Peter Gabriel - Before The Flood "Early Demos" (1975)


Empezaremos la semana, y vamos primero con algo que teníamos para la semana pasada pero que quedó afuera por la gran cantidad de cosas que publicamos. El primer demo de Peter solista, encarando la onda que definiía en sus discos posteriores. Otra exclusividad del blog cabezón. Otro gran aporte del Mago Alberto para que sean un poquito más felices.

Artista: Peter Gabriel
Álbum: Before The Flood "Early Demos"
Año: 1975
Género: Rock / Experimental
Nacionalidad: Inglaterra


Lista de Temas:
01. Howling At The Moon
02. Excuse Me
03. Funny Man
04. No More Mickey
05. Get The Guns
06. Here Comes The Flood
07. God Knows
08. Strawberry Fields Forever (Bonus Track)

Alineación:
- Peter Gabriel / Voz y Piano
Sinfonica de Londres

No creo que haya mucho que contar más allá de lo que nos cuenta el Mago Alberto, que es quien comparte esto...


Cuando Peter Gabriel decide dejar Genesis luego de aquella monumental obra The Lamb, el mundillo de la música quedo perplejo y fueron muchos los que declararon el final de Genesis y otros se quedaron con la incertidumbre de "que sera ahora de Gabriel y de Genesis".
Entonces comenzó otra historia, y el comienzo de esa historia quizás sea este demo que fue grabado por PG, en sus estudios domésticos, con la sola prsencia sonora del piano y la voz de Peter.
Una verdadera rareza que algunos fanas de Genesis y Gabriel ya conocen, pero que hoy aparece en flac para que algunos den vuelta carnero en la cama y otros se rasgen las vestiduras.
De estos demos, algunos se transformaron en parte del primer disco de PG y otros quedaron solamente en este registro, la versión de "Here comes the flood" es sencillamente de antología.
Para los antropólogos del rock esta rareza sera muy apreciada, si los fans tipo CalleNep no escucharon estos registros estas canciones son por demás gratificantes y seguramente estarán muy agradecidos.
Quizás con el tiempo volvamos con un sinfin de demos y rarezas, o sea que esto es solo un anticipo.
Va con un bonus track que es la versión con la Sinfonica de Londres de "Strawberry fields forever" de The Beatles, esta versión es distinta de la que circula aún teniendo en cuenta los Rare Tracks de PG. por cuanto esa versión circulante es ripiada de vinilo y esta no.
Only for fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! más que nunca.

Y vamos con algunos comentarios en inglés, que nunca faltan para éstas cosas:

These are supposed to be very early demos recorded for Car album (1976, Atco - Atco being Atlantic, a Warner subsidiary label). These demos are raw; they may have been done in Gabriel's home studio or possibly at Fuse Music, England, which somehow was connected with Warner Brothers. Most of the songs are acoustic piano with a few accompanying support tracks and Peter singing -- which makes me believe this was from Peter's home studio efforts.
The story is that this demos tape was found in a warehouse cleaning closet in white tape box marked: 7 1/2ips 1/4 trk stereo Gabriel/Hall Fuse Music. Unfortunately, the tape box had become water-soaked and the bown-oxide tape was rotting. The tape had some warbley spots from the neglect and also quite a lot of tape hiss and lost tone. The tape has been processed to improve the sound. "Get the Guns" appears to have been recorded badly or with misaligned heads so it could not be improved as much as the other songs. On the whole there is a tiny bit of tape hiss but no more than you'd expect from such an old artifact. There is also one small glitch from a later cassette-to-cd transfer in "Excuse Me".
Along with tape, the warehouse box also contained the lead sheets, listing the composers as "Peter Gabriel and Tony Hall" and marked with a stamp from Fuse Music, England. They were lead melody transcriptions for copyright purposes, not hand-written by Gabriel or anything.
I later heard that the Fuse Music building burned down and took a whole lot of master tapes with it, and that this reel is quite probably the only surviving record of these demos.
Enjoy this very raw, very rare and very simple glimpse into the early creative process of Peter Gabriel.

These are evidently very early demos recorded for "car" (1976, Atco - Atco being Atlantic, a Warner subsidiary label). They are extremely raw; they may have been done in Gabriel's home studio. Most are acoustic piano with a few accompanying support tracks and Peter singing. The songs come from a white tape box marked: 7 1/2ips 1/4 trk stereo Gabriel/Hall Fuse Music The lead sheets had the composer's names given as "Peter Gabriel and Tony Hall" and were marked with a stamp from Fuse Music, England; they were merely lead melody transcriptions for copyright purposes, not hand-written by Gabriel or anything. At that time, the best research i could come up with was that Fuse was somehow connected to Warner Bros (maybe like Sire was, but English; a sub-distribution deal?)... I later heard that the Fuse Music building burned down and took a whole lot of master tapes with it, and that this reel is quite probably the only surviving record of these demos. This brown-oxide tape was discovered rotting in a water-soaked box shoved into a cleaning closet, along with the lead sheets, in a cavernous and seldom-used warehouse. It was lost/forgotten/abandoned. The tape had some warbley spots from the neglect and also quite a lot of tape hiss and lost tone. I processed the material for several weeks before I was satisfied as to the quality, although "Get the Guns" was problemmatic to begin with; the Master appears to have been recorded badly or with misaligned heads. On the whole there is a tiny bit of tape hiss but no more than you'd expect from such a "live" environment. There is unfortunately one small glitch from a later cassette-to-cd transfer in "Excuse Me" ("Looking for Lost Angeleeeeee") so don't think it's your file or player Enjoy this very raw and simple glimpse into the creative process of Peter Gabriel.

These are the (primarily) piano demos that Gabriel recorded shortly after he departed Genesis, and before he made his initial return to the studio, with Phil Collins, Anthony Phillips and Mike Rutherford as a comfortable (but ultimately unsatisfying) safety net. And, it must be said, those are probably the demos most listeners would like to hear.
These raw home recordings, however, are equally rewarding, as we hear Gabriel getting to grips not only with a couple of songs that would eventually make it onto his solo debut album ("Excuse Me," sans barbershop harmonies, and "Here Comes The Flood"), but a clutch more that have remained in the vault ever since.
Gabriel was writing at the time with Martin Hall, a songwriter whom he'd known since they both contributed to the Colin Scott album back in 1971; how sad it is that the partnership was ultimately doomed to obscurity.
True, the knockabout "No More Mickey" was offered to Charisma as a single during 1975, but nothing ever came of that; true, too, singer Alan Ross recorded a version of "Get The Guns," before Gabriel himself disemboweled it for the backbone of "Down The Dolce Vita." But who among us has even heard of Ross? And that still leaves "Howling At The Moon," "Funny Man" and "God Knows" to complete a collection that sounds more like demos for his second album, than the precursor of his first.
One final song belongs on this disc, but does not appear -- "You'll Never Know," a Gabriel-Hall composition that did make it onto vinyl, courtesy of comedian Charlie Drake (plus a supporting cast that included Sandy Denny and Robert Fripp). The finished version is as weird as anything Gabriel has ever put his name towards. One can only imagine what the demo sounded like. - Dave Thompson
