There are also two bonus features on the Live in Athens disc: An interview of Peter Gabriel by Paul Gambaccini, which reveals him to be a charming, self-effacing and articulate subject; and a 5.1 surround mix of the "Sledgehammer" video." But these are just icing on the cake; fans have been waiting to hear the show behind PoV for nearly 25 years; now, finally, not only do they get Gabriel's entire show, uncut and in sequence, but the opening act as well, which makes their return for Gabriel's encores all the more compelling. Live in Athens 1987 captures an artist on the cusp of greater success, and few artists have deserved it as much as Peter Gabriel—who has, since then, invested much of his time, energy and money in bringing music from other cultures to the world. Live in Athens 1987 is where it all begins.
