"Made In Dagenham" is the story about the fight for women's rights set against the backdrop of 1960s England, and as we noted in our review, the film features "a solid soundtrack that is interesting, largely because it doesn’t feature songs that are overused for the period." And as the official release reveals, this is definitely true.

"Made In Dagenham" is the story about the fight for women's rights set against the backdrop of 1960s England, and as we noted in our review, the film features "a solid soundtrack that is interesting, largely because it doesn’t feature songs that are overused for the period." And as the official release reveals, this is definitely true.

Spanning 17 tracks, "Made In Dagenham" is a pretty solid little time capsule featuring a good mix of oldies that aren't your standard fare. The album -- which should be noted features music from and inspired by the film -- features soul/r&b legends The Temptations and James Brown, reggae icon Desmond Dekker, rockers The Kinks, Small Faces and Traffic, and the unique voices of Dusty Springfield and Mama Cass. The disc is capped off by the title song, written by Billy Bragg and performed by Sandie Shaw.

The album hit digital outlets last week on November 16th, or you can import the physical disc from the UK if you really want a hard copy. "Made In Dagenham" is currently rolling out in limited release. Full tracklisting after the jump:
