Soundtrack Album: Easy Rider Deluxe Edition

The Band's original version of "The Weight" was used in the score for the classic film Easy Rider, but for contractual reasons the 1969 soundtrack album replaced The Band with a cover version by the group Smith

The 2004 "Deluxe" reissue contains a CD with the same 10 tracks as the original LP, and then adds a second disc with an assortment of classic rock from the psychedelic era, among them the original "The Weight" and the Byrds' cover of "You Ain't Going Nowhere" from the Basement Tapes. None of the 19 tracks on disc 2, except "The Weight," were used in Easy Rider.
