Colgems Debate: Guess Who's Coming To Dinner

As I said in a previous post, I was slightly disappointed with the Guess Who's Coming to Dinner soundtrack album. I really didn't think that the quality of the music matched the level of this classic film.

I know many people disagree with me--let's hear what your opinion is.

New Colgems Upload

Continuing my mission to release to the masses everything on the Colgems label, I have just uploaded the soundtrack to the groundbreaking film, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Starring Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, this movie was considered rather revolutionary during its time, as far as its handling of race relations were concerned. Today, the film is kind of dated, but its points still reverberate to this day.

As far as the sountrack, most of it should be credited to Frank DeVol. For such a groundbreaking movie, I have always thought that the soundtrack was kind of lame.

See what you think. The soundtrack can be accessed at
