I got the Laurel Canyon Soundtrack and sort of put it aside and never listened to it, just being content having a part of the movie that I adore. Recently, however, I took it out of its case, brought it out to my little car, put it in the CD player, and listened to it on my way to work.
Boy, I was glad that I did.
The weather here has just turned to summer. With my windows rolled down, I turned up the music, and it really felt like summer. I'm not saying that if you buy this CD, you will embody the spirit of summer. Rather, it's a great CD to play during the season (and out of, too).
The music reminds me of, namely, Laurel Canyon the movie - a place that is eternally steamily warm and beautiful. Moreover, you can definitely tell that the music is from an arthouse, independent film, ranging from pop, to psychadelic, to fictitous, to French, to mellow. Definitely an original mix. You will be surprised by each and every song on the disc.
I definitely recommend if you enjoyed the film.
