[cover art]

[LP cover] [Back cover]

Original soundtrack album from the 1989 movie New York Stories, about three stories happening in New York. The story titled Life Lessons, directed by Martin Scorsese, is about a painter who falls in love with his models. The fantasy story Life without Zoe from Francis Coppola is about a little rich girl who tries to reconciliate her parents, and the third story, Oedipus Wrecks is a Woody Allen comedy about a jew who cannot get rid of his mother, even after her death.

A Tour 74 version of "Like A Rolling Stone" with Bob Dylan and The Band, probably the same as on Before the Flood, can be heard in the Martin Scorsese segment.
