Soundtrack - Dead Man 2LP
Dead Man is the 1996 film from acclaimed director Jim Jarmusch [Stranger Than Paradise, Down By Law, Life On Earth]. The film stars Johnny Depp and features performances by the likes of Crispin Glover, Iggy Pop and Robert Mitchum.
Accompanying the film is this album featuring instrumental music composed by Neil Young and performed entirely solo, mostly on electric guitar. The only vocal contribution is by Johnny Depp, whose reading of segments of William Blake’s poetry is integral into Neil Young’s music.
Says Jim Jarmusch on Neil’s efforts: “What he brought to the film lifts it to another level, intertwining the soul of the story with Neil’s musically emotional reaction to it-the guy reached down into some deep place inside him to create such strong music for our film.”
