Peter Gabriel

GabrielPeter Gabriel IV (1982)

 The Rhythm Of The Heat       San Jacinto       Shock The Monkey

The previous LP, Peter Gabriel III (1980) may have been the first record to use the Fairlight (some tracks, and most notably Start, include subtle samples), but the Peter Gabriel IV album , whose main bulk had been composed on a CMI, was full of samples. Shock The Monkey, one of the hits of the year 1982, is a perfect example of the essential role of the Fairlight on this album.
