  1. When I was so much younger I recall the late night DJ playing this entire LP and introduced each cut with the liner notes. The next day I scrapped enough cash together and bought the LP at a small appliance store in Niagara Falls Ontario. Great memories.

  2. Could this record and the film be the inspiration for John Zorn's Naked City project?
