TVD Giveaway: Peter Gabriel, the Complete Solo Studio Albums

For the first giveaway of the new year, we’re not giving away just one album… We’re giving away a complete set. 

Imitation is said to be the best form of flattery. If the saying is true, then cover songs, if done well, can be seen as a form of respect from one musician to another. In the case of former Genesis band member, current solo singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel, cover songs were the inspiration behind a two-part music project titled Scratch My Back/And I’ll Scratch Yours.

The project involved what was described by Gabriel as a “song exchange” between other musicians and himself. He would cover an artist’s song, and in return, said artist would take a creative swing at one of his songs.

The first part, Scratch My Back, was released in 2010. The second, And I’ll Scratch Yours, comes out in the US today.

And I’ll Scratch Yours features the other half of the song exchange: the artists covering Gabriel’s songs. The album contains twelve different takes on twelve of the English musician’s tracks, including hit singles “Shock the Monkey” and “Big Time.”

In honor of the release of the long-awaited second part of Gabriel’s project, we’re giving away everything that came before it: a collection of the new Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s complete studio albums. The 18-CD collection includes all of Gabriel’s complete albums post-Genesis, starting with his 1977 self-titled release.

To win the collection of Peter Gabriel’s complete studio albums, leave a comment below naming your favorite song by Peter Gabriel. Though not originally by him, I’d have to go with “The Book of Love.” A winner with a North American mailing address will be chosen on Tuesday, January 14. 

And I’ll Scratch Yours is available for purchase through online music retailers. A limited two-CD version, Scratch My Back/And I’ll Scratch Yours, featuring both the 2010 and recent release, is also available for purchase.
