Limited edition gatefold double LP

Peter Gabriel's song-swap project in full, includes versions of his songs by Arcade Fire, Joseph Arthur, Bon Iver, Lou Reed, Paul Simon and more!

This is actually a package of two different albums: Peter Gabriel's 2010 collection of cover songs Scratch My Back and the late 2013 follow-up And I'll Scratch Yours, which has (most of) the artists whose songs Gabriel sang on that album reciprocating by performing Gabriel's songs. 

Don't expect a single, unified musical experience from this package. Scratch My Back, which features Peter Gabriel performing with piano and chamber orchestra, is definitely an excellent, high-concept musical experience as the songs all share similar orchestral colors. "And I'll Scratch Yours" is more an individual effort with some brilliant moments. A good opportunity to see favorite songs in Gabriel's catalog given a fresh life and a new interpretation.
