Tarantino Experience: Ultimate Tribute to Quentin Tarantino 2LP

DOL

The Tarantino Experience is the original sound of one of the greatest filmmakers of the last 50 years featuring music from and inspired by such Quentin Tarantino landmarks as Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs, Death Proof, and his 2019 picture Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. To some movie directors, the music heard in their films seems as (or more) important than the images seen or the dialogue spoken. Many 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 his ultimate musical strengths. In the process he has left a long list of iconic scenes that would be the sames 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 Wheels.

The Tarantino Experience attempts to help you explore Quentin Tarantino's personal way to approach his projects when it comes to their music!
