Recorded in Europe in the summer of 2004, Peter Gabriel's Still Growing Up - Live and Unwrapped is a follow-up to 2003's Growing Up Live. The idea this time was to capture Gabriel and his band performing a variety of songs not heard on the earlier tour, with the gigs taking place in what he describes as "all sorts of smaller venues," where "we get up onstage with minimal lights and simply play the music." Of course, "smaller" is a matter of perspective; the town squares, outdoor amphitheatres, and other sites in Belgium, England, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and France where the band appeared are still plenty big enough to hold several thousand people, and the production values are hardly what you'd call spartan. But whatever their dimensions, the shows yielded some extraordinarily powerful performances. After a haunting "The Feeling Begins" (a track from Gabriel's Passion, the score for Martin Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ), played solo on the Armenian doudouk, Gabriel and company take the stage and almost immediately forge a palpable bond with their audience. Indeed, what we are witnessing is as much a tribal rite as a concert, with the febrile, hypnotic intensity of the music matched by the crowd's chanted responses on such tunes as "Solsbury Hill," "Sledgehammer," and "Biko" (along with the latter, songs not heard on the previous DVD include "San Jacinto," "White Ashes," "The Tower that Ate People," and "Games Without Frontiers"; there's also a wonderful performance of "In Your Eyes" among the bonus tracks). Overall, this is a moving experience that viewers with sophisticated home systems will delight in sharing. The centerpiece of the set's second disc is Unwrapped, an approximately 70-minute "band on the road" documentary that would have been a standard variation of the form were it not for Gabriel's strong visual sense; check out the cool lighting and film projection effects used during the interviews with the artist. --Sam Graham

Product Description

November 2003 saw the release of Peter Gabriel's Growing Up Live DVD , chronicling his world tour, which was celebrated for its spectacular theatrics. Still Growing Up Live & Unwrapped brings Peter Gabriel together again with the award-winning director Hamish Hamilton, capturing his performances in all sorts of smaller and more intimate venues around Europe for the Live version of the DVD. For the "Unwrapped" version (Disc 2), which explores the world behind the songs, Anna Gabriel took over the director's chair with the collaboration of Hamish Hamilton. A simpler approach suggested a different set list, and Peter, Hamish, and Anna were determined that this should be filmed in a very different style. It shows Peter Gabriel as many of his fans love to see him, just playing his music.

It is real live footage!
all love based paths lead to God
PG is definitely adopting the video market this round, but I'm really disappointed with this offering.

The "documentary" on disc 2 is just a question mark.

God, how I hate to give Gabriel only 4 STARS!! Well, here goes. I couldn't decide whether or not to buy this in the store when I first saw it, but I just received it as an early Christmas present. This 2 Disc set contains scattered performances from the 2004 European Tour, STILL GROWING UP LIVE. The venues for each song are different and each performance has a different feel. Some are small venues while others are bigger arena venues. Some performances are a little lackluster while others are genuinely breathtaking and contain that religious awe which confirms why you're a Gabriel fanatic in the first place. As everyone knows, "Genesis is Great, but Peter Gabriel is God." Gabriel only tours about once every ten years, so any time you can find a LIVE performance on DVD it's usually a must have. Everytime he comes to L.A. I spend at least 250.00 to 500.00 dollars to see him up-close. He's the only artist I'll spend that kind of money on. And if you're a Gabriel fanatic you know what I'm talking about. I actually got to touch him once when I was in the front row at The Forum in L.A. Yay! This was in the 80's when he would do LAY YOUR HANDS ON ME Live. SO (pun intended), is this worth having for the fanatic? The answer is a resounding YES.

The concert footage on Disc One is about 90 minutes long and contains seven new LIVE performances including:

COME TALK TO ME

SAN JACINTO

WHITE ASHES

THE TOWER THAT ATE PEOPLE

BURN YOU UP, BURN YOU DOWN

GAMES WITHOUT FRONTIERS

and BIKO.

