Half-Speed Remastered and Cut To Lacquers at 33rpm on Heavyweight 180g Vinyl
Peter Gabriel's self-titled second solo album, affectionately known as SCRATCH, due to the iconic Hipgnosis designed cover has been half-speed remastered and cut to lacquers at 33RPM, on heavyweight 180g LP. Vinyl cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peter's main sound engineer Richard Chappell. Sleeve artwork and inner bag as per the original vinyl release. Albums also include choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24/96k or 16/44.1k).
Recorded in the Netherlands and New York City, Peter Gabriel's second solo effort saw King Crimson's Robert Fripp promoted to the role of producer. The album was originally released in June 1978. Fripp continued to feed Peter's growing fascination with electronics and the resulting album is denser and more experimental than his solo debut from the year prior.
"We recorded the second album in Holland were we started to get to know each other a lot more as musicians. At that time there were less people in the studio and we started, in this isolated environment of the Dutch studio, to interact in a different way, and I think some of the band chemistry began to form...Tony Levin, Larry Fast and Robert Fripp were the only people from the first album that were carried over into the second album. Tony also introduced me to Jerry Marotta, who played a big part in the early records, as did Larry with all the textures he was providing and the synthesizers." - Peter Gabriel
