Quentin Tarantino Kicks Facts on Wax

A note about the condition of the older recordings I am using on this soundtrack – a lot of these came from my personal vinyl collection. Instead of having the record companies give me new digitally cleaned up versions of these recordings from the 60’s and 70’s. I wanted to use the vinyl I’ve been listening to for years – complete with all the pops and cracks. I even kept the sound of the needle being put down on the record. Basically because I wanted people’s experience to be the same as mine when they hear the soundtrack for the first time.