Personally I think SECRET WORLD LIVE contains the superior version of COME TALK TO ME. And, SAN JACINTO for that matter.

b4 i say what i'm gonna say, i'd like to state for the record that i'm a big PG fan...have been since a teen. also, i attended both growing up live performances...what a treat!

of course what matters is content. disc 1 is live stuff. the performances, as expected, are great. disc 2 is what i can't figure out. disc 2 is the live performances on disc 1, but with a blend of documentary footage, interviews and way too much playing with mirrors! [it was kinda cool at first but became hokey fast] PG's daughter is responsible for the second disc so perhaps dad was a little less focused on quality control. if you have 'growing up live' & 'a family portrait,' you don't need this set, unless your a hard-core fan like myself. also, not that this is important, but the packaging was not nearly as visually appealing as the first growing up live and play dvd's. not much to look at.

in summary, i would have much more preferred him directing his energy to finish up I/O [the next album] or an in depth road documentary [a family portrait, part II?] without all the mirror effects. Gabriel is much too dignified for that.

Being a devoted PG fan, I have the Growing Up Live DVD, as well as Family Portrait, the documentary made by Anna Gabriel about that tour. I also saw the Growing Up and Still Growing Up tours four times during their three year journey around the world.

So, when I first heard about this new release, I couldn't imagine what more there was to show that I hadn't already seen. I was wrong.

Disc one is a fairly straightforward (for PG) rendering of the last leg of the tour, using footage from three performances to show what the summer 2004 festival shows looked like. Again, being PG, the soundtrack sounds fantastic and has doutbless been overdubbed, to provide the viewer/listener with the best quality possible.

Disc two is slightly different. We see some of the same footage from disc one, but with additional interview segments - most from PG himself, but there's also some commentary from the members of the band who spent so much time working on this music with him. It's interesting to see the material illuminated in such a way.

The real gem of disc two, however, is in the extras. We are supplied with footage shot of the band at Real World during the rehearsal period back in 2002. This footage includes familiar tour offerings such as Darkness and Growing Up, in slightly rougher formats than were played on the road. Also included is No Way Out - a song that was a standout on PG's last studio album, Up, but was played only a handful of times in concert. Seeing and hearing it rendered here, you'll wonder why it wasn't given more stage time.

Somehow, PG (and his daughter, Anna) have managed to illuminate yet a little more of the world of his music with this DVD. I highly recommend picking it up, even if you have Growing Up Live - this shines light into some slightly different spaces.

Enjoy! :o)

It may seem like overkill since it follows 2003's Growing Up DVD, but the latest live Gabriel release is a more than worthy addition that expands on the first and complements it. It's basically for existing fans, but SGU is a treat for anyone who wants more Peter. The guy's still got one of the greatest song catalogues around (is there anyone who doesn't love "In Your Eyes" or "Secret World"?) and he puts on a stage show like nobody else.

Disc 1 is the reason you want this set. Amid the usual greatness of a PG show it's got quite a few rarities & resurrected songs: "The Feeling Begins" (a doudouk solo without the percussion), "San Jacinto," "Games Without Frontiers," "Biko," "The Tower That Ate People," and the infectious "Burn You Up Burn You Down." The biggest treat is probably "White Ashes," transformed into a spine-tinglingly creepy electronic version that now has lyrics. The main downside is that it's a montage from several shows & venues rather than one performance. One minute they're in a small town square, the next moment it's a big ampitheater - it really kills that You-Are-There feeling that help make his earlier live videos such a treat.

Disc 2 basically repeats almost the same performances from disc 1, but intercut with different visuals and sporadic little monologues from Peter (and briefly the band) on all kinds of background things. What does he think about the human capacity for art? What are some of the songs about? How does technology influence music and vice-versa? This part doesn't beg for repeated viewings; it might have worked better as a separate documentary or even just a commentary track over the original video itself. Still, it's fascinating stuff (the visuals are nicely creative) and it makes the set more than 'just' another performance DVD.
