The First Peter Gabriel album includes everything from blues, a barbarshop, a symphony and some classic tunes like Solsbury hill. It also features such artists as Steve Hunter and Robert Fripp on Guitar, Tony Levin on bass (and on later albums on stick) and Bob Ezrin producing. My personal favorite for PG with such tracks as morbimund the burgermiester and here comes the flood (which he has rerecorded many times with alt versions appearing on Fripps album Exposrue as well as a different version on Gabriels album Sixteen Golden Greats.Digitally remastered 2002

 

The second installment of the Peter Gabriel line is a more american sounding disc produced by Roberrt Fripp (king crimson). While Gabriel plays few tracks from his first two albums live this one features some classics with DIY, White Shadow, Exposure (which was later redone on Fripps albume "exposure" ) and most notabley, ON THE AIR.Digitally remastered 2002


I think the 3rd Peter Gabriel album is most known for his song BIKO. This album is soft and hard. It has an almost King Crimson flavor at times. Some of the songs are very abstract and the production is great. There is also a version of this album in which PG has rerecorded all the vocals in German. Kate Bush Guests on Vocals as she does later on his album SO.Digitally remastered 2002

 

Security was to be the 4th ablum that was seft titled but PG's Label thought otherwise and gave it a title. Known for SHOCK THE MONKEY and I HAVE THE TOUCH this album features some very mystifying tracks such as THE FAMILY AND THE FISHING NET. However, this all digital recording was not produced very well and sounds a bit flat. Digitally remastered 2002

 

Peter Gabriel completes and era by putting out a live album from his SECURITY tour. Featuring unreleased tracks like I GO SWIMMING and great performances of DIY and ON THE AIR this album has recently been remastered and is a great collection of live tunes.Digitally remastered 2002 as highlights minus some tracks including ON THE AIR.
