NATIONAL LAMPOON'S ANIMAL HOUSE (20th Anniversary Edition) is an Enhanced CD containing both a full audio program as well as multimedia computer files with trailers and EPK from ANIMAL HOUSE.Digitally remastered using 20-bit technology by Dan Hersch at DigiPrep, Hollywood, California.Animal House is a classic frat-house comedy, full of low-brow humor and outrageously entertaining vulgarity. The soundtrack nearly captures that atmosphere on record, even though it has a couple of flaws. The meat ofthe soundtrack lies in a selection of great rock & roll and R&B oldies, including Chris Montez's "Let's Dance," and Bobby Lewis' "Tossin and Turnin'," Paul & Paula's "Hey Paula," and Sam Cooke's "Twistin' the Night Away" and "Wonderful World."ow good these tracks are -- and they are great -- their impact is lessened by the re-recorded oldies from Lloyd Williams ("Shout," "Shama Lama Ding Dong") and John Belushi ("Money," "Louie Louie"), as well as two light-weight Steven Bishop songs and ElmerBernstein's instrumental "Faber College Theme." While those songs reflect the boozy pleasures of the movie, they don't sound quite as good when isolated on record. Nevertheless, the soundtrack remains a good party -- even if its momentum sags occasionally. - Stephen Thomas ErlewineOriginal score by Elmer Bernstein.Recorded at RCA Studio, New York, New York and Sound Factory West, Hollywood, California.Personnel: Chris Montez, John Belushi, Lloyd Williams, Sam Cooke (vocals); Jay Berliner (acoustic guitar); Jeff Layton, Melvin "Wah Wah" Ragin, Bob Rose (electric guitar); Fred Jackson, Jr. (tenor saxophone); Dennis Morouse (baritone saxophone, horns); George Young (horns); Paul Griffin (piano, background vocals); Rob Mounsey (electric piano, ba
