Watching it now (first time in like 35 years)...mostly still ridiculous/embarrassing, but it has its moments

<snip>

- Sandy Farina has kind of a 70s folk-pop-country kinda voice, and her performances of "Here Comes The Sun " and "Strawberry Fields Forever " make me wonder what @meanmistermustard woulda thought of this soundtrack if the producers had gone for Emmylou Harris instead.

The soundtrack would have two decent songs.

I think Emmylou could sing about haemorrhoid replacement therapy and I'd be happy.

- Possibly the first film EVER with a sequence (set in a record pressing plant) where its own soundtrack album is being pressed and shipped!

Amusing side note about said double-LP soundtrack via Wikipedia:

"The release made history as being the first record to "return platinum", with over four million copies of it taken off store shelves and shipped back to distributors.[5] Hundreds of thousands of copies of the album ended up being destroyed by RSO."

(don't cry for the Robert Stigwood Organization tho, they were rolling in money from the Grease and Saturday Night Fever soundtracks)

This movie is a drag, a well-known drag. I turned down the sound and say rude things about it. Didn't Susan Campy have a part in this?

What is happening? And tell me how you've been.

@meanmrmustard

Emmylou was one of my first star crushes. My mom had Elite Hotel and played it often. 

What is happening? And tell me how you've been.
