Album of the Day
Up In Smoke Motion Picture Soundtrack (40th Anniversary Edition)
In 1978, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong made their big screen debut in UP IN SMOKE, playing wannabe musicians who unwittingly smuggle a van made of marijuana from Mexico to L.A. Inspired by their now-legendary routines of the early '70s, the film was a smash hit that established the pair as the reigning comedy duo of a new generation. Retaining surprising cultural relevance, the stoner comedy classic now celebrates its 40th anniversary, and Rhino has just reissued its soundtrack. The original album featured songs like “Earache My Eye” “Framed” and the title track along with high-larious dialogue from the movie; the 40th anniversary edition of UP IN SMOKE adds a new recording of the title song and a previously unreleased version from 1978 with an additional Spanish verse by Cheech.
