I have fond memories of seeing Hackett a few times in concert in the late 1970s, back when he would perform some of the tracks off the PDT album.
I was recently reading where the song "Please Don't Touch" was offered to Genesis while Steve was still in the band, during the recording of the Wind and Wuthering album, but it was rejected. The track was written as a variation on the main theme heard in "Unquiet Slumbers for the Sleepers," which also appears on WAW. The rejection of the song by the rest of the band apparently was the reason that Steve decided to leave Genesis.
I always loved how each song was just right for the guest vocalists he had invited to be on the album; ie, Steve Walsh of the band Kansas, Randy Crawford and Richie Havens.
Great choice to play this album at the beginning of 2016, almost 40 years after its release. It does have a wintery feel.
Try googling "new order tfi new year" there are at least 3 videos on youtube that appear in that search, but are blocked in MY country by Channel 4 (the TV carrier it was on) for copyright reasons. Even if they don't work, one may slip through the net at some point.
Blasting, billowing, bursting forth, With the power of ten billion butterfly sneezes.
Highly recommended for those who don't have all the albums, or who know little about the band and wish to find out more.
It's actually a refreshing listen, to hear Neal Morse as he was in the mid 90s with SB. We've gotten so used to his solo efforts and Transatlantic offerings that we've almost forgotten what he sounded like with the Beard; at least I had.
