Shaking The Tree: Sixteen Golden Greats: Before The Fall When this 1991 compilation came out, no one would have believed that, as of 2015, only two Peter Gabriel CDs of new songs would have been issued since its release. Is it writer's block, withdrawal, or something else? No one has a satisfactory explanation. Now, to the business at hand. Should you buy this or the newer Hit 2 CD comp? Almost all of the tracks on this CD are on Hit. On the other hand, Hit is padded with a lot of rare and movie soundtrack songs. I vote for Shaking The Tree. It is almost 80 minutes of prime Gabriel. Look at the highlights that are favorites of mine. You get PG's first solo hit, Solsbury Hill; the creepy assassin's manifesto Family Snapshot; the mournful Mercy Street; the death song of an Indian medicine man, San Jacinto; the apocalyptic Red Rain; the stardom send-up Big Time; and finally, the classic protest anthem Biko. The only number that doesn't really fit is Zaar from the Passion soundtrack. It should be heard as part of that project. I give this set 4 ½ stars.
