Jonathan Rhodes Lee has published an article in the latest issue of the international, refereed Journal of Musicology. Lee's contribution, "Texts, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll: Easy Rider and the Compilation Soundtrack," is the first musicological article to take the famous 1968 film as its primary focus. Lee draws on filmmaker commentary, critical writing about Easy Rider, as well as scholarship from popular culture studies, film studies, literary theory, and musicology to support his own interpretive readings of this film's interactions of image, music, and narrative. Lee also sketches out a general theory of inter- and intratextuality that might be applied to other films with popular compilation soundtracks, pointing out possible directions for further research.
