Album Review

The music from this motion picture consists of period tunes heard in the Bronx and elsewhere in the 1950s and '60s, starting, naturally, with homeboys Dion & the Belmonts and running through the Jimi Hendrix Experience. That's quite a stretch, of course, but it is bridged by interludes given over to re-creations of the period sound by Cool Change. And from the Cleftones' "Little Girl of Mine" to the Rascals' "A Beautiful Morning," the selections are such classics it's hard to argue with them. Still, without the movie's images to hold them together, the collection seems virtually random.
