Editorial Reviews

The Last King of Scotland is based the novel by Englishman Giles Foden and stars Forest Whitaker, James McAvoy, and Gillian Anderson.

Soundtrack features an original film score by Alex Heffes (One Day in September, Touching the Void, Dear Frankie).

The Last King of Scotland opens in theatres September 27th.

In an incredible twist of fate, a Scottish doctor (James McAvoy) on a Ugandan medical mission becomes irreversibly entangled with one of the world’s most barbaric figures: Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker). Impressed by Dr. Garrigan’s brazen attitude in a moment of crisis, the newly self-appointed Ugandan President Amin hand picks him as his personal physician and closest confidante. Though Garrigan is at first flattered and fascinated by his new position, he soon awakens to Amin’s savagery - and his own complicity in it. Horror and betrayal ensue as Garrigan tries to right his wrongs and escape Uganda alive.

The 7 tracks ( of 18 ) written especially for the film by Alex Heffes make no further listening sense outside of the movie - they are very boring - but the other tracks are pretty good. I especially like 'Fever' by Jingo. By Jingo I wish there were more tracks by them! Also the goofy Afro Reaggie Jazz on Afro Disco Beat is good. I love the raw recording and energy of many of the songs 'Love is You' is great. I could though live without 'The Bonnie Banks O'Lock Lomond'

It goes without saying that the film was excellent, and I've always believed a soundtrack is half of the movie. What's amazing is how the soundtrack for such a dark film can be so listenable when kicking back and thinking about things other than murderous African Big Men. My favorite has to be Nakawunde, which sadly I cannot find any other music by Percussion Discussion Afrika. They are a small Ugandan group it seems. They're on MySpace now, at least so hopefully they'll be heard from more. The film was that authentic in its search for real Ugandan sounds.

Loved the movie and enjoyed the African music in the music which is why I decided to get this CD which I have enjoyed playing many times since I bought it.

THIS CD IS EXCELLENT. VERY UPLIFTING AND THE SONGS AND TUNES ARE VERY ACCESSIBLE, THE VERSION OF ME AND BOBBY MCGEE IS GREAT A REAL AFRICAN TWIST ON A VERY OLD CLASSIC BUT I THING THE VERSION OF THE SCOTTISH SONG IS REALLY AMAZING AND IT SAYS MORE ABOUT THE THE LIFE AND THE INFLUENCE OF THE COLONIZER ON AFRICA THAN ANY AMOUNT OF BOOKS I THINK TO HEAR AN AFRICAN VERSION OF A VERY TRADITIONAL SONG. ALL IN ALL I AM GLAD I PURCHASED IT AND THE FILM IS ALSO FANTASIC IF A BIT GRISLY AT TIMES.
