Product Description

SOUNDTRACK TIEMPOS VIOLENTOS (PULP FICTION)

Amazon.com

Dick Dale's surf-guitar provided the memorable title theme ("Misirlou"), for Quentin Tarantino's 1994 smash, and although that sound runs throughout the soundtrack (along with bits and pieces of dialog from the movie), this is a pretty eclectic bunch of really terrific songs. I don't know how it all manages to hang together, but it does (you might say the same for the interwoven stories in the movie). Where else are you going to find Chuck Berry, Maria McKee, Al Green, The Statler Brothers, Kool & the Gang, Urge Overkill (singing a Neil Diamond ballad!), Ricky Nelson, Dusty Springfield, and the Tornadoes (among others) one album? McKee's beautiful "If Love is a Red Dress (Hang Me in Rags)" is a standout, partly because it's less familiar. One of the few soundtracks of the '90s that went into the CD player and stayed there for weeks and months thereafter. --Jim Emerson

The soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's breakthrough movie Pulp Fiction is arguably one of the best soundtrack albums you'll ever hear. Like Tarantino's other movie soundtracks like Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill, it combines a few great songs that were past hits with tracks that most music listeners have never heard before. Unlike those soundtracks, Pulp Fiction is great from beginning to end with the more obscure tracks being arguably better than the more established songs.
All of the tracks here that were past hits are very strong. Kool & The Gang's "Jungle Boogie" is one of the best funk jams from the '70s. Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" is '70s soul at its best. Chuck Berry's "You Never Can Tell", Dusty Springfield's "Son Of A Preacher Man", Ricky Nelson's "Lonesome Town", and the Statler Brothers' "Flowers On The Wall" with its catchy chorus are also great tracks. Any movie soundtrack containing these tracks would be pretty good. But what really puts this album over the top are the more obscure tracks or "deep cuts." Dick Dale's "Misirlou" is a killer track that resurrected the surf guitar king's career. Urge Overkill's version of Neil Diamond's "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon" is an outstanding track which is even better than the original. The tracks "Bustin' Surfboards" and "Surf Rider" are also great. But it's the somber acoustic track "If Love Is A Red Dress" with Maria McKee's fantastic vocal performace and whistling hook that steals the show. The snippets from the movie are some of its best moments, especially "Royale With Cheese" and Samuel Jackson's closing "Ezekiel 25:17." The tracks are also sequenced very well, never putting songs from the same genre or mood together. All told, this is a great soundtrack to what was arguably one of the best movies of the '90s. Highly recommended.

The initial release of the "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack was every bit as innovative as the film itself; after it was released to generally positive reviews everyone suddenly had to have snippets of film dialogue interspersing the songs featured in (or inspired by) their movies and Quentin Tarantino completed his video store clerk's revenge by being able to credibly claim to be influencing not only film for the last half of the 1990's but also film sountrack production as well.
The only trouble was that the original soundtrack CD, a complete blast to listen to under any circumstance, wasn't nearly as complete as it could have been. Most of the music from the "Jackrabbit Slim's" sequence was left off (most notably Link Wray's classic "Rumble", from the "uncomfortable silence" bit, made even more noticeable due to the, uh, uncomfortable silence).
This re-issue (sorry, "collector's edition") of the soundtrack, timed to co-ordinate with the re-issue of the previously bare-bones "Pulp Fiction" DVD in 2002 goes miles toward correcting this oversight, providing signature songs instantly recognizable from their respective scenes in the movie (assuming you've seen the movie as often as I have) and one, the Brothers Johnson classic cover of "Strawberry Letter #23" that I can't seem to recall from the movie to save my life...but it too is a welcome addition, completely in place with the rest of the songs.
It would have been nice to have added a couple more splices of film dialogue as well, but that's a piddling request in light of the very-badly needed material that finally makes its way onto the disc.
As for Tarantino's 16:09 "interview" that takes up the second disc, chances are you've heard it before...

"Pulp Fiction" wasn't the first movie whose mood grew from the pop songs that became its soundtrack. E.g., "American Graffiti" found motivation in popular music much earlier, providing a huge boost to '50s music nostalgia. "Pulp Fiction" helped fuel a popular resurgence of surf music, but more importantly, it was the film whose director spent a great deal of time discussing his music-inspired methodology. At the time of the film's release, Quentin Tarantino consumed numerous interview inches discoursing on his technique for drawing a film from his record collection.
For those who didn't hear or read Tarantino's explanation the first time around, MCA's "Collector's Edition" soundtrack (issued to accompany the film's DVD reissue) adds a 16-minute "interview" (actually, a non-stop monolog), as well as four tracks left off the original CD. The extra songs are terrific, but expanding to two discs solely to accommodate the 1994 interview (disc one contains the music, disc two the interview) positions this more for Tarantino groupies than anyone else.
Those interested enough to sit through Tarantino's self-aggrandizing film-geek commentary (at least, more than once) will have already heard what he has to say. Those who just want to relive the film, and enjoy the music, are saddled with an extra disc at added cost. To be fair, the price increase also covers royalties for the four additional track, but the addition of an entire disc to convey an eight-year-old 16 minute Jolt-fueled ramble seems like a vanity project.
The four additional tracks (The Robins' "Since I First Met You," Link Wray's "Rumble," Brothers Johnson's "Strawberry Letter #23," and The Marketts' "Out of Limits") have been added to the end of the standard-issue track list.
