Product Description

Wonder Boys - Music From The Motion Picture by Various

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Amazon.com

Director Curtis Hanson chooses a lineup of vintage rock and R&B for the musical side of his screen adaptation of Michael Chabon's brilliant Wonder Boys. Foremost is Bob Dylan, who contributes a new rocker, "Things Have Changed," as well as cuts from Blood on the Tracks, Oh Mercy, and Time Out of Mind. These 13 cuts do a fine job of limning Michael Douglas's lead character's confusion, regret, and weary-to-the-bone ambivalence. Smartly sequenced--soul giants Little Willie John and Clarence Carter fit perfectly alongside the likes of Dylan, Lennon, Van Morrison, and Neil Young--Wonder Boys the album is a stellar example of hand-in-glove movie-music supervision. --Rickey Wright

Customer Reviews

It has music from very well known singers like Leonard Cohen and Van Morrison, and more obscure ones.
Irene S Crick
The spare accompaniment and his quavering, plaintive-sounding vocals underline the sadness and poignancy of the lyrics very effectively.
Ken J W Baker
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a cd that one can listen to time and again and never tire of.

Although I wish that the other Dylan tunes were NOT released versions, Things Have Changed makes it all worthwhile! Dylan's view, looking forward, drips with sarcasm, and his voice is as beautiful as ever...makes you hungry for a whole album of Dylan's driving acoustic sound, and the raspy voice, sounding as if he's the only one honest enough to tell you what you already know....

Bob Dylan continues his second...or third...or fourth wind, following the grammy award winning "Time Out Of Mind" of 1997. His new single, "Things have hanged" is as powerful as Dylan's songwriting has been in ages...this includes Time Out Of Mind. It recalls the genius of "Tweeter And The Monkey Man" from his first Traveling Wilbury's effort in 1988. Things have Changed is an accoustic driven rocker that is pushed home by a pounding drum beat unheard of in anything Dylan has ever put to tape. It just may be the strongest song Dylan has recorded since the mid 70's. meanwhile, one of many stellar classics from the Neil young archives, "Old Man," as well as Leonard Cohen's surreal "Waiting For The Miracle" and plenty of soul masterpieces make this perhaps the finest soundtrack anyone can own. For once, one can listen to the songs on this album and actually have a sense of what the film is about. That is a rare achievement these days. "Wonder Boys" is a top notch purchase.

For those of us who grew up, musically, in the 60s and 70s, this is an incredible collection of songs, from a wonderful and charming film, that will carry you back. Who spoke louder during those years than Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Tim Hardin, Van Morrison, and others! The songs compiled here are a great mix of classics (e.g., Tim Hardin's "Reason To Believe," Neil Young's "Old Man") and new songs by old-timers. Most notable among the latter are Dylan's dreamy and mystical "Things Have Changed," written specifically for the film, and Van Morrison's hard-driving "Philosophers Stone." Dylan has figured prominently in folk and rock music to this day, and is "rewarded" in a sense with four songs, the oldest being "Buckets of Rain" from "Blood on The Tracks."
The song listing is provided above, so there is no sense in repeating it here. Suffice it to say that this a tremendous, emotional, and poetic collection of marvelous songs to go along with a tremendous, emotional, and poetic film. I have played this CD over and over again, and have been madly digging out old vinyl records of a number of these artists (e.g., Buffalo Springfield) to recapture the wonder of this music's heritage.
The title of the film could just as easily have referred to the singers recorded here. They are all "wonder boys."

This CD would rate 3 or 4 stars even if it contained only Dylan's "Things Have Changed" and 40 minutes of tape hiss. However, there is lots more here to appreciate.
As a rule, I'm not at all a fan of soundtracks,though there have been some notable exceptions, and Wonder Boys is certainly one of them. This is probably as fine a collection of folk-rock and classic soul as you'll find anywhere.
The only new tune here is the aforementioned "Things Have Changed" by Bob Dylan, and it kicks off the CD in high style. With its driving, propulsive beat - powered by David Kemper's phenomenal drumming - and harrowing lyrics, this is probably the best track Dylan has laid down in 20 years. I was very pleased at it's recent Oscar nomination for Best Song (for it to WIN may be too much to hope for).There are 3 other older Dylan songs here, including "Buckets of Rain" from Blood on the Tracks, and they have all been well-chosen. Other highlights include "No Regrets" by the shamefully underrated and underappreciated Tom Rush, Clarence Carter's slinky, sexy, "Slip Away", and the closing track, Van Morrison's "Philosopher's Stone". The version of "Reason to Believe" contained here, is the original by the song's author, the late Tim Hardin, as opposed to Rod Stewart's more familiar cover. While Rod's rendition will still remain the definitive one for most people, Hardin's has its own merits. The spare accompaniment and his quavering, plaintive-sounding vocals underline the sadness and poignancy of the lyrics very effectively.
There's only two minor quibbles here.

This CD is full of great folk songs, that are both inspirational and sentimental. The movie is great and I think Michael Douglas does a great job, but this CD has the real wonder boys on it. How these artists can turn out such great music year after year is truly amazing.
I bought this CD because I saw the movie and realized how many of the songs were just great in the background. And you won't be disappointed if you buy this CD, in fact you may feel elated because there are several songs on this disk that don't figure very prominently in the movie but are still really great tunes and fit the whole mood of the movie very well. This is a great soundtrack unlike a lot that you buy and realize that half the songs you thought would be on it aren't.
Of course the star of this CD is a brand new Dylan tune written exclusively for this movie called, "Things Have Changed", which is a great rock tune full of self-hatred at times but the realization that love can really go wrong. There are many other Dylan tracks on this album as well including "Buckets of Rain" from another great CD Blood on the Tracks. Which is a great all around folksy song. There's also "Shooting Star" from Oh Mercy. And "It's Not Dark Yet" from Time Out Of Mind which I feel is one of the most overlooked Dylan songs of all time. This is a great somewhat dark but at the same time very hopeful folk song.
And that's just Dylan's contributions. Buffalo Springfield, Tom Rush, Neil Young, Tim Hardin, Little Willie John, Clarence Carter, Leonard Cohen, John Lennon, and Van Morrison also contribute tracks as well.
