The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (Libretto) by Peter Gabriel (1974) Lyrically obscure, Genesis’ double LP concept album required explication; yet Gabriel’s sleeve notes (including perversely rhymed mood digressions) are themselves abstruse and only through resolute scrutiny reveal anything of the young Puerto Rican Rael’s surreal nightmare of discovery within New York City.
