Notes:
OST of the movie 'Performance' directed in 1968 by Donald Cammell and 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 'A Hard Day's Night' (1964), denied the film a cinematic release. 'Performance' was finally released in 1970 after several recuts and changes but is now frequently cited as a classic of British cinema.

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

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