Peter Gabriel - Recording Compendium

Official stuff, Demos, Outtakes & more


Within the Genesis family, there is hardly another musician, who has been that active in terms of songwriting and recording and collaborating with others as is Peter Gabriel, especially aside from his studio albums. That's quite exciting on the one hand, but on the other hand it's nearly impossible to keep a complete picture, i.e. what Peter Gabriel music is out there aside from his albums.

With this Recoridng Compendium we try to bring some light in the dark, trying to be as meticulous as possible. We have divided the whole Compendium into different parts related to album periods. We focus on studio material, but also songs that were only performed live are listed. With the additional info to each track, we focus on the necessary info like recording and first release date and the best available purchaseable sound quality. Bootleg / unreleased live recordings are also considered. Detailed info about each track and each version is unnecessary at this point.

Generally, the tracks are listed in order related to their recording date (not the release date!). The different parts usually end after the tour for the related album and they begin when Peter starts working on new material.

Each listing is organized as follows:

1. Collaborations after the previous tour

2. Demos

3. Album Tracks

4. Outtakes created during the album sessions, which didn't make it onto the final list

5. Alternative Versions of album tracks and outtakes

6. Live Recordings of tracks so far unavailable in studio versions

7. Official Live Releases

8. Collaborations created until the end of the tour

Due to the release schedule of some albums, this structure cannot be followed 100% all the time. Furthermore, all parts should be seen as "work-inprogress" documents, which can be evolved further at any time.

Clarification of terms and formattings used

From many tracks, a lot of different versions are available. Additions to the track title follow this scheme:

  • (addition in round brackets and bold font) = official titel extension
  • [addition in aquare brackets and normal font] = inofficially used title extension - they serve a better distinction for this compendium

For distinction purposes, all versions of individual tracks are listed with additional title extensions. In case there is no official title extension, we added extensions as follows:

  • [demo] = song / version of a track in it's "embryo" status
  • [original version] = different version / recording of a track, that was recorded professionally prior to it's inclusion on an album
  • [original mix] = a professional but different recording of a track, that was released elsewhere before its inclusion on a later album release
  • [alternate mix] = slightly different mix of a track
  • [instrumental] = track without vocals, but same mix
  • [instrumental mix] = track without vocals, but mixed differently compared to the original
  • [full length version] = track in longer version compared to the album version
  • [edit] = shorter version of the album version, but same mix
  • [remix] = newly mixed / reworked Version

For any remarks, feedback, mistakes detected, additions etc, please feel free to contact us via our contact form. Any contribution is welcome!
