Peter Gabriel Passion Music for the Last Temptation of Christ 180g Vinyl 2LP

 

Half-Speed Remastered 180g Vinyl 2LP Reissue Cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering and Mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis!

 

Passion: Music for ‘The Last Temptation of Christ' was released a year after Martin Scorsese's controversy-laden film first hit the big screen in 1988. Passion tends to be regarded as a work in its own right rather than just being a movie soundtrack. It features additional music to that which was included in the film; this extra material was the result of Peter Gabriel continuing to record and to resolve "unfinished ideas".

 

Built on a foundation of Middle Eastern and North African rhythms and melodies, Passion is unsurprisingly Peter's most spiritual work, no more so than when the alternately ascending voices of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Youssou N'Dour and Peter himself interweave on the title track. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Youssou N'Dour are far from the only notable guests; the cross-continental gathering of musicians also includes Senegalese griot Baaba Maal, jazz drummer Bill Cobham and avant-garde trumpeter Jon Hassell among many others.

 

The album has been half-speed remastered and cut to lacquers at 33RPM, across two heavyweight 180g vinyl LPs, to deliver maximum dynamic range in the sound. Vinyl cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis. The album is true to the original LP design with a wide-spine jacket and printed inner sleeves, but now utilizes color photographs from The Last Temptation of Christ film.
