Real World 25 :: Various Artists


Real World Records 25 --coverIn 1989 lanceerde Peter Gabriel de platenmaatschappij Real World. De debuutuitgave was The Passion, Gabriel’s muziek voor de Martin Scorsese-film The Last Temptation Of Christ. Daarna verscheen er muziek van over de hele wereld, soms van grote namen, soms obscuur, maar altijd meer dan de moeite. Om het 25-jarig bestaan te vieren is er Real World 25, een fijn uitgevoerd boxje met drie CD’s met hoogtepunten, verborgen schatten en door de luisteraars gekozen nummers. Het geeft een mooi beeld van een van de meest avontuurlijke labels uit de muziekgeschiedenis.

Beautifully packaged Clamshell Box with 3 CD wallets, 28 page booklet containing the story of 25 Years of Real World Records, and a collection of Real World Tales with contributions from musicians, producers, designer and managers.
How, then, to condense a quarter century? How to represent a record label that blazed trails, opened doors and introduced a whole new world of music? It was never going to be easy, or definitive. But with Real World 25 – a celebratory 3CD set boasting big names, hidden gems and tracks chosen by listeners – we’re giving it a go.
“We’ve always been vibrant, alive and kicking,” says Peter Gabriel of Real World Records, the label he launched in 1989, a few years after establishing the WOMAD (World of Music Arts and Dance) Festival. “We worked hard to create an environment where the artists felt respected and supported, so that they were able to deliver extraordinary performances.”
