The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, released in 1979, is actually the soundtrack to the film of the same name. The band was defunct by the time the soundtrack was being prepared and Johnny Rotten refused to participate in the project, so the 'proper' Sex Pistols tracks were done by taking Lydon's vocals from the October 1976 demo session recordings and re-recording their instrumental tracks.

The album features a significant number of tracks that omit Lydon entirely; most of them written and recorded after the band broke up. The album features cover songs, two original songs, and numerous novelty tracks including French street musicians playing "Anarchy In the U.K." plus a medley of several Sex Pistols songs covered by a disco band.

Housed in a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 1/2" hinged-lid box which includes inside a Mini LP Jacket faithfully replicating the first pressing UK LP artwork, full color Mini Insert LP sleeve and booklet with English/Japanese lyrics. The obi surrounding the album replicates the one included in the Japanese first pressing LP.

  • Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection.
  • Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes.

SHM-SACD format is fully compatible with standard SACD players but it does not play on standard CD players. SHM-SACD delivers unbelievably high-quality sound. Japanese import.
