Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steven McDonald
Following in the footsteps of many, the soundtrack for Martin Scorcese's Goodfellas based on Nicholas Pileggi's Wiseguy uses period music for definition -- in this case, however, music from the '40s through the early '70s is utilized. The selections themselves are all good -- well chosen and not overused songs that range from "Rags to Riches," sung by Tony Bennett, to "Layla Piano Exit" from Derek & the Dominos, passing through "Speedo" from the Cadillacs, "Life Is But a Dream" from the Harptones, "Baby I Love You" from Aretha Franklin in fine voice here, and "Sunshine of Your Love" from Cream.

It's a little on the short side at 38 minutes. Other than that, it's an even dozen songs, from good to great, and particular care seems to have been taken with the remastering -- standouts in that respect are the opening "Rags to Riches," the Franklin and Cream numbers, and Muddy Waters' stomping, snorting rendition of "Mannish Boy." One of the better oldies-oriented film scores.
