Peter Gabriel - Big TimeThe official Big Time video. Directed by Stephen R. Johnson. The fourth single to be taken from Peter's fifth studio album. The album was his first one to have a proper title and So was a watershed release in his career.

Aside from some intriguing collaborations – with Laurie Anderson on This Is The Picture, Kate Bush on Don’t Give Up and Youssou N’Dour on In Your Eyes – it was the unity of singer, band and producer that made So such a crucial record in the Gabriel canon. # http://petergabriel.com Hi There!
