Melt In The Dream Void

Welcome back to The Revelation Station! For the second season of the show we have decided to have a listen to some of the solo albums released by the band members. We’re going to do them in order of release, rather than each artist individually. That means the honour of the first episode goes to Mr Steve Hackett.

Released in 1975, Voyage of the Acolyte is the first of 25 albums by everyone’s favourite Genesis guitarist (sorry Ant but you know it’s true). Written across several years and recorded in the immediate aftermath of Peter quitting the band, this is often regarded as a lost Genesis record and with good reason. It features tracks that were rehearsed by the band for such classic albums as Foxtrot and Selling England By The Pound. Which ones? Hey, I’m not telling you everything here! I need you to listen to the podcast, what am I? A transcript?

Gasp as Simon tells you which track was the first Steve Hackett song he heard! Chuckle as Gary gets things wrong! Shout as they inevitably dislike one of the tracks you really love! And as a bonus, this episode features a very rare, never heard before archive recording of Steve pitching the album to Tony Stratton Smith for the very first time. What will his reaction be? Listen to find out.
