Such a great compilation of music used in and also an inspiration for Peter Gabriel's soundtrack to Last Temptation of Christ. Here we have new recordings, field recordings, and old recordings, but all given a production treatment that makes them feel otherworldly and still right at home. Too much echo or modern production could have thoroughly ruined these treatments, but Gabriel was wise enough to know that he was making a soundtrack for a film that was to feel both ancient and timeless. It's no small wonder that Passion and Sources created a resurgence of interest for world music in the 1990s.

Peter Gabriel's Last Temptation soundtrack is one of the few OST that I can stomach from front to back. A lot of the people on that lp play on here under their own name. Its primary middle eastern music from folk to a contemporary twist. Big fan of this record.

After cherishing my cassette copy for years I finally scored a copy of this treasure on vinyl and I now feel safe in heping you all to this special collection, which is often found hiding right out in the open. Hiding behind the rather innocuous cover art, under the hit-or-miss "World Music" umbrella and under the household name of Peter Gabriel. Any or all of these things might cause one person or another to buzz passed this in the bins. However this record should be being sought out by all reverent hipsters out there who are presently scarfing up all those Mississippi Records, LP collections of old international ethnic recordings and those 'Secret Museum of Mankind' compilations. This is basically a collection of the musics that Peter Gabriel used for inspiration when he was working on the soundtrack for The Last Temptation Of Christ. The real (raw?) deal with a few tracks even credited to "unknown musicians" recorded on location... just how you like it!
