Limited numbered double 180 gram vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve, also includes download cards with a choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24-bit/96k or 16-bit/44.1k). Peter Gabriel's first four self-titled albums available for the first time on vinyl 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 it's initial release. All of the albums have been half-speed remastered and cut to lacquers at 45RPM, across two heavyweight 180 gram 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. 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."
