Daniel Lanois claims in Uncut Magazine's review of the So box set that he and David Rhodes wrote the songs with Peter "as a tight trio". But the CD inlay notes credit Peter alone for all the songs except That Voice Again (with David) and This is the Picture (with Laurie Anderson). Is Daniel being a bit cheeky here, or is there some substance to his claim? Does anyone know?

On my guess (!) Peter wrote song-essentials and the three worked them out.
Once in the Video "All about US" you could get an impression of that in watching Daniel/David/Peter doing COME TALK TO ME in that way.
David is credited only for lyrics.

Good question Hans. Does anybody know?

Helpful answer, Thom. Sounds plausible to me. Must see if I can find that on Youtube!

it's the same recording-session I've meant, but not the same clip
never seen this snippet before - from which movie does it come from?

Doesn't look like writing to me, just working out demos, feel or basic tracks.

i discovered the "Talk to Me"-snippets on YT. Never seen them before also. One of the uploaders "abcforall" runs a Daniel Lanois-fan-channel. The clips are different from the good old "All about Us"-VHS.
I agree with One of Us.
I think Lanois wants to point out his role in the recording of "So".
in the end: . . . .ALL tracks written by PG (except Rhodes and L. Anderson).
