The Big Lebowski - Original Soundtrack LP

Mercury

The Coen Brothers’ 1998 film noir spoof, The Big Lebowski, with Jeff Bridges’ shaggy title character, “The Dude,” has gained a fervent following, complete with annual conventions, where phrases like “the Dude abides” have entered the vernacular. The Coens’ flare for brilliantly incorporating music in their films has been one of their many hallmarks and The Big Lebowski soundtrack has become just as much of a cult classic as the movie itself. Album highlights include songs accompanying a trio of bowling scenes: Bob Dylan’s New Morning track, “The Man In Me” over the title credits, the Busby Berkeley-influenced psychedelia of Kenny Rogers and the First Edition’s “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition is In”) and the Gypsy Kings’ redefining take on the Eagles’ “Hotel California,” as John Turturro licks his bowling ball. The Big Lebowski soundtrack will now be made available for the first time on vinyl courtesy of Universal Music Enterprises.
