    I agree with reviewer Don Riley that the blues soundtrack is the best thing about this movie, a typical piece of late 60s/early 70s countercultural BS, where the heroes are the dropouts and the nay sayers and the bad guys are, well, anyone who wears a suit and has a nine to five job. Which of course makes this film the very thing its characters hate; conforming. As Andy Warhol once said, "Nothing is more bourgeois than to say you're not bourgeois." I'm starting to sound like Jeff Boston now so I better shut up. Give this film a D.

    Just to focus on the soundtrack because it is solely a Blues Rock soundtrack. Which probably places this film in a minority, of only a handful. All songs written solely for this film. This was an original soundtrack by members of three bands THE PAUL BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND, THE ELECTRIC FLAG and Maria Muldaur formerly of Jim Kweskin Jug Band. Some of the finest white blues musicians of the era Paul Butterfield, Nick Gravenites and Mike Bloomfield are very seriously involved. Unfortunately the music is some of the worst ever recorded by any of these fine players. That said, it is still a "loner" Cult quality flick, that has its moments. The Soundtrack is "not bad" its ok, but one is much better suited in listening to the any of the recordings of the bands involved.

    Interesting but there's nothing outstanding about the movie. The cast is good, especially the supporting players. The score can be a bit much at times.
