The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle [Version B] (1979/1993) Virgin Records

A The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle az azonos című film filmzenei albuma. Habár a Sex Pistols neve alatt jelent meg, más előadók közreműködésével készült.
A filmzenei album felvételeire az együttes már feloszlott, Johnny Rotten pedig elutasította a közreműködést, így a “valódi” Sex Pistols-dalok énekét korábbi felvételekből vágták rá a Paul Cook és Steve Jones által rögzített zenére.
A duplalemezen sok dal hallható, amelyen Rotten egyáltalán nem működött közre, ezek nagy része az együttes felbomlása után íródott és készült. Ezek közé tartoznak Sid Vicious feldolgozásai, két új dal (Silly Thing és Lonely Boy), Ronie Biggs-szel rögzített dalok, a címadó dal és a Who Killed Bambi?, valamint néhány újdonság (köztük az Anarchy in the UK francia utazenészek előadásában és a Sex Pistols-dalainak feldolgozása).
1978 májusa és júliusa két dalt rögzítettek a Lonely Boy és a Silly Thing mellett: a Black Leather-t és a Here We Go Again-t. Ezek ugyan sem a filmbe, sem a lemezre nem kerültek fel, később megjelentek kislemezen.
A The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle albumon Rotten mellett a következő emberek énekelnek:
Paul Cook – Silly Thing (1978)
Steve Jones – Lonely Boy, The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle, Friggin’ In The Riggin és a Silly Thing kislemezváltozata (1978)
Ronnie Biggs – No One is Innocent, Belsen Was a Gas (1978)
Malcolm McLaren – You Need Hands (1979)
Edward Tudor-Pole – Rock Around the Clock, Who Killed Bambi (1979)
Sid Vicious – My Way, C’mon Everybody, Something Else (1978)
Az album több, egymástól dalsorrendben különböző változatban jelent meg. Két főbb változat ismert, ezek dupla nagylemez és CD kiadásban jelentek meg. A két változat dalai közti legnagyobb különbség, hogy a dalokat újrahangszerelték, továbbá míg az A változat az I Wanna Be Me dalt és az Anarchy in the UK Dave Goodman által készített változatát tartalmazza, addig a B változaton a Watcha Gonna Do About It és az Anarchy in the UK Chris Thomas által készített változata szerepel. 1992-ig az A változat volt az elterjedtebb, ezt követően a B változat terjedt el. Emellett megjelent egy egylemezes változat is eltérő borítóval és kevesebb dallal.

The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle is the soundtrack album of the film of the same name by the Sex Pistols.
By the time the soundtrack was being prepared, Johnny Rotten (Lydon) had left the band and 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 rerecording their instrumental tracks (done by Paul Cook and Steve Jones).
The double album features a significant number of tracks that omit Lydon entirely, most of them written and recorded after he had left the band. These include Sid Vicious singing cover songs, two new original songs (“Silly Thing”, sung by Cook and “Lonely Boy”, sung by Jones), tracks Cook and Jones recorded with Ronnie Biggs, the title track and “Who Killed Bambi?” sung by Edward Tudor-Pole, and numerous novelty tracks including French street musicians playing “Anarchy in the UK” and a medley of several Sex Pistols songs covered by a disco band.
Two further tracks were recorded along with “Lonely Boy” and “Silly Thing” between May and July 1978; “Black Leather” and “Here We Go Again”. While the two songs did not end up on either the film or the soundtrack, both were later released on a 7″ single as part of the Sex Pistols “Pistols Pack” 6 single plastic wallet collection (released as a box set in Greece), as well as on the Japanese “The Very Best Of Sex Pistols” LP.
Along with Rotten, people who sang on The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle include:
Paul Cook – lead vocals on “Silly Thing” (1978), backing vocals on “The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle” (1979)
Steve Jones – lead vocals on “Lonely Boy”, backing vocals on “The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle”, lead vocals on “Friggin’ in the Riggin” and lead vocals on the single release of “Silly Thing” (1978)
Ronnie Biggs – lead vocals on “No One Is Innocent”, “Belsen Vos a Gassa” (1978)
Malcolm McLaren – lead vocals on “You Need Hands” (1979)
Edward Tudor-Pole – lead vocals on “Rock Around the Clock”, “Who Killed Bambi”, “The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle”, (1979)
Sid Vicious – lead vocals on “My Way”, “C’mon Everybody”, “Something Else” (1978)
The album has been released in different variations featuring different track listings. There have been two main versions, which were featured on double-album vinyl and CD. The biggest differences between the track lists is that the songs are re-arranged and version A features “I Wanna Be Me” and the Dave Goodman produced version of “Anarchy in the UK” while version B features “Watcha Gonna Do About It” and the Chris Thomas produced version of “Anarchy in the UK”. Version A was the most common track list until 1992, afterwards version B is the most common. A 2012 reissue by Universal incorporates both track lists, as it features the Version A track list with “Watcha Gonna Do About It” added on to the end.
Additionally, a single-album version was released in May 1980 to tie in with the release of the film, and featured a different cover and a pared-down track list, which excluded all of Johnny Rotten’s tracks. Early releases came with a copy of the original movie poster.
