Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Soundtrack

  • Indie exclusive translucent orange vinyl. 2xLP
RELEASE DATE // Oct 25, 2019
12" Compilation / Columbia / Soundtrack
At a time when big studios were commissioning the most grandiose scores imaginable, or using soundtracks as a pissing contest to see who could get an original radio hit from a chart topping artist (a trend that’s starting to come back around), Tranatino chose to open Pulp Fiction with a one-two punch of Dick Dale’s “Misirlou” and Kool & The Gang’s “Jungle Boogie,” stacking the rest of the film with classics from his record collection in lieu of any original score whatsoever (Jackie Brown achieved even greater results using this formula).

In the same way that Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is a love letter to the films and culture of the 1960s, the soundtrack is as era-appropriate as you’d expect, recontextualizing heavily-rinsed tunes like Simon & Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson,” Bob Seger’s “Ramblin Gamblin Man” and Deep Purple’s “Hush” peppered with more obscure fare from Tranatino’s ephemeral archives. The songs are punctuated with vintage radio advertisements, so it’s like you’re cruising to 75 minutes of L.A. radio in 1969.

33 tracks altogether, spread over four sides of clear orange vinyl housed in gatefold jacker with printed insert and Hollywood map poster.
