"Stuck in the Middle With You" and "You Never Can Tell" now induce indelible visual images that have little to do with Steealer's Wheel and Chuck Berry their respective creators. They've been co-opted (and, some might argue, corrupted) by Quentin Tarantino, arguably the most music-savvy of '90s filmmakers. The soundtrack to Tarantino's Jackie Brown is heavy on '70s R&B (Bobby Womack, Brothers Johnson, Bill Withers, Minnie Ripperton) studded with oddities (Johnny Cash singing "Tennessee Stud," a track from blaxploitation queen/Jackie Brown star Pam Grier), and snatches of hardboiled dialogue. --Steven Stolder

This is an excellent soundtrack collection, the songs for the film fit perfectly into the theme. If you're a fan of soul music, after seeing the film you'll probably immediately jump at the chance to own this soundtrack. That's where I was coming from.

Most of the songs that you hear from the film are all here. You can be sure that the stand out moments of the movie with their related music is all here. From the opening segment with Bobby Womack's "Across 110th Street", to "Inside My Love" and of course The Delfonics' "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time" which is almost the theme song for the movie. This is not purely a soul soundtrack, although Johnny Cash's "Tennessee Stud" is a welcome inclusion (especially relating back to the film), but the last two tracks might make most expecting pure soul just end the disc. No matter the tracks included are nothing to argue with, except possibly the inclusion of Foxy Brown's "Letter To the Firm". As a rap fan, this is a horrible inclusion, it shows up in the movie for like 10 seconds when Max is in the music store (you could have inserted any song here, just a waste).

My only other problem with the soundtrack is that it did not give me everything I wanted or expected. With the disc only running 51 min. with the skits it really could have been done better. The Supremes' "Baby Love" is missing as is Jermaine Jackson's "My Touch of Madness" (which is pretty hard to get a hold of), and most notably The Delfonics "La-La (Means I Love You)". Also, if you have watched the DVD you'll no doubt be trying to figure out the infectious tune played during the menu's: it's The Meter's "Cissy Strut", also not included. In addition, none of the music that serves as the score is included here.

We all know that soundtracks are often questionnable from a quality point of view, once separated from the film they support. Well, this is a marvellous exception !
Classic artists such as Bill withers, Brothers Johnson, the Delfonics or Randy Crawford really are great listening to again. Knowing that all those artists were at their peak in the sixties/seventies, this is indeed a great opportunity to discover them for those who weren't around at that time or just listened to other things then. Consider that most of the artists featured here either aren't in the showbusiness anymore (Brothers Johnson, Minnie Ripperton) or have lost a lot of gas (Randy Crawford). I, for instance, got to listen and like a lot Bloodstone's "Natural high" and Minnie Ripperton's "Inside my love" (I only knew from her the lyrical "Loving you") which made me eventually buy her "best of"...
The album also contains humour ("Beaumont's lament", a short dialog between Samuel Jackson and De niro, "Melanie, Simone and Sheronda", and "Just ask Melanie"), a cheesy "The lion and the cucumber" (but, there again, it is part of the joke) and a song from Foxy Brown. Finally, the closing track (sounds like The Shadows...) is very characteristic of any Tarantino film.
Overall, this is a non-pretentious and nice compilation of sounds of the late sixties/seventies that you will not regret having if you liked the film and/or the music that was in fashion 30 years ago.

The soundtrack to "Jackie Brown" is going to blow you away just like the film. Quentin's choices on here are even smarter then the old forgotten retro rock and funk of "Pulp Fiction". The only songs "Fiction" like are the dark yet funky track by The Vampire Sound, Inc and Elliot's Easton Tiki Gods with a slight surfer rock number. In the beginning and through most of the albums, get ready to be moved by some soul.
It starts off with an awesome Bobby Womack song "Across 110th Street", with a soul lot of great singing on behalf of Womack not to mention awesome story telling of life on the street. The beautiful R&B tracks is kind of a theme song. Great soul groups flex their vocal power on here. "Strawberry Letter 23" and "Natural High" are great examples of radio soul and romance by the Brother Johnson and Bloodstone respectively. The Delfonics (one of the best vocal groups of the era) shine on the big hit "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time". It combines that great Motown arrangement just with a sweeter lower sound. You also get R&B divas like Randy Crawford on the upbeat sassy smart groove of "Street Life" while Minnie Riperton sweats sex on the juicy disco moan of "Inside My Love". All the songs are great and unique but it's really the funk and soul that burns brightest here. Don't forget cute rap track by Foxy Brown and a nicely sung Pam "Jackie/Foxy Brown" Grier on "Long Time Woman". Not the best vocals, but you really feel it. And there is also a live Johnny Cash on "Tennessee Stud". I love every track for a different reason.
