Peter Gabriel - Live Blood CD Review
In 2010, Peter Gabriel had the idea to record a cover album of some of his favorite songs. That’s nothing new — artists do that all the time. What was unique about the project was that the covers were to be orchestral versions with no guitars or rock drums. This album was called Scratch My Back and was generally well received. There was to be a companion album entitled, I’ll Scratch Yours where the artists Gabriel covered on his album would return the favor, covering one of his tracks. That never happened, though a few artists came through and their tracks were released as double A-sided singles with Gabriel’s versions of their songs. What happened instead was, in 2011, Gabriel released an album of orchestral versions of his own songs called New Blood. The ensuing tour with the New Blood Orchestra was captured on the new CD, Peter Gabriel - Live Blood.
