Home Movies Someone Call Mark Lindsay: Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”...

Exactly 48 years ago this week, Paul Revere and the Raiders were number 1 on the Billboard charts with “Indian Reservation.”

That song isn’t on the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a time in Hollywood,” but four other hits from that long ago pop group fronted by Mark Lindsay are including “Mr. Sun, Mr. Moon.”

Tarantino always curates fascinating soundtracks, and this one is no exception. All these songs drift through 1969 Los Angeles, but the highlights are certainly Neil Diamond’s “Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show” aka “Hot August Night,” Jose Feliciano’s hit cover of “California Dreamin’,” Simon & Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson,” and Deep Purple’s “Hush.”

One song you won’t hear in this movie: the Beatles’ “Helter Skelter.” Thank goodness.

Columbia Records releases the soundtrack tonight. The label needs a hit, and they’re going to have it. Lucky for them, Paul Revere and the Raiders were on Columbia back in the day. They were part of Clive Davis’s league of hitmakers.

PS “Indian Reservation” was just Lindsay on vocals, and two actual legends– Carol Kaye (bass), Hal Blaine (drums) of the Wrecking Crew. (In the video below, the “Raiders” are faking it.)
