Soundtrack to one of 2017’s most compelling films, masterminded by director Luca Guadagnino and supervised by Robin Urdang. Those who’ve seen Call Me By Your Name will attest to the fact that the music colors the film just as much as the rustic Italian countryside that it takes place in. The soundtrack, then, is a real collectors item for fans of the movie; a sun-kissed blend of Italian pop (Franco Battiato, Loredana Bertè), impressionistic compositions by Bach, Satie and Revel, modern classical (John Adams) and a pair of rare Ryuichi Sakamoto piano joints… the real prize, though, is the inclusion of three Sufjan Stevens numbers (“Futile Devices” from The Age Of Adz and two new songs) that anchor the film. If nothing else, it’s a great excuse to have The Psychedelic Furs’ “Love My Way” and Giorgio Moroder & Joe Esposito’s “Lady Lady Lady” on vinyl. This limited edition comes on heavy 180 gram 'countryside green' colored vinyl, gorgeously-packaged in a glossy gatefold, with glossy inner sleeves all housed in a peach-scented sleeve inside a thick PVC outer sleeve. Some choice quotes from the movie etched in the runout grooves is the peach cherry on top. Recommended.
