I'm trying to put together all the songs from the Gabriel years that dint make record so i can listen to it on my iphone. i have a list (see below) i think this is the complete list.
But my issue is or question, do any of you know the proper order for these songs. On Archive 1 the order runs back words. There are addition songs such as the Jackson stuff which came out later and 3 tracks from FGTR that didn't make the box set such as One eyed hound.
Id like to have these songs in the proper order kinda like they did with archive 1 running back words if possible, This is the best i've been able to figure the tracks out.
Also if you know of tracks im missing please let me know
These are the 30 Tracks im working with.

Great album by multi-instrumentalist Rick Miller. His back catalogue is extensive. Highly recommended!
Thank you, Noni!
I managed to get hold of 5 albums from a UK prog website but some of the others are stupid prices on Amazon UK or only available from USA. Once you add postage it takes the price over £15 level so I would then have to pay VAT at 20% plus customs import duty. I need a friend in USA or Canada to help.
There are two versions of In The Air Tonight which feature drums throughout the track. The first version was released as a single in North America in 1981 to promote Face Value. The second version being the '88 Remix single released in 1988.
The reason that the 1981 North American single version has drums throughout was at the suggestion of Atlantic Records boss Ahmet Ertegun who felt that American listeners would favour a downbeat/backbeat coming into play earlier into the track.
Once again, I won't do all of them, but rather my top 5:
1. Duke's End (by far the best album ending/song finale ever-basically like a recap of all we just experienced!) 2. Fading Lights (An emotional end to Phil's last Genesis album-hopefully not forever! ) 3. Supper's Ready (A great way to end an album, after such an epic piece) 4. Afterglow (especially when you consider the last three tracks as one, which I do) 5. Los Endos (a perfect ending, just not my favorite)
Honorable mentions would be:
It. (reminds me of an ending theme song to a sitcom, or grand finale piece for a musical)
Fountain of Salmacis (an epic, grand ending to the album)
The weakest ending IMO is Another Record. Honestly that was a horrible way to end an album, and IMO that song should have been a b-side rather than Paperlate or You Might Recall (which are way better IMO). I would've ended Abacab with Like It Or Not. But really that's not much better. It's tough to find a good ending track for such an experimental album really.
