Peter_Gabriel And_Ill_Scratch_Yours CD Brian_Eno Paul_Simon
The companion to the critically acclaimed Scratch My Back and the concluding part of a series of song exchanges in which Peter Gabriel and other leading artists reinterpret each other’s songs.
If Peter’s record Scratch My Back was the call, this was the response, the sound of his songwriting brethren returning the favour. And there are some devilishly fine reinterpretations of Peter’s creations here, whether it’s David Byrne taking I Don’t Remember and transforming it into an irresistible slice of 21st-century dancefloor bliss or Randy Newman laying the irony thick (as only he can) on Big Time.
Other contributors include Paul Simon, Arcade Fire, Brian Eno and Stephin Merritt.
