Saw Peter for first time supporting Pendragon at Morecambe. Wow!
Why has the system let Peter down and why has someone who should have stumbled upon his incredible music years ago not done so?
We MUST find a system which promotes great acts like Peter Jones at gigs we all go to.Id pay a quid extra to fund some promotional system.
Can call it “Selling prog for a pound”.
How many other great bands do I not know about?

Did I say that I don't like cover versions? Well, yes, it's essentially true, but Pete Jones is one of the few exceptions. First of all, his voice is plain amazing, and I'm thankful that he doesn't try too hard to imitate Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins. Second, the way he reinterprets the old "Genesis" classics is so touching and full of life that it's real hard not to go for it. Third, his cover versions deviate notably from the originals, which is an important property that renders a remake interesting in the first place - a fact overlooked by many tribute projects. Take "Invisible Touch", for instance... that's how this song should have been from the beginning. In fact, his version sounds more like "Genesis" than the original. And finally, this selection contains a couple of my own very very favorite favorites - i.e. "Undertow", "Afterglow", and "Seven Stones". Pete Jones' versions really are on par with the magic of the "Genesis" recordings in every respect. Sven B. Schreiber
