Cale wrote "Sanctus" for the Randy Warshaw Dance Company in 1987,[2] "Animals at Night" for the Ralph Lemon Dance Company in the same year, and "Primary Motive" for Daniel Adams' film Primary Motive. "Booker T." was recorded live by The Velvet Underground at the Gymnasium club in New York in April 1967.
