Peter Gabriel
Passion Outtakes [1CD]

In 1989, Peter Gabriel released Passion, the soundtrack to Martin Scorsese’s film, The Last Temptation of Christ, recorded on location in Morocco and other parts of North Africa and the Middle East.

Like the film, it was thought provoking for not assimilating its world music influences into a western pop culture context but actually trying best to fit into that culture. He released it on a new imprint called Real World Music. The only concession perhaps was the use of a church choir to embellish the beautiful With This Love.

Together with Passion, Peter Gabriel also released another album called Passion Sources featuring the original music that inspired his score, careful not to invite criticism that he was stealing the music.

The Passion album brought much attention of world music figures like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Youssou N'Dour, and Baaba Maal to the American public and was a forerunner of world music being used in Hollywood movies. Gabriel was spot on in understanding the importance of ambiance and meditation in Eastern music as opposed to the pomp and ceremony of the Western style. It fitted perfectly into Scorsese’s moody film about the Christ.

Here is an hour long collection of sessions made in 1988 and 1989 that never made it to the soundtrack of The Last Temptation of Christ in excellent quality albeit with some hiss in the quieter passages.
