Peter Gabriel’s So to Be Subject of Classic Albums Documentary
Eagle Rock Entertainment has announced that Peter Gabriel’s 1986 album So will be the next installment in the ongoing Classic Albums documentary series. Telling the story behind the making of Peter Gabriel’s fifth solo album, the documentary offers contributions from many of those involved in the making of the album and the landmark videos. Those featured include Peter Gabriel himself, co-producer Daniel Lanois, engineer Kevin Killen and musicians Jerry Marotta, Laurie Anderson, Tony Levin and Manu Katché and many more.
So spawned a number of hit singles including the much-loved “Sledgehammer,” “Big Time,” “Don’t Give Up,” (a duet with Kate Bush) and “In Your Eyes” which shot the album to multi-platinum sales. It was Gabriel’s fifth solo album and the first one to have a title (all others were self-titled).
Classic Albums: So will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on September 18 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. A special re-mastered version of the classic album So will be released by Real World/EMI in September 2012 on CD, triple CD and a super deluxe box set.
