Russ Meyer Soundtrack Vinyl

Sure, Russ Meyer films aren’t for EVERYONE…it takes a certain kind of movie lover to truly appreciate Meyer’s outrageous style. But for those of us who DO love this type of insanity, the soundtrack albums are practically indispensable–not only as artifacts and nostalgia for the drive-in era, but the packaging and presentation itself is pretty damn appealing.

The series of LPs this title belongs to feature gatefold sleeves, a booklet and a LOT of images from these films. Not-Safe-For-Work type images.

The LPs are sadly getting harder to find, but when you DO find them, grab ’em. If you aren’t sure whether this record is for you, have a look at the trailer below for Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! If you aren’t immediately grabbed by this, chances are good the record might…not…be…for you.

But if Tura Satana makes it for you, you need this album. That’s all I’m saying.

It’s true that not everything in the Russ Meyer catalog is as jaw-droppingly cool as Faster Pussycat!, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, or his backwoods Nazi epic, UP! But the ones that work are 100% entertainment.

Meyer was a man who truly understood his audience–which back then included a large number of drive-in moviegoers. And once you get the idea that these movies were made with the idea that they might be viewed from the back seat of an old Rambler or something, it’s a lot easier to understand them in context…but let’s not get all psychobabble-a-rific here.

I sell Russ Meyer soundtracks whenever I can get my hands on them, and if you have any to sell, do get in touch. You can buy Russ Meyer’s Lorna, Vixen, Faster PussyCat! Kill! Kill! Original Motion Picture Soundtracks from Turntabling via the Discogs store. This LP is available first-come, first-served. Get it while you can!

And in the meantime, have a look at the awesome trailer for Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! It’s a stunner.

 



Russ Meyer Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Picture Disc Vinyl LP

Russ Meyer’s Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is a classic of the drive-in exploitation genre. ¬†As the trailer says, “The sweetest kittens have the sharpest claws.” My favorite line from the movie, asked by a crotchety desert-dweller; “You girls a bunch of nudists or are you just…short of clothes?” How can you possibly go wrong with this movie?

For a start, you get Tura Satana wiping the floor with the dudes and rolling around in the hay to boot. This is the movie that put Russ Meyer in the hearts and minds of drive-in denizens everywhere, even if it took a little time to get there. And on the soundtrack front, the music for this is really fun–that blurry line between late 50s camp and groovy beatnik watusi madness. The theme song alone is worth the price of admission.

People who pull serious faces about cinema give Russ Meyer the short shrift, but these weren’t SUPPOSED to be Zaffirelli or Bergman pictures. They are what they are. Have a look at the trailer for Faster Pussycat! at the end of this post. If you haven’t experienced a Russ Meyer movie yet, you’re in for a treat. We recommend seeing Beyond the Valley of the Dolls first, but Faster Pussycat! is a good second choice.
