The Manson Family got everyone together in early 1970 (including Bruce Davis then wanted by the FBI) in the Spahn Ranch saloon, to record music for Robert Hendrickson's MANSON film. This was the beginning of the Family Jams, but the original audio tapes remain buried in a vault.
Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids has released an unrelated album with the same title, but this is not to be confused with the Manson Family's album.
