Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The original Yippie, Abbie Hoffman left little room for compromise. His combative activism eventually forced him underground and guaranteed him a place in the lexicon of alternative Sixties culture. The soundtrack features both original 1960s protest music from Phil Ochs, Edwin Starr, and Country Joe and the Fish and remakes of classic songs from an impressive list of modern musicians. The reinterpretations are strong. Steve Earle and Sheryl Crow belt out the Chambers Brothers' "Time Has Come Today" with a punk edge. Bonnie Raitt has never sounded more relaxed, underlining the somber sentiments of Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" with a gentle, tremolo-ed guitar. Dylan's farewell to protest, "My Back Pages," is given a majestic reading by Joan Osborne and Jackson Browne, with a funereal organ haunting the track. Most appropriate is Ani DiFranco covering Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land" with her usual dose of idiosyncrasy. --Rob O'Connor

4.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack for Multiple Generations August 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD works for more than those of us who were teenagers when this music was first released. The Steve Earle/Sheryl Crow collaboration (Time Has Come Today) is a more contemplative treatment of this song. Bonnie Raitt shines (It's All Over Now, Baby Blue) with a bluesy, heartfelt rendering of this Dylan classic. Phil Ochs, Edwin Starr, and Country Joe & The Fish are here for authenticity, to balance the "newness" of Ani DiFranco, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Joan Osborne. I applaud the artist selection as more daring than would have been expected.
See the soundtrack for "1969" for a collection of original songs and associated artists from this era.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Covers January 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a soundtrack which updates some classic songs and brings back a few golden oldies. For me, the greatest hit is the absolute blow your socks off version of "Power to the People" which Eric Burdon and Billy Preston nail. Besides being an unlikely pairing, the two give what was a second-tier John Lennon song red carpet treatment that rivals the master musician's with Burdon's empassioned vocals and Preston's pounding keyboards! Equally as magical is Bonnie Raitt's cool bluesy reading of Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue." "The highway is for gamblers ... take what you have gathered from coincidence," she croons magically. I have this tune recorded by Joan Baez, the Byrds, Judy Collins, Richie Havens, Barry McGuire, the Animals and of course, the songwriter. Raitt shines! The other Dylan pairing with Jackson Browne and Joan Osborne's version of "My Back Pages" is weighted only by Steve Earle's somber organ throughout the piece. Mary Chapin Carpenter's wacky version of Donovan's "Mellow Yellow" is also making me hit for the repeat button with her little warble, "I'm just mad about 14; she's just mad about me." Steve Earle and Sheryl Crow do a great job of "Time Has Come Today"; and it's interesting to hear the female vocal on the song. The Phil Ochs track and Country Joe's "Fixing" track are thematically essential for the film and sound great. All in all, this is a soundtrack that has great focus and unity. U snooze U lose! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those rare soundtracks... September 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those rare soundtracks that actually has vision, direction and cohesiveness. It consists mostly of updated versions of classic songs. Steve Earle & Sheryl Crow team up for the Chambers Brothers classic "Time". Other interesting team-ups are Joan Osborne & Jackson Browne covering Bob Dylan's "My Back Pages" and Eric Clapton, Billy Preston & Ringo Starr doing John Lennon's "Power to the People". Bonnie Raitt does a beautiful cover of Dylan's "It's All Over Now Baby Blue". Ani DiFranco covers two songs, Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" and Phil Och's "When I'm Gone". Timothy B. Schmidt rocks with CS&N's "Carry On". And last but not least, Mary Chapin Carpenter does a very bluesy and sexy version of Donovan's "Mellow Yellow" that would have been a great single at AAA formats. There are also a few originals - Phil Och's: I Ain't Marching Anymore, Country Joe and the Fish: Superbird & Fell Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag, and Edwin Starr: War.

4.0 out of 5 stars When the 1960's meet 2000! July 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When a film like this comes out I await the track listing for the soundtrack. I wait to see all the regular songs with all the excitment of an old spoiled child. You see, I'm sick of the typical 60's soundtracks but I love the songs. I think I have "Get Together" 5000 times, at least. This disc, however, offers a very cool blend of old songs reworked by adult contemporary stand by's such as Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crowe, & Mary Chapin Carpenter. Then at the same time works artists like Steve Earl & Ani DiFranco in, which really creats stand out versions of "Time Has Come Today" & "It's All Over Now Baby Blue". "When I'm Gone", Ani's stand out track, pulls apart what Phil Ochs ever could have thought possible for the song rewqorking it to a solid piece of beauty. It's superb. It's the rich and Robin Hood. It's the Executive & Starving Student. My only complaint is "WAR". I think I have that one 3,000 times already but to have these new re-workings is just ever so impressive. Whoever did this thank you. Please do it again soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars What were they thinking? August 3, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Don't get me wrong. I saw this CD and the songs included and bought iton the spot. But I'm not sure I understand why these songs and why these performers. I love Steve Earle and Sheryl Crow, but they don't have the vocal power to match the Chambers Brothers original version of "Time." An odd choice to rework this song. Nevertheless, a worthy effort and very listenable. Bonnie Raitt's version of "Baby Blue" is terrific. Now explain this: For "I Ain't marching Anymore" they go back to the original Phil Ochs version, but Ochs' "When I'm Gone" is entrusted to Ani DiFranco. Now I've got to part company with a previous reviewer here. As performed by Phil Ochs, "When I'M Gone" is one of the prettiest folk melodies I can recall. But Ani DiFranco destroys the melody to plumb some other emotional dimension of the song. I'm sorry, I think it's a disaster. I wish they had given us Ochs' original version of this tune. Donovan's "Mellow Yellow" has always struck me as a bit of a musical oddity and Mary Chapin Carpenter's version doesn't change my view. Country Joe offers two of his original tunes and Edwin Starr does "War." Why do we go back to the originals for these songs and then have revised versions of others. Especially odd is Timothy B. Schmitt's version of "Carry On." Schmitt -- one with Poco and the Eagles -- is practically a legacy member of CSN&Y. His version of this tune is so close to the original that it's hard to tell them apart. So why not use the original, it certainly hasn't been reinterpreted for some greater purpose. Like I say, I don't get what the purpose was here. If they wanted to capture the 60s, they could have just as easily used the original versions.
