Easy Rider (Original Soundtrack)CD
The definitive 1960s soundtrack to a definitive 1960s film, this album can be seen as the soundtrack not only to the film, but to the era itself. Ranging in style from proto-metal (Steppenwolf) and dope rock (Fraternity of Man) to folk balladry (Roger McGuinn), EASY RIDER conjures up the wild and surreal images and associations for which the decade has been celebrated.The crunching blues-rock of Jimi Hendrix's "If Six Was Nine" espouses a lo-fi, greasy, axe-wielding ethic that contrasts nicely with the more gentle, reflective melodies interspersed with increasing frequency towards the end. The soundtrack closes with McGuinn crooning the elegiac "Ballad of Easy Rider."Includes liner notes by Mike Ragogna.Includes liner notes by Bud Scoppa.All tracks have been digitally remastered.Additional Tracks; Deluxe EditionProducers: Stephen Blauner, Joel Sill, Steve Barri.Compilation producer: Mike Ragogna.
