Hammill, Peter - PNO GTR VOX : Live Performances 2 x CDs

SKU 28-Fie 9134
Brand new, double disc of solo performances. One disc of Peter on piano and voice (entitled "What if I forgot my guitar?") and one disc of guitar and vocals (entitled "What if there were no piano?").

"A curious side effect of the reunion and subsequent onward career of VdGG was that I've became particularly fired up about doing solo shows when away from the group trail. Over a series of tours I've reconnected with songs old and new in the ultimate stripped-down format of piano and voice, guitar and voice. This double CD, taken from concerts in Japan and the UK in 2010 is the first solo live recording since 1999's "Typical". One CD is of piano songs, the other guitar ones, following a matrix first laid down in the Tokyo shows. As ever, the songs are taken from the length and breadth of my career; of course, the performances have changed markedly over the years. This, though, is, I believe, as strong a statement as can be made of how I've been performing in what I consider to be something of a purple patch. Some songs from the original setlists have been removed in order to keep the length down to around 70 minutes. In an effort to make each CD as "show" like as possible, one song runs into another, linked by applause. I hope that this adds to a feeling of intimacy with the performances. Pno, Gtr, Vox will be the definitive solo statement for the foreseeable future."-Peter Hammill
