Dirty Dancing: The Deluxe 25th Anniversary Edition

Dirty Dancing Deluxe 25th anniversary soundtrack

Dirty Dancing is one of my all time favorite movies. How could it not be? I love the music, the dancing, the cast and the setting. There was just something so special about watching Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey together, it was magical and still is every time I watch. If you know someone who loves this movies, then Dirty Dancing: The Deluxe Anniversary Edition would make a wonderful gift!

This 25th Anniversary CD package is a celebration of a movie that has touched so many. Legacy Recordings listened to the fans when they created this special fan edition package by including requested features, such as dedicating the set to the late Patrick Swayze. The original “Lift” image was kept as the edition’s cover because of an overwhelming fan vote to keep it, and the included booklet shares photos and scenes from the movie that we will all remember fondly.

“From the birth, 25 years ago,” writes executive producer Jimmy Ienner, “to the never-ending success of the movie and the soundtracks, I’m very proud of all my great producers and the extremely talented artists that contributed so much to the very satisfying roller­coaster ride called Dirty Dancing. I’m also very indebted to anyone involved in any way on the music and the film sides of this wonderful journey. Lastly, but no less important, to the devoted fans around the world for the unbelievable continued support. Keep carrying the watermelons and enjoying the lifts.”

Dirty Dancing 25th anniversary deluxe edition soundtrack

In this special edition, the original soundtrack is featured just as it appeared in 1987. Now, we are able to read the accompanying commentary by the artists who contributed the movie’s soundtrack.

Did you know:
The original Dirty Dancing soundtrack spent 18 weeks at #1 on the @Billboard 200 album sales charts. Did you buy it when it first came out in 1987?

We learn how each song was created and how those songs came to be included in the original soundtrack. And, we get to hear a little bit about the experiences of the artists who sang them. I found it very interesting and learned quite a bit!

Besides the music itself, I love how photo focused this package is. The included photo cards are a wonderful addition and a great collectible!
