You Can't Always Get What You Want

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is the first of two soundtrack CDs issued for the movie "The Big Chill" (the other being The Big Chill: More Songs From The Original Soundtrack) and it contains the more prominent of the songs used in the film including:
"I Heard it Through the Grapevine" - this is the song played during the opening titles.
"Joy to the World" - this is the song played during the credits.
"Ain't Too Proud to Beg" - the song playing when the yuppies dance around the kitchen.
All of the songs from the film that are missing from this CD can be found on the other CD, mentioned above, with the exception of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" - the Rolling Stones song played at the funeral. This song is sorely missed from these soundtrack albums and its omission is apparently due to the fact that the Rolling Stones do not allow their songs to be included on albums other than their own. For people trying to obtain this song, it can be found on a number of Rolling Stones CDs including Let It Bleed [DSD]. Even without this song, however, this is still a great CD containing some of the best songs of the Big Chill era."
