Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel (1 / Car) [LP] (33 RPM)
Half-Speed Mastered 180g 33rpm LP!
Peter Gabriel's debut solo album, known as Car due to the iconic Hipgnosis designed cover, is available again in its original LP configuration.
Having left Genesis in the summer of 1976, at the age of 26, Peter released his first solo album in February of 1977. With legendary producer Bob Ezrin taking charge, the intention was to make a more direct and tougher record: something different from what had gone before. The record also provided one of Peter’s most recognizable songs in the shape of Solsbury Hill.
Half-Speed Remastered, cut to lacquers at 33rpm and pressed on 180g vinyl LP. Vinyl cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peter’s main sound engineer Richard Chappell. They album covers look amazing with the gatefold sleeves utilizing imagery from the initial release, sourced and re-scanned from original artwork.
