Amongst Quentin Tarantino‘s copious celebrated films and their equally heralded soundtracks, one in particular should stand out, specially for those keen to the Okay-realm. Jackie Brown would be the one, not solely for its brilliant update on the blaxploitation canon, or even for giving the incomparable Pam Grier a moment to flaunt her crates, but for the soulmatic soundtrack that brought the film to life and captivated a new generation of r&b diggers to continue their pursuit.
For those looking, procuring a copy of the seismic score in its heavy acetate form has proven to be an incredibly costly venture with original pressings going for big bucks on the market. But fear not, folks, a vinyl reissue of the soundtrack is on the way, giving you deep cuts from Bobby Womack (whose “Across 110th St” provides musical muscle for one of the most iconic closing sequences in cinematic history) Minnie Riperton, The Delfonics, Bloodstone and so many more vintage soul and r&b staples from between the dust and grooves. The reissue for Quentin Tarantino’s gem of a soundtrack is due October 27th courtesy of Rhino and can be preordered today via Elusive Disc. Bust out that wallet before they’re all gone.
