Love the movie ‘The Color Purple’ but the album is one of my favourites of all time 🙂

A great film. I never thought about buying the sound track. I have played The Last of the Mohicans’ soundtrack to death, though.
Happy New Year!

It has some awesome music (sort you don’t often hear) – I went through a phase where I kept buying sound tracks to music – it’s amazing how you don’t notice a lot of the songs as you watch the movie (often they have it as low and background) so getting the album can be well worth it, especially as the music producers put such effort (usually) into get just the right mix of songs.

Superlative 🙂 And utterly compelling!
I agree Kate 😉

Haven’t seen the movie, but I did read the book… Thanks, Gabe, I enjoyed this.

The movie is a real tear jerker adeeyoyo (as I am sure the book would be too).

As a jazz mucician most of my heroes are black, but it took the Goldbergs of America to win hearts and pave the way for a black secretary of state (Rice), a black general (Powell) and eventually a black president.
Haven’t seen the movie either, so that comment is probably a non-sequitur, but after seeing this clip, I know I will (at least) enjoy the music!

I’m sure you’d love the music Stafford – my album got ruined in a flood so I will have to get a new copy (maybe on cd – not record as was the original – haha)

Beautiful song. One of my favourites. I love the movie and cry every time I see it. It is brilliant!

It’s that sort of movie isn’t it Selma – I cried and cried!
