    I love this movie, and would like to own it. Is it of a good quality?

    Good DVD. I bought it a few weeks ago. If I remember correctly, it's only in 2 channel Dolby, but the transfer is a good one.

    It's excellent--the disc, the transfer, the film. It looks better on DVD than it did in the commercial cinemas. A must-have disc.

    Stephen, I think that what stands out right away about the soundtrack is how well the music sounds. When "Born to be wild" kicked in it gave me goosebumps. It's a must buy if you're an "EasyRider" fan. [​IMG]

    I thought they had remixed Easy Rider to 5.1 with new music mixes from the master recordings. I'll have to double check my DVD. Haven't opened it yet.

    Yeah, I'm at work and couldn't remember if it's 2 channel or 5.1. I loved the interview with Peter Fonda. That guy's great.

    I purchased the 35th Annivsary Deluxe Edition and watched it today. Did anyone notice any glitches in the disc or heard of any? Curious because of some things I saw around 11:00 minutes or so into the movie.
