Various - Dennis Hopper's 'The Last Movie'
After the incredible success of the film Easy Rider, Dennis Hopper was given complete freedom to direct and star in the bizarre, surrealist The Last Movie, released in 1971. Filmed in a drug fuelled haze in Peru with Hopper, Peter Fonda, Kris Kristofferson, Dean Stockwell, Michelle Phillips, Russ Tamblyn, and Samuel Fuller – there has never been a soundtrack to this film until now!
Featuring the first ever performances of Kristofferson’s 'Me and Bobby McGee' plus sublime country-folk songs from John Buck Wilkin, Peruvian folk & dance music – all recorded live on set in Peru (nothing was overdubbed) – plus, provocative movie dialogue from Dennis Hopper, Sam Fuller and others, coupled with the ambient sounds of the mountains and villages of South America.
The soundtrack album has been produced by Pat Thomas and Hopper Estate archivist Jessica Hundley, and is the first time these recordings - taken from the original reels - have been released in any format.
Pressed on yellow vinyl; gatefold sleeve includes rare vintage photos and detailed liner notes; limited to 500 copies in the UK (1000 copies worldwide)
