Peter Gabriel / Shaking the Tree – Recommended UK Press

More Peter Gabriel

New British import pressings with EXCELLENT SOUND. 

There is not a track here that wouldn’t KILL the sound of that track found on any of the Classic Heavy Vinyl pressings in a head to head shootout. And if you don’t agree we are more than happy to take this copy back and refund your money.

These pressings typically have some surface noise at the start of one side or the other, mostly caused by dust in the jacket that scuffed the vinyl in transit, so they have been priced far below what they would sell for if they were quieter, because the sound is, as I said, excellent.

This “greatest hits’ package comes across as a nice overview of his solo career, since he virtually had no hits in this country until So.

As greatest-hits albums go, it’s pretty good, containing all the hits, plus an effective re-recording of “Here Comes the Flood” and a good new song in the form of the title track. AMG
