Top Customer Reviews
This is the 15-song set from the Us-tour featuring Paula Cole (vocals), Shankar (violin, vocals), Manu Katche (drums), Jean Claude Naimro (keyboards), Levon Minassian (doudouk)& long-time Gabriel-associates Tony Levin (bass) & David Rhodes (guitar). Pity this reissue didn't include the take of San Jacinto, which is found on the DVD/VHS- though that version wasn't hugely different to the one on PG Live.
Disc One opens with a pair of tracks from Us- the bagpipe-sampling Come Talk to Me, which builds up to a suitably epic sound & a seven-minute take on hit single Steam, which is much better than the single-take & features a wonderfully atmospheric keyboard intro. Gabriel & co then travel back to the past, Womad-instrumental Across the River (found on the b-side of No Self Control & written by Gabriel with Rhodes, Shankar & Stewart Copeland)from the early 80s is performed, prior to an interlude of Slow Marimbas (from the Birdy soundtrack).Read more ›
Peter Gabriel creates such a tapestry of sounds with such a variety of instruments, and this live album is almost a celebration of that. All the musicians move effortlessly between songs in a way that suggests painstaking preparation and work. Hearing it come together is a real joy that manages to capture a 'live' sound. The talent of his musicians and collaborators is well docmented, and this is a fine showcase.
My fear was that a ten minute version of the wonderful 'In Your Eyes' would reek of self-indulgence, and though it does indulge the effect is a glowing example of what live albums can achieve. Every song has been added to and offers much more than a live version of album favourites.
