Jimmy Page "Lucifer Rising" {UK} (1973) (Psychadelic-Space)

We all make our misstakes....Maybe this one is Jimmy's biggest, the avantgarde film maker Kenneth Anger ask Jimmy to do a soundtrack to his movie Lucifer Rising. And he's asking the right guy. Back then Jimmy owned Aleister Crowleys house Boleskine in Scotland, he also got the second largest collection of bocks that Crowley have written. A dispute between Anger and Page made that Jimmy's soundtrack never were used. It only exists on rough cut of the film. Some people said that Mick Jagger is the one that made the soundtrack. Thats not true, Jagger was involved to make a soundtrack and it was Anger that inspired him to made "Sympathy for the devil". But Jagger thought the satanic aura had been to much. Finaly (I think thats correct) Bobby Beausoleil (later a friend to Charles Manson) did the soundtrack. In 1980 Anger sold the the movie and the soundtrack to a collector. That made a clear blue 12" vinyl and released it on Berleskin Records in 1000 copys.
This is not the best OST that exists but if you are collecting Led Zeppelin and related stuff this is something for you. If Tangerine Dream would been a garage band this is have they would how sounded. I have seen the movie it's not so good I have to say but the music its pretty good.

Lets get ready for 23 min of evil!

Great post! BTW: in a way, it is true about Jagger, his music did not make the 'Lucifer Rising' film eventually, but was used as the soundtrack to another film by Anger, 'Invocation of my Demon Brother' (i.e. what was left of the original 'Lucifer Rising'). And Page has a small part in the final 'Lucifer Rising'. Also, he helped Anger out with Anger's 2002 film 'The Man We Want to Hang' (it's in the credits). I guess their relationship isn't as bad as they say ...

Wow, really interesting! I have been loving Beausoleil's version since it was uploaded at PNF last year and I finally downloaded the movie last week. So, let's compare this with the other one.
