Peter Gabriel is the first studio album by British rock musician Peter Gabriel after his departure from the British progressive rock band Genesis, released in 1977.  It was produced by Bob Ezrin.

This album is often called either Peter Gabriel 1 or Car, referring to the album cover by London artist Peter Christopherson when he was associated with the London artists group Hipgnosis.

During the The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway tour (November 1974 to May 1975), Gabriel announced to his Genesis bandmates that he had decided to leave the band.  Following his departure from Genesis, Gabriel and Ezrin assembled a team of musicians, including Robert Fripp of King Crimson, to record the album.

Peter Gabriel was recorded at The Soundstage in Toronto with producer Bob Ezrin between July 1976 – January 1977; with additional recording sessions taking place at Morgan Studios, London, UK and Olympic Studios, London, England.

Gabriel's first solo success came with the album's lead single "Solsbury Hill", an autobiographical piece expressing his thoughts on leaving Genesis.  Solisbury Hill became a Top 20 hit in the UK and reached #68 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The album went to #7 in UK and #38 in the USA.

This is a Limited Edition 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl 2LP release limited to 10,000 numbered copies worldwide.
