Peter Gabriel - Shaking The Tree (Twelve Golden Greats) mp3 album
Shaking the Tree" is one of my few exceptions to that rule. Well it's not exactly a rule, more like a guideline really. So there is the completist challenge. More importantly, the 16 tracks give the novice Peter Gabriel listener an idea of the vast scope of his work. Covering a range of topics from personal emotions to social awareness, Gabriel uses every line to his advantage. For the veteran Gabriel fan, "Shaking the Tree" can give one the opportunity to become re-acquainted with his lyrical artistry. Sometimes sharp, almost bitter tales of isolation and alienation (Family Snapshot, Don't Give Up) are counter-balanced with tongue-in-cheek humor (Sledgehammer, Big Time).

Peter Gabriel's, entitled Shaking the Tree: Sixteen Golden Greats, arrived in December of 1990, as he was toiling away at the follow-up to his smash So, which was four years old at that point. As greatest-hits albums go, it's pretty good, containing all the hits, plus an effective re-recording of "Here Comes the Flood" and a good new song in the form of the title track .

Released 19th November, 1990. Released in 1990, Shaking The Tree is a career-spanning overview of Peter’s solo years (up to that point) from the first self-titled album of 1977 up to the 1989 Passion soundtrack with a few curiosities and rarities to grab the ear of the completist. The compilation’s title track, a playful duet between Peter and Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour, hadn’t previously appeared on a Gabriel album, just on Youssou’s The Lion album. Here it reappears, albeit it with a new vocal from Peter. Shaking The Tree’ was somewhat ironically called ‘Sixteen Golden Greats’. Normally people do their greatest hits, but it would be more like greatest ‘hit’ for me. It gave me the chance to do another version of ‘Here Comes The Flood’.
