I am envious, although I think I saw them at Canyon Cinematheque 20+
years ago with a pretty decent print. Cannot remember any commentary,
just the track.
One tends to think that Smith, also being a musicologist, knew what
he was doing with his track. Then again maybe is was just one of
those NY underground cavalier in the moment default decisions (eg.
ten years on the film, 2 minutes on the track).
