Describing the time on his website Gabriel notes: "I think when we played the album back we knew it was good. It wasn't like I was an obscure artist; I'd had hits with Shock The Monkey, Games Without Frontiers and Solsbury Hill but after each of them I'd purposefully retreated partially back into the shadows. With 'So' this was the end of the idea of me being a sort of cult artist at the fringes of the mainstream, especially in America. There wasn't an option to go and hide in the shadows any more."
'So' 25th anniversary edition is the opportunity to explore how the album was made, the stories behind the songs, the evolution of each track and the outstanding live performance of the 'So' tour. It is on sale now from www.petergabriel.com
"Time leaves an indelible stamp on everything. When you revisit your past you can no longer live inside it, but you can walk around it, open up old memories and occasionally catch the scent of some place in which you lived". Peter Gabriel
