Good, But Missing Some Vital Tracks

"While admittedly there are terrific songs on this soundtrack, the running order could have been organized better (even if Robbie Robertson did put this collection together). Many times I had to reprogram just to listen to it all the way through, something I didn't have to do with the short but sweet "Goodfellas" soundtrack. And where is Ray Charles's "Stella By Starlight" and Jerry Vale's "Love Me The Way I Love You", two very prominent songs in the movie! It's personal preference to be sure, but that's what this forum is all about, right?It's still an enjoyable soundtrack as all the other reviewers allude to. Peace."

"When Martin Scorsese put out "GoodFellas", the soundtrack was very good yet very limited because lots of songs were missing. For his next DeNiro-Pesci Mob Film, he had Robbie Robertson organize the music (as he did in Scorsese's "The Color of Money") and the results are very impressive. There is such a good mix of songs that echo scenes from the film. The best example being Jeff Beck's "I Ain't Superstitious". Whenever that comes on I think of that scene where DeNiro catches the guy at the casino cheating. Or when "Matthaus Passion" comes on I think of the scene in the end where they show a montage of casinos exploding. Such a fine film deserves a soundtrack that equals it and that is exactly what this album is. Scorsese knows how to direct and he knows how important the music is as well. This is the finest example of that and it is one of the greatest albums out there. If I could only bring one album on a stranded island this would probably be it."
Best song compilation soundtrack out there. Period.

"From jazzy to rock & roll tunes, this is by far the best song compilation soundtrack I know of, and I have listened to quite a lot of soundtracks in my life.
A stylish movie gets a stylish soundtrack, and while some tunes are missing from this soundtrack, one has to commend the creators of this OST for putting 31 beautiful songs, capping an almost 2 hour listen. It does cost about double the price of regular soundtracks but it's worth every penny.
With Louis Prima, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Fleetwood Mac, Harry Nilsson, B.B. King, Otis Redding and many many other great artists of the golden years, one can have timeless joy every time this compilation goes in the CD player.
While it is a bit pricey, it is thoroughly recommended to anyone who can enjoy some good old jazz and rock & roll. Simply a wonderful collection of songs."
