Product Description

Product Description

Import smash soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's 1994 film starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman and Bruce Willis. Contains classics like Urge Overkill's cover of 'Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon', Dusty Springfield 'Son of a Preacher Man' and many more. Universal. 2008.

Dick Dale's surf-guitar provided the memorable title theme ("Misirlou"), for Quentin Tarantino's 1994 smash, and although that sound runs throughout the soundtrack (along with bits and pieces of dialogue from the movie), this is a pretty eclectic bunch of really terrific songs. I don't know how it all manages to hang together, but it does (you might say the same for the interwoven stories in the movie). Where else are you going to find Chuck Berry, Maria McKee, Al Green, The Statler Brothers, Kool & the Gang, Urge Overkill (singing a Neil Diamond ballad!), Ricky Nelson, Dusty Springfield, and the Tornadoes (among others)on one album? McKee's beautiful "If Love is a Red Dress (Hang Me in Rags)" is a standout, partly because it's less familiar. One of the few soundtracks of the '90s that went into the CD player and stayed there for weeks and months thereafter. --Jim Emerson --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

I purchased this soundtrack for my teen son who at the time was a major P.F. fan. There was nothing wrong with the quality, etc. but it played only once as background music. He wants to hear the music while watching the movie, again.

The initial release of the "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack was every bit as innovative as the film itself; after it was released to generally positive reviews everyone suddenly had to have snippets of film dialogue interspersing the songs featured in (or inspired by) their movies and Quentin Tarantino completed his video store clerk's revenge by being able to credibly claim to be influencing not only film for the last half of the 1990's but also film sountrack production as well.
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...

"Pulp Fiction" wasn't the first movie whose mood grew from the pop songs that became its soundtrack. E.g., "American Graffiti" found motivation in popular music much earlier, providing a huge boost to '50s music nostalgia. "Pulp Fiction" helped fuel a popular resurgence of surf music, but more importantly, it was the film whose director spent a great deal of time discussing his music-inspired methodology. At the time of the film's release, Quentin Tarantino consumed numerous interview inches discoursing on his technique for drawing a film from his record collection.
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.

Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction soundtrack gives you a nice overview of some bluesy, rock songs, but it also includes some of the best dialogues from the film, interspersed or even mixed into the music tracks. The only problem, I see, however, is that the songs are not arranged in the most optimal of orders, and that, sometimes, the dialogues take away from the music and can disrupt any sort of mood the music might be creating. It is definitely a soundtrack--when listening to it, you feel as if you are overhearing the film running in another room. That is nice, but then, if you want to hear the film, why don't you just sit down and watch it? The dialogues are good, of course, but soundtracks are meant to be about MUSIC--it seems to me that Tarantino is a little cocky in thinking that the music doesn't say as much without his words playing along with it. He's too worried about making sure the music and the soundtrack runs as the film does, and not about the music and the soundtrack playing smoothly--despite the arrangement. If this soundtrack were just music, you would still have the feel of Pulp Fiction, the movie. Anyhow, the music is good and the dialogues are good, I'm trying to say, but not as good together, on a compact disc, as they are in the film.

I absolutely love the music from "Pulp Fiction." Many of the songs feel so integral to the scenes, such as Bruce Willis singing along to "Flowers on the Wall," just before he runs into the very man he desperately needs to avoid. Hearing Dick Dale's surf-music theme "Misirlou" puts me instantly in the mood to see the movie again, no matter how recently I just watched it. Urge Overkill's rendition of "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon" was phenomenally paired with Uma Thurman's experiments with John Travolta's heroin.
But as much as I love the movie and the music, this collection leaves something to be desired. The "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack contains an interesting mix of lots of fun songs, and is fun to listen to. I would give the collection of music 5 stars, and the organization of the CD (discussed below) 1 star--hence my 4-star compromise.
My biggest objection is that the dialogue snippets just interrupt the flow of the CD. And some of the dialogue selections, in my book, aren't even the most memorable exchanges in the movie. For instance, instead of giving us Samuel L. Jackson's wonderful "Say 'WHAT?' again" exchange before blasting his victim, we get the Jack Rabbit Slim's rather inane dance competition introduction. The Royale with Cheese and the discussion about eating pork work fine. The "Zed's Dead, Baby" discussion, while enjoyable in the movie, doesn't work as well when cut out of context. In reality, if the producers of the soundtrack wanted to include movie dialogue, they could have included the Ezekiel quote at the beginning on the soundtrack, and then left off the rest.
Don't get me wrong. I have enjoyed ways that other soundtracks departed from being a strictly musical experience.
