If film and music fans sometimes wonder why soundtracks are often little more than pastiches of past pop hits and chart flavors of the moment, it's largely due to the blockbuster success of releases like this collection from 1987's surprise Patrcik Swayze/Jennifer Grey romantic hit. The film's retro-romantic concerns came shrewdly wrapped in a (largely manufactured) dance craze conceit tailor-made for such pop chestnuts as the Ronettes' "Be My Baby," the Zodiacs' "Stay," and the Five Satins' "In the Still of the Night." Mickey and Sylvia once again argued that "Love Is Strange"--if not quite as strained as Swayze's own attempt at balladry, "She's Like the Wind." Eric Carmen's "Hungry Eyes" showcased the former Raspberries leader to good effect, but the real soundtrack sweepstakes winner here was the Jennifer Warnes/Bill Medley duet "(I've Had) The Time of My Life." That performance not only won the Best Original Song Oscar the following year, but became one of the era's most performed songs and a ubiquitous radio staple. --Jerry McCulley

No one can deny that Dirty Dancing contained great music that really made you want get up and have some fun. This colledtion combines both soundtrack albums released (Dirty Dancing / More Dirty Dancing) with a few bonus tracks previously not available and a small booklet.
Of the bonus tracks, only the extended movie version of "Time Of My Life" is worth much intrest. It's a bit odd that the radio version isn't included as well, but it is nice to hear the full length song for once. The other bonus tracks are instrumental versions of "Time Of My Life" that are actually excerpts from the score instead of full length dubs. One runs 41 seconds, the other 58 seconds. My one real gripe with the set is that the total running time of both CD's is just about 75 minutes. That's just enough to fit on one disc and should have been done to save the consumer some money. Also it would've been nice to have the songs presented in the order they appeared in the film.
The discs are stored in the front and back flaps of a hard bound CD book with a 24 page booklet between them. The booklet has many stills from the film (most retouched through a colored filter) and a few behind the scenes shots as well. I would've liked to see a directors note or an overview of the "Dirty Dancing" phenomonon, but overall the packaging is done very well and only enhaces the feel of a special collectors item.
I've awarded four stars because there's just not enough offered for someone who already owns both soundtracks and is not a manic fan of the film like myself.

If you enjoyed the movie Dirty Dancing, you will love the soundtrack. This cd is one that can change your mood with just a minute of listening. If you are not having a very upbeat day and you listen to any of the songs found on this cd you will often find yourself tapping your feet or snapping you fingers to the beat. Each of the songs have a different tempo, and each one can meet the mood you are in. The musical style also varies from song to song. Personally, I love this soundtrack and it is one that i play a lot. Everyone I have recommended this cd to also finds it very enjoyable. The songs are not "hard rock" but yet the are not "classical". It has a variety of all time good songs. If you are looking for a cd that can put you in an upbeat mood instantly, go get Dirty Dancing.

For ages, I've put off getting the second soundtrack to Dirty Dancing, purely because most of the good tracks on the original. And then with the Ultimate Dirty Dancing DVD, PACKED with extras, they go and release this. Well, obviously, a big Dirty Dancing fan is going to get both. We're not stupid - well, maybe. But this is a must-have for any Dirty Dancing fan.
This has all the tracks on one CD, better than switching back and forth between CDs just to hear a particular track. They are all on one CD now, and in the order they appeared in the movie. Well, according to some reviews, they may not be, but who cares?
Some of the best tracks are on this CD, from "Hungry Eyes" to "Love Is Strange" to "She's Like The Wind" (who says actors can't sing?) and of course, who could forget, the song that practically made this movie - "I've Had The Time Of My Life".
You will not regret getting this album. It's a collector's item, along with the DVD, has some great behind the scenes photos in the insert.

Where in the world can you get such a great combination of old and new and enjoy it so much? That's what this soundtrack offers: a little bit of something for everyone. Again, the movie without the soundtrack would have just been a movie - but it's the music that made it a hit. Another "must own" soundtrack!

Dirty Dancing brings back many good memories. It truly is a wonderful film in that it does'nt come across as a routine, sloppy production like so many love stories can be. What compliments the ethos of the film is the sizzling soundtrack. The story in the film is set in the 1960's though the majority of it's soundtrack are tracks recorded in the 1980's and they do admitedly sound very distinctive to that era but never the less it still makes for a tremendously enjoyable soundtrack. I've Had The Time Of My Life is a song that forever will be associated with Dirty Dancing and it's an absolutley magnificent recording at that. as the song plays you almost visualise the triumphant climax of the film where Patrick swayze and Jennifer grey do some electricifying dancing. Be my Baby is a fantastic soul classic sung by the highly underated group, The Ronettes where as Patrick Swayze surprisingly puts in a stunning and powerful performance on the breathtakingly beautiful, She's Like's The Wind. Hungry Eyes is another stand out track. With it's beautiful musical arrangements and a fabulous performance from Eric Carmen, the tack is quite simply a classic - a vastly underated one1 Every track on here is an absolute clasic with main highlights being glorious soul classics like Stay by William and Maurice, the silly butfun Love Is Strange, Overload and more contemporary recordings like the swinging, Yes and the totally magnificent, Where Are You Tonight? Superb recordings all round from an equally superb, classic movie. Highly Recommended!
