Product Description

Almost Famous ~ Soundtrack

Amazon.com

Writer-director Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire, Say Anything, Singles) was a teenager when Rolling Stone magazine sent him out to write cover stories in the 1970s. Nearly 30 years later, Crowe tells the tale in satisfying fashion and extensive detail with Almost Famous, accompanied by a soundtrack that accurately reflects the time of his trial by fire. Led Zeppelin have never before licensed a performance to a soundtrack, so "That's the Way" earns the distinction. A live version of Lou Reed's "Waiting for the Man" performed by David Bowie in 1972 typifies the emerging underground glam movement. Classic rock from Simon & Garfunkel, Rod Stewart, Elton John, and Yes fill things out. Cat Stevens's "The Wind" is rescued from the Timberland commercial. Nancy Wilson of Heart contributes the original score (one track, "Lucky Trumble," featured here) and a track by the fictitious hard-rock band Stillwater, whose "Fever Dog" sounds like a lost track from the hard-rock-guitar wars of the 1970s. Add in tracks by garage-rock faves the Seeds, soul strutter Clarence Carter, and Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers Band and you've got an expansive collection of tunes to sift through. More than 50 songs are featured in the film. Next question: when's volume 2? --Rob O'Connor

1. At least one song from Crowe's wife, Nancy Wilson of Heart. "Jerry MacGuire" featured Sandy, on Singles she used the alias the Lovemongers.
2. An obscure Who track. Crowe clearly believes that if you multiply longevity by creativity, The Who are the greatest rock band of all time. He presents further evidence herein.
3. The rescue of a great ballad from obvilion to standard. With MacGuire, Crowe salvaged the bittersweet "Secret Garden" by Bruce Springsteen. Here, he does the same for the achingly tender "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John. (As a side note, there's a good chance this track could finally become a single, some 28 years after its release. With that, Elton could extend to 31 years his record of consecutive Top 40 singles.)
4. A brilliant and eclectic collection of tracks that you will grow to love.
Remember, this movie takes place circa 1973. We could have been subjected to Tony Orlando & Dawn, the Stories and Clint Holmes, or else yet another collection of Pink Floyd, Deep Purple and ELP. Instead, the songs have been carefully culled, mixing soul, pop and rock into a brilliant pastiche of the era.
This one's a keeper. And expect to see the movie in several Oscar categories too!

One of the great tributes of Famous is its ability to revive the innocence of these songs. I've heard (most of) them enough times as background music, without context or concentration, that they turned to plastic; Cat Stevens and Elton John, in particular. The genius of the movie is that they are all forgiven of their detours, the cache of bad memories is cleared and the songs are reborn. It's like the first time you (anxiously, carefully) set the needle to the vinyl.
If you enjoyed the movie this will continue its vein until you can see it again. You will sit in front of your stereo and do nothing else but listen. Yep, it will set you free.

I don't know if anyone's interested anymore, but I made a list of all of the songs that appeared in the movie. It's not perfect, and at the end of the list, there are a few other songs that were in the closing credits, but I don't know when they were played in the movie...
The Chipmunk Song - The Chipmunks
The Oogum Boogum Song - Brenton Wood
America - Simon and Garfunkel
Sparks - The Who
Search and Destroy - Iggy Pop
Paranoid - Black Sabbath
Teacher - Jethro Tull
Roundabout - Yes (not sure)
I've Seen All Good People: Your Move - Yes
Feel Flows - The Beach Boys
River - Joni Mitchell
Fever Dog - Stillwater
Sweet Leaf - Black Sabbath
Every Picture Tells A Story - Rod Stewart
Small Time Blues - Pete Droge
Something In The Air - Thunderclap Newman
