Sandy Denny “Ballad of the Easy Rider”

“Ballad of Easy Rider” was written by Roger McGuinn for the 1969 film, Easy Rider. McGuinn sang a solo performance on the film soundtrack album and later with his band the Byrds.
But neither of McGuinn’s releases compare to the version Sandy Denny sang with the British folk rock band Fairport Convention. Their version of the song was included as a bonus track on the 2003 re-release of the band’s 1969 album, Unhalfbricking.
