Subject: RE: Help: 'I've Got To Know'

I heard that the director of Bob Roberts did not want the soundtrack released because the songs could then be heard out of the context of the movie and the message totally mis-represented.

On a related point, didn't Eric Bogle stop performing one of his songs because it got adopted by an extreme right group who totally missed the true point of the song.
