Synopsis

Amazon.com
One of the most inspired cobbled-together-from-a-stack-of-records soundtrack albums since Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski matches the goofily ramshackle spirit of the Dude, the hero of its celluloid companion. While offering Bob Dylan's luv-addled "Man in Me" together with the Gipsy Kings' redefinitive "Hotel California" and the psychedelic-era Kenny Rogers nugget "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)," Lebowski also gives longer play to some cuts barely sampled in the film, including Elvis Costello's "My Mood Swings." Whether taken as a Coen brothers mix tape, a one-album CD carousel, or an apropos souvenir of one wiggy flick, this is a smart, eclectic buy. --Rickey Wright

CD Reviews

"Wouldn't hold out much for the tape deck OR THE CREDENCE!"
Matthew Perri | San Jose, CA | 06/15/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While this soundtrack is GOOD, the Credence just isn't here, MAN!!! I mean, there's just no...uh, you know...the Credence just isn't um...around the um...well, the music is on, Man, but the Credence just isn't here! I mean, this could have been a simple review, man! But you have my, um...well, my emotions and contextual waves are all in a mess because there's just no CREDENCE! I mean, man...when you make a soundtrack to this film and play two of Credence Clearwater's songs during crucial times in the film...you kinda expect to pick up a record, a cylindrical object with the Credence, man! I mean, SURE! You think you've got a winner, you pack all the other stuff on there! You've even got a better remix of HOTEL CALIFORNIA by the Gypsy Kings(I hate the freakin' Eagles), and that walking song will always remind me of Maude, but I can also seem to recall between all these Kaluha-filled White Russians, there was Credence played TWICE! You would think that it would be here, but it's not, Man!!!This could be a bit more, uh...uh, you know, it could be...uh, it might not be such a simple, uh....YOU KNOW?!?!--Matt"

"The absence of Creedence is an eastern thing, y'all -- note also that the Eagles' "Peaceful Easy Feeling", though present in the movie, is not included either. CCR and the Eagles negate each other, like matter and anti-matter (respectively).

Find Colvin, Creedence, (and Eagles) Elsewhere

"Shawn Colvin's version of Viva Las Vegas, which seems to be the most difficult to find of the "missing" tracks, can be found on the 1995 Doc Pomus Tribute CD 'Till The Night Is Gone' - also somewhat difficult to find, but an excellent CD."
