Withnail & I CD Soundtrack

Cover of the Withnail and I CD Soundtrack

The Withnail and I soundtrack is now discontinued and notoriously hard to track down. The original music was composed by David Dundas and Rick Wentworth and it is one of the only soundtracks ever to feature an original Beatles song. While My Guitar Gently Weeps only appears on the soundtrack thanks to the fact that George Harrison was closely involved with the films production company, HandMade Films.

If you're lucky you can occasionally find a copy here. If you snooze, you lose though.

Because the Jimmy Hendrix songs weren't licensed correctly, the Withnail and I CD soundtrack only enjoyed a limited release. Fans of the film's opening song, A Whiter Shade of Pale, will be interested to know that this was recorded at King Curtis's very last performance. He was shot after the gig in the car park outside.
