Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

For those of us who grew up in the '70s, this drive-in compilation of '50s and '60s rock and doo-wop, complete with Wolfman Jack introductions, was our introduction to this music. There are 41 jukebox hits here, and every one of them is a classic of its time (although two tracks--"At the Hop" and "She's so Fine" are covers by the revival band Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids). In his 1973 movie, director George Lucas used the music (and the presence of mysterious deejay Wolfman) as the AM-radio soundtrack to one night in suburban California, 1962. The idea was to capture and sustain an end-of-summer, end-of-innocence mood that's in the air throughout the picture-- not as a shortcut to establishing a period (as in Robert Zemeckis'Forrest Gump). There's an awful lot of spontaneous energy in these tunes--from Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly, to the Platters and the Clovers and the Del-Vikings, to the Crests and the Beach Boys--and also just a hint of melancholy that goes down very nicely with a burger, shake, and fries. --Jim Emerson

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect selection 3 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Of course the movie is absolutely wonderful. One of the best ever made, and when it comes to the soundtrack, it has to be among the best 50's/early 60's compilations ever made. If you have the slightest interest in that kind of music, this is an essential album. It might not contain the most popular songs, the number 1's, of that era (even if it has a few of those as well). Instead it contains only really great songs which really captures the time. Interesting fact. 10 % of the movies budget went to obtaining the music rights, and that really was money well spent.

I first heard this album years ago upon its release (before I saw the movie) and I was utterly hooked! I bought the album but subsequently 'lost' it (and many others) in a burglary. I searched for a replacement for years only to be told by a very high profile record store that it had been deleted! Now finally I have found a copy! My life is a little more complete now! The Wolfman Jack voice overs really add to the overall panache of this slick compilation of classic tracks which serve to perfectly evoke 1960's American teen spirit. A must for any rock 'n' roll fan or anyone interested in nostalgia. Go buy this album now!

Well what can i say about george lucas's first feature film, and what a classic it is. Having recently watched it, i was was amazed by some of the tunes that were being belted out, one after another, and all classic's, it made the film that much more enjoyable, if you love the 60's music, then i recommend you definatley purchase, this, there just too many good tunes to mention, Fantastic.
