5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Gabriel at his dynamic best, 23 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live In Athens 1987 [DVD] [2013] [NTSC] (DVD)
I pre-ordered this dvd mainly because, in my eyes, Peter has never released anything that he would consider below par. There was another reason, however, I remember going to the concert when he played the set at the NEC Birmingham, if my recollection is correct. Although the quality of the picture is not as fine as his later dvd releases, you get a real feel of the atmosphere and the appreciation of the crowd. The huge highlight is 'Lay your Hands on me', always a favourite of mine and the track that Peter seems to enjoy thoroughly especially after his intimate contact with the crowd and the trust he shows by leaning back and letting them carry him. Although he loses his shirt in the process the joy on his face couldn't possibly be acted. The sound is as good as you will hear, easily cd quality and the mix (I presume from the original sound desk) shows the technical brilliance of the band. All Peter Gabriel's fans should buy this dvd because it is genuinely a great reflection of the power of the artist at its highest.
