Re: Lucifer Rising?

I know the School of the Art Institute of Chicago has multiple
versions of Lucifer in it's collection, including Anger's workprint.

They are listed as follows:
Lucifer rising. Chapter one: Magical surprise package from London. 1970.
Lucifer rising. War Department version. 1973.
Lucifer rising. Hand-tinted version. 1973.
Lucifer rising. Jimmy Page soundtrack version. 1973.
Lucifer rising. Work print. 1981.
Lucifer rising. Final definitive version. 1981.

The listings for the Hand-tinted and the War Department versions note
that the music is Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother.

I have only seen the prints of Magical Surprise Package, which I
cannot remember the sound for, and the Final version with the
Beausoleil soundtrack.

Hope this is helpful...
