Peter Gabriel Peter Gabriel 1: Car on Numbered Limited Edition 180g 45RPM 2LP + Download

Half-Speed Remastered & Cut to Lacquers at 45RPM!

In October 2015 Peter Gabriel’s first four self-titled solo albums will be available on vinyl for the first time since 2002. The first three releases are affectionately known as Car (1977), Scratch (1978) and Melt (1980) due to their iconic Hipgnosis designed covers. The fourth was named Security (1982) for the American market upon its initial release. 

All of the albums have been half-speed remastered and cut to lacquers at 45RPM, across two heavyweight 180g LPs to deliver maximum dynamic sound range. These records have really never sounded so good – pretty much as close to listening to the original master tape as it’s possible to get. The vinyl was cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peter’s main sound engineer Richard Chappell

These vinyl editions will be gatefold sleeves, utilizing imagery from the initial first LP pressings, sourced and re-scanned from original artwork. Each album comes in a numbered limited edition of 10,000 copies.

Having left Genesis in the summer of 1976, Peter’s first solo album arrived in February 1977. He was 26. With legendary producer Bob Ezrin taking charge, the intention was to make a more direct and tougher record: something different from what he had ever done before. The record also provided one of Peter’s most recognizable songs in the shape of "Solsbury Hill."

“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 than what I’d done before.” - Peter Gabriel
