"A large measure of the film's success can be attributed to
its soundtrack, which features a collection of hit songs reflecting the
political, social, and cultural changes that swept the United States over a
30-year period...[This CD] is a compelling examination of the music that frames
Gump's busstop bench was used "as a prop for filming more
than 30 hours of interviews with the likes of Neil Young, David Crosby, Joan
Baez, Michelle Phillips, and Pete Seeger. [These] frank, informative interviews
constitute the meat of this project, which fills three CD-ROMs."
"Every song in Forrest Gump is a classic; this CD-ROM is
destined to be a classic, too."
Computer Shopper, August 1996
"You may have read the book, seen the film, and listened to
the soundtrack - but you won't really know Forrest Gump until you've navigated
the CD-ROM. GTE Entertainment's three-disc set, Forrest Gump Music, Artists and
Times, skillfully explores the relationship between the award-winning movie and
the 30 years of American history against which it's set."
"All interview were recorded specifically for this project
and share a common focus on the connections between the film, its music, and
the time periods it portrays."
