The Commitments (Soundtrack, Bonus Tracks)
Released: Jan 1991
If the Commitments raise any question, it's this: how did the Irish get so much soul? You'll find a hypothesis in the film, but for the real proof listen to this soundtrack. The band tackles American soul standards with incredible assurance and even became a top touring act in Europe for several years. Sure, you could listen to the originals, but where's the fun in that?
