Last year Real World Productions released the 25th Anniversary box set celebrating Peter Gabriel’s “Big Time” masterpiece So. The album came out in 1986 and the box set contains the remastered version of the original album, a two disc live performance and most interesting a DNA CD containing the working demos and sessions that eventually created this great work. The box has been a year in the making, which explains the bad math.

I got the excitement of introducing this record to my daughter this past week, and seeing her wonder and expression when I showed her a few of the videos that accompanied it back in the MTV video days. I still think they are pretty cool even by today’s standards, and her curiosity and questions of how they were created are acknowledgement of that.


“Big time, so much larger than life…” enjoy today’s run!
