Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas soundtracks

The songs from the film "Fear and Loathing in Last Vegas" are now re-released on vinyl.

Soundtracks from "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" reissued on vinyl

The soundtracks for Terry Gilliam's cult film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas were re-released on vinyl in summer 2019 to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the film's release. Such a gift to movie fans and collectors was made by the Geffen label.

"Psychedelics are almost irrelevant in a city where you can visit the casino anytime you want." (Phrase from the movie)

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is an adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's psychedelic novel starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro. The film's selection of tracks includes songs by artists such as Bob Dylan and Tom Jones, as well as a score by Ray Cooper.
Cooper is a session percussionist who has worked with George Harrison, Billy Joel, Rick Wakeman, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd and Elton John.

By the way, the Rolling Stones track "Sympathy for the Devil" plays a prominent role in the book, but it was not included in the film or soundtrack. The reason is simple: the copyright holders demanded 300,000 $ from the creators of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for the right to use the song in the film.
