Format: Audio CD
"PG Plays Live", released in June 1983, is more than a live album: it is the end of an era. As Rush did, publishing a live at the end of every period, Gabriel places a milestone on his probably best tour: the 1982 tour of his self titled LP: Peter Gabriel. As a matter of fact, the first 4 PG LPs are named Peter Gabriel. PG IV is known in U.S. market as Security. Its sound reaches the ethnic, dark atmosphere which Peter has developed through a obsessive sound research since his III album, a unique style which influenced lots of artists (from Kate Bush & U2 to Prodigy & 80's King Crimson - Fripp will say the opposite). In Plays Live, the PG Band is very different from current ensemble (Secret World Tour), in which only Levin & Rhodes survive: Peter Gabriel on lead vocals, synthesizer, piano Jerry Marotta on drums, percussion, b-vox Tony Levin on stick, bass, b-vox David Rhodes on guitar, b-vox Larry Fast - synthesizer, piano This version of P.G. Band was more monolithic and powerful, while last tour's Band is more skilled, jazzy and versatile, (just think about French Afro drummer Manù Katchè). Lucky fans attending any date of 1982 tour saw an hypnotic lightshow, reflecting concert's sound, and a very strong, empathic link between performers, with an almost military discipline on the stage. PG performances in the 90's are an example of World Music: female vocalists and musicians, Womad musicians cameos, dancing choreographies and a lighter climax. Apart from his golden voice, the main quality of this fantastic artist on stage is his acting ability: Gabriel can give life to every word of his lyrics, being a master of live communication, winning every culture and language difference.Read more ›

If anything, given the possibility of outtakes etc, this should be longer...instead the original double-album/tape has been reduced to a single disc. Music-wise this would be a five star offering, but it's missing several tracks: The Rhythm of the Heat, Not One of Us, Intruder, & On the Air. Taken from the Autumn 1982 US tour to promote Gabriel's fourth album, it finds PG & co more in new wave-mode; the world music influences that inform the Gabriel live video from the late 80s or 1994's Secret World Live aren't as apparent here. As was common in the 1980s (see Simple Minds Live in the City of the Light & Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense), the live recording was tampered with in the studio by Gabriel & Peter Walsh- though it does at least admit it on the sleeve! Gabriel's band here are as great as you would expect- regular players David Rhodes & Tony Levin with Larry Fast (keyboards/synths) & Jerry Marotta (drums & percussion).
Some of the songs are a little clunky in transition from studio to live arena- both I Have the Touch & No Self Control have a similar style in building up, though the conclusion of the former with Gabriel singing "I need contact!" is suitably wonderful. Family Snapshot is warmer than the studio take from the third album, pity he didn't play this track on the more recent tours Secret World & Growing Up (both on DVD). Nice to see DIY from the second album (though not including the great take of On the Air seems dumb!), which goes well with the experimental The Family & The Fishing Net and b-side I Go Swimming (which along with Games Without Frontiers is as new wave as Gabriel got).

this was the weirdly titled PLAYTIME 1988 tour- typically perverse PG anti- titling- as it was recorded in 1983!
Anyways contrary to the RISIBLE report above this is the definitive PG tour- streamlined shows, only monkey make up and lights- and BRILLIANT songs- long before RHYTHM really took over and guitars were thrown out of the window...........
DIY is a total standout here- and presents a snippet of the second album live- along with ON THE AIR- which we are unlikely to hear LIVE again from the great man.......
I THINK NEARLY ALL THE SONGS ARE PRESENTED DIFFERENTLY HERE- compared to the studio recordings and nearly all of them are better for that- apart from NO SELF CONTROL and possibly BIKO- which are still at least interesting in a completely different style- the former and possibly more emotional- biko
PGs voice is superb throughout and h NOT ONE OF US, I DONT REMEMBER, INTRUDER AND MONKEY- are all superb on here.........
AND Gabriels detached inbetween banter? is brilliantly self detached and ironic- harking back to his gabble ratchet dayze..... 'the title of this- i don't remember', 'THIS SONG IS FOR THOSE WHO KEEP THEMSELVES CLEAN'- i go swimming- etc....
THIS IS AN ASTOUNDING ALBUM AND IS THE ALBUM I fell in love with and grew up with nearly 23 years ago-
secret world is poor in comparison..........

My first Peter Gabriel album was the double LP version of this album. That 5 star album resulted in me becoming a massive fan of the ex-Genesis front man's solo career. I have knocked 1 star off this single CD review because it misses off 4 tracks. The double CD is very hard to find and I am not prepared to pay £15+ for a used copy or even more for a new copy. Peter, if you're reading this review, please release a remastered version of the full double CD. As it is the music on here is first class, focusing on the first 4 self-titled albums, and the remastered sound quality is excellent in my opinion.
