4 stars I only own the DVD and until today, I only owned the DVD. After taking the ridiculously long test, I go to the library and surprisingly find this awesome live cd in there. I couldn't believe my eyes, but of course I've found everything from Genesis to King's X to Rush to The Flower Kings at the local libraries around here. This is the magical '94 live album of mostly Peter Gabriel's later material which include stuff of SO and of course, SOLSBURY HILL!

I have about 4 live versions of this song and it never seems to get old. The song performed on here is great, perhaps my favorite version of it, with the great production it has. Peter Gabriel, even with some 27 years of singing, has not lost it and still is amazingly awesome and this performance of Solsbury Hill and others show it.

The first disc, which continues Solsbury Hill contains many of his shorter songs, which includes mostly new material (as this cd is). It is filled with the great singing of Peter Gabriel, the bass lines (Yes, not the stick) of Tony Levin and Of course, Mr. David Rhodes' superb guitar playing. He performs an almost flawless performance of these songs and adds the amazing energy that is Gabriel live. The First disc is a fine live disc.

The second disc, which includes 5 songs, including the long, In Your Eyes. This song is perhaps one of the nicest performances I've heard Gabriel in years. After this live performance and this tour, we see Gabriel leaving the music behind and then coming back later on.

This disc is a must have for all Gabriel enthusiasts and this is the embodiment of great Pop/Prog Related Music. Highly Recommended- 4/5
