2x12" LP Complialtion Of tunes Feat In Tarantino Films - Limited Edition 180g Red & Yellow Vinyl Double LP!
To some movie directors, the music heard in their films seems as (or more) important than the images seen or the dialogue spoken. Many Quentin Tarantino fans would regard a Reservoir Dogs without "Stuck In The Middle With You" or a Pulp Fiction without "Misirlou" as not Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction at all.
Tarantino describes his perhaps unsurprisingly musically-inspired method of film conception as follows: "One of the things I do when I am starting a movie, when I'm writing a movie or when I have an idea for a film is, I go through my record collection and just start playing songs, trying to find the personality of the movie, find the spirit of the movie. Then, 'boom,' eventually I'll hit one, two or three songs, or one song in particular, 'Oh, this will be a great opening credit song.'"
Each one of Tarantino's films is undeniably exciting, raw and groundbreaking, and his skillfully conceived soundtracks can be charted with the same visceral energy - this is one of his ultimate musical strengths. In the process he has left a long list of iconic scenes that wouldn't be the same without his musical bad-assery. To name just a few: The opening of Pulp Fiction with Dick Dale & His Deltone's "Misirlou" or Kill Bill, Vol. 1's epic final showdown between Uma Thurman and Lucy Liu's characters with Santa Esmeralda's "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" in the background. And what about Reservoir Dogs' shocking torture scene with Michael Madsen dancing and singing to "Stuck In The Middle With You" by Stealers Wheel.
The Tarantino Experience Reloaded extends the tribute to one of the greatest filmmakers of the last 50 years and his uncanny talent. Featuring music from and inspired by his films, it attempts to help you explore Tarantino's personal way to approach his projects when it comes to their music. With fantastic artwork and remastered sound, The Tarantino Experience Reloaded is another essential addition to your vinyl collection.
Let's face it, love or hate his attitude in interviews and the characters he loves creating for himself, Quentin Tarantino has made some incredible movies over the last three decades. From the tension of behind enemy lines bars in Nazi Germany, to iconic overdoses and infinitely quotable radio DJs, what the realists despair at is the dramatist's dream come true. And thankfully, aesthetics and dialogue have always been matched by soundtracks.
As the more astute have probably guessed, The Tarantino Experience is a celebration of the latter. And, as the clued up will be thinking, the albums is entering a pretty crowded space. We all recognise Tarantino's films as musical experiences as much as visual and narrative, and the individual soundtracks to his films are everywhere. As such the important things to know here is that the sounds are similar - big funk, rock 'n' roll, psychedelia, blues, honky - but the tracks are (mostly) different.

The term Various Artists is used in the record industry when numerous singers and musicians collaborate on a song or collection of songs. Most often on Last.fm, compilation album tracks appear under the name of Various Artists erroneously because the individual artist is not listed in the album's ID3 information.
Sometimes, single releases may be credited to Various Artists when their profits are going to charity and, usually in high-profile cases, are sometimes known by a group name. Examples include Band Aid with their releases of Do They Know It's Christmas? and USA for Africa with We Are the World.
Various Artists is also an actual performance name for Torsten Pröfrock, who runs the German DIN label. Torsten performs also as Dynamo, Erosion, Resilent, Traktor besides some others. He's a good friend of Robert Henke and since fall 2004 he is a member of Monolake.
Various Artists were also a short-lived Bristol punk band formed by brothers Jonjo and Robin Key (originally from Birmingham). Other members were also simultaneously in Art Objects who went on to become The Blue Aeroplanes, the latter the Key brothers also co-wrote some songs and were involved in. When Various Artists imploded, the Key brothers went on to form Either / Or. Read more on Last.fm
