Product Description

The latest addition to the acclaimed & award winning Classic Albums series tells the story behind the making of Peter Gabriel s 1986 album So . It was Gabriel s fifth solo album and the first one to have a title (the others all having just been called Peter Gabriel ). The album spawned a number of hit singles on both sides of the Atlantic including Sledgehammer , Big Time , Don t Give Up (a duet with Kate Bush) and In Your Eyes which drove So to multi-platinum sales, the No.1 spot in the UK and No.2 in the US. So was very much an album of the MTV generation and the distinctive videos for tracks like Sledgehammer , Red Rain , Big Time and Don t Give Up were key factors in the album s success. The programme features contributions from many of those involved in the making of the album and the videos including Peter Gabriel himself, co-producer Daniel Lanois, engineer Kevin Killen and musicians Jerry Marotta, Laurie Anderson, Tony Levin and Manu Katché amongst many.

Product Description

So č il capolavoro che PETER GABRIEL ha realizzato nel 1986. Si trattava del settimo album solista e conteneva brani intramontabili come Sledgehammer, Big Time, Don't Give Up (in duetto con Kate Bush) e In Your Eyes. Un fattore determinante per l'incredibile successo di So era anche la straordinaria bellezza ed originalitą dei videoclip che accompagnavano i singoli estratti dall'album. Il documentario racconta la genesi di So grazie anche alle testimonianze dei molti artisti che vi avevano preso parte. Dal co-produttore DANIEL LANOIS all'ingegnere del suono KEVIN KILLEN ed ai musicisti JERRY MAROTTA, LAURIE ANDERSON, TONY LEVIN e MANU KATCHE'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Albums- a bit like Marmite I suppose 27 Sep 2012
By Franimi
Couldn't disagree more with other reviewer. I saw the screening also, and was gripped. I could listen to PG all night, I find him one of the most endearing, fascinating, intelligent interviewees in rock music (or indeed, any other field). I suppose you either love this sort of in-depth dissection of an album or you don't. I do. I have a few in my collection, the DVDs are generally longer than the broadcast version as well. One thing though, how did the darkly handsome Daniel Lanois transmogrify into a Hobbit in a wooly hat?
