Could you think of any other contemporary movie 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.
Music On Vinyl is proud to release these so called 'Super Sounds Of The Seventies', a selection of seminal and sometimes wacky hits by artists such as Stealers Wheel, Harry Nilsson and Joe Tex. Reservoir Dogs 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'!
The second full-length album of Danish Fifties/Psych Pop duo The Raveonettes was released in 2005. The group further expand on their signature sound of Fifties inspired Rockabilly Noise Pop with the eerie feel of a thriller movie soundtrack.
Special appearances on this album are made by Maureen Tucker of Velvet Underground on drums, Martin Rev on drum machine and Ronnie Spector, also known as Veronica Bennett of the fabulous Ronettes [MOVLP674] on backup vocals.
Before he went on a highly successful solo streak, Rory Gallagher fronted Taste - a highly influential Irish Blues Rock power trio that sound-wise had many things in common with contemporaries Cream and Them.
Taste's eponymous debut album from 1969 contains harder edged Rock jams like "Blister On The Moon" but also Blues traditionals like Leadbelly's "Leaving Blues" and "Catfish". Crucial material for any Blues or Rock fan.
