Hear The Discussion
Last week on All Songs Considered we talked about how much we love Peter Gabriel's classic album, So, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a special deluxe edition and live tour. This week, Peter Gabriel himself joins us to share some of the music he loves by other artists, including early music by The Beatles, soul legend Otis Redding and the inimitable jazz singer Nina Simone. We also check out that deluxe version of So (out Oct. 22), which includes remastered versions of the original songs, a concert DVD and some amazing outtakes, or what Gabriel calls the "DNA" of his songs.
