|Peter Gabriel Peter Gabriel 2 Limited Gatefold Numbered 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set + Download
Peter Gabrielís second solo album, affectionately known SCRATCH, due to the iconic Hipgnosis designed cover, will be re-issued on vinyl for the first time since 2002.
The album has been Half-Speed Remastered and cut to lacquers at 45RPM, across 2 x heavyweight LPs, to deliver maximum dynamic range in the sound. Vinyl cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peterís main sound engineer Richard Chappell. This album really has never sounded so good! It also looks amazing with the gatefold sleeve utilising imagery from the original LP inner bag and all images are newly re-scanned.
The album comes with a download card with a choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24/96k or 16/44.1k), and is both Numbered and a Limited Edition - 10,000 for the World.
Recorded in the Netherlands and New York City, Peterís second solo album saw Robert Fripp promoted to the role of producer. The album was released in June 1978. Fripp continued to feed Peterís growing fascination with electronics and the resulting album is denser and more experimental than the debut.
