Daniel Mason got in touch with CR recently to tell us about a new collectors’ edition of Peter Gabriel‘s Scratch My Back album. At $299, the pack won’t appeal to everyone – but I always find these collectors editions interesting – for a variety of reasons.Here are images and a run through of what is included in the lavish release:

Mason acted as consultant to designer Marc Bessant who designed the pack which comes in a full colour and gloss laminated lift off lid box:

– which contains a 4GB USB key containing 96khz/24 bit studio quality audio of the album

which comes housed in a high density laser engraved foam tray:

Blood red, 180gsm heavyweight 12 inch vinyl pressing of the album featuring new sleeve artwork unique to the edition:

The special edition double CD pack of the album, housed in a case-bound, full colour and gloss laminated 10 inch cover – which is itself housed in a high density foam tray:

A 12×12 inch print of the original album cover artwork, printed on 352gsm Mohawk Superfine Ultrawhite Smooth stock, signed and numbered in pencil by Peter Gabriel:

And you also get a a foilblocked and numbered certificate of authenticity! Only 500 of these editions have been made.
