When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

...at Red Rocks Ampitheatre, and I've gotta say that was one of the best shows I've seen in sometime. Apart from a body of work that speaks for itself, he was a gracious and appreciative performer, and his 62 year old voice was clear, strong, and true. Great, great, great!


...unlike some of my other favorite artists...coughBobDylancough...

That's a show I've always wanted to see. Peter Gabriel's my favorite singer.

Nope, just his own solo material. In addition to many other songs, he did the entirety of the album So from start to finish.

His shows are amazing spectacles.

I recently discovered this great cover by another person who puts on another amazing spectacle of a live show:

No, but they were playing it as pre-show music.

Something cool he shared with us: as I mentioned, he did the album So from start to finish, except that In Your Eyes, which was originally the first track on the side two, was moved to end, which is where he had always intended it should be. As he explained it, one of the limitations of vinyl is that as you get closer to the inside of the disc, there's less room (obviously,) and you lose low-end (bass) information. I did not know that.

I appreciate the 'Gabrielization' of the covers, and he certainly stamped his idiom on them. I don't care for them so much, yet I can appreciate his artistic "voice" and his sincerety of interpretation.

I know you didn't ask me, but...there's no bigger Gabriel fan in the world than me--I dare you to find one!--and I found it to be slow, unfocused and uninspired. I should listen to it a couple more times just to be sure, but it might be my least favorite Gabriel album.
