To eliminate any confusion, it is The Story of L.A. Woman DVD. The references to Chopin is near the end on the section that describes Hyacinth House.

Thanks for the references to Chopin and Weill. I would guess that you already have the 1980's CD called Lost in the Stars- The Music of Kurt Weill. It features tracks by a very diverse set of singers from Sting, Van Dyke Parks, Lou reed, Tom Waits, Aaron Neville, Todd Rundgren, and Marrianne Faithful.

In the album notes, Lotte Lenya (Weill's wife and collaborator) is said to have loved the Doors version of Alabama Song. Weill died in 1950 before Rock and Roll got off the ground. The notes also refer to Weill and Brecht as the original Glimmer Twins.

Anyway, if you don't have it you should add it to your collection
