New Official Tony Banks Website Officially Launches; Solo Catalog CD Reissues In The Works

The first official Tony Banks site has launched on-line! We first announced news of this site's pending arrival back in February, and its now available for Tony Banks fans to enjoy! Perhaps most exciting about the new official website is the notes in the discography section that reveal that Tony's solo projects: The Fugitive (1983), Bankstatement (1989), Still (1991) and Strictly Inc. (1995) are all listed as "due for re-release." Hopefully, we will have more information on this shortly. Unfortunately, Tony's Wicked Lady soundtrack (which has never been on CD) and his Soundtracks albums are not listed as being "due for re-release."

Peter Gabriel "So 25 1/2" Coming in September!; So Classic Albums Program Airs in the UK

The completely remastered version of Peter Gabriel's So album aptly titled So 25 1/2, will be released this September. In addition to being remastered, the package will include bonus material. Details should be announced shortly. In other Peter Gabriel news, BBC 2 in the UK has broadcast a new episode of the TV program Classic Albums featuring Peter Gabriel's So. The one hour documentary features new interviews with Peter Gabriel, band members, Producer Daniel Lanois, and more! The documentary was handled by Eagle Rock Entertainment (who has recently released Peter's New Blood DVD and Blu-Ray Disc sets), so I suspect if this is not included in the So 25 1/2 packaging that it will be available for commercial release at some point soon. For future TV air dates of the Classic Albums episode featuring Peter Gabriel's So album click here.
