various artists vinyl soundtrackThe HBO television series looks like it is going to be a wild ride, so you would have to assume that the soundtrack is going to be just as hot as well. Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger are involved so you got a quality storyteller alongside a rock music icon behind it. The series is about the music coming out of New York City in the Seventies. Obviously the music has the vibe and high energy of the music of that place and era.  Plenty of variety in regards to genres as there is pop, soul, rock and disco to give you a well-rounded idea of what was going on. All together it gives the rather grimy feel and sound of what was being produced in the Big Apple. When I got my hands on the review copy I have to say I was impressed from the get go based on the ton of music involved alone. There are eighteen tracks on the soundtrack from such diverse musical acts as Ruth Brown, Otis Redding, Mott the Hoople, David Johansen (New York Dolls), The Edgar Winter Group and Foghat. You get a nice mix of legends alongside rising stars. Highlights include hot rock single “No Good” by Kaleo, series theme song “Sugar Daddy” by Sturgill Simpson, “Slippin’ Into Darkness” by Soda Machine and “Cha Cha Twist” by Ty Taylor.
