"F.G.H." : THE WEEKEND MIX
"This album was originally conceived as the third part of an MOR trilogy with Daryl Hall's solo album, "Sacred Songs" and Peter Gabriel II, both of which I produced and to which I contributed. With the non-release of "Sacred Songs" and the delay by dinosaurs of this album, it is impossible to convey the sense which I had intended."
This is the first paragraph of notes written by Robert Fripp for the inner sleeve of his 1979 solo album "Exposure." Since then, Daryl Hall's "Sacred Songs" was not only released, but became a cult classic, as did "Exposure." Oddly enough, the one album to get a normal release, was the Peter Gabriel record, which is arguably his weakest work.
Since many of the players are the same on all three records, I thought I'd put together a vision of what one solid record might have sounded like, using tracks from the trilogy. I've listed only song titles, leaving out the records from which they came, hoping to create the illusion that this really is one record.
