When Peter released So i read that "he has in the shelf" a rythm and blues project for an album.
It would be great!!!
I love the happy marriage between PETER and Percussions, world rythms and all but it would be great just listening to a soul or blues album, with brass and minimal textures. Ha, well, im not going to tell Peter how to do it!!
Examples: the great "waiting for the big one".
Does anyone know something about this? :-]

I would suggest that tunes like "Steam", "Washing of the Water" "lovetown" and "Sky Blue" were all from this "shelf" originally. WHo knows how much they changed before the release, but Peter describes "I Grieve" as having a phil spector arrangement on it and for the life of me I cannot figure that one out at all.

Well Caste, I think Motown songs are more pop-y than bluesy. Most of the time. Like the usual sugary 60s music only sung by black singers. Okay, there are exeptions, but yeah, you get the idea.
But I like the idea of a bluesy PG album. But I'd like if he wrote his own blues songs, and not cover old songs. Because, well, we alredy have a cover album.

P.S.: The Play! The Videos version of Washing Of The Water is just bluesy excellence. I like it even better than the original Us version.

P.P.S: It's one of the songs that sound better with his older more mature voice. Excellent recording, imho.

we all know that one of Peter´s favourite singers is the great Marvin Gaye, Chubby Checker (sorry the spelling), motown artists, so, it isnt such a surprise to listen to a son of Stevie Wonder´s Superstition which i really think Peter listened and liked. The result: sledgehammer. We also know that Peter likes to take things from here, from there, anywhere, Im not sure but he once mentioned that Picasso did the same.
