Music has the extraordinary ability to transcend time and space, transporting us to different eras and emotions. In 1982, the world was introduced to a masterpiece that blended innovation, collaboration, and artistic brilliance.

As we delve into the story of this remarkable album, we embark on a journey through the unique combination of digital mastering and the allure of the 12" Vinyl LP.

Peter Gabriel, the charismatic and visionary musician, had already established himself as a creative force within the music industry. His solo career had taken off after leaving the progressive rock band Genesis, and he sought to experiment further with his sound. Around the same time, Peter Hammill, a renowned British singer-songwriter and member of the influential progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator, was exploring new musical landscapes of his own.

When Gabriel and Hammill joined forces, musical magic was bound to unfold. "Deutsches Album" became the vessel through which their artistic chemistry flowed. The album incorporated elements of progressive rock, avant-garde, and electronic music, creating a captivating blend of genres that defied categorization. Their collaboration aimed to push the boundaries of conventional music, emphasizing innovation, and lyrical depth.

The 1980s marked a turning point in music production, with the advent of digital technology. "Deutsches Album" embraced this technological revolution and became one of the earliest albums to be digitally mastered. Digital mastering offered enhanced precision, clarity, and dynamic range, bringing a newfound crispness to the music. This technique provided Gabriel and Hammill with the tools to fully realize their sonic vision, emphasizing the intricacies of every instrument and vocal performance.

Despite the rise of compact discs during the early '80s, the 12" Vinyl LP continued to hold a special place in the hearts of audiophiles. "Deutsches Album" was released on vinyl, providing a tangible and immersive experience for the listener. The album cover art, designed by renowned artist Hipgnosis, added a visual dimension to the musical journey, complementing the rich tapestry of sounds within.

Upon its release, "Deutsches Album" captivated both fans and critics alike. Its groundbreaking sound and avant-garde sensibilities pushed the boundaries of popular music. It remains an enduring testament to the artistic vision of Gabriel and Hammill and their willingness to explore uncharted musical territories.
