180-gram gatefold double LP
Half-speed remastered and cut to lacquers at 45 RPM
Limited to 10,000 copies worldwide
Peter Gabriel presents remastered limited edition viny versions of his first four solo records. This marks their return to the format for the first time since 2002.
It´s the first in a series that will see all of his records available in vinyl. The eponymous albums in this first batch — 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 Gabriel as a solo artist.
Each 180-gram double album is presented in a gatefold jacket, 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. Albums come with downloads in a choice of resolutions: hi-res 24-bit/96k or 16-bit/44.1k.
Co-produced by Peter and David Lord this is the first album where Peter really immersed himself in the music of distant lands and cultures. It was also his first fully digital recording. These two elements created a deeply effective soldering-together of futurism and generations-old tradition. The single "Shock The Monkey" became Peter´s first top 30 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Half-Speed remastered and cut to lacquers at 45 RPM, across two heavyweight LPs to deliver maximum dynamic sound range. Vinyl cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peter´s main sound engineer Richard Chappell. These albums really have never sounded so good! They also look amazing with the gatefold sleeves utilizing imagery from the initial release, sourced and re-scanned from original artwork.
