"This is the very cool soundtrack to acclaimed writer / director Quentin Tarantino's 1994 masterpiece movie, 'Pulp Fiction'.
As with all of Tarantino's films, music plays a major role. 'Reservoir Dogs' set the tone in 1992 with it's amazing selection of sounds - and immortalised an obscure single from the '70s (Stealer's Wheel "Stuck In The Middle With You") as a song to slice ears off by!
The 'Pulp Fiction' film is a unique, mysterious, entertaining crime story and the music on this disc perfectly captures the wild, violent, humorous style of the on screen action. It is essentially a Quentin Tarantino mix-tape, twisting and weaving together an amazing variation of tracks.
Opening with Dick Dale's ripper guitar instrumental "Misirlou", the wash of surf music is interspersed with sound bites of dialogue from the movie, with some golden oldie classics thrown in for good measure. These include Dusty Springfield's gorgeous "Son of a Preacher Man", the rock'n'roll fun of Chuck Berry's "You Never Can Tell" and the Reverend Al Green's very moving "Let's Stay Together".
And let's not forget the fried chicken funk of Kool & The Gang performing "Jungle Boogie" and the Urge Overkill's show-stealing, seductive cover of Neil Diamond's "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon".
Made for eight million dollars, the controversial film eventually grossed over 100 million dollars and topped many critics' top ten lists. Pulp Fiction won the Palme d'or at the Cannes Film Festival and earned seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay (Tarantino and Avary), Best Actor (John Travolta), Best Supporting Actor (Samuel L. Jackson), and Best Supporting Actress (Uma Thurman).
The movie is a must see and the soundtrack is a must have!"
