Tangerine Dream – Tyger

For me, this manages to miss just about any sublimity of Blake’s original, but for any Tangerine Dream/Blake fans, the 1987 album Tyger would be essential listening.

“Jerusalem” from Peter Watkin’s 1967 film, Privilege, performed by the George Bean Group. In the movie, Paul Jones plays Steven Shorter, a pop star whose career is manipulated to launch a new form of religious nationalism. Genuinely strange.
