Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 187/500!


One of the most successful and iconic music releases, Peter Gabriel's 1986 album, So, has been remastered for this special 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Box Set!

Released in 1986, "So" became one of the defining albums of the era and landed an international array of multi-platinum certifications ( in the US alone, it has sold over 5 million copies). Launched with the huge hit single and groundbreaking music video "Sledgehammer", which remains MTV's most played video of all time, "So" also contains many of Gabriel's biggest hits and most loved songs including "In Your Eyes", which famously featured in Cameron Crowe's movie "Say Anything" the haunting duet "Don't' Give Up", which was performed with Kate Bush, and "Big Time".

Released in 1986, 'So' became one of the defining albums of the era, landing multitudes of awards, millions of sales and a huge hit single with 'Sledgehammer'. But when Peter started work on this, his fifth album, in February 1985 in an old farmhouse called Ashcombe near Bath he had no idea of the explosive and enduring impact this album would have.

In February 1986 Peter finally finished the album:
"I think when we played the album back we knew it was good. It wasn’t like I was an obscure artist; I’d had hits with Shock The Monkey, Games Without Frontiers and Solsbury Hill but after each of them I’d purposefully retreated partially back into the shadows. With 'So' this was the end of the idea of me being a sort of cult artist at the fringes of the mainstream, especially in America. There wasn’t an option to go and hide in the shadows any more."

'So' 25th anniversary edition is the opportunity to explore how the album was made, the stories behind the songs, the evolution of each track and the outstanding live performance of the 'So' tour.
