    I really enjoyed the soundtrack, and the track that surprised me the most was the good old Easybeats cover Bring a Little Lovin. No, scratch that, the biggest surprise was the Stones track which caused me to tell my wife "man that must have cost." I enjoyed the movie, my wife was very happy that it didn't end the way she was expecting. However, if you take the movie on its own terms Sharon Tate had no reason to be featured in the movie so much. Think about it.

    I don't agree. If the Sharon Tate character hadn't been featured in the movie, the ending wouldn't have been so thought-provoking (or as surprising) compared to what really happened. If only......

    But taken on its own terms, Tate is given an elaborate setup just to invite Dalton over for a drink. Anything else you bring to it in order to be "thought-provoking" isn't based on the movie, but on other knowledge. Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards has the same rewritten history thing going on, but without the cheat of giving weight to a character only to hardly utilize them in the plot. That said, I actually prefer Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

    Good article , concept and choices!

    Ironically, very, very recently I also added both Crimson and Clover and I GotA Line On You to my sprawling EXTENDED OUATIH playlist on Spotify.

    Great, but needed “Let’s Take a Trip” by Godfrey.

    Hi Myke. I realize you asked this 6 months ago and probably already have your answer, but a couple of weeks ago, I bought the standard, black vinyl version of this soundtrack, and the initials in the deadwax are SS.

    For what it's worth, I love this movie and the soundtrack.

    I liked the soundtrack much better than the movie which did admittedly have a satisfying ending.

    I'm really glad I got this soundtrack. My 7 year old daughter has taken a strong liking to four of the songs and she asks me to play them everyday. At first she got into "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show" because she thought "grab the old ladies" was hilarious. But she's all about the following two songs, "Don't Chase Me Around" and "Mr. Sun, Mr. Moon." She really loves "The Circle Game" as well. "Mr. Sun" was a revelation to me. I didn't know Paul Revere, etc. had songs like that. After listening to more of their stuff, I was thrilled to discover "Him or Me - What's It Gonna Be?" Wow. Where has that song been all my life!

    I'm halfway through the movie but enjoying the soundtrack so far.
    Many years ago I copied an air check from Reel Radio... 2 hours of unscoped (breakfast) radio from Robert W Morgan (1968).
    To my surprise they played a bit from it in the movie. Also the Helena Rubinstein commercial which I have in my collection.
    And THE SPIRIT OF '67 LP... will watch the rest of the movie tonight.

    I don't completely understand this quote. For most casual readers, they might assume that those songs in the movies and on the soundtracks are simply recorded off of Quentin's lps and 45s. It's hard to imagine that there aren't master tapes for almost every song he uses in his films. I know that some are a bit more obscure than others, but these aren't songs from 78's in the 30's and 40's.

    Did I misunderstand her comment?

    Sure sounds like that. Brings to mind the story of Scorsese using his 45s for the score of Mean Streets.

    Tarantino often uses his own LPs to soundtrack his films, I believe. I read he did the same thing with Jim Croce’s I Got A Name for Django Unchained.

    Yes. Some of the songs sound like that. Also perhaps from radio recordings?
