Wyatt: You know Billy, we blew it.

Here’s the wonderful OST for the ground-breaking film Easy Rider …. a movie radical in its production, direction and primarily its themes, and one which changed the movie business.

This is a seminal soundtrack from the perspective of using pre-existing songs and matching these to the individual scenes! It was a little unusual too in the high level of chart success it attained, peaking at #6 on the Billboard album charts in September 69.

The OST contains a number of very decent individual songs that meshed magnificently with the images in the movie and with the athmosphere and themes it was trying to portray.

An interesting Dylan cover too by Roger McGuinn and half a Dylan original!!
Both The Band and Crosby, Stills, & Nash (CSN) were considered for the soundtrack. However, during editing, Dennis Hopper decided to use various music from his own record collection. When CSN viewed a rough cut of the film, they assured Hopper that they could not do any better than he already had!

Bob Dylan was asked to contribute music, but was reluctant to use his own recording of “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)”, so a version performed by Byrds frontman Roger McGuinn was used instead. Also, instead of writing an entirely new song for the film, Dylan simply wrote out the first verse of “Ballad of Easy Rider” and apparently told the filmmakers, “Give this to McGuinn, he’ll know what to do with it.” McGuinn completed the song and performed it in the film.

The songs on the soundtrack album are sequenced in the same order as they appear in the film, with the following differences:

  • “The Weight,” as originally recorded by The Band for their 1968 debut album Music From Big Pink, was used in the film but could not be licensed for the soundtrack. To deal with this, ABC-Dunhill commissioned Smith, who recorded for the label at the time, to record a cover version of the song for the soundtrack album.
  • Two songs used in the film, Little Eva’s “Let’s Turkey Trot” and The Electric Flag’s “Flash, Bang, Pow,” were omitted from the soundtrack album.
There was a remastered version of this with some different tracks released a few years back. If anyone’s got that, please do let us know! Thanks friends!

Bob Dylan – Pecos Blues

Bob Dylan – Pecos Blues Type: CDR (1974)

From Bobsboots;

Source: Pat Garrett soundtrack sessions
Mexico City, Mexico January 20, 1973
Burbank, CA February 1973
Manufacturer / Catalog No. Spank / SP 107
Released: 1991
: 9½ stars

Bob’s Boots ref # BB-p05

Mama, put my guns in the ground
I can’t shoot them anymore.
That long black cloud is comin’ down
I feel like I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door.

We’ve written of our love for the much neglected Dylan Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid OST. An insanely under-rated Dylan album and a wonderful score. Check it out here!

The obvious highlight on the Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid OST is one of Dylan’s best known songs, the simple yet immensely powerful Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door, a timeless track that even the awful Axl Rose couldn’t fuck up!

However, as well as this masterpiece, the LP has some lovely and delicate instrumentals. Pared down pieces, in a style well ahead of its time.

Post-modern bands in the nineties were being gushed over by so-called critics for producing instrumental music of similar ilk!

//” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Now, on this wonderful boot, we get 24 outtakes from the sessions for the soundtrack of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid!

The sound from these February 1973 sessions is excellent, taken from the master or a source that was close to the master itself.

You get multiple versions of vocal and instrumental numbers from the soundtrack, including three takes of the most famous track to emerge from the project “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.”

Dylan sounds earthier here than he did on most of his 1970s recordings, and there’s an agreeable backyard-hootenanny informality to the proceedings.

About half the tracks includes contributions from notable guests Roger McGuinn and Jim Keltner.

This is a must have disc for all fans of studio outtakes, and/or the Pat Garrett material. As with the released version, there is a lot of instrumentals. There’s also a lot of Bob talking and interacting with the engineer.

The songs are direct from the studio mixing consoles, in incredible quality. The cover is Rex Features’ classic ‘Alias’ photo. The photo on the back is the ferrotype that is believed to be of Henry McCarty who would change his name to Bill Bonney aka ‘Billy The Kid’. The CD title is the result of a grammatical error. The true title of the song does not include an apostrophe. Also released as ‘Lucky Luke’.

” Incredible glimpse of Dylan in the studio. Recorded Jan & Feb, 1973. It is a stripped down bare bones & all look of some great music. The recording is excellent in quality of performance & sound. The between takes chat is quite revealing. Recommended to everyone!!!”

Bob Dylan – My Back Pages (two great versions!)

Ah, but I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now.

A sublime classic from his Bobness.

Two fine versions here;

  • Bob performs the classic live in Toronto in 1998.
  • “My Back Pages” Live in 1992 at the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert where a true “All-Star” line-up of performers (including Neil Young,Tom Petty,George Harrison,Eric Clapton,Roger McGuinn) knock out this Dylan classic.

Big thanks to juanchysGD and hue37!

Crimson flames tied through my ears

Rollin’ high and mighty traps

Pounced with fire on flaming roads

Using ideas as my maps

“We’ll meet on edges, soon,” said I

Proud ‘neath heated brow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth

“Rip down all hate,” I screamed

Lies that life is black and white

Spoke from my skull. I dreamed

Romantic facts of musketeers

Foundationed deep, somehow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

Girls’ faces formed the forward path

From phony jealousy

To memorizing politics

Of ancient history

Flung down by corpse evangelists

Unthought of, though, somehow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

A self-ordained professor’s tongue

Too serious to fool

Spouted out that liberty

Is just equality in school

“Equality,” I spoke the word

As if a wedding vow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

In a soldier’s stance, I aimed my hand

At the mongrel dogs who teach

Fearing not that I’d become my enemy

In the instant that I preach

My pathway led by confusion boats

Mutiny from stern to bow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats

Too noble to neglect

Deceived me into thinking

I had something to protect

Good and bad, I define these terms

Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I’m younger than that now.

“My Back Pages” Live in Toronto in 1998;

“My Back Pages” Live at the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert;

This clip comes from the Fall of 1992.

his is an “All-Star” line-up of performers (including Neil Young,Tom Petty,George Harrison,Eric Clapton,Roger McGuinn) knock out the Dylan classic “My Back Pages”.
