The Almost Famous Journey
For those who listened to music in the 70's or who appreciate the era today, the Almost Famous soundtrack flows like cascading memories from that decade, and of the movie itself. Each song embeds itself in some experience of the time period or of a scene in the film, which may be close to the same thing. But it's only a gateway, an aural glimpse into what was arguably the height of the album era, when record companies and record stores sold packaged artists like Led Zeppelin or Boston, and buying them was a right of passage into the charging guitar riffs and vocal pyrotechnics of rock music. Put on the headphones and drift into it.
Classic Film & Soundtrack: Seventies Forever!
A time-specific yet timeless coming of age film, and an outstanding primer for those of you who were not fortunate enough to experience the Seventies in all Her Ragged Glory. Great film from Cameron Crowe, probably at the height of his powers (although Jerry Maguire and Say Anything are true classics, and the dude also wrote Fast Times At Ridgemont High), and small but tasty foray into a decade that was once-maligned but has now become cool. "One day, you'll be cool." "Where am I?" "Tokepa, yeah!" "I am a Greek God!" "Don't do drugs!" "Tiny Dancer" on the bus. "The Cover of the Rolling Stone." Phillip Seymour Hoffman, R.I.P. The plane ride. Kate Hudson. Fran McDormand in a nuanced, fascinating, very real and memorable performance as Will's mom.
Music from another place and time!!
Great music from the greatest decade! The music and the artists from the late 60's til the late 70's will never be duplicated! That's the way it is kids!!!! Peace......
