Peter Gabriel - Passion Limited Edition Half-Speed Mastered 180g 45RPM Vinyl 3LP
Peter Gabriel Passion Limited Edition Half-Speed Mastered 180g 45RPM Vinyl 3LP
Passion is the music, composed by Peter Gabriel for the 1988 Martin Scorsese film The Last Temptation of Christ. This 3LP release is half-speed remastered and cut to lacquers at 45rpm. The vinyl was cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peter's main sound engineer Richard Chappell. The LP looks amazing with a gatefold sleeve utilizing imagery from the original LP plus additional images from the film and also contains printed inner bags. All images are newly re-scanned.
The vinyl LP album also contains a download card with a choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24bit/96k or 16bit/44.1k).
Released a year after Martin Scorsese's controversy-laden film first hit the big screen in 1988, the Grammy Award-winning Passion tends to be regarded as a work in its own right rather than just being a movie soundtrack. It features additional music than was included in the film; this extra material was the result of Peter continuing to record and to resolve "unfinished ideas," hence the later arrival of the record.
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 himself interweave on the title track.
Nusrat and Youssou 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.
"In my research for Passion, many people mentioned the wonderful resources of the National Sound Archive and in particular introduced me to Lucy Duran, who both understood what I was hoping to achieve and made lots of great suggestions. Scorsese had asked for a new type of score that was neither ancient nor modern, that was not a pastiche but had clear references to the region, traditions and atmospheres, but was in itself a living thing." - Peter Gabriel
