A very good collection which served as a soundtrack for the film "Sid & Nancy". The musical styles are different but there are artists with very prestige such as: Joe Strummer, Circle Jerks, John Cale, The Pogues, Pray for Rain, Steve Jones and 2 tracks sung by Gary Oldman hymself, who made it very well frankely. This is an album with nothing to do with the Sex Pistols (strictly musical) but is quite curious and music has high quality. Good songs.

This is the first and during a lot of years only one recording in live about SID VICIOUS USA tour. It was made and distributed by "Virgin Records" and was accompanied by 2 posters as a promo, here below you can see the 2 pics. With years has appeared many different covers for this "Sid sings" but the official according to "Virgin Records" is this. The quality sound is medium, not bad in fact, and we can appreciate that in reality Sid Vicious wasn´t too much good musician nor singer. The songs are good because almost all are cover of classics such as: Iggy Pop, The Stooges, Johnny Thunders, etc. SID VICIOUS was in reality John Simon Ritchie-Beverely (May 10, 1957 – February 2, 1979), better known as SID VICIOUS, was an English punk rock musician and member of the band the Sex Pistols. He died of a heroin overdose at the age of 21.

This audio is unofficial and neverr released as CD or any format, this just an extract of the songs which are the soundtrack. "Who Killed Nancy?" (also known as Who Killed Nancy) is a british documentary film directed by Alan G. Parker. The movie was produced by Ben Timlett and Christine Alderson. It had its US theatrical opening at the Cinema Village in New York City on 30 July 2010. The film examines the possibility that it was not Sid Vicious who was responsible for the death of Nancy Spungen. On October 12th 1978 New York Police discovered the lifeless body of a 20 year-old woman, slumped under the bathroom sink in a hotel room. She was dressed in her underwear and had bled to death from a stab wound. The woman was Nancy Spungen, an ex-prostitute, sometimes stripper, heroin addict, and girlfriend of Sex Pistols' bassist Sid Vicious. In a trial by tabloid newspapers Vicious was pronounced guilty before noon the following day. But the case never had the chance to be brought to trial, and a number of New York cops weren't convinced. Less than six months later in a flat in New York's Greenwich Village, Sid, himself aged only 21, died of a heroin overdose. For the next 28 years the assumption was that Sid did it - case closed. Over time, the death of Sid and Nancy has passed into rock legend and has only added to the controversial and notorious image of the Sex Pistols and punk music. At the request of Sid's mother, who committed suicide in 1996, rock author and punk expert Alan Parker has devoted himself to discovering what really happened in room 100. Parker has re-interviewed 182 people, re-examined NYPD evidence, and gone back to his original interviews with Sid's mother - Written by Ed Barratt.
