About this album

Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid is a soundtrack album released by Bob Dylan in 1973 for the Sam Peckinpah film of the same name. Dylan himself appeared in the film as the character “Alias”. Consisting of primarily instrumental music and inspired by the movie itself, the soundtrack birthed one of Dylan’s most beloved songs—and biggest hits—”Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”, which became a trans-Atlantic Top 20 hit.

A gold record, Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid reached #16 US and #29 UK.

    Una pellicola capolavoro( come quasi tutti i i film di Pekinpah) e una colonna sonora altrettanto !

    Sam Pekinpah, Kris Kristofferson, James Coburn und Robert Zimmermann - das war natürlich großes Kino!

    Ottima colonna sonora per un film che merita di essere visto. Bob Dylan è presente nel film anche come attore, compare nel ruolo di Alias.

    summer 2007... sitting out on the deck by the pool, watching the sun come up after being awake all night, puttin down the smokes like nothing and listening to this album. a few moments of solace in the shit... times sucked but I can't help but get nostalgic and want to go back... reminiscing and trying to piece my blown mind back together after realizing how quickly the time passed from then to now

    Sam Peckinpah classic one-liner on the set after hearing Dylan's ideas for the soundtrack: Give the Man a Chair!
