4.0 out of 5 stars Good Soundtrack For A Bad Movie, 6 April 2006
By 
Robert Weingartner (Staten Island, New York United States) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Stoned (Audio CD)
Even though the movie was a disapointment, the soundtrack to Stoned was pretty good. Of course it would have been better for a Rolling Stones soundtrack, but this wasn't a bad alternative. Some really good songs on here. A mixture of some origianal versions, White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane, Lazy Sunday by The Small Faces and Stop Breakin' Down by Robert Johnson with some new covers of Little Red Rooster by the Counterfeit Stones and Not Fade Away by The Bees are really good - two songs which were also covered by the original Stones in 1964.
If only the movie were this good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good soundtrack, 26 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Stoned (Audio CD)
Avoiding covers of Stones originals-even The Last Time was based on a gospel song by the Staples Singers- for covers of the Stones covers in order to reflect Brian Jones' own prefernces this soundtrack also adds a couple of 60s songs via the Small Faces' Lazy Sunday and the Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit-the reason being Jones never really approved of psychedelic music -which is a slender reason for including them.
Alternating with David Arnold's original orchestral music which evokes the period are covers of Robert Johnson songs-Love in Vain and Stop breaking down are here in 2 different versions and covers of songs made famous by the Stones.
The wonderfully named Haley Glennie Smith is a new American folk singer resident in the U K and she does a version of Come on in my kitchen-this however is not the first girl version as it had been recorded 5 years previously by Emma Townshend-the daughter of Pete.
The final track is Johnson's own original of Stop breaking down-recorded by the Stones after Jones' death.
The Dylan song Ballad of a thin man is included here because Jones' always thought the song was about him and its heard here by the current band Kula Shaker
However the Bees are unlikely to be the doowoppers who cut an early version of My Ding A Ling (as Toy Bell) and who had been named as such because the lead singer was Billy Bland who charted with Let The Little Girl Dance in 1960

4.0 out of 5 stars Stoned, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stoned (Audio CD)
It's somewhat different to what I expected, but refreshing and makes me want to see the film too now to match the music to the scenes.
