Peter Gabriel's So Getting Classic Albums Treatment

The next installment in their Classic Albums DVD and Blu-ray series will focus on Peter Gabriel's blockbuster 1986 album, "So," and will be released on September 18 by Eagle Rock. Here are the details:

It was his fifth solo album and the first one to have a title (all others were self-titled). The album spawned a number of hit singles on both sides of the Atlantic including "Sledgehammer," "Big Time," "Don't Give Up," (a duet with Kate Bush) and "In Your Eyes" which drove So to multi-platinum sales, the No.1 spot in the UK and No.2 in the US.

The acclaimed Classic Albums series is a definitive collection of the stories behind the albums that form the soundtrack to our lives. Made with the full authorization and co-operation of the artists, Classic Albums: So offers contributions from many of those involved in the making of the album and the landmark videos. Those featured include Peter Gabriel himself, co-producer Daniel Lanois, engineer Kevin Killen and musicians Jerry Marotta, Laurie Anderson, Tony Levin and Manu Katchι and many more.

So was very much an album of the MTV generation and the distinctive videos for tracks like "Sledgehammer," "Red Rain," "Big Time," and "Don't Give Up" were key factors in the album's success. A special re-mastered version of the classic album So will be released by Real World/EMI in September 2012 on CD, triple CD and a super deluxe box set.

Classic Albums: So offers a unique perspective on the motivations behind – and the actual creation of – this masterwork and contains as Bonus Features over 30 minutes of additional material not included in the broadcast version. This release is not to be missed.
