PETER GABRIEL So (Classic 1986 UK 8-track LP including Red Rain Sledgehammer and Dont Give Up [with Kate Bush] picture sleeve with lyric inner. The sleeve shows a little wear whilst the vinyl is Excellent with light signs of play PG5)
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I find that they still sound relevant and have stood the test of time. That groove of Sledgehammer with the energetic horns pushing you into one of the most melodic and powerful baselines in pop music, tight drums and the nicely sarcastic/funny lyrics... I don't get bored by it!
One of my other favourites is In Your Eyes. A classically beautiful melody driven by an understated groove.
The reissue in this boxset is IMO the ultimate version mainly because of the excellent vinyl that comes with it. For a change any re-mastering and new pressing equipment have not ruined the dynamics and soundstage. To the contrary, this is the best sounding version of So that I have. More dynamic lows without it feeling hyped than the original pressings I have. And even a bit more clarity and detail. I usually associate this with the excellent re-issues by Analogue Productions or Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab. I would say that this vinyl is of similar quality.
In all other aspects (print quality, finishing of the box and sleeves) this box set is lovingly made.
Just one negative remark: at this kind of price I would have expected some good quality (anti static, soft plastic)inner sleeves.
And the live album is a bonus and a delight.
In fact, empty the room of interlopers, turn it up, in the dim light, drink in hand, it's like a concert. Great stuff from a great artist, songwriter, entertainer, and performer.
I bought the original 'So' as well, I guess I am a fan. In total, 2.72 hours of stonking-good Pete Gabriel trax.
