The film Almost Famous is set in 1973, a time when rock and roll was about to evolve into a lumbering, arena-conquering dinosaur. Director Cameron Crowe--who was himself a teenage rock journalist for Rolling Stone magazine--has applied his own first-hand knowledge of the 1970s rock scene and co-produced a soundtrack that neatly encapsulates an era in rock and roll history. Contributions from Simon and Garfunkel ("America") and the Beach Boys ("Feel Flows") nod to a gentler musical scene on its way out, while tracks by Lynyrd Skynyrd ("Simple Man"), the Allman Brothers Band ("One Way Out") and Led Zeppelin ("That's The Way") indicate the shape of rock to come. Meanwhile, David Bowie's version of "I'm Waiting for the Man" hints at the glam scene lurking just around the corner, and Clarence Thomas's "Slip Away" provides an example of perfect 1970s soul. Even Almost Famous's fictitious house band, Stillwater, contribute a track: the nicely retro, guitar-rocking "Fever Dog". --Robert Burrow

I loved this movie when I first watched it so I went out and bought it. My old father commented: 'why arent the guys in the movie wearing flares? Everyone did.' Anyway, i love Lynyrd Skynrd, Simple Man, I always have it blasting it out of my stereo. The guitar playing is so good. Secondly, like everyone else, I love Elton John's Tiny Dancer, it is great. I say, we ought to welcome rocknroll back. This cd conjures up a great image of how I imagine the 70's were like.

I am a big fan of the film "Almost Famous", and find no difficulty in watching it over and over again, not least because of the music in it. This soundtrack captures most of the great songs that are heard in the film (Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man", Elton John's "Tiny Dancer", Cat Stevens' "The Wind" and "America" by Simon and Garfunkel to name but a few), but I was disappointed at the omission of "Tangerine" and "Misty Mountain Hop" by Led Zeppelin, and "Voodoo Chile" by Jimi Hendrix. These songs seem to have been dispensed with and as a result we have to listen to the eternally annoying Rod Stewart and David Bowie. More Stillwater songs wouldn't have gone amiss either, namely "Love Thing" (The one that the band are playing on stage in the film when the guitarist gets electrocuted) and "Hour of Need" (really cool guitar solo), although "Fever Dog" is a welcome inclusion on the soundtrack.
On the whole this is a good CD, but if you're expecting to hear on it every song that you hear in the film you may be disappointed!

Great soundtrack cd to an excellent film. I thoroughly recommend it.
To answer the question. Pete Droge is the name of the singer/guitarist, Elaine Summers is the woman's name. Droge formed a group with U.S. singer-songwriters and guitarists Shawn Mullins and Matthew Sweet in 2003 under the name The Thorns and they released an album called -- The Thorns.
Director Cameron Crowe said the 'Small-Time Blues' performance was a tribute to Gram Parsons who died later in the year that the film is set, 1973. I guess Ms. Summers is meant to be Emmylou Harris.

I absolutely love the movie Almost Famous and it is one of my favourite movies of all time. I particularly enjoyed the music in the movie and i couldn't wait to buy the soundtrack. Although the album is fantastic i was somewhat disappointed by the number of songs not listed on the album, especially Mona Lisa's and Madhatters by Elton John, it is a fantastic song yet it is not featured on the album; i was very disapppointed.

An awesome album! However, its about time a collectors edition was released containing the missing tracks. None more so than 'Small Time Blues,' which features in the DVD bonus material. Who is the artist of that song anyway? I AM A GOLDEN GOD!!!!!!!

Not like me to buy a cd the moment it comes out! But I enjoyed the film so much I couldn't resist. Despite the lack of songs I recognised, I wasn't disappointed. The mix of genres, from soul and blues (Clarence Carter, Allman Brothers Band) to gentle prog (Yes) make for a thouroughly entertaining listen. My particular favourites are "America" by Simon & Garfunkel, "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd and the epic closer, "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, which does the most to encapsulate the mood of the film. The album does have its dips: Todd Rundgren is stomach-churning, Rod Stewart is irritating, and the less said about Elton John the better, but on the whole, especially if you have a cd player that enables you to program which tracks to skip, it's a great listen. Certainly my most-played album of the last university term. Oh yeah, and the sleeve has Kate Hudson looking luvverly once or twice as well.

The film may have passed me by, but the soundtrack has not.
I was looking for America by Simon And Garfunkel and noticed it on this compilation.
As far as I/m concerned It's up there with Bridge Over Troubled Water as their best ever recording and then Elton John's Tiny Dancer is another wonderful song.
With The Who, Yes, The Beach Boys, The Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynrd, Led Zeppelin, Cat Stevens and Thunderclap Newman all providing less well known stuff, this is a very varied and interesting CD.

The movie and the soundtrack go hand in hand completely. The movie perfectly captures the 'Magic' of those times, and the music lends greatly to that. One of my Favourite Films and the way the music is employed is perfect...for example: The scene on the bus when they all sing 'Tiny Dancer' is "Magic". Highly Recommended (Both Film and Music Soundtrack).
