Notes

Made in France

A Goodtimes Enterprises Production.
OST of the movie <i>Performance</i> directed in 1968 by Donald Cammell / Nicolas Roeg.
A dark, experimental film with the cut-up technique dealing with issue of identity crisis which included graphic depictions of sex, drug use and violence. Warner Bros. studio executives, who believed they were getting a Rolling Stones equivalent of the Beatles <i>A Hard Day's Night</i> (1964), denied the film a cinematic release. <i>Performance</i> was finally released in 1970 after several recuts and changes but is now frequently cited as a classic of British cinema.

The lyrics of <i>Memo From Turner</i> were re-written for this film and so different than on the Rollings Stones <i>Metamorphosis</i> LP from 1975.

According to Colin McCabe (in his book <i>Performance</i>) the Moog synthesizer was so new that none were commercially available and a prototype was used for these recordings in 1968 by Bernie Krause.
