Four classic Peter Gabriel live albums reissued on half-speed mastered vinyl

Plays Live • Live in Athens 1987 • Secret World Live • Growing Up Live

Peter Gabriel is to reissue four classic live albums on vinyl, with each multi-disc package half-speed mastered and coming with a hi-res download card.

The albums in question are Plays Live, Live in Athens 1987, Secret World Live and Growing Up Live. Each is from the tour that followed Gabriel’s last four studio albums (Peter Gabriel/Security, So, Us and Up).

Of the four, only Plays Live has been issued on vinyl previously. Secret World Live was only ever released on CD and cassette, Live in Athens 1987 was included on CD was part of the So 25th anniversary reissue and until now, Growing Up Live has only ever been a DVD / Blu-ray concert film.

All the albums have been half-speed remastered and cut to lacquers at 33RPM by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peter Gabriel’s sound engineer Richard Chappell. The LPs also come with a hi-res audio download code.

Plays Live comes in a wide-spine single sleeve with full colour printed inner bags that are faithful to the original LP design (images are newly re-scanned). Marc Bessant at Real World has handled all the artwork and has created new designs for Live in Athens 1987 and Growing Up Live. The latter is the only gatefold and also the only 3LP vinyl set.

These are being released via Caroline International at monthly intervals, starting with Plays Live on 28 August. Live in Athens follows on 16 October (was 25 Sep), Secret World Live on 6 November and finally Growing Up Live on 27 November 2020
