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. 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.
