Peter Gabriel: Live in Athens 1987
20 November 2013
Conclusion: This high definition version of 'Peter Gabriel: Live in Athens 1987' is one of the holy grails for Peter Gabriel fans. The video and audio presentations here are top notch, and we finally get the entire concert on disc. Not to mention a completely separate DVD of 23 music videos. If you're fan of Peter Gabriel or just a fan of music, this Blu-ray release comes highly recommended.
Excerpt: Peter Gabriel has been a staple of the pop scene for so long that it's hard to remember a time when he wasn't making music. Gabriel got his start as a founding member of the seminal band Genesis in 1967 and spent over a decade making classic rock with Mike Rutherford and company. Gabriel stayed in Genesis for almost twelve years (as both the lead singer and one of the main songwriters), departing in 1975 to branch out as a solo artist.
Conclusion: Peter Gabriel Live in Athens 1987 is going to be a near religious experience for Gabriel fans, especially those who are still holding onto ancient copies of P.O.V. or last year's DVD. This is certainly one of the most impressive releases we've yet seen from Eagle Rock, a "little" label that continues to blow music fans (like I am) away with its often incredible offerings. This Blu-ray offers great video and stupendous audio and comes Highly recommended .
