Peter Gabriel Launching Limited Edition Remastered Albums (Week In Review)
It's the first in a series that will see all his records available in vinyl. They arrive on October 22 on Real World via Caroline International. The eponymous albums - referred to as 1 to 4 or Car, Scratch, Melt and Security, based on their cover art - followed his departure from Genesis in 1975, and established him as a solo artist.
Gabriel says: "I really wanted the first record to be different from what I'd done with Genesis, so we were trying to do things in different styles. A bit of barbershop, which Tony Levin helped with. There were more bluesy things, a variety of songs and arrangements that were consciously trying to provide something different."
Each 180g double album is presented in gatefold sleeve in an individually-numbered run of 10,000 copies worldwide. Long out-of-print German vocal versions of Gabriel's third and fourth albums will be limited to 3,000 copies each. Each pack will include a download cards with a choice of resolution: hi-res 24-bit/96k or 16-bit/44.1k. Read more - here.
