Another in a series of wildly eclectic compilation soundtracks (see THE BIG LEBOWSKI). It's not often that one can sample Bob Dylan, Tom Jones and Perry Como all on one disc. Yet the effect is not all that disparate, thanks in part to the brief spoken excerpts from Hunter Thompson's gonzo screed on which the film is based. Given the drug-drenched nature of the narrative, the selections are skewed to tried-and-true hippie psychedelic classics ( "White Rabbit", "Expecting To Fly"), except for Como's "Magic Moments" and Debbie Reynolds' "Tammy," which veer towards the surreal.
Of course, Tom Jones ' "She's A Lady" is a little more appropriate, given the Las Vegas setting. Composers Tomoyasu Hotei and Ray Cooper also provide "A Drug Score," an effective 3-part acid freak jam scattered throughout the disc. The whole goofy trip ends with The Dead Kennedys' thrashing cover of "Viva Las Vegas." Given the proto-punk ethos of Hunter Thompson's writing and its roots in West Coast psychedelia , this surprise appearance by San Francisco's witty homegrown punks makes a twisted kind of sense.
