Peter Gabriel’s groundbreaking “Sledgehammer” video remaster in 4K

Even though it’s over 30 years old. Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” is a delight to watch. Unfortunately, most of us have only seen it in its original non-digital 4:3 NTSC version. Compared to even what we’d consider barely okay resolution (say, 720p), that original looks pretty grainy.

Now the video has been refurbished in stunning 4K.

Let’s compare. Here’s the version we’re used to seeing.

Now here’s a teaser for the new version.
