    I was browsing at a local store when I spotted some remastered Peter Gabriel CDs. The whole catalogue has been remastered and reissued in two forms: A regular jewel-box edition and a "limited edition" digipak. Apparently they've been out since April. No DVD-Audio or SACD versions, though.

    I snatched up Security, Us and So (the only ones the store had). I'm currently listening to Security. So far it sounds great -- LOTS better than the original CD. I've noticed two tracks ("San Jacinto" and "The Family and the Fishing Net") that seem to be slightly extended. There are extra repetitions of some chanting choruses.

    Raul, I picked up the remastered version of So a couple weeks ago when Best Buy had it on sale for $9.99. It is decidedly better than the original CD. That is the only Gabriel remaster I have picked up thus far.

    There was some talk here recently about Peter Gabriel coming to SACD. I don't know if that is set in stone. A search should pull up the thread.

    Now that I have an SACD player, I would love PG in SACD!

    Here's a thread about the remasters from back when they were released in April.

    Hm. I did a search for "Peter Gabriel remaster" before posting to make sure I wasn't being redundant, and it didn't turn up that thread.

    Anybody know when the new album comes out? It was supposed to be this month, I thought.

    Gabriel's official site mentions that all the remasters are currently being prepared for both SACD and DVD-Audio release sometime in the future. (I'd heard that they were preparing to decide between the two, so obviously at some point they must have decided on both). I've heard no other details besides this though.

    Anthony, thanks for sharing this information. I would be surprised if Peter Gabriel's catalog were released on both formats, but I hope at least one format gets these titles. I'd love to hear So in high resolution!

    Mike, that would be something. I'd probably buy my favorite titles on both formats. I'd love to compare So on SACD and DVD-Audio. [​IMG]

    I guess I'll have to go with DVD-A, since the SACD part of my player is so inferior [​IMG]

    They could complete the picture by releasing the Secret World Live video on DVD.
