Soundtrack audio files
These songs were recorded for the film in 1991, performed by Bob Dyer, Dave Para, Cathy Barton and Forrest Rose. The first six tracks have been remastered from the original tapes. Tapes for the remaining tracks are missing, so they are lower quality, and the last track is pulled from Bob Dyer's album, "Songteller" and used with permission of Big Canoe Records. See the Soundtrack page for musician bios.
