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.
We rented the movie Laurel Canyon recently and I was immediately struck by the music. The opening tune by Mercury Rev (In A Funny Way) is as good as anything I've heard recently. The Butthole Surfers song (Good Time)is an edgy gem. Scapegoat Wax (Crawling)adds even more atmosphere.
Also included were seventies goodies by T-Rex (Planet Queen), Steely Dan (Do It Again) and Lee Michaels (Do You Know What I Mean). Even an Eartha Kitt song is thrown in for good measure!
All the ingredients work here. If you saw the movie I think you'll agree. This is by far one of the better soundtracks to come out in some time.
I bought the DVD and the soundtrack and probably listened to "In A Funny Way" 20x or more. What a great sound.
It makes me want to chuck it all and move to Laurel Canyon.
There's some other songs from the 70's and the new stuff that the "group" in the movie performed.
A great CD for the car...or when you're feeling disconnected from it all.

I ordered this CD strictly because of the track listing I saw here. Unfortunately, it is not accurate. Several of the tracks you see here are not on the actual CD. Read morePublished on May 6 2003 by pamela a crews
