Peter Gabriel Revisited is a compilation album which includes only songs of Peter Gabriel's first two albums, as Atlantic had retained the US distribution rights to Gabriel's first and second albums. It compiles 7 of 9 tracks from the first album, and 8 of 11 from the second. Allmusic, noting that the compilation ill-served both committed and casual Gabriel fans, labelled this album "good but useless". [2]
