Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Aside from new tunes by Pavement (the Lou Reed hommage Sensitive Euro Man) and Yo La Tengo, this soundtrack looks back on the '60s with period covers by Wilco, R.E.M., Ben Lee, Bettie Serveert, Jewel, and Luna. The latter's velvety take on Donovan's "Season of the Witch" is the highlight; Ben Lee's massacre of "Itchycoo Park" the nadir. --Jeff Bateman

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best soundtrack February 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've got this cd, and I listen to it all the time. It has a lot of Factory period songs, some of which are originals, some are re done by newer artists. One song is composed by John Cale, who was in the Velvet Underground. But my favorite is Sunshine Superman by Jewel, and Demons by Yo La Tengo, the band who plays the Velvet Underground in the movie. It's a song I could listen to over and over because it has such a strange feel to it. And there is also a dialogue clip of Valerie Solanas' SCUM Manifesto near the end. I also like Mas Que Nada alot too. This is the most eclectic thing I've ever heard, and it makes you think Andy would have loved this cd if he ever heard it. Definitely recommended. If you are even considering buying this in the least bit, I would urge you to take a chance on it. I'm glad I did.

This is a good soundtrack from the outstanding mid-90's film. However, there were several great songs in the film that somehow didn't make it onto this album: Dionne Warwick's "Walk on By", Love's "The Red Telephone", and Blue Cheer's "Summertime Blues." I would gladly trade the tepid R.E.M. and Jewel covers for a couple of those gems, though in reality, there would have been plenty of room for all of these songs on the CD. I also have to wonder why there were no Velvet Underground songs in the movie or on the soundtrack (perhaps a permission issue?), though the band at the factory party is clearly supposed to be the Velvets.

Reservations aside, the second half of this CD is dynamite (from "Mais Que Nada" on). The Love song that did make the cut, "Gimi a Little Break" is new to me, and it's a sweet shot of sonic mayhem from Arthur Lee and company. My two favorite tracks are "Sensitive Euro Man" by Pavement (one of my favorite bands, I confess) and Bettie Serveert's superb cover of Dylan's "I'll Keep It With Mine." I have long been a huge fan of Fairport Convention's majestic version of this song, and after hearing this version (which runs over the film's closing credits), I immediately went hunting for this soundtrack (which, by the way, comes pretty cheap these days). It's just as successful as FC's cover, though completely different. A sweet song by Yo La Tengo and excerpts from John Cale's fine score round out this very good compilation.

P.S. See the movie - Lily Taylor is outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of my favorite albums October 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I can't remember why I originally bought this album, but I think it was for the first two tracks. I had assumed that this soundtrack would contain few songs that are actually listenable, as is the case with many soundtracks. I was SO wrong. This is one of the best CDs I own, and I listen to it almost obsessively. One of my favorite tracks is Ben Lee's version of "Itchycoo Park." There is something so honest and nonchalant in his approach of this song. I also really enjoy Jewel's "Sunshine Superman." The track twangs with seductiveness. This is one album you can actually listen all the way through!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have! August 6, 2008
By Dean S.
Format:Audio CD
The 'I Shot Andy Warhol' soundtrack is most definitely a must-have for fans of 60s music or the film itself.

Containing classic 60s recordings ('Do You Believe in Magic?', 'Kick Out the Jams') and generally well-done covers ('Sunshine Superman' by Jewel, 'Season of the Witch' by Luna) it delivers a range of catchy tunes.

Also included is the 'I Shot Andy Warhol Suite', composed by John Cale, who was a member of the Velvet Underground, a band familiar with Warhol's Factory scene.

This is probably my favorite soundtrack album, and it is definitely reccomended. And if you haven't seen the film, go check it out. *****
