Format:Audio CD
I stumbled across this CD on Rhapsody today and have to say, I'm just stunned. I haven't heard these tracks sound so fresh since sitting in a movie theater, circa 1969. Even then, I don't believe the quality matched the listening experience this CD provides. I don't normally address other reviewers, but I stongly disagree with a reviewer who said to stick with the earlier, single CD. This is worlds better audially. Every instrument, vocal nuance, backup singer, etc. is crisply, distortion-freely rendered.

It's as good a job of remastering as I've ever heard. Even Blue
Cheer's "Summertime Blues," which sounds notoriously muddy and indistinct on most compilations, sounds as if it was recorded using contemporary, state of the art sound boards. Other tracks fare even better.
The discs are rather pricey (in comparison with the single CD compilation), but well worth the money. This is definitive Golden Age of Rock history here. Steppenwolf, Hendrix, Procol Harem, The Seeds (one of the most overlooked bands of the era), Richie Havens (I had forgotten he even contributed to the soundtrack, but a musical, twelve string guitar genius, nonetheless!), The Moodies, and on and on. I'm putting my order in today, as Rhapsody doesn't include all the tracks for listening or downloading. Ring up another sale, Mr Bezos! I've gotta have this one!!

4.0 out of 5 stars SOUNDTRACK OF �69 October 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Music From The Soundtrack EASY RIDER" is actually the soundtrack of a culture. "A man went looking for America and couldn't find it anywhere..."
Two of STEPPENWOLF's best songs are included here, "The Pusher" and "Born To Be Wild". An interesting side note is that Hoyt Axton is the writer of "The Pusher". The Band's song "The Weight", from their 1968 album "Music From Big Pink" was performed in the motion picture but was not available for the soundtrack. Smith's recording of "The Weight" is included on the soundtrack, and they do an excellant job worthy of Robbie Robertson's respect. "Wasn't Born To Follow" by The Byrds is here. One of Jimi Hendrix's masterpiece's, "If Six Was Nine", is included. Roger McGuinn, from The Byrds, covers Bob Dylan's'"It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)." Roger McGuinn is also given credit for "The Ballad Of Easy Rider", although Bob Dylan wrote the words while Roger McGuinn put the music to it. "If You Want To Be A Bird" by The Holy Modal Rounders is pretty weird and a country music song about bogarting a joint, "Don't Bogart Me" by Fraternity Of Man, is just strange. But all in all, the music holds up quite well.
If you like THE BYRDS, BOB DYLAN & THE BAND, THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE, and STEPPENWOLF, then you will love this collection of songs.
As a teen I remember searching far and wide, in countless used record emporiums, for this album. I snatched up every copy I could get hold of. Now, at age 38, I still have one remaining LP in a protective plastic sleeve and the newly released CD version. I'm so happy, I could just $#!+.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electric Prunes, anyone? August 1, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Ahhhh, memories. Who can ever forget the countless times we all sang along with the Fraternity on "Don't Bogart Me", or cranking up the volume to hear the Panheads roar through three gears right before Steppenwolf crashes into "Born To Be Wild"? Smith's rendition of "The Weight" on the soundtrack is still easy to listen to, and Robbie and the boys should feel complemented. When Jimi rapped his way through "If Six Were Nine", we related to the hatred we inspired in all the " white collar conservatives flashing down the street.." My favorite is still the " Kyrie" from the latin mass by the Prunes. Wah-Wah pedals still rule in my rock book. Old vinyl gone, lost, stolen? Go for it again. You'll be glad you did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's The Electric Flag? May 18, 2005
By riot67
Format:Audio CD
The Easy Rider soundtrack was tainted from the very beginning for two reasons:1)the exclusion of The Bands version of "The Weight" replaced with the far inferior version by Smith 2)The exclusion of The Electric Flags "Flash,Bam, Pow". Despite these shortcomings the Lp worked. Now 30 odd years later it would seem that when and "Expanded" version was released the kinks would have been worked out. This however is not the case. The Bands version of "The Weight" is included--on side two with a bunch of songs that have a lot to do with the 60's and nothing to do with the movie. Why wasn't Smith's version of "The Weight" dropped alltogether and the Bands inserted in proper sequence as it should have been all along. Additionally The Electric Flag is still missing. What gives? The first disc is the same as what was released 36 years ago and disc two is nothing more than a 60's compilation of songs that aren't even in line with the feel of the movie as the original Lp was--the reason the soundtrack worked is that it coincided so well with the film. Overall this is a highly disappointing release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories of my youthful rebellious stage. August 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The movie was one of the defining motion pictures of my teen age years. The music augmented perfectly the movie. The soundtrack was a bit less than satisfactory with the omission of "The Weight" by the Band and the substitution of the song by Smith, but it was only a minor flaw. I had played the vinyl album a multitude of times so that it was pretty much unplayable and it was with some satisfaction that I was able to find it on CD. I would recommend the movie and the sound track to anyone who wants a taste of the '60s.
