Top Customer Reviews
Its incredible to listen to the classic hits 'Sledgehammer' and 'Shock The Monkey' with the volume cranked up as loud as possible with that extra kick added to the sound thanks to the very latest digital remastering technology right behind them.
An absolute MUST for any Peter Gabriel fan, no matter how big or small.
Games without frontiers and Sledgehammer both peaked at number four in the UK, with Sledgehammer going all the way to number one in America. An outstanding duet with Kate Bush, Don't give up, also made the UK top ten - it was later covered by Willie Nelson and Sinead O'Connor - their duet can be found on Willie's album, Across the borderline.
Some of Peter's less successful hits are particularly noteworthy. Solsbury hill (a top twenty UK hit) is based loosely on the story of his split from Genesis. Biko (only a minor UK hit) is about Steve Biko, the murdered South African activist. It may not have made much impact on the UK singles chart but it became an anti-racist anthem. Peter's interest in world music led him to record Shaking the tree, a duet with Youssou N'Dour, a renowned Senegalese singer.
There are many other excellent songs here. A more recent double CD, hits, includes some of his later hits, but this is a great compilation in its own right.
Still, a very nice compilation covering his first five albums up to and including So.
Very Highly Recommended.
