Half-Speed Mastered 180g 33rpm LP!
Peter Gabriels self-titled third solo album, affectionately known as MELT due to the iconic Hipgnosis designed cover is available again in its original LP configuration.
Produced by Steve Lillywhite, this third album saw Peter change his writing style; now the rhythm came before the melody and the songs were built up on top of the rhythmic sequences. The album delivered a top 5 UK single in Games Without Frontiers and Peters first overtly political song in the shape of totemic closer Biko. It also features notable contributions from Kate Bush, Paul Weller, Phil Collins and David Rhodes.
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 Peters 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. Albums include limited time download cards with a choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24bitor 16bit).
