Win Peter Gabriel’s ‘So’ 25th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set

Peter Gabriel giveaway
Real World Records/EMI

Peter Gabriel revitalized his career and scored one of the most critically and commercially successful albums of the ’80s with his 1986 release ‘So,’ which is being re-released in an expanded 25th Anniversary Edition on Oct. 23. Our readers can sign up to win a copy of this deluxe box set in this exclusive giveaway from Real World Records/EMI and Ultimate Classic Rock.

Launched by the enormous success of the lead single ‘Sledgehammer’ and its innovative music video — still MTV’s most-played clip of all time — ‘So’ was a worldwide hit, reaching No. 1 in the U.K., Canada, Italy, and Holland and No. 2 in the U.S. and Germany. The album also includes Gabriel classics like ‘In Your Eyes,’ the Kate Bush duet ‘Don’t Give Up’ and ‘Big Time,’ Gabriel’s parody of ’80s excess.

The 25th Anniversary Edition of ‘So’ will be available on CD and digitally, as well as in an expanded 3CD and digital Special Edition featuring a previously unreleased 1987 Athens concert recording from Gabriel’s ‘So’ tour, and as a 4CD/2DVD/LP/12″ Deluxe Limited Edition box set. The box set includes the remastered album on CD and 180-gram vinyl, mastered at half speed for optimal audio quality. The track list has been re-sequenced to reflect Gabriel’s original vision, which was altered for the initial release.

The package also features previously unreleased audio and video content, including the two Athens concert CDs and a CD titled ‘So DNA’ comprising drafts of the songs as works in progress, which map the album’s evolution from concept to completion. It also includes a DVD featuring the Athens concert, which was Gabriel’s first-ever filmed concert and has been completely restored to appear here for the first time. A second DVD includes a new installment of the Classic Album documentary series about the making of ‘So,’ featuring new interviews with Gabriel and co-producer Daniel Lanois.

And if that’s not enough for Gabriel fans, the box also offers a 12-inch double A-side vinyl single with two previously unreleased tracks from the ‘So’ sessions, ‘Courage’ and ‘Sangrada,’ and an alternate version of ‘Don’t Give Up’ (Piano and Bvox Mix). A 60-page case-bound book with an introduction, a summary of the ‘So DNA’ written by Peter Gabriel, new liner notes, and a collection of rare and never-before-seen photographs completes the box set.
