Peter Gabriel: Peter Gabriel (Charisma) *****

Barbara Charone, Sounds, 19 February 1977

DEAR PETER, Hangin' round Times Square just the other day when some strange sounds caught my ear. Bundled up my leather jacket, tucked a can of aerosol paint in my pocket and headed into a record store on Broadway and 48th. At first I thought the album was you but now I'm not too sure. It was weird. Sorta deja vu. But kinda unexpected too. Just weird.
