Missed this anniversary by a day – but better late than never.
PERFORMANCE SOUNDTRACK – “ACID TRIP”
September 19, 1970
It was forty-two years ago today that the PERFORMANCE soundtrack was released and instantly became one of my all-time favorite albums.
Filmed in 1968 and fraught with seemingly endless delays; it wasn’t released by Warner Brothers until 1970. The film’s owners thought they were getting the Stones’ version of the Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night” – you can imagine their dismay after viewing a Rock ‘n’ Roll gangster movie with purportedly actual sex scenes, drug use and a whole lot of gender-bending – a very dark, twisted, beautiful, entertaining trip – and that’s what makes the soundtrack excellent!
Listening to this LP, and I mean really listening, from beginning to end may give those who’ve never experienced psychedelics a peek at what all the fun is about – this album is a mind-bending acid trip!
