"Made with the assistance of Coca-Cola Bottlers Australia and the Australian Film Commission, the film Band on the Run appeared briefly and then vanished, as did the accompanying soundtrack LP earmarked for release by Festival Records in mid-1982. However, Festival Records "jumped the gun" somewhat and pressed up a limited number of "promotional" copies, some of which were distributed before the release was cancelled. Of the 13 selections included on the soundtrack LP, eight were supplied by The Tim Gaze Band who also appeared in the film performing their material. The connection that brought The Tim Gaze Band together with the film's director/producer Harry Hodge came via group member Peter Bolton's friendship with Wayne "Rabbit" Bartholomew, one of the "stars" of the film. "Rabbit" introduced Bolton and Gaze to Hodge and a deal was struck, the result of which was the group's contributions to Band on the Run." (label info)
