As many of you know, the original soundtrack was split into 2 separate CDs - Soundtrack to Big Chill and More Songs from Big Chill. I was annoyed years ago when I discovered I could actually compile every song heard in this movie - including the Stones' "Can't Always Get What you Want" - into a single CD, while Motown decided it was a good idea at the time to make consumers pay for 2 CDs instead of one by adding a bunch of songs that were not even in the movie. So now that they have a chance to redeem themselves, why is Motown releasing a 2CD "Deluxe" set that is still missing a vital track from the "More Songs" soundtrack such as Quicksilver Girl? I can understand copyright issues with the Rolling Stones' song, which was probably why it was left off the original soundtrack, but Quicksilver Girl was on the "More songs" soundtrack! I think the song list on the new Deluxe package is good, but the omission of 2 of the key songs that actually appeared in the movie was disappointing and dropped this review a couple of stars. That having been said, I still bought this set. Guess I'm just a sucker for repackages!

This is one of the best compilations to come out as being re-mastered "The Big Chill, featuring the Deluxe Edition with an expanded booklet with liner notes that will give the listener an insight to the film as well as the music.
Take a look at what you're in for ~ Original Soundtrack Album (released in September 1983), featuring The Exciters, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Procol Harum, The Rascals, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, The Temptations and Three Dog Night ~ high steppin', low steppin' and rhythm takes an aggressive leap into the decades that gave us music with soul.
Next stop is ~ 'More songs From The Big Chill,' (released in March 1984), featuring The Band, The Beach Boys, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Spencer Davis Group, The Rascals, Percy Sledge ~ artist bring back some wonderful times in you life.
Film Instrumentals serve up "STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT" (Bert Kaempfert), "YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT" (Church Version) and the "J.T. LANCER" (theme) - can't go wrong with any of the three selections, especially the Kaempfert cue.
Disc Two starts things off with ~ Blues Magoos, James Brown, Joe Cocker, Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Lesley Gore, Isley Brothers, The Mamas & The Papas, Martha & The Vanellas, The Marvelettes, Moody Blues, Jimmy Ruffin, Spanky & Our Gang, The Supremes, Howard Tate, Tammi Terrell, J.R. Walker & The All Stars and The Zombies ~ each performer reached the top-ten-smash hit phase during their reign.
Compilation under the guidance of Harry Weinger and Hip-O Records, a job well done ~ good to hear classic sounds for listeners old and new...gotta love it!

No question about it, all the songs on here are great. However, you're better off searching for the expanded edition of this soundtrack, which has 4 extra tracks. It's out of print, but can be found in used CD stores. This soundtrack is often used to represent the baby boomer generation, but believe me, it barely dents the surface.

Could be my memory's faulty. Could be the Stones wouldn't give the rights to the label. But don't I remember the movie starting out rolling a coffin down the aisle to the wistful cynicism of Jagger's scratchy tenor complaint, "You Can't Always Get What You Want". To prove the literal truth of the lyrics, the song isn't in either soundtrack.
What else are we missing?!

There's no question, the music is wonderful, but for goodness sake, why is Polygram being so cheap? Both this and the supplemental compilation could easily fit on one disc.

Even if you haven't seen the movie, you would appreciate this soundtrack album. It is a one stop shop for the 60's music scene. If you are young and don't remember the sixties, get this CD and you'll get the cream of the crop. It's got great artists like Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin, who shaped a generation. Be warned though, it will make you want to rush out and buy a dozen other albums as you dive into the past. As the man said, "There is no other music."

When I was in elementary school, I can remember this soundtrack playing in my house.....alot. At the time I didn't get what was so great about these songs. Now I am out of college, and I recently purchased this c.d. because of nostalgic childhood memories. I finally understand why my parents loved this album. The songs capture a certain time and mood, and as listeners, we are automatically taken there. All the songs are wonderful, especially "Whiter Shade of Pale". This is a wonderful collection of songs, that are sure to delight listeners young and old.

This is the first of two soundtrack CDs issued for the movie "The Big Chill" (the other being The Big Chill: More Songs From The Original Soundtrack) and it contains the more prominent of the songs used in the film including:
"I Heard it Through the Grapevine" - this is the song played during the opening titles.
"Joy to the World" - this is the song played during the credits.
"Ain't Too Proud to Beg" - the song playing when the yuppies dance around the kitchen.
All of the songs from the film that are missing from this CD can be found on the other CD, mentioned above, with the exception of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" - the Rolling Stones song played at the funeral. This song is sorely missed from these soundtrack albums and its omission is apparently due to the fact that the Rolling Stones do not allow their songs to be included on albums other than their own. For people trying to obtain this song, it can be found on a number of Rolling Stones CDs including Let It Bleed [DSD]. Even without this song, however, this is still a great CD containing some of the best songs of the Big Chill era.
