Liner notes

“After the music for ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ was completed and released under the name ‘Passion’, we put out an accompanying record called ‘Passion Sources’. This was an opportunity to present some of the music that had influenced the writing, and show some of the work of the musicians involved.

“We had wonderful feedback from that album, which encouraged me to release this record to accompany the ‘Us’ record. I have an extraordinary band who provides the foundation of my records, and at the same time I am very lucky to be able to work with musicians from all over the world. They make an enormous contribution to the sound of my work and this is an opportunity to hear some of the other music that these remarkable musicians have created.”

Reviews

  • A world music compendium, generously doused with previously unreleased music and skilfully sequenced so that tracks with little common ground flow effortlessly into one another. Exuberant. Billboard (UK)
  • This is a fine collection of pieces that are as good in their way as the other album they helped realise. On The Street (UK)
  • This is the source material from Peter's US. In effect, it is the great man showing his working out. Blue Juice (UK)

    Released 13 September 1993

    In August 1992, Peter Gabriel asked the production team of Mark Rutherford and John Gosling to create an album in seven days with a diverse array of international musicians and producers. While they steered each piece of music toward a coherent form, the unique input of the musicians gives a fresh spirit to every track.
