Product Description


Tellingly, director Richard Linklatter's Dazed and Confused was released 20 years after American Grafitti and offers a similar story of troubled young personalities lurking beneath an oversaturated pop culture veneer. Like Lucas before him, Linklatter clearly relishes that gloss and wields it like an ironic chainsaw. His soundtrack is a raucous, authentic collection of mid-70's radio fare, be it sharp-edged pop (Sweet, the vastly underrated Rick Derringer), nascent metal (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple) and out-and-out hard cheese (Foghat, Black Oak Arkansas). Dazed and Confused is the real sound of 70's teenage America. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars I Wonder if this Comes on Eight-Track? Oct. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
I'll be the first to admit I'm a little biased in reviewing the "Dazed and Confused" soundtrack, because "D&C" is one of my all-time favorite movies.But I have to say, this CD is suberb as both a soundtrack recording and as a compilation of 1970's hardrock/pop.Filmmaker, Richard Linklater (who helped produce the album) did an excellent job of picking songs that really conveyed the joyful spirit of both his nostalgic film and the mid 70s in general.The songs perfectly match the mood of the movie, which explores what it was like to be a teenager in the 1970s, when the most important things in your life were hanging out with your friends, going on a date with a 'hot'looking girl and making sure you were early in line to get good seats for the Aerosmith concert.Great songs include Rick Derringer's "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo", Alice Cooper's "School's Out and Foghat's killer "Slow Ride". My personal favorite is Lynryrd Skynyrd's anthemic ballad, "Tuesday's Gone" (which Linklater puts to excellent use in a scene showing a huge outdoor party slowly winding down).As a compilation of '70s hard rock/pop, this CD totally works.There really arn't any songs that are out of place or that you could call 'filler'.This was a perfect mix of tunes for any '70s teenager to blare over the stereo of his GTO while heading out to the local beer blast.Over twenty-five years later this music is still just as fresh and fantastic.I would highly recommend the CD "D&C" and it's co-soundtrack "Even More Dazed and Confused", which offers more of the same great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars SOLID!!!! July 29 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is quite possibly one of the best "albums" I have ever heard. I grew up in the 70's and remember when all these songs came out for the first time. They were a rush then, and they are now. Every time period has had their "what were they thinking..." moments, and say what you will about the 70's, but there were some really good things about that time. The music, fantastic "album" covers, custom cars/vans, and yes, I too believe, the girls were never more pretty. Cruising was everything.(What gas crisis?) This "album" and it companion "album" are must haves. There has never been a more creative time in music than this. We live in such a hostile and hateful world now that it makes 'back then' that much more special. The sky was the limit, and even then, you could go beyond that. I truely miss all the good things associated with the 70's. If you also 'lived it' then, buy this "album'(and companion) now. Dust off that lava lamp, get out that old Farrah poster, polish and gas up the car and enjoy the music of better days. It's on The Medicine Label. How perfect. The perfect tonic for what ails you. An excellent reminder of real music and a great 'escape.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock N' Roll Hoochie Koo, Indeed May 10 2000
Format:Audio CD
It really doesn't get much better than this as far as various artist compilations or soundtracks go. There's no real use explaining what the songs sound like because, chances are, if you're checking this album out, you've heard at least most of the songs on here. Most are staples of classic-rock radio (esp. "Tush", "Slow Ride", "Rock and Roll All Night", "Paranoid"). Thanks to this movie, an excellent movie if you haven't seen it, whenever I hear "School's Out" or "Hurricane" (an omission from this soundtrack, most likely legal reasons), I visualize the scene from the movie when they came on. While there are a couple tracks on here that I would have left off (not my call, so I'm not complaining), what's here I can't argue with. Most of the tracks on here are, plain and simple, great and good timey classic rock n' roll. The stuff that's not good-timey (i.e.: "Paranoid", "Stranglehold", "Love Hurts") is still great rock, and, interestingly enough, my second-favorite songs by each of those groups (the #1's are "War Pigs" (Sabbath), "Great White Buffalo" (Nugent), and "Hair Of The Dog" (Nazareth)). Most important about this album is the fact that it's a true soundtrack to the late 70's, all of the songs on here are, more or less, time-appropriate for the movie (the songs that aren't are in the movie anyway, so it all works out). Though I wasn't in high school in 1976, I listened to this stuff (amongst other kinds of music) in high school and still do now, it's timeless. Overall, this soundtrack is my favorite soundtrack out there, and "More Songs from Dazed & Confused" is an essential purchase if you're going to buy this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars 14 tracks of commercial free so-so classic rock. July 1 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
I don't think this is that bad, it's just the kind of classic rock that I usually don't want to hear, even when I want classic rock. Maybe when the movie came out I thought this was a perfect 70's sampler on one disc, but since then I've come to realize that there's a thousand other groups that are better, and could have been on this soundtrack. Even the primo bands on this are represented by their absolute biggest hits, which means you've heard them WAY too many times. Plus seeing as the movie is "Dazed and Confused", you would think they would have more "stoner" rock included. What I do like on here is "Love Hurts", "Stranglehold", and "Low Rider". Unless you've just got to have the songs from the film, I would suggest something like "Pure 70's" or a similar compilation. Or I could go a step further and just tell you to get some "Stones", "Doors", and "Neil Young".
