Peter Gabriel is the second solo album by the British singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel, released in 1978. The album is the second of four with the same eponymous title.

This album is often referred to as "Melt" due to its cover photograph by Hipgnosis.
"Shaking the Tree: Sixteen Golden Greats" was released in 1990 as Peter Gabriel's first "greatest hits" album, including songs from his first solo album "Peter Gabriel" (I or Car) (1977), through "Passion: Music for The Last Temptation of Christ" (1989).
