“Genesis – Together and Apart” New BBC Documentary Coming Soon.

Posted 16 Jun 2014 in Prog-Rock, Steve Hackett

  Genesis and the BBC have been working together over the last few months on GENESIS: TOGETHER AND APART A feature length documentary on one of the most successful bands in rock history. From its first beginnings as a band of songwriters in the late 1960s to its final incarnation as a rock giant in the 1990s – via full-blown theatrical progressive rock in the mid-1970s and the subtler jazzy pop of the early 1980s – Genesis could perplex and enrage the die-hards, whilst exciting and exhilarating the newer disciples. Made with the full co-operation of Genesis, the film reunites all original members of the band together – Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Mike Rutherford – for...

Peter Gabriel ‘Rockpalast Live 1978’

  Song Of the Day by Eric Berman – “On The Air” & “Moribund The Burgermeister” by Peter Gabriel (Live from Rockpalast, 1978) By the time of the broadcast from this 1978 Rockpalast show, Peter Gabriel was three years past his Genesis days and was out on the road promoting his second solo record, Peter Gabriel (which also goes by the names Peter Gabriel II and Scratch because of its album jacket image). I’ve already written several pieces on Peter Gabriel’s second album and its unique relationship with two other Robert Fripp productions, Sacred Songs by Daryl Hall and Fripp’s own Exposure , but a nice pro-shot concert from this era is a real find worth sharing. The video...

Peter Gabriel Responds To “So” 25th Anniversary Box Set Criticism

Posted 02 Sep 2012 in Music + TV News

  Peter Gabriel has been receiving some criticism for the box set of the 25rh anniversary addition of his classic album So.  It seems that many outspoken people are not happy with what was chosen to be included in the package. Peter’s  letter below is a directed response to a specific piece that was written by Paul Sinclair of SuperDeluxeEdition.com, a website that is as they put it nicely “the music blog for enthusiasts who crave deluxe editions, super deluxe editions, box sets and love holding the music in their hands… — Larry Carta   Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook share via Reddit Share with Stumblers Tweet about it Subscribe to the comments on this post

Genesis “Foxtrot”

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#700 in the Series) is Genesis, Foxtrot One thing that we do here at Cool Album of the Day is endeavor to bring you something special for our milestone numbered posts. As you’ve just read, this piece represents entry number 700. So today we bring you an album that more than arguably could be considered the best progressive-rock album of all time. It contains a song that could also potentially be considered the best progressive rock song of all time.  You already know the album is Foxtrot, and the song of course that I’m referring to is “Supper’s Ready.” Some  may say that Genesis’ magnum opus should be considered The Lamb lies...

The Call “Reconciled”

Posted 05 Apr 2012 in 80s, Albums of 1986, Albums of the 80s

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#672 in the Series) is The Call, Reconciled. One topic that I tend to revisit often is about the “Band That Didn’t Get Their Due.”  The Call fits that line as well as any act on these pages. Despite some great songs, a decent label push and some nice guest stars, Reconciled got some airplay but didn’t click like it should have I believe. Two tracks received most of the play. ‘They were the first two tracks on the disc, “Everywhere I Go” and “I Still Believe.”  I once heard an old saying around record stores.  “If you’re thinking of buying a album and don’t know much about it. Don’t buy it  if...

Peter Gabriel is Preparing Special 25th Anniversary Edition of his “So” Album, and He’d Like Your Help

  2012 marks the 25th anniversay of Peter Gabriel’s classic So album.  That’s the one that introduced us to songs like “Red Rain,” “Sledgehammer,” ” In Your Eyes,” ” Big Time,” and the Kate Bush duet “Don’t Give Up.” The Gabriel camp has announced that they will be releasing a 25th anniversary package and they’d like your help on it. Here’s what they’re looking for: “We would love to see your memorabilia from back in 1986. Do you have any original So merchandise, posters and tickets for the So tour? Your photos relating to the album release or the concerts? Even a diary entry from 25 years ago which tells a special story about the album release or So...

Peter Gabriel “LiveOnLetterman” Appearance Available On-Demand.

    Cool Album of the Day has learned that Peter Gabriel will be a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday November 9th. 2011. It has not been announced if he will be musical guest or just sit in the chair and chat. He has recently been doing interviews on the chat shows in the UK.  He also performed “San Jacinto” along with his interview on the Jools Holland Show.  (See Below) I don’t see how he can bring that size the orchestration needed to do these songs justice into a smaller stage like the Letterman’s Ed Sullivan Theater.  He could opt to play a song piano track or perform something with Paul Shafer and...

Peter Gabriel “Plays Live”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#456 in the Series and #44 in the Live, Saturday Night Series) is Peter Gabriel, Play’s Live Peter Gabriel, Plays Live… for me, this is a Desert Island Disc. And it’s not even close. Peter Gabriel’s first few solo albums after leaving Genesis are some of my favorite albums.  This was recorded on his 1982 tour.  He was on the road promoting his fourth album, the one that here in the States is called Security. It was released in a few different packages. The main release in 1983 was a double album.  The CD format of the album was also a double; however there was also a single CD version that was four...

Otis Redding “The Dock of the Bay”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#252 in the Series) is Otis Redding, The Dock of the Bay. I’ve felt that I’ve neglected the “Soul/R + B” genre for some time.  I’d really like to add more to this area.  I looked into a few albums I considered and while doing so, I stumbled upon a historical fact that I did not know. I’m guessing many of you did, but I’m almost ashamed to admit that I did not. I was not aware that Otis Redding recorded his masterpiece, “(Sitting on) The Dock of the Bay” only three days before he lost his life. In fact, the song was not even considered the finished product. Otis had not written...

Talk Talk “The Party’s Over”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#244 in the Series) is Talk Talk, The Party’s Over. Talk Talk was another one one of those ‘New Romantic’ genre bands that emerged in the early 80s. As mentioned earlier, I was a big fan of that sound. I listened to a large amount of music from artists like Talk Talk, Icehouse, Ultravox, Echo and the Bunnymen etc. In 1982 Genesis did the only reunion show that they’ve ever done since Peter Gabriel left seven years earlier. Talk Talk, while still in their infancy, was the opening band.  They were NOT received well at all. But oddly enough, about four years down later many Genesis fans would become fans as Talk Talk’s...
