Mike Myers’ ultra-mod ’60s spy spoof Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery skillfully pulls humor from the differences and similarities between the ’60s and ’90s; unsurprisingly the soundtrack balances and wryly reworks pop hits from both eras. With original Burt Bacharach songs as well as some retro-style gems, from the funky acid jazz of the James Taylor Quartet to the Lightning Seeds’ trip-hop reworking of the Turtles’ “You Showed Me”. Double LP pressed on one pink and one orange vinyl.
Previously available on CD, released for the first time on vinyl.
