The Great Rock And Roll Swindle soundtrack album of the film of the same name by Julien Temple. Following the end of the US tour the Pistols had gone their seperate ways. Lydon left the group entirely and refused to participate. The tracks featuring Johnny’s vocals were taken from earlier demo versions with the backing tracks re-recorded by Paul and Steve. The remaining tracks, original songs and covers, on the album were written and recorded in 1978 and feature a number of guest singers, including Sid Vicious, Ronnie Biggs, and Malcolm McLaren amongst others.
