THE EMBALMER SOUNDTRACK

PostPosted by TravellingTinker » Thu Dec 07, 2006 2:44 pm

Hi everyone,
Thought I'd tell you a bit about THE EMBALMER, which as well as being Danny's preferred choice of chemical amusement aid, is also the unofficial Withnail and I soundtrack that features all the music the originals didn't as well as dialogue from the film.

At least three official LP soundtrack releases exist: (can also be found on CD)

Image


The first one in the photo above features 14 tracks and is probably the best known as it tends to be the most readily available. The track list is as follows.

1. A Whiter Shade of Pale - King Curtis (5:29)
2. The Wolf (Dundas/Wentworth) (1:33)
3. All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix Experience (4:10)
4. To the Crow (Dundas/Wentworth) (2:22)
5. Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix Experience (4:28
6. While My Guitar Gently Weeps - Beatles (4:44)
7. Marwood Walks (Dundas/Wentworth) (2:14)
8. Monty Remembers (Dundas/Wentworth) (2:01)
9. La Fite (Dundas/Wentworth) (1:10)
10. Hang Out the Stars in Indiana - New Mayfair Dance Orchestra (1:35)
11. Crow Crag (Dundas/Wentworth) (0:56)
12. Cheval Blanc (Dundas/Wentworth) (1:15)
13. My Friend performed by Charlie Kunz (1:28
14. Withnail's Theme (Dundas/Wentworth) (2:39)

Some ebay sellers will describe this list as the COMPLETE Withnail soundtrack, which, if you know your onions, is not the case.

Additional Dundas & Wentworth tracks (Margeaux, Marwood Returns and Mother Black Cap) appear on the other two LPs above. They don't feature the Hendrix tracks however, and none of the official releases feature either the Schubert Sonata Monty plays in his living room or the Charlie Kunz piano music played on the gramophone in the cottage during the card game.

All official soundtracks also cut short Hang Out the Stars in Indiana. Can't imagine why. It's a great track and deserves to be played in full!

The Hendrix tracks were recorded live and are not the ones heard in the film.

None of the soundtracks contain any film dialogue.

THE EMBALMER is my third Withnail Soundtrack project. (No, I don't have a life really do I?) I created it because I bought the original off ebay for a small fortune (45 quid) and found it disappointing. I listened to it and read the inlay cover to cover but wanted MORE MEAT and figured others would probably feel the same way. So I set out to do something about it!

By including ALL the film's music, extensive dialogue and appropriate versions of the Hendrix tracks, as well as a little extra artwork, I felt I'd addressed all the issues I'd had with the original. Why on earth they couldn't have done this in the first place I've no idea.

Image

Oh and by the way, the other advantage is that it won't set you back a ludicrous 65 or 99 quid as it is entirely fan-based rather than ebay rip-off-based. It sells for around a modest 15 notes although the price fluctuates a little depending on production costs.

THE EMBALMER occasionally appears on ebay but producing it in quantity takes weeks of toil and there simply isn't time to keep up an adequate supply. If you're interested in obtaining your very own copy please drop me an email.

Hope this info is useful - I've been getting occasional enquiries and questions about it so I thought I'd post something on the subject.

CHIN CHIN!

Tink.

I thoroughly recommend this to anyone. It is a pure labour of love. Having seen the hopeless CD that came with the last DVD release, I think it is apparent that there will never be anything as good as The Embalmer to serve 'Withnail' fans ever. Thinking about getting another actually to 'burn onto my Mac'. (See that Crooked? I am gradually getting hip to this technological age.)

QUESTION FOR TINK: you said you have done three releases. Can you tell us about the other two?

Sorry that Tink didn't answer this,.. (the terrible cunt),.

Right you fuckers! :wink:

Close Parkin, very close. I called it Uncle Monty's Late Luncheon. I'm a massive Monty fan. McGann and Grant agreed that they felt Griffiths was the 'real' actor in the film. He'd crept the boards doing the Bard's work prior to Withnail afterall (though whether he'd played The Dane I don't know...) He has, I'm sure you'll agree, a je ne sais quoi oh so very special. So anyway, I wanted Monty to have his very own CD and here it is: (Do note the root crops and grapes on the vine on the back and on the inlay. Marvellous.

I think I sold a staggering THREE copies on ebay. Or was it four? There's really no demand for it whatsoever. It's just way too eccentric.

But that's perfect really.

Some pointless trivia:

The Je ne sais quoi line isn't in the script. I think Griffiths came out with it spontaneously on set. He seemed to need to add it in before leaving the room and when you watch it you realise it wouldn't have been quite right without it.

The 'bar code' on the back of the CD is Monty's number plate from his Rolls Royce. Truly tragic but I simply can't help myself... :lol:

31st Jan 2007:

Don't know why I didn't add this in the first place.

Re Schubert, I wanted to include Molto Moderato, Andante Sostenuto & Impromptu D.946-2-Mi Bemol Mayor from the Last Three Piano Sonatas but there wasn't the room. This is some seriously haunting stuff - Not like Scherzo i.e. the one Monty played in his living room in Chelsea which is rather jolly.

Some of the tracks, as you can see, have no affiliation to Monty or Withnail and I at all. The CD inlay notes that accompany the disc explain this. Please see below:


Late Luncheon Inlay Notes:


[i]Welcome to Montague H. Withnail’s Late Luncheon, which as you’re well aware, is taken at three in the afternoon at Crow Crag Cottage, as a battered, classic Mark II Jaguar, one headlight missing, finds its own level outside in the mud, one cold weekend in Cumbria during the autumn of 1969.
A genuine eccentric, or madman depending on your point of view, Monty, with his apparent fondness for root crops, loves the finest wines and the stage (despite an expired acting career): no surprise therefore that he is both animated and extremely entertaining. This disc aims to both complement your own Late Luncheon and to epitomise Monty. It begins accordingly with a light-hearted string of tunes by renowned Pennsylvanian medley-man, Charlie Kunz. Then we hear sentimental Al Bowlly (accompanied by Ray Noble) with up-tempo tunes released during the 1930s, including the full version of Hang Out the Stars in Indiana.
The tracks by Dundas and Wentworth are clearly essential for true authenticity and lend the compilation a “je ne sais quoi, oh so very specialâ€

I am now the proud owner of my very own copy of The Embalmer and I have to say it is absolutely brilliant.

Tink you have done a marvelous job here in producing this and I thank you for producing a copy for me so quickly and it arrived just before Christmas - PERFECT!

I have played it over and over and I just can't get enough of it.

Many many thanks and, if anyone out there hasn't got themselves a copy yet, then do so as you will not be disappointed.

Cheers and Chin-chin.
I shall miss you too. Chin-chin.
