5.0 out of 5 stars Telling the story with music, 5 Jun 2003
By 
Mr. C. Howlett "spoofox" (Lancashire, UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Color Purple (Audio CD)
Anyone who has read the book or seen the film of The Color Purple could not help but be moved by Quincy Jones' lyrical soundtrack. The tracks tell the story from beginnning to end and, even though I did not know anything about the story when I first listened to the music, I knew the story from just listening to the songs and themes on the album.
By the time the theme for the mail box is reprised at the end of the album, I was in tears and knew that the film was going to have the same effect.
Speilberg definately made the right move by hiring Jones instead of John Williams for this project.
Highly recommended. IF you can find a copy.
