"True Independent Cinema since 1958"

So I listened to it. Lots of film dialogue, some of which is pretty absurdist. You get the music, which includes the theme, some more musique concrete from FZ and Bud Shank also contributed music. It is worth a listen, but I think a shorter CD with less dialogue would have sufficed. It is a download, or at least that is how I got it.

Are you familiar with the movie? Length-wise it is just about in-line with it. Did they try something at least moderately creative or is it basically a rip of the audio from the visuals?

More like a rip from the movie

I remember watching quite a bit of this film once on Youtube and being delighted at hearing an early version of the melody that would become Holiday in Berlin.
Have you heard that on the soundtrack?
