Peter Gabriel - Passion OST
Numbered limited edition
Triple Lp 180g 45rpm with DL code
The album has been Half-Speed Remastered and cut to lacquers at 45RPM, across 3x heavyweight LPs, to deliver maximum dynamic range in the sound. Vinyl cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peter’s main sound engineer Richard Chappell. The album also looks amazing with the Gatefold sleeves utilising new photographs from The Last Temptation of Christ film as well as being true to the original LP design. All images are newly re-scanned. The album comes with a download card with a choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24bit or 16bit), and is both Numbered and a Limited Edition. 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 than was included in the film; this extra material was the result of Peter continuing to record and to resolve “unfinished ideas”. Built on a foundation of Middle Eastern and North African rhythms and melodies, Passionis 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.
