Jack nitzsche heroes music from the original motion picture soundtrack

An energetic, swaggering, wisecracking, non-conformist, rebellious patient/prisoner Randle Patrick (R. P.) "Mac" McMurphy (Jack Nicholson), 38 years old, is escorted into the ward where he meets some of the bizarre, memorable patients/inmates (most of whom are voluntarily committed):

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

On Taj Mahal’s 1969 two-record album Giant Step/De Ole Folks, Davis was credited with playing organ, piano, and guitar. Gently chorused, Curtis Mayfield-derived fingerpicking made “Ain’t Gwine Whistle Dixie (Any Mo’),” which Davis co-wrote, a staple on FM radio stations, while “ Six Days on the Road ” provided a great platform for his country licks. Around this time, Jesse and Taj made cameo appearances on Mike Bloomfield’s Live at Bill Graham’s Fillmore West album.

10. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) - Various
If you hear ''The Blue Danube'' without immediately picturing gleaming spacecraft doing cosmic cartwheels, you have far greater powers of dissociation than we do. Or maybe you're just one of the few who has never seen Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi classic and had your classical-loving world rocked by his marriage of 19th-century music and 21st-century imagery. When Kubrick dumped the score he'd commissioned from Alex North and decided to use his own temp track as soundtrack to ''the ultimate trip,'' he ensured that few would ever again listen to ''Also Sprach Zarathustra'' without thinking of space babies.

11. Oklahoma! (1955) - Rodgers and Hammerstein
The classic Rodgers and Hammerstein song score had already won America's heart via a Broadway cast album. But it got sun-drenched and bronzed when director Fred Zinnemann chose to shoot the film on location (in Arizona). Audiences who wanted a souvenir of the CinemaScope-size movie got a grand one in this album, which happened to sound, yes, as big as all outdoors. ''Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin','' surreys, fringe, friendly farmers, a state anthem so rousing it almost makes our national one seem somnolent -- all this glorious Americana takes us on location, in our imaginations, each time we listen anew.

12. The Harder They Come (1973) - Various
This vital compilation introduced most Americans to reggae music, and for that alone it deserves our lofty ranking. But ''Harder'''s relevance isn't merely historical. Nearly 30 years after its release, the soundtrack remains one of the few non-Bob Marley albums to make it into the collections of casual reggae fans. And it's no mystery why; these 12 tracks -- featuring Jimmy Cliff's spiritual and sweet ''Many Rivers to Cross,'' the rude-boy menace of his title track, and the Maytals' ''Pressure Drop'' -- are as heartfelt and urgent (in their own gentle, loping way) as anything coming out of the States at the time.

13. Psycho (1960) - Bernard Herrmann
According to composer Bernard Herrmann, Alfred Hitchcock's instructions were simple: ''Do what you like, but only one thing I ask of you: Please write nothing for the murder in the shower. That must be without music.'' Herrmann was an independent cuss, thank God. The harpy chorus of violin shrieks that accompany Marion Crane's death changed the art of scoring as surely as ''Psycho'' altered film history. But for proof of his greater subtlety, listen to the music during the heroine's earlier flight from the law. It's not so much foreboding as sad -- mourning Crane even as she caroms toward her fate.

14. Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs (1937) - Frank Churchill/Larry Morey
The song score for Walt Disney's first full-length animated feature wasn't dopey or sleepy, just exemplary. Bonus points for history making: It was the first real soundtrack album ever. Prior to this, no one had taken the actual soundtrack from a film and transferred it to disc -- or discs, we should say, since the original release was on a set of three 10-inch 78s. Someday more princely formats would come, but there's a good reason why this chestnut is perennially in print: The Frank Churchill-Larry Morey tunes proved an original 'toon could equal or better Broadway's musical-comedy best.

15. American Graffiti (1973) - Various
Believe it or not, kids, there was a time when ''oldies'' weren't cool. That was still the case in '73, when George Lucas asked ''Where were you in '62?'' and helped popularize the notion of nostalgia for the recent past. He even invented a plausible reason for the film's wall-to-wall music, a then-revolutionary conceit: Nearly every character was near a radio tuned to Wolfman Jack. Thus it came to be that a generation of Vietnam-hardened hippies was suddenly grooving to ''Green Onions,'' turning a double album full of artists who'd been bypassed by the counterculture into an unlikely retro smash.
