Spinal Tap A to Zed

Spinal Tap—The Original Soundtrack Recording from the Motion Picture "This is Spinal Tap" (Polydor, 1984): Rated A- by Entertainment Weekly, which called it "more of a greatest-hits package than a bold step forward. Still, many tunes are given live treatments, and all in all, this release remains an irreplaceable document of the band’s evolution from raw potential to irreversible deafness." The album did include one previously unreleased tune, "America," that Nigel wrote during the 1982 tour.
