C is for...

Come Talk to Me...Peter Gabriel, 1992

Trying to recapture part of the soundtrack from my life during the 90's is my theme for the a-z challenge this year

My range of musical interests felt pretty wide and diverse, until I met my husband. Most of the albums he had in his vast collection were either completely new to me, or were only familiar for the mainstream radio hits they contained. 

One of the first concerts we attended together was Peter Gabriel's WOMAD (World of Music and Dance) tour in Saratoga in 1994. He was/is a huge Peter Gabriel fan, and I liked the few songs I knew off the album So, (despite the confusion the song and video Sledgehammer caused). I also knew Solsbury Hill because such knowledge was required in bars my senior year of college.

The weather was beautiful for that outdoor concert, and we saw some cool acts during the day on the various stages. Later, on the main stage, I was introduced (not literally) to Midnight Oil and Live, then truly dazzled by Peter Gabriel. So was joined by Us, and here is my favorite from that album.


  1. quite a creative character. I have no doubt he put on an excellent show. I don't think he suffered fools......

  2. Beds Are Burning by Midnight Oil was playing on the car radio the day my best friend and I were driving to high school graduation practice. :)
