This review is from: Peter Gabriel: Live In Athens 1987 [Blu-ray + Bonus DVD]  (Blu-ray)
Just arrived yesterday, I had been looking forward to this one since pre ordering a while back. I have to say that it's a totally different experience and much more rewarding when compared to the original POV release, a concert video that I always frustrating. It's now a straight concert bluray without the extra bits of backstage and archive footage shown over parts of songs. It also features the whole setlist which is very nice. I can only imaging what audience members who were unfamiliar with PG's work prior to the SO album must have thought when he broke into songs like The Family And The Fishing Net or Intruder. One question though, why almost edit out the electronic drum sounds out of The Family And The Fishing Net ? very strange. Anyway, this Blu ray looks lovely given the age of the footage and it sounds pretty sweet too. On top of this you get the rather nice support show from Youssou N'Dour too, and if this wasn't enough you also get PLAY, the dvd of promo video's. This has the error fixed that the standalone release had where the DTS soundtrack didn't play correctly on a lot of players. great value package really. 5 stars from me for turning what I thought was a fairly poor concert video (POV) into a stunning document of an important point in PG's career.
