Peter Gabriel's first four self-titled solo albums are being made available on vinyl for the first time since 2002. Also being re-issued are the long out-of-print German vocal versions of Peter Gabriel's third (Ein Deutsches Album) and fourth (Deutsches Album) records.

The first three releases are affectionately known as Car, Scratch and Melt due to their iconic Hipgnosis designed covers. The fourth was named Security for the American market on its initial release.

All 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 English language album comes as a limited edition of 10,000 Worldwide (German versions limited to 3,000 Worldwide). All are individually numbered.

Albums include download cards with a choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24-bit/96k or 16-bit/44.1k).

Released on 2 October 2015, the albums are available to Pre-Order now from: www.petergabriel.com/vinyl.
