3 stars 3,5 stars really!!!

Recorded after the fourth album and logically concentrating a good deal of attention towards that album (Which suits me since it is my fave) , this double live album is really an excellent introduction to Peter Gabriel's early solo career. It gives you an excellent overview of his four studio album forgetting none and choosing not only the better (IMHO) tracks (San Jacinto , Rythm Of The Heat ) as well as its more commercial side (Solsburry , Shock The Monkey , I Don't Remember) and actually adding up a bit to some tracks. Too bad that my favorite two tracks Moribund and Exposure (they are more delicate , ambient and "proggy" but also maybe more difficult to produce on stage) are absent .

His finale is poignant as he sings out his tribute to Stephen Biko! A fitting intro to The Gabe's world.
