The Commitments [Deluxe Edition] [2 Discs]
In 2007, some 16 years after Alan Parker's adaptation of Roddy Doyle's novel turned into a feel-good cult sensation, Universal released a two-disc Deluxe Edition of The Commitments soundtrack. The first disc contains the original 1991 soundtrack, the second its 1992 sequel The Commitments, Vol. 2, with the two rounded out with five selections from the group's lead singer Andrew Strong's 1993 album Strong. All this music is of a piece -- it's all competent, respectful tribute to classic '60s R&B and soul -- so it makes for a consistent deluxe edition; indeed, for big fans of The Commitments who don't already own the two soundtracks, this is a nice way to get all of the music at once, if they're so inclined to do so.
