Is that right??   Never bothered to even read the credits from the Box set -- that's bizarre to pull that one simple credit!
 
I know that the members of Genesis got real uptight about songwriting credits after The Lamb -- they really spell it out on Trick & W&W.  I don't know, man ... Tony just seems like one stuffy, uptight guy sometimes.  I always got the sense that Tony had a bug up his ass about Steve -- despite the fact that it's those two who are credited with writing "Blood On The Rooftops", which has one of the best mellotron parts ever.
 
As for Phil -- always seemed like a groovy chap to me, until "Both Sides" .... yech.

I was amazed when I read that about The Lamb, and never really realised what was giong on in Trick and W&W. Thanks for that Gary - you've really opened my eyes. Not sure I agree about "Blood on the Rooftops" though - I think Radio as Paper does the same thing but way better. ANd Brian Eno's Youth adfairs portfolio eh whaty?

Yeah that track is VERY Eno.
 
Overall The Lamb has a lot of bizzare ambient soundscapes going on, even if he only contributed to one track or two, he seems to have had some influence on the record as a whole. I'd say it's the most ambitious and challenging of all the Genesis records.
