A 1975 album recorded by Genesis, released on the Charisma label.  Released during the period after Peter Gabriel left the band, but before Genesis stopped being delightfully weird.  Worth listening to all the way through.

They don't even know of our existence.
Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
That lies in the deep distance, he cried......
