Can you believe it’s been almost 10 years since the coming-of-age comedy Superbad hit theaters? Brought to us by the producer of Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, this laugh out loud comedy is an “iconic comedy…a true classic of its times” (Pete Hammond, Maxim). Originally premiering in theaters on August 17, 2007, the film is scored by Lyle Workman (Standup Guys, The 40-Year-Old Virgin), whose recent work on Netflix’s popular Love series (Season 2 premieres March 10) reminds us that, damn, Lyle really knows how to bring the funk!
Superbad (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) features a mix of Lyle Workman songs written for the film, performed by James Brown’s backing band with Bootsy Collins of Parliament, and killer tracks from The Roots, Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, Rick James, The Bar-Keys and more. The vinyl is limited to 2,000 on double vinyl, three sides of music, and one side a stunning screen print! Watch the interview below for more on this classic album, out now on Lakeshore Records. The Superbad movie is available now on VOD (rent it on iTunes) and Blu-ray/DVD (get it here). More on his work for Love on Netflix below.
Catch up on Season 1 of Love, the popular Netflix comedy from Judd Apatow, writer of Knocked Up and This Is 40, starring Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs! The series returns on March 10, so there’s no time like the present to Netflix and chill on this series that follows a couple who must navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment and other things they were hoping to avoid. Soundtrack featuring score by Lyle Workman out now on Lakeshore Records!
