GET IT NOW!
There's lots of snippets of dialogue from the movie to start some of the tracks, so you know exactly where they appear in the movie. However, only a couple of these tracks are introduced like this - those being "Misirlou"; "Bullwinkle Part II"; "You Never Can Tell"; and "Comanche". Personally, I couldn't recognise these tracks by THOSE names if I tried - but if I were to tell you: "Pumpkin & Honey Bunny"; "Royale With Cheese"; "Zed's Dead, Baby"; "Jack Rabbit Slims Twist Contest"; and "Bring Out The Gimp, then you're clicking your fingers in recognition right? (Every one but the last one!) Some of the dialogue snippets are pretty much pointless. They need to be short and quick, and some of them are just too long, and you're desperate for the music to start playing.
For anyone who would like to hear Samuel L. Jackson's infamous quote, just before he's going to kill someone, the last track of this is a must for you! (Ezekiel 25:17) Go ahead and learn it off by heart, and then you can spout it to anyone you wish - and scare them witless.
One of the greatest songs on this has to be "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green. This was also featured in Down To You, but ISN'T for some strange reason on the soundtrack to that. (The song that Julia Stiles sings to Freddie Prinz Jnr in the college room)
I was not expecting to find a song by Maria McKee on this! But as with most soundtracks, there is normally a whole mixture of tunes thrown haphazardly in and normally none of them will match!
A great soundtrack to match a great film, and is a definite must-have for any soundtrack fan, or anyone who can't find certain songs on any other CD - this will have them.
The only trouble was that the original soundtrack CD, a complete blast to listen to under any circumstance, wasn't nearly as complete as it could have been. Most of the music from the "Jackrabbit Slim's" sequence was left off (most notably Link Wray's classic "Rumble", from the "uncomfortable silence" bit, made even more noticeable due to the, uh, uncomfortable silence).
This re-issue (sorry, "collector's edition") of the soundtrack, timed to co-ordinate with the re-issue of the previously bare-bones "Pulp Fiction" DVD in 2002 goes miles toward correcting this oversight, providing signature songs instantly recognizable from their respective scenes in the movie (assuming you've seen the movie as often as I have) and one, the Brothers Johnson classic cover of "Strawberry Letter #23" that I can't seem to recall from the movie to save my life...but it too is a welcome addition, completely in place with the rest of the songs.
It would have been nice to have added a couple more splices of film dialogue as well, but that's a piddling request in light of the very-badly needed material that finally makes its way onto the disc.
As for Tarantino's 16:09 "interview" that takes up the second disc, chances are you've heard it before...Read more ›
For those who didn't hear or read Tarantino's explanation the first time around, MCA's "Collector's Edition" soundtrack (issued to accompany the film's DVD reissue) adds a 16-minute "interview" (actually, a non-stop monolog), as well as four tracks left off the original CD. The extra songs are terrific, but expanding to two discs solely to accommodate the 1994 interview (disc one contains the music, disc two the interview) positions this more for Tarantino groupies than anyone else.
Those interested enough to sit through Tarantino's self-aggrandizing film-geek commentary (at least, more than once) will have already heard what he has to say. Those who just want to relive the film, and enjoy the music, are saddled with an extra disc at added cost. To be fair, the price increase also covers royalties for the four additional track, but the addition of an entire disc to convey an eight-year-old 16 minute Jolt-fueled ramble seems like a vanity project.
The four additional tracks (The Robins' "Since I First Met You," Link Wray's "Rumble," Brothers Johnson's "Strawberry Letter #23," and The Marketts' "Out of Limits") have been added to the end of the standard-issue track list.Read more ›
