    Wow- Peter Gabriel is Really Good!

    Letting You-Tube do its thing, I'm hearing a lot of Peter Gabriel and it's awesome! I mean, I knew a lot of songs he had, but some others are great too. And he tried to help people. Good stuff.

    Check out:

    EDIT- He's not dead or anything... I only wrote after rediscovering some of his old songs through YouTube.

    I saw him live in the 80's when he was touring for So. Great show!

    Not his song but I heard this for the first time a few days ago:

    I love early Genesis with Peter Gabriel.
    Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and Suppers Ready are nothing short of amazing.

    I'll look into his songs. Seems like I only remember a few hits that were overplayed or tv theme songs, maybe both. Probably didn't get to know his other or better stuff and give it a fair shake.

    I'm now more likely to just sit and listen to music at times while futzing around the house doing 'chores'. I let the cd channel play on my tv as Sirius or Dish CD.

    Used to be around HiFi equip in my early career (back in the nineteen hundreds) lol - now just some simple mid-end equip tied into the tv sound set up. I do like to liven up the Marantz, Polk / Klipsch trio at times though ! Usually home alone during the daytime so I can DO.WHAT.I.WANT

    So is a classic disc, with several hits (Sledgehammer, Don't Give Up, Red Rain, etc.). Be sure to check this one out.

    Genesis played at my school in the late 60s and Peter had broken his leg a couple of days earlier. He did the whole show sitting in a chair, and managed to crack and break most of the plaster cast on his leg. He was still superb. I've been a fan ever since. Lamb Lies Down was his Magnum Opus with Genesis, and the end of the association, but still stands the test of time. Just listen to 'Fly on a Windshield' and you'll hear Genesis at their most amazing. Tony Banks said that intro was the best thing they ever recorded. Solo he has always been a cut above too... a truly great artist.

    I thought the same thing, thanks for doing the leg work on that.

    Peter Gabriel and Genesis, great stuff. What more do you have to say.

    I got that impression, too. Thanks for doing the research.

    Edit: I obviously didn't see TR's post!

    The same goes for several other countries too. France has some awesome stuff, as does Italy. It's just those things are not in English, so we rarely see them over here...

    He was awesome with Genesis, solo and still has it... with more recent collaborations. Saw him live with Sting a few years back and it was a great show!

    Another often overlooked early Genesis album is "Selling England by the Pound". That has some amazing stuff on. "Cinema show" is a classic...
