Big blue ball by Peter Gabriel( Recording )

2 editions published in 2008 in Multiple languages and English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Almost eighteen years in the making, Big Blue Ball grew from three extraordinary recording weeks at Real World Studios in the summers of 1991, 1992 and 1995. The project's originators and curators were Real World founder Peter Gabriel and Karl Wallinger of World Party and The Waterboys. A huge number of artists came to the village of Box in Wiltshire to take part in these recording weeks, and contributed to writing the songs, making the music, and being part of that powerful sense of community that made the recording weeks so creative and so fruitful. The focus was as much on writing together as playing together, and the final tracks stand as an extraordinary testament to the common elements that bind so many different forms of music and music making together."--Record label website
