Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, February 1996

"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 the film."

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."
