The “Spot The Pigeon” EP was Genesis’ last studio release with their amazing guitar player Steve Hackett. Soon after, they became superstars. The 3 songs on “Spot The Pigeon” was released in 1978 but were leftovers from their classic “Wind & Wuthering” LP.
The filming of this video can be summed up as “extension cord management”. I filmed this on father’s day 2011 with my darling little angel fairies (who can be seen in other TheDailyVinyl videos). They “helped” me keep the cords from getting stuck around corners and such.
If you haven’t picked up the remastered box sets, here’s my affiliate links to them on Amazon. (by using these links I get, like 57 cents!!! One day I hope to earn enough to buy a 45! Please help me live my dream!) Each box set contains both the Audio/Stereo CD, plus a 5:1 remastered DVD with incredible bonus content (live shows, all the music videos, and brand new documentaries). Most also include a bonus CD w/ b-sides & EPs.
The Classic Peter Gabriel era CDs (The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Selling England By The Pound, etc):
