Overview

This soundtrack captures the various moods of a spacy film starring Mick Jagger as a reclusive rock star whose home is invaded by a fleeing gangster. On the opening track, Randy Newman is driven hard by Ry Cooder's fierce slide guitar. If you listen closely, you can hear the laconic Newman almost crack up laughing as he rocks like never before or since. Other musical notables include Merry Clayton and Buffy Sainte-Marie. Veteran producer Jack Nitzsche wrote most of the tunes, a notable exception being "Memo From Turner," penned by Jagger and Keith Richards. Listening to only the soundtrack, you miss the bizarre context of the movie, but this is one interesting listen.
