Peter Gabriel: So25 - all releases

An overview about all releaes 2012


So - that was 1986 and it wasn't just a groundbreaking album, it was the commercial breakthru for Peter Gabriel. But SO was far more than just a pop album. More than 25 years later, Peter looks back at So and releases a bunch of Sets. These are the So25 releases:

DVD1 Classic Albums: So

The documentary, as known from the BBS broadcast, but 30 minutes longer on this DVD. It will also be available separately - also on Blu-ray.


DVD2 Live In Athens

This DVD is a complete concert film from the Athens show 1987, it was built from scratch from the original material and is also mixed in 5.1. It is different from the POV film and contains more tracks. The tracklist is identical to the Live In Athens CDs.


LP: So

A 180g vinyl version of the album


Maxi-Single / Double-A-Side

A Double-A-Side with three so far unreleased tracks

Courage
Sagrada
Don't Give Up

Some comments (as of 13/08/2012):


Looking at the above mentioned releases, the boxset should be of special interest.


Live In Athens

It is obviously a new mix and a completely new concert film. The old POV film seems to be gone, but we get additional songs, so it looks like a complete concert film now. Bonus footage has not been revealed yet. Since Gabriel himself said a while ago they were working on a HD version of Live In Athens, it can be concluded the concert film will be available on Blu-ray at some point in the future also.


So DNA

It seems this CD is something like a "Baby" CD in the Achtung Baby Boxset by U2. It may be interesting, but it looks like these tracks are the only work in progress outtaked available.


Unreleased tracks

It seems that the 3 unreleased tracks, 2 of which are completely unknown songs, are only available on vinyl! With recent release policies in mind, one might think that Gabriel will make these tracks available in Apple lossless and MP3 format to those who buy the boxset directly from his webshop. This a speculation, but would not be a real suprise. The two so far unknown tracks were rumoured to be included on I/O some years ago.


So in 5.1?

It seems there will NOT be a 5.1 version of So!


General thoughts

It seems strange to mix vinyl formats with CDs and DVDs. Also, the documentary will be available separately on DVD and also Blu-ray! It doesn't make much sense to have it included here, especially when you own a Blu-ray player. Also, the B-Sides are missing (Curtains, Don't Break This Rhythm), no 5.1 version, a 2CD Live In Athens - which is really not necessary when you can have the complete film on DVD or Blu-ray in 5.1. It looks like this release is more disappointing than pleasing.
