Having come to this album through the film, I never cease to be amazed at how Bob Dylan got this so right. Usually, soundtracks are bitty and without the film action to guide them, seem spare. This is not the case of PAT GARRETT..., which is so convincing an album in its own right. I guess the style fitted in well with his own country blues leanings of BLONDE ON BLONDE and the later BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, (which must have been his reward from the Byrds and their having used so many of his songs in the past).
Dylan threads his themes very well, and there is a touch of repetition that might have been borrowed from classical sources (to the great benefit of the album). While most songs are country folk, I like "Turkey Chase" which is heading into Bluegrass, with I guess Roger McGuinn on banjo. "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" is also well-positioned on the album, and pops up almost as a surprise due to the size of its popularity.
I have only one slight, slight quibble (oh, here it comes...); the two versions of "Billy" at the end do have the feeling that Dylan pre-empted the modern practice of bonus tracks without ever having gone through the re-issue phase. These two versions do seem a little bit tagged on at the end, but memory fails me, and I cannot say for sure if they are used in the film or not (last seen in 1995 by myself). That said, it is interesting to see Dylan playing with the lyrics, his voice, and choice of instrumental styles - all three versions of "Billy" are both different and sit well enough to make it difficult to say which is best (which is probably why all were included). Also Dylan's playful humour comes out more in these versions.
To be honest, it may be sacrilegious to say, but I would have to say that this is my favourite Dylan album, which is almost embarrassing to admit BECAUSE it is a soundtrack.

I am a huge Dylan fan, but not a completely uncritical one. And despite a 5 star review this wouldn't come way up in my list of recommendations of his work,for the simple fact that it is not a 'Bob Dylan album' per se. Its one to get when you have heard his classics (if you want my opinion on those, send me message). Still, I understand its relative obscurity; it is compiled mainly around several themes of the same song, and the film itself didn't exactly do great business, although as a bonus it did have Dylan himself in a minor role. But it is nevertheless a beautiful album. The second track, for instance, could go on for twenty minutes longer and I would still love it. It has quality musicians all over it, Roger Mcguinn is there for instance, as is the ace drummer Jim Keltner, who has since admitted it was the one and only time he has cried whilst playing. It is quite stunning music, and if you appreciate the western genre, more so. It is also very interesting to hear Knocking On Heaven's Door in its original humble origins; it was never meant to be a generationally inspiring anthem, and I always do prefer to hear it here amongst similar sounding music.
So, as I have said, get it after the true classics have been listened to. This is a soundtrack album, but it is a gorgeous one at that.

When Rudy Wurlitzer, the writer of the screenplay for the Sam Peckinpah movie 'Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid', approached his friend Bob Dylan, he originally intended for him to write the soundtrack. He wrote 'Billy', a fine example of Dylans ability to master the ballad. Dylan had been lying low since his motorcycle accident, so this was his first work for some time, and there is a beautifully easy nature to the music. It is light and soothing with many a raw journey into a mexican dusty night on a tequilla stained veranda. The listener is lulled into the scene as the story is told until we are brought back to home with the masterpiece of Dylans simple yet masterful 'Knocking on Heavans Door'. I originally bought this album a couple of years ago on Vinyl for a fiver, at that time for this track alone, which I never saw on another album. 'Heavans door' is short, with only two verses, and my only fault with this album is that Dylan did not provide more verses. The listener is left eager for more.
I highly reccomend this album to anybody who enjoys a cosy candlelit evening by a fire, stare into the flames and imagine your there.

This 1973 release, the twelfth studio album from Bob Dylan, is somewhat of a mixed bag. As a soundtrack it was perfectly suited to the film it was written for, Sam Peckinpah's film of the same name as the album. The music suits the action, and the anthemic `Knocking on Heaven's Door' has just the right amount of doom laden fatalism to really give the end of the film a knockout punch. But listened to in isolation from the film it just doesn't work for me. `Knocking on Heaven's Door' is a classic song, and `Billy' has a nice mournful air and a particularly moving performance from Dylan. The rest of the album is, however, filler and does not work in isolation from the film.

Three stars only. It's not bad, and has some real high points, but it is not as consistently interesting or breathtaking as other albums in Dylan's canon.

Unfortunately a lot of (Country/Cowboy) music lovers may miss out on this one because Bob Dylan's name is on the cover, and they just can't begin to imagine how wonderful he sounds when he's in a laid back country mode.

Some Bob Dylan lovers may pass it by because there are only a few Dylan songs on this soundtrack recording.

I held back from purchasing this gem on CD, guessing sooner or later Columbia / Sony would eventually issue a remaster - but no need to worry on that score as this version of the CD sounds as brilliant as I remember the original LP/vinyl issue.

Musically it's loaded with Cowboy Movie atmosphere, a little bit of Country rock, a little bit of very tasty acoustic guitar playing, a few appropriate songs from Bob Dylan about Billy The Kid & Pat Garrett, including the astonishing "Knockin' On Heaven's Door".

Sounding as fresh now as it did back in the early 70s, this entire recording is short and sweet, just like Bob's "Nashville Skyline".

Listening pleasure guaranteed!

Musicians include Booker T., Roger McGuinn, Bruce Langhorn, Russ Kunkel, Byron Berline, Jim Keltner & Carl Fortina.

Always on sale at Amazon, and at a very nice price, there really is no excuse for not getting hold of a copy of this.

"Pat Garrett got your number....."

Classic.
