As a callow youth I had a girlfriend who would repeatedly play Face Value by Phil Collins at the start of moments of passion.

It was a bit of an ego deflator to have to rely on a short balding man who played drums to get the best out of the moment but I grew to love him as the summer went on.

Collins graciously acknowledged the creative drum programming work of Peter Gabriel as a big influence on the album.

Many thanks to Wilburson for another spiritually uplifting vocal so beautifully sung.

On 1 February 2002 Daniel Pearl the South Asia Bureau Chief of The Wall Street Journal was kidnapped and murdered by Al-Qaeda in Pakistan. All this month artists and musicians from all over the world are asked to create something in his memory.

This is my offering.
