Peter Gabriel gives more blood with new Live Blood 2CD release

Peter Gabriel / Live Blood 2CDThe blood is still pumping as Peter Gabriel releases Live Blood, a 2CD collection of live tracks recorded at The HMV Hammersmith Apollo over two nights in March 2011, with his New Blood Orchestra “no guitars, no drum kit”.

For collectors these Blood releases take some keeping up with. First we had the Scratch My Back covers project in 2010 which started Gabriel’s whole interest in the minimalist production and arrangements. That was followed last year by New Blood – his attempt to reinterpret his own material in the same way. New Blood was offered as a single CD, and a special edition 2CD with instrumentals on the second disc. At the same time a DVD, Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray of New Blood Live In London was issued. On top of all this was a New Blood deluxe edition with hard back book which came without the instrumentals on the 2CD but with single ‘highlight’ disc from the New Blood Live In London concerts (this was exclusive at the time).


This Live Blood 2CD is release is effectively the audio from the New Blood Live In London concerts in full. The packaging and artwork is consistent to what has come before and the music is available as MP3 and Apple Lossless downloads as well as the physical set.

    I wish he’d just release a studio album of new material.
