2001 - A Space Odyssey OST
I saw the film at the cinema, tripping. I saw Ice Station Zebra when I was tripping too. It was a thing then that if we had money we'd go and watch a film when we were tripping, because it's so weird, better than just sitting in a flat. 2001 was a new world, space exploration began in my childhood. It was a fantasy before then that was becoming a reality, and then you had this amazing soundtrack to it. I was into classical music but I couldn't buy any because we didn't have any money, but students who had the grants, they had money, so they used to buy a lot records, and everybody shared. It was a sharing lifestyle - sounds idyllic doesn't it?
