Tellingly, director Richard Linklatter's Dazed and Confused was released 20 years after American Grafitti and offers a similar story of troubled young personalities lurking beneath an oversaturated pop culture veneer. Like Lucas before him, Linklatter clearly relishes that gloss and wields it like an ironic chainsaw. His soundtrack is a raucous, authentic collection of mid-70's radio fare, be it sharp-edged pop (Sweet, the vastly underrated Rick Derringer), nascent metal (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple) and out-and-out hard cheese (Foghat, Black Oak Arkansas). Dazed and Confused is the real sound of 70's teenage America. --Jerry McCulley

I love this CD. I play every one of the tunes and have them on my IPOD. I wish all the compilation discs were as good as this one.
Soundtrack of my youth

"I don't own this CD. I don't have to own it to review it, because this music is the soundtrack of my high school years. I lived this music. I listened to it while cruising the local shopping center indulging in - er - various activities. Half of the bands on this CD I had the privilege of seeing perform live in the 70s. THIS is what FM radio sounded like back then. Every single song on this CD was well known to me and my friends. Yes, even Black Oak Arkansas (hot and nasty!), Nazareth (get Hair of the Dog CD for more), and the Runaways (hot babes!). Oh, and I love the movie too. Party on, dudes!"

"The movie was great so how could the soundtrack be anything less. The characters dressed and acted just like my friends and I did during that time period and certainly listened to the same music. Though I was an adult rather than a student the era was the same. I am so pleased with the soundtrack it never leaves my CD wallet. Anyone who loves the rock of the late 70s and very early 80s will be glad they bought this album. The best artists, terrific songs, a good time will be had by all."
