Product Description


One of the greatest ironies surrounding This Is Spinal Tap is that it's actually better than many of the recordings it parodies. Songs like "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight," "Hell Hole," "Heavy Duty," and even "Stonehenge" are fun, 1980s-style rockers that any closet hair-band fan will enjoy, and "Sex Farm" and "Big Bottom" are simply hilarious by any standard. There's also the hippie-drippy "Listen to Me (the Flower People)" (even funnier if you've seen Rob Reiner's film of the same title), although Michael McKean and Christopher Guest singing "Cry, Cry, Cry All the Way Home" is sadly absent. The CD does lose some of its entertainment value if you haven't seen the film, but its mix of comedy and unabashed pop metal makes it the perfect party album. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Cover! May 21 2004
By Aaron
Format:Audio CD
Spinal Tap the movie is an all-time great comedy. Listening to the songs in full, you can "channel" these great characters for great laughs... and great music period! For a good laugh *today*, look next to the Spinal Tap cover picture (on this webpage), and click on "see larger picture." :-).
St. Hubbins: This is the demo cover, right?!
Manager: No, this is it, this is the cover.
Nigel: I see... it's black. Yes... you look at it and say, "How much more black could it be?" And the answer is, "None. None more black."
These days, Spinal Tap could probably get away with the original cover, as described by the publicist (Fran Drescher): "A woman on all fours, greased up, with a dog collar around her neck, and a man's glove in her face, asking her to smell the glove?!!"
St. Hubbins: We're *making fun* of that stuff! I mean, if we were serious, I'd see your point. But we don't *really* want her to smell the glove!
Nigel: Yes we do.
St. Hubbins: Well, I mean, not *over and over*!
Okay... I'm just quoting the movie, and almost every line is quote out loud funny. The DVD is the same price as the cd, so I would highly recommend getting the movie first... and the cd second -- nothing else is "more black!"
A quick funny story: In an interview, Harry Shearer and Michael McKean discussed recent Spinal Tap concerts. The two, and Christopher Guest, dress up as their "A Mighty Wind" characters (folk group "The Folksmen" )-- and open for themselves! The topper? The fans boo The Folksmen off the stage!! The group goes backstage, changes gear, and kicks it as - "direct from Hell" - Spinal Tap!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crank It To 11! March 13 2004
By Barry
Format:Audio CD
I pondered wether or not to write this review as a parody. As if the band were real. To go along with the movie. Nah. What was a great parody in film, is also a great parody in music. And just like the movie and some reviews there, I am surprised, and somewhat bemused, when people think that it was real. The movie and the music that is included here on this CD. It just goes to show how perfectly Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, Harry Shearer, and Rob Reiner achieved their goal of trying to make it seem real and come off that way. A lot of people were duped, and still are to this day. The music isn't bad at all, even if it tries to be at times. There are sounds in Spinal Tap's music that sound like The Who and Led Zeppelin and others. Proudly boasting themselves as England's loudest band ever, the guys don't disappoint on this nostalgic trip back to a brilliant movie and a time when music was just fun. Guest, McKean, and Shearer all wrote the music on this disc and that's another great plus for their talent. They wrote the music and played their own instruments. These guys are dedicated to their craft. And still are, especially if you have seen "A Mighty Wind". The band members of Spinal Tap consisted of David St. Hubbins(McKean), who is the band's vocalist and one of two main guitarists. Nigel Tuffnel(Guest), is the other lead guitarist of the band, and Derek Smalls(Shearer), is the band's bass player. Being in the band isn't easy as they have gone through 37 musicians in their history. They began life as The Originals, before becoming Spinal Tap, and the music here gives an overall view of their "hits" and their "sound". The earliest is "Listen To Me(The Flower People)", a trippy little '60's song that is a complete 180 from the remainder of the album. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A rock n' roll milestone Oct. 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Beatles. The Rolling Stones. Led Zeppelin. Pink Floyd. Black Sabbath. Spinal Tap are all too often excluded from this list.
Why their original albums are so difficult to come by these days is a mystery. It's a real shame for those young listeners who may never know the incredible energy of this wonderful band, one of the greatest, biggest, loudest bands rock n' roll ever knew. David St. Hubbins' presence and charisma, Nigel Tufnel's explosive guitar (with his trademark amplifiers in which all the dials went all the way up to eleven), Derek Smalls' creative and groundbreaking basslines. But for those who missed out on masterpiece albums like Intervenus de Milo, Shark Sandwich, The Gospel According to Spinal Tap and even the more recent comeback album Smell The Glove, this collection, inspired by Marty DeBergi's 1980s documentary film of Tap's comeback tour of the US, should give a general idea of the range of one of the most influential groups in modern rock.
A history of Spinal Tap's career is essentially a history of rock n' roll, and the collection covers every aspect of their long career, from the hard 12-bar blues of 1965's 'Gimme Some Money', performed when Tap were still the Thamesmen (with drummer Joe 'Stumpy' Pepys), through the memorable Summer of Love anthem '(Listen To The) Flower People' (with drummer Peter James Bond), through their conceptual period with 'Rock n' Roll Creation' and the mystic epic 'Stonehenge' to heavy metal classics like 'Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight' and 'Hell Hole', ending with the more sophisticated and mature 80s approach with the hit single 'Sex Farm'. Every song is a gem. Each and every one clearly shows Spinal Tap's huge influence on rock n' roll and heavy metal.
What next, then? I'd like to see a Spinal Tap anthology.
