Update on Peter Gabriel's
Scratch My Back Project; Tentatively Scheduled for Spring 2010
According to a post on the official
Peter Gabriel site, an update from John Metcalfe states the following
about Gabriel's long awaited project:
"I have been busy working closely with Peter Gabriel on his Scratch My
Back project. This is a song swap with some of the world's most
legendary artists and is due for release in the Spring. My role has been to
re-interpret the music of the song's he has chosen to cover - quite honerous
as some of the songs are among the best known in the last 40 years. The
album will be acoustic, using only orchestral instruments (no guitars, drums
or world instruments) and range in size from sparse chamber music to a much
fuller orchestral sounds. We recently recorded the orchestra at Air
Lyndhurst studios (George Martin's studio) in London which was an enormous
thrill hearing my arrangements performed by some of the best performers in
the UK. The producer of the album is Canadian legend Bob Ezrin who has
recorded dozens of classic albums including Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' We
performed one of the songs, Paul Simon's 'Boy In The Bubble' at Womad back
in July. I have been working a lot down at Real World studios editing and
mixing and will be continuing with that in the Autumn and it's been a huge
privilege to work with the great man."

Recent Press About Phil
Collins' Health Concerns Fans Worldwide; Phil Sets The Record Straight
There have been a number of slightly misleading articles about Phil Collins'
condition following a medical procedure and how its impacted his physical
ability. On the
official Genesis site, Phil set the record straight by stating,
"There isn't any drama regarding my
'disability' and playing drums.
the last Genesis tour, I dislocated some vertebrae in my upper neck and that
affected my hands. After a successful
operation on my neck, my hands still can't function normally.
Maybe in a year or so it will change, but for
now it is impossible for me to play drums or piano. I
am not in any 'distressed' state, stuff happens in life."

Nick Davis Provides
Details on Forthcoming Genesis Live DVD Box Set
With the release of the 11-disc
Genesis Live 1973-2007 (CD+DVD) Box
Set coming this month, Nick Davis has given some information on what appears
to be the final box set in the five box set series. The final box set, which
will follow the release of the Live audio box set, will showcase
Genesis live video performances from 1982 through 2007. According to Davis's
comments on the
official Genesis site's forum, the video box will include:
1. The Three Sides Live video - includes true 5.1 surround sound in Dolby
Digital and DTS - except for "In The Cage" which is in artificial surround
since the audio master tape was lost. Also includes bonus audio 5.1 of all
songs from Three Sides Live that are not performed in their entirety on the
video (note: "In The Cage" is not available in true surround as a bonus
track). Never before on DVD!
2. The Mama Tour video - Includes true 5.1 surround sound in Dolby Digital
and DTS. Never before on DVD!
3. Live at Wembley
video - Reportedly identical to the prior DVD issue.
Includes true 5.1 surround in Dolby Digital and DTS.
4. The Way We Walk video
- Offers a new DTS 5.1 audio option in addition to the Dolby Digital
5.1 audio track on the original DVD pressing. This version, however, loses
the multi-camera angle option available on the older pressing.
5. Bonus DVD Disc
- Supposedly, this disc contains rare video footage. Nick Davis confirms
that there is some sort of documentary included, but beyond that we have no
information about the extras at this time. Details of a pre-order will
hopefully follow soon after the release of the Genesis Live 1973-2007
box this month. Stay tuned for details!
