My Blueberry Nights has been described as a young girl’s soul-searching cross-country journey, with which she hopes to rectify her confusion over love. However, this soundtrack CD is not at all confused about quality music. It’s particularly stacked with fine female singers, both old (Ruth Brown, Mavis Staples) and new (Norah Jones, Cat Power). There is also plenty of fine Ry Cooder instrumental music, which is collated with oldies like Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness” and a great new cover of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” from Cassandra Wilson. If a fine soul music collection is something you happen to be in search of, this soundtrack is sure to satisfy.
