"I happened to catch the movie the other day on comedy central and it sure brought back memories(they didn't all go up in smoke!}.The comedy is a little dated by now but still pretty funny. I confess I bought this cd for one of the tunes on it that is unavailable any place else that I know of. Throughout the movie whenever the van is seen rolling down the road a very infectious piece of music drives along with it. I later came to find out the name of that tune was called "lost due to imcompetence"(theme for a big green van). I live for a good guitar dominated instrumental piece and this one is a beauty. Apparently at the time some of the best session musicians in the business formed a band called "Yesca" just for the purpose of recording some of the music for this movie. You'd be hard pressed to find a better driving tune than this one. There are some other interesting pieces on the cd also and I'm sure if you're a fan you won't be disappointed."

"Got to be one of the best soundtracks ever, 1st gear,2nd gear had me sore with cheech marin's infectious laughter,and tracks like the instrumental strawberrys and lost due to incompetence are essensial listening for those of us that enjoy the odd nostaliga trip back in to the 70s, cheech and chong themselves rock out on tracks framed, searchin and rock fight.along with the soundtrack for easy rider, up in smoke is indispensable."

"very good cd and book cuz yesca rocks. and so do the search boys, and all the other rock and reggae bands in the soundtrack. especially the song "Due to Incompetence" by yesca is a really good song. its really cool, smooth music to listen to, and it just all out rocks."
