From the Label

Music and Lyrics by Shel Silverstein (1970)The true story of Australian Robin Hood/Jesse James-style outlaw Ned Kelly stars Mick Jagger, who contributes an a capella version of "Wild Colonial Boy" to the soundtrack. Featuring words and music by acclaimed author and poet Shel Silverstein, and vocals by Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and Tom Ghent, the soundtrack is very western sounding with twangy bawdy ballads and hoe-down music.

4. What Do You Mean I Don't Like - Mick Jagger
5. Son Of A Scoundrel - Kris Krstofferson

Good performance by Mick Jagger as the out law Ned Kelly. Compelling story of the conflict between the poor Australians and the lordly English. The best part though is the music. Irish ballads by Mick Jaggger and ballads by Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristoferson make this worth buying for the music as well as the movie. The sound track is worth buying separately too.

Okay so Mic Jagger was an odd choice to play Ned Kelly but so what? Before this movie came out most of the world didn't know who the Kellys were. Perhaps the movie made people decide to learn more which is why we now have at least two very good books on Ned Kelly's life. But this is supposed to be about the sound track and I'll get to that. Waylon Jennings was brilliant on this album. Every song moves the movie along and actually comments on the action on the screen. Once you hear it you'll never forget Blame it On the Kellys or Daddy Does His Ranching (Dad's a cattle thief) in the Evening.

I bought this video for the Waylon Jennings soundtrack. The songs are SUPER! But the movie had too much violence for my taste. So I will look for a Waylon soundtrack CD just to hear the music.

Saw the movie Ned Kelly long ago and it wasn't as bad as the reviews. Searched for the soundtrack/music from for years and gave up. A recent TV replay prompted me to search Amazon.com and "walla" there she be. I find the musci to still be enjoyable listening, but I like ballads about the little guy and the oppressed.

as a straight forward attempt to tell Kelly's story it succeeds. but Jagger, sadly, is Mick Jagger, not Edward Kelly. Unartistic as a film, it nevertheless tells a great story quite well, and i must confess, whenit first came out (1970) it started me on a Kelly quest that has lasted ever since. So BRAVO for Tony Richardson's attmept....and I like Mick and found SOME of his work here "ok"...but if you watch a movie on Kelly and can only see Mick Jagger, then the casting director should be fired!!

I first saw this movie as a small child. Now, 3 decades later, I have been unable to forget it.

An Australian legend, similar to Brittain's Robin Hood, or America's Jessie James, "Ned Kelly" is a shockingly graphic depiction of freedom and justice.

Waylon Jennings and the soundtrack music is unforgettable. While having an aversion to mick jagger, I believe he contributed much to the feel of this film, and this may be his finest performance.

Shel Silverstein wrote all lyrics and music to this soundtrack: the first song, Ned Kelly, is my favorite -- catchy tune and lyrics. Almost all are catchy.
Very folky stuff. If you like old Bob Dylan, you'll love this.

I'm an Australian and have been researching Ned Kelly for 25 years. I watched this film at the movies when it came out. It was terrible then, and is even more terrible to watch now. If you are interested in the Kelly Gang, there are some very good books: recommended "A Short Life" by Ian Jones. See if Amazon has it! It is a very accurate account of the life of Edward Kelly, which is more than I can say for this movie.
