We've had only limited access to the full set so far, down under - although I'm only beginning to search as much as I can for this, so I may not have found all that I can yet. (yes, another life long fan, from my teen years in the early 70s).
but this project has already proven incredibly meaningful and special. A bit of background as to why:
My own work, professionally, has always been about building a world for next generations, many yet to come.
And I have attended every Womadelaide bar one - with my kids. with varying degrees of them getting into it.
In the past few years my teen-age daughter (the oldest) has really gotten into 'her music', indie. She and I have very much come to know each other more and more though sharing our tastes - her calling mine 'the classics', of course.
And now PG has done this. not only made the shared appreciation of thoughtful music public, but literally done it with songs that were already of deep meaning to my own daughter and loved by me, this work solidifying more deeply (if that were possible) our connection.
Just two words express all I can say: Thank you
Respecting Elders and next generations, something of a lesson for all of us I think (and I am not exactly known for being all that respectful.)

Vey nice,thank you for share with us,Professor J.
I agree with Duddy,i add that it is wonderful to see how Music of Peter "produces" in all of us.
I think the innovation of Gabriel is this too: a Music that has no time,where you can always discover something new,fresh,fashinating for the younger generations and for all of us.
