The fact that every single Quentin Tarantino flick is an event nothwithstanding, for audio junkies a new QT movie offers a promise we know is going to be fulfilled. QT is going to provide us with visual impact, to be sure, but he's going to fill our ears with things long since forgotten. In this regard, he's the soundtrack equivalent of Indiana Jones - going on archaeological digs to uncover relics of a past sadly forgotten.

He helped bring Dusty Springfield's masterpiece Dusty in Memphis back to the spot, gave Stealer's Wheel their credibility, sparked the reemergence of surf rock's Neptune in the form of Dick Dale's Misirlou. He showed us exactly how goddamned smooth '70s Philly soul was while pulling genuine treasures out of semi-retirement like Lalo Shifrin, Ennio Morricone and Bernard Herrmann to produce second-to-none scores, all while giving Samuel L. Jackson his career and giving Pam Grier and Robert Forster their careers back.
