Overview

This extremely early release on Peter Gabriel's Real World label is comprised of various semi-traditional musics featured in Martin Scorcese's Last Temptation of Christ. The soundtrack was compiled by Gabriel, with the first album featuring his own work, and the second featuring the work of others in the film. The album starts out with the artist that was to define the Real World label, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. After his qawwali, it moves through Senegalese/Parisian Baaba Maal, and some South Indian music from Shankar's group, featuring tabla great Zakir Hussain. Flutist Kudsi Erguner is featured in a ney piece, followed by worldbeat producer Hossam Ramzy's percussion showcase. Other various Persian, Indian, and African pieces follow, generally instrumental in nature. The bulk of the music is either Middle Eastern or North African, which is sensible given the subject of the film. The overuse of additional percussion on the tracks can become a bit cumbersome from time to time, but is still probably better than the original, unengineered versions of some of the field recordings used in the process. Pick it up for a look into Real World's early days, but for a better look at some of it, pick up solo albums from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Zakir Hussain, Baaba Maal, etc.
