Olive tree - Dark side mix
Am I the only person that thinks that the sequence of the songs released might be the i/o tracklist order, e.g. track 1 will be Panopticom, track 2 will be The Court…?
I think that could be se same of the Tour Programme, but I don't know if it's different from the release order.
Also for me it was the first real concert seen, that of the Invisible Tour, but in Milan on 19 May 1987. Within a month and a half I would then see Peter Gabriel on June 10th and Steve Hackett in an acoustic concert in July. Great shows!!! I had already seen Peter Gabriel in 1980 and 1983 with my brother, but I was still a child , I was not a fan yet and I don’t remember much.
After 7 tracks, in my opinion I/O is going to reveal as a real great album. The only two songs that I don’t think are excellent are Panopticom and I/O, but maybe they are a step below the others because in older times they would have been the singles from the record. For what I can hear from live recordings, I think that This is Home and Love Can Heal are also real masterpieces. The only criticism in my opinion is about the amalgam of songs. There's a huge predominance of intimate songs, almost only piano/voice (including the two unreleased songs I mentioned before). With the risk that the album as a whole may be monotonous. What do you think about that?
Could really Show yourself be the same song of the 2012/14 tour? I think Why don't you show yourself must have been registered year ago, before the Back to front dvd. Or not?
I agree with Arnaudz, for me too the beginning of the song reminds me Kiss that frog
Sorry... someone take me for a ride. Yesterday setlist.fm shown as below
The setlist of the gig has been heavily changed for the Lille show, according to setlst.fm...
In: Here comes the flood, Games without frontiers, San Jacinto, The veil (!!!), I have the touch (!!!), Shock the monkey, Moribund the burgermeister (!!!), Father son
Out: Washing of the water, And still, What lies ahead, Big time, Biko, Don't give up, In your eyes, Olive tree, Red rain.
I like the new setlist: some unexpected songs are in, and some songs played too much are out. I like In your eyes, but it has been the first encore from 1987 till yesterday!!! Three new songs are out with more older stuff. 3 songs from pg1, 3 from pg3, 3 from pg4. Only 1 from So.
I voted Nursey, Foxtrot and Selling England, but I am really uncertain....
I really love all the albums from trespass to duke, and even after in each album they have put some masterpiece..
I love the album, but the title-track itself for me is only sufficient +. I prefer the "Light dies down" version...
I'd really like if Peter
Peter has added the complete audio of the Back To Front Live In London release to the collections of his full moon bandcamp subscribers. Next week we'll get a band version of Playing For Time.
I'd really prefer if we'll get recordings of some of the old unreleased tracks, like John has ea headachem, Why don't we, ecc....
