Lets take a trip up north, all the way to little Barrhead, Albaerta. We are listening to the 7th and 8th grade concert and stage bands with John Leonard directing. The track picks are pretty tame, except for the awesome version of “Son of a Preacher Man.” Why they picked this song, I have no idea. Surely they could not have predicted Quentin Tarantino picking the same song 16 years later for a pivotal scene in the movie Pulp Fiction. (The scene where Vincent Vega is waiting fro Mia to come down and she is talking to him over the intercom.) And you know what? Maybe old Quentin should have used the Barrhead Bands version instead, because it really is quite awesome. Hang in there for the hand claps. (The MPM loves hand claps!)
Another funny thing about this record is the choice of cover art. It seems that Fantasy Sound was getting a lot of use out of this water cashing on the rocks shot. From the Candian blog Five Bucks on By-Tor we can see a reuse of the same photo for another school band.
