Preachers And Poets and Scholars Don't Know It


Former Animals Keyboardist Alan Price didn't just contribute songs to the three hour Lindsay Anderson film O Lucky Man!. He appears in the film, playing himself, commenting like a Greek Chorus on the misadventures of Malcolm McDowell's coffee salesman. (Not dissimilar to the way Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye appear in Cat Ballou.)

Despite the brief running time ( 24:43), Price's soundtrack is one of the decade's best.
