Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins (both natural leaders of the band called Genesis -different approaches and styles-yet quite complimentary when in sync) Notice how they work together on these two different live versions of the same track. Please keep an eye on the histrionic antics of Mr. Gabriel versus the football player charm of Phil Collins. Notice, if you dare, that Gabriel embodied the spirit and inner life of each track while Collins was the carnival barker and erstwhile drummer. Imagine if they could have found a way to work together a bit longer. Peter Gabriel was better off on his own based on the prevailing direction of Genesis under the leadership of the remaining 3 and the artistic visionary and shamanistic creative Peter Gabriel had become-(listen closely to Solsbury Hill).

Having left Genesis the previous summer, Peter’s first solo album arrived in February 1977. He was 26. With legendary producer Bob Ezrin taking charge the intention was to make something more direct and tougher than what had come before. Solsbury Hill was the first single to be taken from the album, though the video you see here was created much later “just messing around at Real World with a painter friend of mine Graham Dean.” says Peter.
