DMZ/Columbia will on April 8 release the soundtrack to the film "A Mighty Wind," which, as previously reported, stars "This Is Spinal Tap" principals Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer as the fictitious 1960s folk trio the Folksmen. The film, which opens April 16 in U.S. theaters, also stars Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, and Parker Posey, who have previously appeared with Guest and McKean in the satires "Waiting for Guffman" and "Best in Show."

"It deals with three folk acts that get together for a memorial concert at Carnegie Hall because a famous legendary folk manager has died," Guest told The Hollywood Reporter in January 2002. "These acts were active in the '60s but have been out of the business since the early '70s. They must now travel to New York to honor this man who has died and play the concert."

Levy and O'Hara star as the duo Mitch & Mickey, while Posey, David Alan Blasucci, John Michael Higgins, Jane Lynch, Christopher Moynihan, Steve Pandis, and Patrick Sauber portray the New Main Street Singers. The soundtrack album will feature the bonus Mitch & Mickey track "When You're Next to Me," which does not appear in the film.

A handful of the original songs performed by the cast in the film and on the soundtrack may be familiar to avid Spinal Tap fans, since the Folksmen served as the opening act on Spinal Tap's summer 2001 U.S. tour. Their cuts include "Old Joe's Place," "Blood on the Coal," and a hilarious cover of the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up." The Folksmen first appeared in 1992 home video "Return of Spinal Tap."

Here is the tracklist for the "A Mighty Wind" soundtrack:

"Old Joe's Place," the Folksmen
