The Best Little Wh*rehouse In Texas Soundtrack
Fabulous, fabulous sountrack. As far as musicals go, this soundtrack is in the same league as "Grease" and "Little Shop Of Horrors". I'm not a big country music fan per say, but this music isn't exactly country. It's more like broadway-goes-country. The whoel country-western thing was big in the early 80's,even in California. Who could foregt the hit show "Dallas"? "I Will Always Love You" is a classic song and the whole c.d is awesome.
The soundtrack for the film has been released on CD, Cassette, and LP. With a melodic score that compliments the musical numbers, it's a shame that the orchestral score was omitted from the soundtrack album. Retaining 7 of the songs from the stage version, which were written by Carol Hall, each was given a splashy film treatment with full orchestrations and chorus arrangements.
Also featured were three original songs written by Dolly Parton (though the third, "Where Stallions Run," was omitted from the soundtrack album and most prints of the film). Dolly Parton actually wrote and filmed a fourth song for the film. The song was entitled "A Gamble Either Way". It was eventually cut from the film, but made its debut on Dolly's "Burlap and Satin" album. [Thanks to Bill Pavao]
There are several inconsistancies with vocals and verses between the film and the soundtrack album -- verses from "The Aggie Song" and "A Lil' Ole Bitty Pissant Country Place" appear on the soundtrack though they were deleted from the film. During the song "Hard Candy Christmas," Dolly takes over all the vocal parts on the soundtrack album that the prostitutes sang in the film. I would highly recommend the soundtrack to anyone who likes the film or Parton.Update Us
