My 30 odd years with Peter Gabriel’s “So”

posted in: Blog, Records | 0


I was planning to see a movie tonight, but before that  I was browsing my feed on Facebook,now I ‘am a member of several Facebook groups with main interests as music or records. On one of these groups I stumbled upon a documentary of how Peter made “So” back in 1986.

I’ve seen this documentary before and I always smile when I hear that he wanted Dolly Parton to sing with him on “Don’t give up”. I also marvel at the amazing job that Daniel Lanois did as a producer on this record.

Through these 30 years or so I’ve heard this record countless times. Every time ( in every one of these years) I appreciate it as much as the the first time, but in a slightly different way.
