Passion, the music he'd written for the Martin Scorsese film The Last Temptation
Peter Gabriel's compilation of the sources that inspired Passion is available
once more from the Real World archives. A limited time bonus 24-bit hi-res
download is included with this LP reissue.
Recording the film soundtrack, Peter worked with many international musicians:
Some recorded at Real World Studios, some on the film's location in North

scope to hear more from these musicians in their own right.

Passion Sources was one of Real World Records' first releases in 1989, and it's
an intriguing snapshot of what the label would become.
