Versions

"After the Ordeal" is an instrumental written by Steve Hackett; the first half is a classical guitar and piano piece followed by an electric guitar solo. Tony Banks and Peter Gabriel did not want to include the song on the album, but Hackett insisted it should be kept. It was ultimately left on after Gabriel and Banks argued about the length of "The Cinema Show", which meant everything was included as a compromise. Read more on Last.fm.
