Real World Engineer Gives Updates On Forthcoming Gabriel Albums 

In the May issue of Sound on Sound Magazine, there is a lengthy interview with Real World Engineer Richard Chappell. In the interview, Chappell talks about the recording of Peter Gabriel's Up album at great length as well as references to Ovo and The Long Walk Home soundtrack. The interview is an amazing read and highly recommended, but what is most important about this article is the confirmation of several forthcoming releases.

According to Chappell, he is preparing material for producer Stephen Hague, who is working on the much talked about revamped version of Ovo, with Gabriel singing all of the songs himself (as opposed to the current version which has guest singers on several tracks). This new version of Ovo is said to be released "later this year in the U.S. as a genuine Gabriel solo record." In addition, Chappell mentions the release of a remix album, featuring mixes by Trent Reznor and Tricky revisiting tracks from Up which is reported to also be "in the shops towards the end of the year." If you've picked up some of the European CD singles from Up, you have already gotten a taste of the Tricky and Reznor remixes, but it will be interesting to see what else this set will include when released. Finally, Chappell discusses the release of the tentatively titled I/O, a new studio project which has been discussed at length all over the Internet since Gabriel himself first disclosed the project late last year. According to Chappell, the I/O project (or whatever it is finally called) will be out "some time in 2004" and be primarily based upon the same sessions as the Up album.

Gabriel Announces "Official Bootlegs" From North American 2003 Tour

Peter Gabriel has formally announced that he will be offering soundboard recordings from several stops on the North American 2003 Growing Up Tour as part of the Encore Series, a set of 15 concerts recorded on 30 CDs from almost every night on the 2003 tour. These shows will be available for sale individually or by the complete set as an Internet exclusive release. They shows are pressed on aluminum CDs (not CD-Rs), and feature a slipcase with the date of the show on the outer cardboard sleeve. Each official bootleg will be available for sale approximately three weeks after the performance.

The Music.com, who distributes the Encore Series, states on their FAQ that talks are in the works to offer selected recordings from nights on the first leg of Gabriel's Growing Up Tour from 2002 which offered a very different set list.

Similar efforts have been done in the past with acts like Pearl Jam, who have notoriously changed their set slightly each night. It will be interesting to see how Gabriel breaks up the monotony of this leg of the tour to entice fans to buy every volume in the set. Other artists currently participating in the Encore Series include Duran Duran and The Who.

Update On New Daryl Stuermer/John Calarco Projects

I recently caught up with
Daryl Stuermer's drummer, John Calarco. John reports that work on his own solo album (which also features Daryl Stuermer) should be resuming shortly. The delay has been that Daryl is up-grading his studio and adding pro-tools. In any case, the project is reportedly almost done, and July 1st is the goal to resume the remaining work on the album. In the meantime, John went into the studio on his own and came out with some finished material that he is quite pleased with. More on this project and Daryl's forthcoming jazz album will follow when available. Stay tuned!
