Peter Gabriel
"Security" (Vinyl)

Released in 1982, this early all-digital recording was Gabriel's fourth eponymous album but was released under the title "Security" in the US.

Roughly five years after his departure as Genesis' frontman, Peter Gabriel was busy at work innovating and exploring new modes of music-making.
The use of sampling and loops on 'Security' marked an early predecessor of electronic music forms that have since gained popularity amongst musicians like Bjork and Imogen Heap.
