Steve Hackett Acoustic Concert and Genesis Pictures Exhibition – Together at Trading Boundaries

The exhibition of the Genesis Pictures I took in the 70s were on show at Trading Boundaries last week culminating in it coinciding with the Steve Hackett concert on the evening of Saturday 30th June.

Trading Boundaries was packed with Steve Hackett (and Genesis) fans who all enjoyed a brilliant evening of music. Steve had his nylon strung classical guitar for the evening, not his more usual famous Les Paul electric guitar.

Steve was accompanied by the hugely talented Rob Townsend on flute and saxophone as well as his brilliant jazz solo on a penny-whistle!

Roger King supplied great keyboards and the trio played a wide selection of music from Steve’s albums as well as some of the gorgeous melodic compositions he co-wrote with Genesis.

After almost two hours of music,Steve stayed afterwards and spent almost an hour talking to people from the audience, many of whom had travelled considerable distances to see the concert.

I met lots of people from the audience before and after the concert who were fascinated with the Genesis pictures that they’d never seen before and shared Genesis stories and my experience of taking the photographs of Steve Hackett and the other members of Genesis while they were rehearsing and recording The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway in July 1974      – a mere 38 years ago!

Steve Hackett
Steve is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with Genesis as part of their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, that produced acclaimed albums such as Selling England by the Pound (a favourite of John Lennon). With Steve’s extraordinary versatility in both his electric guitar playing and his composing, he involves influences from many genres, including Jazz, World Music and Blues. He is equally adept in his classical albums that include renditions of pieces by composers from Bach to Satie, his own acoustic guitar compositions that have gained the admiration of many, including Yehudi Menuhin, and ambitious guitar/ orchestra albums such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic. With Genesis, Steve’s guitar playing produced some of the most memorable moments, from the sensitivity of his acoustic sound on Horizons and Blood on the Rooftops the dramatic rock guitar solos of Firth of Fifth and Fountain of Salmacis. As he embarked on his solo career he developed his exceptional range, pushing musical boundaries into exciting areas, inventing new sounds and also techniques such as ‘tapping’. His solo career went from strength to strength and the mid eighties not only saw the hit single Cell 151, but also the Steve Hackett and Steve Howe super group GTR, highly successful in America.

I was commissioned to take photographs of Genesis in 1974 at Headley Grange in Hampshire where they were writing and rehearsing their album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. These photographs have laid dormant in my collection until recently when I decided to post them onto my website www.GenesisPictures.co.uk so they could be shared.
