The 25th anniversary train keeps rolling for Reservoir Dogs and this is one of the coolest developments yet! The Dutch label Music On Vinyl is preparing a limited edition, 180 gram audiophile reissue on red vinyl of the iconic soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino’s directorial debut. The record hits stores in June but you can pre-order one of the 3,000 numbered copies now from JPC in Germany.
From the Music On Vinyl press release:
The ‘Super Sounds Of The Seventies’ is a selection of seminal and sometimes wacky hits by artists such as Stealers Wheel, Harry Nilsson and Joe Tex. The movie also raised public interest in the Dutch band George Baker Selection, due to the use of his “Little Green Bag” in the film’s opening titles.
Could you think of any other film producer that picks better soundtracks than the widely revered Quentin Tarantino? Inventing a genre on his own, his string of best-selling nouvelle violence movies started out in 1992 with the low budget cult classic Reservoir Dogs.
The film follows a band of criminals preparing for a diamond heist and follows the characters in the crime’s aftermath. Its cast consists of sublime actors such as Harvey Keitel (whose comeback was a direct result of this film), Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn (Sean’s brother) and Steve Buscemi as the legendary character of Mr. Pink. The film’s sparkling dialog catapulted Reservoir Dogs to eternal cult status and remains a favourite among movie fans all over the world, a fame to which its soundtrack contributed a great deal.
Music On Vinyl is proud to release these so called ‘Super Sounds Of The Seventies’, a selection of unusual and sometimes wacky hits by artists such as Stealers Wheel, Harry Nilsson (“Coconut” is included on Nilsson Schmilsson [MOVLP279]) and Joe Tex. The movie also raised public interest in the Dutch band George Baker Selection, due to the use of his “Little Green Bag” in the film’s opening titles. Keep On Truckin‘!
Exactly 25 years ago this cult film was released in theatre. To celebrate this classic soundtrack a 25th year anniversary limited edition of the album is released on bleeding red vinyl.
