Review

A fantastic re-issue of the classic sountrack to the strangest, campiest, most titilating Russ Meyer film ever, Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls!

Music composed and arranged by the great Stu Phillips (Battlestar Galactica, Knight Rider) with performances by the influential psychedelic band Strawberry Alarm Clock plus The Sandpipers and more!

Lead vocals for BVD s all girl band, Carrie Nations, was provided by the stunningly talented Lynn Carey!

Own a piece of campy, cult film history! --Cleopatra Records

Carey's vocals resemble early Cher with a lot of deeper soul mixed in.
Daniel J. Hamlow
Unfortunately, the Carrie Nations were not a real band, but they sure sounded as good as any real band i have ever listened to.
Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ
All and all, a great soundtrack to a movie that has to be seen -- more than once -- to be believed.

One of the things that made Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls a groovy movie was the soundtrack, that 60's psychedelic pop and the songs done by the girl group Kelly Affair/Carrie Nations. I was miffed that it was unavailable until I discovered that a special edition had been issued this year. A quick look at the titles made me raise my fist in triumph, as I recognized the songs.
The main title sequence has the opening music from the start of the movie conjoined with bits of the title theme sung by the Sandpipers. The mostly instrumental title theme is included later.
OK, the Carrie Nation songs. "Find It" and "Sweet Talking Candyman" are two upbeat psychedelic power-pop numbers, and there are two versions for reasons I'll explain later. My favorite Carrie Nation songs are the Beatle-ish/Mamas and Papas flower-power of "Come With The Gentle People" and the mid-paced ballad "In The Long Run." The former exudes an extended hand of welcome and peace. Message here is: "help us to light the way/and let us free the people who are hung up and who are afraid/love can be a way of life if you open up the door/love can overcome the fear and life can be so much more." I was definitely born in the wrong decade. The second is curious in that there's a slap at flower power: "The sweet smell of clover won't make the world over/you spend idle hours talking to flowers who won't even talk back to you." More love than flower power in the chorus: "in the long run, you'll need someone to trust and count on/somewhere along the way/in the long run, will there be someone that you can lean on, come a rainy day?" However, there is room for a world that can be imagined instead of what already is: "If you find a world that's enchanting/it's up to you to start expanding.

Recent reissue, of the original twelve track lp that's been expanded to twenty-five cuts. Maybe a bit over done, but still worth owning a copy of. Decent job on the soundtrack of the over-the-top Russ Meyer's 1970 chick flick. Tunes I liked best were Carrie Nation's "Look On Up At The Bottom", "In The Long Run", "Find It" and especially the uptempo "Sweet Talkin' Candy Man" along with Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Girl From The City". Check this disc out for yourself when you can. A should-have.

Lynn Carey's throaty crooning alone makes this worth buying. It's a huge cd, topping out at around 25 tracks. You get every original "Carrie Nations" song plus some tracks from The Strawberry Alarmclock, and all of the "groovy" instrumentals you hear in the film. There is another soundtrack out there, an import, but it's not worth it. You don't get everything you get on this one. This is the way to go.

I love this Soundtrack album, especially "Come With the Gentle People." That "Green Acres"-style argument that Kelly and Harris have against the backdrop of L.A. visuals, then the transition to the mini-bus trip west singing "Gentle People" is my favorite part of the movie.

There are only two things wrong here. First, another of my favorite songs, "In the Long Run," sounds different on the album as opposed to the movie. It sounds like those other "1st Version" songs on this album, not what is used in the movie. Secondly, there is a serious omission. The background music used in the scene with Harris and Ashley driving in the Rolls Royce is missing! Strangely enough, the DVD uses this music as the background for the main menu display. Why isn't it here?

And, the Strawberry Alarm Clock offer two terrific rockers. It's nice to see them have their moment both in the movie and on the CD.

All and all, a great soundtrack to a movie that has to be seen -- more than once -- to be believed.
