Rock soundtrack to the interesting early 70s counter-culture movie Zachariah ("The First Electric Western") from Phil Austin, Peter Bergman, Phil Proctor and David Ossman - otherwise known as The Firesign Theatre.

A true film of its time, Zachariah followed in the wake of such movies as Easy Rider, Zabriskie Point and The Strawberry Statement and played with the theme of the rejection of mindless violence whilst actually using rock bands in some of the starring roles.

Country Joe and the Fish played the outlaw gang "The Crackers", The James Gang played members of Job Cain's gang and The New York Rock 'n' Roll Ensemble appear as members of woman outlaw Belle Star's gang.

Along with the rock tunes - there's also some lovely incidental music from Jimmie Haskell.

This is a really solid album that contains some great music. Also worthwhile for the fact that tracks featured here don't appear anywhere else!
