Taking Off is the soundtrack to the 1971 movie "Taking Off" directed by Miloš Forman and starring Lynn Carlin, Buck Henry and Georgia Engel. It includes two future artists in brief appearances: Kathy Bates (listed as Bobo Bates in the credits) and Carly Simon, both as auditioning singers. Bates sings "And Even The Horses Had Wings" and Simon sings "Long Term Physical Effects". The album was published only on vinyl and is currently out of print and hard to obtain. Includes the songs by Ike and Tina Turner and the infamous Mary Mitchell performance of "Ode to a Screw."
