Classic Albums Series Looks At Peter Gabriel's So

(Gibson) Peter Gabriel is giving fans an unprecedented look into the creation of his landmark 1986 album So in the form of the latest installment of Eagle Rock Entertainment's popular Classic Albums series, in addition to various reissues and a live run celebrating the album.

So was Gabriel's 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. A special re-mastered version was recently released by Real World/EMI on CD, triple CD and a super deluxe box set.

The Classic Albums episode on the album features Peter Gabriel himself, co-producer Daniel Lanois, engineer Kevin Killen and musicians Jerry Marotta, Laurie Anderson, Tony Levin and Manu Katché and many more. It also includes over 30 minutes of extra material not features on the broadcast version. more on this story
