Peter Gabriel - Courage (Radio Edit..unreleased)

This is I guess a track that was recorded during the So period, and a version of it was included on the So Boxed Set, but not THIS version. And Peter Gabriel himself shared it on Youtube along with his email list back in November (not new NEWS exactly).

"Whilst the original version remains exclusive to the So Box Set, this new 'finished' version is mixed by Tchad Blake and has new overdubs from Peter and David Rhodes (guitar). It retains all the spirit and charm of the original version but is now heard through the filter of experience that is the intervening 25 years.

"When So drew to a close I didn't feel the song was delivering in the way I had hoped, so decided not to include it. When we were reviewing all the material from that time, we wanted to take a fresh look at it and get it finished. I always liked the track and very much enjoyed the playing on it, especially the energy of the drums" - Peter Gabriel "
