Entangled: Genesis On Record 1969-1976

Code: 978-1-915246-62-2
Publication date 28th September 2024.
Did Genesis represent the best and most classic definition of a progressive rock band? Were they the most British? What kind of personalities and sensibilities did we get out of Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford and where did all these 12-string guitars come from? What’s a “Giant Hogweed” and who is “Harold the Barrel?” Finally, what the heck is The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway about, anyway?
These are some of the questions grappled with, as Martin Popoff assembles a crack team of art rock analysts to examine the early-days records of this legendary band, namely:
From Genesis to Revelation
Nursery Cryme
Selling England by the Pound
The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway
A Trick of the Tail
Wind & Wuthering
Indeed, each of the above is dissected track by track with side-trips into the album covers, the productions, lyrical narratives, and individual performances of note. It is the hope of the author that by the end of this fantastical excursion, the reader will have discovered multiple new layers to this intensely cerebral band, prompting a reacquaintance and subsequent richness of experience when confronted with this, let’s face it, often daunting catalogue.
Paperback: 234 x 156 mm, 272pp.
