MAK,I think "Here comes the Flood" that you have posted is "accompanied" by an excellent Robert Fripp,but the final guitar solo is played by an excellent too Steve Hunter
Cimber,good informations,and. . . .yes!! "Why Dont' We"? Fan-tas-tic song,with Peter that plays flute. . .

7. "Here comes the Flood" (alternative piano-version)
8. "On the Air" (yes, before it appeared on the 2nd LP)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Dolce Vita sounds interesting with Steve Hunter - never thought about it.

On stage Peter wear a simple suit.
He wins the odience with the power of Music,voice and movement.
No slides,colored lights,masks.
(. . . just only the jacket of Rael for some "BIS").
A new beginning. . . .

We do not forget the beautiful "Here comes the Flood"
I LOVE the version of "HIT" 2003. . . Peter with piano,i do not why does he give so much emotion???
. . . . because he IS Peter Gabriel,i think . . . :-] . . . !!!

yes surely Peter, the "master of ceremony and visual music" was trying to stand away from all the Genesis-image, that people had, BUT - I am speaking of "light-effects" - he was using a flashlight to light up his face from down, which had a scary effect in the dark.
The piano and vocal-version on "HIT" was recorded for "Shaking the Tree" in 1989 - together with the title-track. I remember listening to this version on a PG-special on the radio - yes, listening to this version for the 1st time had an amazing impression on me - I was moved.
Peter played this version (piano plus vocal) already in 1977 and also for the Kate Bush-TV-special in 1979 (toghether with "Another Day".
The song was covered by US-actor Bette Midler in 1982, I think.

Thank you for precious informations Cimber!
. . . . and thanks for your passage underlined about "light-effects",right!
You know,in my humble opinion, the success of "special-effects" on stage (could be lights,masks or anything else. . .) comes only from the personality of Peter. .
