WINTER 1972By the end of 1972, GOLD was appearing at the Classic Cinema in London's Piccadilly Circus and was heavily promoted on Radio Caroline.
The sessions were recorded in London in february 1972. Ronan O'Rahilly played the scenes from the film GOLD to the band (the film was directed in 1968 by US filmmaker Bob Levis). Wayne Kramer played the bass on that occasion. Sound engineer was Henry Henroid.
GOLD, TRAIN MUSIC, INSIDE OUT were the 3 (known) songs the MC5 recorded.
Only TRAIN MUSIC and INSIDE OUT would appear on the soundtrack LP released on Mother Records in 1972.
Other MC5 songs performed in the film are FUTURE / NOW from their 3rd album High Time, the outro of SISTER ANNE (performed by the Salvation Army fanfare) used for the amusement park scene, and a short excerpt of what seems to be an alternate take of title track GOLD.
