MEDICINE BALL CARAVAN - MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE BS 2565 (-71) US

Soundtrack to a movie picturing 154 persons, including artists and crew, making a caravan "live trip" all over US, playing big cities as well as smaller locations. Haven't seen the film, but judging from the music on this album it must be good. Top notch performances with great audio by very diverse settings. Three cuts goes right to my heart. Two medleys - one from a very playful BB King and a rather violent one from Stoneground, both with great guitars. Also Alice Cooper doing "Black Juju" - an appealing live version before his big breakthrough. I like the Delanie & Bonnie "Free The People" version and the Doug Kershaw medly as well, but the three aforementioned are the ones I keep returning to. There must have been about a thousand pop/rock soundtracks from the fifties and on in US alone, many relying only on one good track or just a famous film score. This is one of the good guys - more like a live compilation than a soundtrack, played by some of the best. Contemporary vinyl issues in Canada, France and Germany. Don't know of any CD reissue. First US had label as shown here, glossy cover and "loss leader" inner. (SÄM*) (LYBÖ*) (ZÖNT*)
