DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

PETER GABRIEL (ABO #147)


PETER GABRIEL
GAMES WITHOUT FRONTIER

Peter Gabriel... Well... Let me start by telling you this has been a hard one to make. I love Peter Gabriel and feel all his albums have much to offer. For example, listening to his first album (aka Car) made me want to pick almost every song on it which would have been silly, let's admit it. Therefore, tough choices had to be made and... God! Was it a hard!
What I wanted was to offer a rich panorama of the man's art using only his studio recordings (a trick I used so to limit the choice for this very compilation) and include a few rarities so to spice up the selection a bit. I hope I managed that and that you will enjoy the wide variety of emotions and sounds Mr. Gabriel has been able to create throughout his long (but not so) productive career. Anyway, here it is, give it a try and don't forget to tell me what you thought of it.

Was Blood of Eden one of the tough choices to leave off? Thanks.

Yes, indeed it was.
I tried to include as many "necessary" tracks as possible and keep it a double cd (which is quite a lot for a 7 studio albums career by the way). I also wanted to give more than just "classics" hence the inclusion of the Gershwin cover or some soundtrack's songs such as Book of Love or Down To Earth (respectively from Shall We Dance and Wall-E).
Like I said in my short introduction, it was quite a hard selection to make and I've got to say I'm pretty happy with it.

Ah, I see. Not complaining. In fact, I'm taking this collection on my vacation/holiday. I'm always interested in how others build retrospectives (picking songs, order) for artists which I enjoy. Thanks again.

I am also a big Gabriel fan. This looks like a great set! Glad to see 'Sledgehammer' isn't here! ;)

OOOPS! Just saw Sledgehammer is indeed there! I'll admit it is a pretty good song but I am partial to his less hit-oriented songs. I don't want to seem critical of your choices as I know I will enjoy this mix.
