http://www.lileighwhite.com/ A serious, in-depth examination of the FULL vocal re-tracking of "Back in NYC" - for 1998's Archive 1. I both compare it with the original recording (done live off the soundboard of LA's Shrine Aud. in Jan 1975) and go more deeply into the reasons behind this Gabriel-based concept leading Genesis to experiment with American Pop Culture and its Proto-Punk era. Also, covered is the underlying philosophical underpinnings of Carl Jung and the Tibetan Book of the Dead (a Gabriel fav read at the time of the writing of the Lamb) and how this is a guide for the surreal story's protagonist - Rael.
Many thanks to Genesis' Engineering Guru - Nick Davis and guitarist Steve Hackett for sharing their informative insights into this historic restoration with me ... so that I could share it with you - the devoted early-Genesis fan.
*Headphones or earbuds highly recommended for this one!*
