The infamous Forrest Gump quote “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get” is often cited as a profound guide to helping us accept the unforeseen curve balls that life will inevitably throw up, despite our best efforts. As quasi-philosophical similes go it is one of the more ludicrous, as it begs the question, “What cheap-o box of chocolates are you buying that doesn’t even have a guide to the included assortment?”

Thankfully, this fantastic re-issue of the Forrest Gump soundtrack has no such appellative problems, and we know exactly what we’re getting – which is over 30 seminal tracks that both held a mirror up to and defined 1960s and 1970s America, by artists such Elvis, Wilson Pickett, Joan Baez, Aretha, CCR, Dylan, The Doors, The Supremes, The Byrds, Fleetwood to name just a few. “All killer no filler” is an overused phrase, but for such an incredible compilation it’s more than justified.
