Pirate Radio [Motion Picture Soundtrack]

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Given the subject matter of Richard Curtis' film Pirate Radio, the soundtrack had to filled with absolutely classic rock, pop, and soul. The motion picture entitled The Boat That Rocked in the U.K. is a comedy that reflects on the real-life bands of illegal radio stations that broadcast from boats just outside British territorial waters in the mid-'60s and were therefore outside the iron grip of the BBC. The soundtrack contains a whopping 32 tracks spread over a pair of CDs that contain everything from obvious picks from the era, such the Kinks' "All of the Day and All of the Night," and John Fred & His Playboy Band's "Judy in Disguise," to the Who's "I Can See for ...

Other acts from the early classic pop
ock era are Jimi Hendrix, Moody Blues, Procol Harum of course!, the Isley Brothers, Beach Boys, Supremes, Otis Redding, Cream, Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, Dusty Springfield, Easybeats, Jeff Beck, the Hollies, etc. -- though the Beatles and Rolling Stones are absent for some more than likely, legal reason. There are some wonderful surprises too, however: the inclusion of Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass' "This Guy's in Love With You," the Turtles' "Elenore," sic and the opening track, a version of "Stay with Me Baby," by Duffy. Lorraine Ellison's version is also here, included near the end of disc two. David Bowie's lone "Let's Dance," is also here to close the collection. Ultimately, it all adds up to one big party -- even if you have every cut here individually.

    Those were the Days

    For those between about 55 and 65 years of age this is a true nostalgic walk down memory lane. This is a great collection of super dance tunes of that mid sixties era that transitioned us from good ol' rock n roll to the psychodelic era. This was a period of great music, referred to as the "British Invasion" that often gets stepped over as folks go from Chuck Berry to Woodstock. I loved this album (and the movie) becuase it focused right on that era. My only regret is that it wasn't a 3 CD set with more "British Invasion" hits. Particularly with today's surround sound and sub-woofers, you should crank your volume to "11", put on your Carnaby Street togs and start "Dancing in the Streets"!

    Great Soundtrack to a Great Film.

    Almost all of the music that is heard in Pirate Radio is included in the soundtrack. The Rolling Stones songs included in the film are missing, though.

    Those were the days - and I know it!

    This soundtrack is a must for anyone who lived through the 60's and is a good music history lesson for those who didn't. These songs exemplify the wide diversity of the music written and performed during the early period of what can only be said to be the greatest explosion of individual expression ever witnessed in modern culture.
