Easy Rider is more than an iconic soundtrack; it’s an exquisitely programmed trip through the many styles of rock music embraced by hippies and freaks in the ’60s. You’ll discover screw-the-man biker rock (Steppenwolf), bluesy psychedelia (The Jimi Hendrix Experience), West Coast folk rock (The Byrds), and stoned free association (The Holy Modal Rounders). Perhaps the oddest piece is "Kyrie Ellison Mardi Gras": Only the Age of Aquarius could produce a marriage of fuzzy garage rock and ancient Christian prayer by a band called The Electric Prunes.
This collection of songs is a cut above the rest. Its sound embodies the 60’s and exemplifies what it means to be a great soundtrack. It’s a regular on my playlist.
Historical Soundtrack from the 60's
There is no other sountrack that can come close to feeling what it was like in the 60's. The artists in this sound track produced timeless music that is still played frequently today. If you can watch the movie and it will take you to a new level of understanding of these songs and a step back in time.
Great Soundtrack To A Greater Film
Easy Rider remains my favorite film of the 20th century. It's the ultimate countercultural cinematic feature. The Soundtrack, tastefully selected, contains a collection of some of my favorite songs from the late 60's. I highly recommend this album to anyone looking for great 60's rock.
