Say Anything… Expanded Soundtrack!

3 Comments

We are super excited to partner with the one and only Mondo for the Say Anything… Expanded Soundtrack on Vinyl! This has been three years in the making, but we know you’ll think it was worth the time and effort. Preorders for this limited release begin over at the Mondo Shop right now!

Cameron had this to say: “We love Mondo. Their work celebrates the same passionate, fun and fan-centric approach we’ve always tried to bring to our movies and soundtracks,” “Working with Mondo on our vinyl releases and the rarity-filled packages… well, it’s a sonic dream come true.”

Here’s a taste with an exclusive first listen to Nancy’s demo of “Sit Down I Think I Love You”. A cover of the Buffalo Springfield song (written by Stephen Stills) that was not used for the film.



In addition to the original soundtrack, there’s a 2nd LP featuring demos written and recorded for the film including Nancy Wilson’s Joe Lies. There’s also the Smithereens demo for “A Girl Like You”, an amazing live version of Peter Gabriel’s ” In Your Eyes” and a slew of songs featured in the film, but not on the original soundtrack. The LP also includes 16-page booklet with never before seen photos and extensive liner notes with  Cameron, John Cusack, Ione Skye, Lili Taylor, and Nancy Wilson. Here’s the complete tracklisting:

 Side One

1. All For Love – Nancy Wilson

2. Cult of Personality (Live) – Living Colour

3. One Big Rush – Joe Satriani

4. You Want It – Cheap Trick

5. Taste The Pain – Red Hot Chili Peppers

Side Two

1. In Your Eyes – Peter Gabriel

2. Stripped (Live) – Depeche Mode

3. Skankin’ To The Beat – Fishbone

4. Within’ Your Reach – The Replacements

5. Keeping The Dream Alive – Freiheit

 Side Three – Bonus Tracks

1. Take Five – Dave Brubeck

2. Toy Box – Soundgarden

3. Back In The Saddle – Aerosmith

4. Brandy (You’re A Fine Girl) – Looking Glass

5. Turn The Other Way – Fishbone

Side Four – Bonus Tracks and Demos

1. A Girl Like You (Demo) – The Smithereens

2. Sit Down I think I Love You (Demo) – Nancy Wilson

3. The Joe Lies Demos – Nancy Wilson

i. He Hurts Me

ii. That Will Never Be Me

iii. He Cries

iv. Man Child

4. In Your Eyes (Live) – Peter Gabriel

I know…it’s finally here. Thanks for your patience (and all of your emails over the years asking about it too!).

Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs

0 Comments

Nobody gives you a better peak behind the curtain than Neal Preston. As Queen’s longtime photographer, Neal has been embedded with the band for all their albums and phases. What he gives you now is his specialty — he puts you on the stages and in the rooms where the magic happens. Brian May wasn’t kidding when he said he feels like Neal is a member of the band. This is his most intimate collection of Queen photography yet, and that’s saying a lot.
