7 more Genesis "unplugged and in one person" covers by this extremely gifted musician. This time more "Collins-era" stuff than on "Selling England for a Pound", but he nails the vocals regardless of who sang the original. Apropos original, listen to what he did to "Invisible Touch" (and don't focus on the vocals ;-) ).
Favorite track: Harold The Barrel (live).
Peter Jones is a true fan of Genesis (all eras), and shows his love for the music of the band through his sensitive and emotional covers of their songs. His original progressive music under the name Tiger Moth Tales is essential listening too!
Favorite track: Seven Stones.
After the enthusiasm for the last little collection of Genesis covers, I've decided to put out a few more. With 'Selling England For A Pound' I had the idea to give the proceeds to Guide Dogs, a charity which is very close to my heart. So I'm doing the same thing with the proceeds from this release so please dig deep if you like what you hear.
As with the first collection, a couple of tracks on this album were recorded for a feature on my radio show Tales From The Tiger Moth. 'Harold The Barrel' was taken from a live performance at the CCA in Glasgow last December. The rest of the tracks were recorded in my studio. To make this collection a bit different, I wanted to do my own thing with some of the tracks, so you'll notice that tracks like Follow You Follow Me, Seven Stones and Invisible Touch have a bit of a twist to them.
I hope you enjoy these new versions of classic favourites and I'd like to thank you on behalf of the Guide Dogs Charity for your contributions to such a great cause.
