iTunes Editors’ Notes
Anyone familiar with Quentin Tarantino’s films knows that his soundtracks show him to be equally enthusiastic about music. Though his score to 2012’s Django Unchained is no exception, one noticeable change here is how Tarantino contrasts plenty of obscure record-collection gems with contemporary recordings from less obscure artists. In pure Tarantino form, he opens with Luis Bacalov’s “Django” from the 1966 exploitation film of the same name. It plays like an Elvis impersonator singing over a spaghetti western song. But more importantly, it lets fans know exactly where the inspiration for Django Unchained came from. Following this with a tense Ennio Morricone instrumental (“The Braying Mule”) makes perfect sense, and if you listen closely to the song's beginning you can hear the needle dropping on the record. Since the plot deals with a slave trying to rescue his wife from a Southern plantation owner, the gritty hip-hop of Rick Ross’ “100 Black Coffins” sounds right at home among the retro vinyl gems and sampled film dialogue, as does RZA’s “Ode to Django.”
Absolutely amazing soundtrack. The movie is phenomenal and the soundtrack works perfectly. One of Tarantino's best.
Great Soundtrack. QT picks the greatest music to set the tone and keeps the visuals alive by listening to the soundtrack. I can't wait to see it again. And hear it again.
Here is a note from QT
A note about the condition of the older recordings I am using on this Soundtrack -
A lot of these came from my personal vinyl collection. Instead of having the record companies give me new digitally cleaned up verisons of these recording from the 60's and 70's, I wanted to use the vinyl I've been listening to for years.
Complete with all the pops and cracks. I've even kept the sound of the needle being put down on the record. Basically because I wanted people's experience to be the same as mine when they hear this soundtrack for the first time. -Q
"Who Did that to You?"
In my opinion, Django Unchained bested Tarantino's other award winning movie, Pulp Fiction. "Who Did That to You?" is also amazing. Instant favorite, both the movie and the song, although I wish I could just buy the song as a single, along with a few other songs as well, but not necessarily buy it with the whole album.
