Rated PG (rsd19)
Rated PG is a collection of Peter Gabriel songs from the movies.
Having always loved the combination of film and music (aged 17 he gave up a place at film school to pursue a career in music) - Peter Gabriel's first opportunity to really marry these twin interests came when he was asked to create the music for Alan Parker’s film ‘Birdy’ in 1985. Further film work, including his music for Martin Scorsese’s ’The Last Temptation of Christ’ (that became the album ‘Passion') and the soundtrack to Philip Noyce’s film ‘Rabbit-Proof Fence’ (released as the album 'Long Walk Home'), has continued to feed that interest. Alongside those longer soundtrack commissions Peter Gabriel has also regularly contributed songs to a diverse range of movies and this compilation explores this other connection forged by Peter between his music and film. Rated PG is an opportunity to bring together in one place and for the first time a selection of songs, be they written especially for, or used to notable effect in, movies and includes new and previously unreleased versions, otherwise unavailable songs and a brand new track. Rated PG is specially packaged for Record Store Day, with a picture disc and die-cut sleeve. The LP is numbered and limited edition.
