Peter Gabriel
Peter Gabriel (1)

  (Item #: gabrigabr1_1802) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • A superb British pressing with Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides - this copy sounds RICH and TUBEY the way it should
  • Killer throughout - bigger, bolder, more bass, more energy and presence, and the list goes on
  • Clearly the hardest of the first five PG records to find with good sound and decent vinyl, which is why these rarely make the site
  • "...much of the record teems with invigorating energy (as on Slowburn, or the orchestral-disco pulse of Down the Dolce Vita), and the closer "Here Comes the Flood" burns with an anthemic intensity that would later become his signature in the '80s."
