there is archive Frameworks stuff about this (those who know will doubtlesssly bring to light/confirm/deny) - but I do recall someone, onlist, saying that, circa 1964, Smith sent some would-be-soundtracker down to Tower Records (or whatever it was then) to pick up a copy of the then-contemporary "With The Beatles" to accompany those images...

Which makes me wonder, if there were a DVD release of "Heaven & Earth", or a contemporary touring print, what would be chosen? I seem to recall whispers of versions w/Coltrane and the like, what would be the perfect soundtrack for these fragments, these finished films?

ladies and gentlemen of the jury...

Can anyone shed some light on the soundtrack of Harry
Smith's "Heaven and Earth Magic". I've noticed the
prints out there (maybe the video from Mystic Fire
too) have a soundtrack and I'm pretty damn sure its
not the beatles or butthole surfers... Did Smith
create it himself? It's been years since I've
seen/heard it - thankyou in advance. Hu
