    The show was in Worcester, MA - and it was the second night of a two-night stand. Before PG began the song, he mentioned the change in the setlist was for anyone attending both shows. My buddy Bill and I loved the song - so yeah, it certainly felt like a "special deal" to us.

    I saw him there about 30 years later on that tour with Sting we were discussing earlier.

    Thanks for the offer LC40 but I think I’ve got a copy on the way.

    Now playing Long Walk Home 2xLP and really enjoying it.

    I will admit to not giving his soundtrack work enough listens over the years.

    I think his first 2 soundtracks are exceptionally good and sit very comfortably with his vocal or song based albums. If Ovo is considered a soundtrack (which it is in my view) then that’s another one that sits well alongside his major works (if you skip The Story if Ovo which is not worthy on being on the album IMO). Long Walk Home isn’t quite up there for me but when I played the vinyl edition I did feel that it worked well across the various sides in a way that listening to the CD without those interludes didn’t.
    Great to read though that you are exploring these corners of his catalogue.

    Has anybody got a North American version of And I’ll Scratch Yours issued in January 2014. For some reason that version has yet to make it onto Discogs. I could do with the catalogue number for my discography if possible.

    Also when issued in the U.K. you could buy a 2CD and 2LP edition coupled with Scratch My Back.

    Were either of these issued as North American editions and if so what are their catalogue numbers?

    Yes, Low Light makes for a vastly superior opening track. IMHO, naturally.

    I’m spinning Passion in the home office to help get through a busy Monday at work.

    Stunning piece of music that I was too young to appreciate in ‘89 but has grown in stature with me every year since!

    It really is. My only problem with it is finding a time when I can actually really enjoy it. It's a bit too mellow to be work music for me, but it really is an incredible work.

    I’ve not seen this mentioned yet on the forum – a small bit of Gabriel news. Plays Live will be made available in its 2CD version again beginning March 19 (as opposed to the abridged 1CD highlights version, which cut ‘The Rhythm Of The Heat,’ ‘Not One Of Us,’ ‘Intruder,’ and ‘On The Air’). This is the Tony Cousins 2002 remaster used on the recent digital release, the recent LP reissue and the Japanese 2CD ‘mini LP’ CDs from 2002. Though the cover is the same (the “Plays Live” text appears on this version, whereas it has sometimes been text-free), the original artwork has received a new layout by designer Marc Bessant. It’s available from Gabriel’s site and some other retailers.

    I know there’s been interest in seeing Growing Up Live, Live In Athens and Flotsam And Jetsam on CD. Given the unexpected timing of this release and Rated PG on CD, we can’t assume we’ll see those, but we can’t be sure we won’t. As the ads for Peter’s first album said, ‘expect the unexpected.’

    This is exactly what I said when the 2CD Plays Live was announced! I hope it means we'll at least get Growing Up Live on CD, which hasn't been on CD before. As for Flotsam and Jetsam, well, I would be over the moon about that as long as they include a big phat booklet with all kinds of liner notes and single sleeves, etc. As far as digital-only releases go, I think I have listened to Flotsam and Jetsam just about more than anything else I've ever downloaded.

    I gave Secret World Live a listen today on my headphones.

    Need to revisit the b-sides comp again soon!

    6stringer ...because it's the music that matters.

    Alongside The Jam, "Games Without Frontiers" was one of the first 45's I bought.

    It was at the start of my record buying and just sounded great to me. I can't say I've gone deep into his music, apart from "So" and the hits comp after that but that single - part of my initial education on what I liked in music. I still have it.

    His catalog isn’t too big, so you might check out another album or two.

    If PG edit another album I would like the sound not to be overly loud and harsh a bit like "UP", like what happened with the Genesis Remixes.
    Some albums in which the sound is fantastic, and which does not hurt the ear either in old or recent sound systems:
    Kate Bush "Aerial" , Daniel Lanois "Here Is What Is" , "Heavy Sun" Bob Dylan "Time Out of Mind".

    I get the feeling that Mastering, from the last Gabriel albums are made thinking only of digital and modern sound systems,and this doesn’t happen with Daniel Lanois’s productions

    Anyone have the 2020 pressing of Plays Live? My copy has distortion throughout Not One Of Us and Family Snapshot. Saw someone on discogs complain about it as well, saying all three replacement copies they had also had the distortion. Wondering if the pressing is just bad in general...

    Guess I'll have to request a replacement from Acoustic Sounds then. Hopefully the next copy will be better.
