Just ordered Richard ('Sound Friend') MacPhail's 'My Book of Genesis" and looking forward to reading it this coming weekend. A member of the Anon, close friend of the band, tour manager and all round support mechanism through the earlier, classic albums.

Has anyone bought or read it yet? Any views? Genesis books remain thin in the ground, so hoping it gets under the 'public school' reserve from this period. Not expecting 'The Dirty Truth' though - but I bet they got through a lot of Earl Grey at times!

There was a chunk reproduced in the latest copy of 'Prog' magazine..

I haven't read Mike Rutherford or Phil Collins book.. I might get MR's eventually but not in any hurry..

I am quite intrigued by Richard Macphail's book and it will probably be the most honest account of the times; not only Genesis but other bands in the Charisma stable, roadies and the various package tours.

Ive got a spare copy of 'opening the musical box' by Allen Hewitt looking for a home if youre interested?

^ Many thanks for the offer, Cosmiclawnmower. I've got it somewhere in the spare room - but thanks for reminding me. I must dig it out again along with Armando's book.

It was the Prog Magazine article that prompted me to get Richard's book. I thought it came in the post today, but it was the copy of Lucky Man by Greg Lake I eventually got round to ordering this week. Looks like I've got a bit of reading to do the next few weeks!

The first time I tried Hackett’s website and Amazon, it was sold out. Well, I could get it electronically from Amazon, but I wanted a print copy. Anyway, I checked on Hackett’s web store today, and was able to order it. I just have to wait for it to arrive now.
