemorate this significant time in the history of Genesis and Peter Gabriel.

Said Robert, "I want this book to be seen as a companion to the album, not a critique of the songs, the band, or the show - more an extended super deluxe packaging for a live album that never was."

This first edition large format hardback book will be published in the autumn of 2014, in time to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original studio album.
